As the world's top two carbon emitters, China and the US, face significant challenges reducing their carbon emissions while keeping up with each nation's growing demand for more energy. Is there the potential for cooperation between both Pacific Rim nations around this important issue, or is each nation seeking its own distinct solutions? This documentary shows how people from universities, non-governmental organizations and industries in both countries can learn from each other as they work to reduce CO2 emissions, increase energy efficiency, create new methods to produce renewable energy, and conserve natural resources. Filmed on locations in China and Silicon Valley (California), it shows why clean-technology solutions to climate change problems can only be effective if they also address the underlying social values which hinder or enable those solutions to be integrated into the everyday lives of members of each society.
