Abstract

On Nov. 4, Americans elect Barack Obama, a president who campaigned on global warming and the urgent need to act.

Immediately, his administration sets up the "Green New Deal," a huge green energy initiative. America, the world's largest consumer of energy, is the worst polluter in the world... so does that mean they now are entering a new era? Sales of hybrid cars take off, wind farms and solar panels flourish throughout the country. Nike, Lewis, Coca-Cola, McDonalds, Walmart: all large U.S. companies communicate their desire to reduce their "carbon footprint". Has America become green? This film investigates on the "Greening" of the USA.
