In today's China, the economics of feudalism and communism are out, while capitalism is in. Old walls are being torn down, and a futuristic landscape of glass and steel is shooting up in their place.
A machine or filtering system which extracts carbon dioxide from the air and stores it underground could be the holy grail of climate science. Although the idea was first proposed in 1999, scientists have so far failed to demonstrate a scrubber technology that's economic, energy-efficient and that won't cost the Earth. Until now.
The World Debate puts the important questions to representatives from global politics, finance, business, the arts, media and other areas. The panels and contributing audiences discuss topical themes.
This refreshingly honest, optimistic and powerful film provides a fascinating insight into what global warming really means for the future of the world and the pioneering developments which might well alter its course.
