La ruée vers le carbone

À PROPOS

Des centaines de barrages hydroélectriques au Panama. Incinérateurs brûlant des ordures en Inde. Biogaz extrait de l'huile de palme au Honduras. Forêts d'eucalyptus décimées pour le charbon de bois au Brésil. Qu'est-ce que ces projets ont en commun? Ils reçoivent tous des crédits de carbone pour compenser la pollution créée ailleurs. Mais quel est l'impact de ces compensations? Réduisent-elles réellement les émissions? Et qu'en est-il des personnes et des communautés où ces projets ont été mis en place?

THE CARBON RUSH nous emmène à travers le monde pour rencontrer les personnes les plus impactées. Ils sont les moins entendus dans la cacophonie qui entoure cette nouvelle industrie du carbone «verte-or» de plusieurs milliards de dollars. Des habitants Autochtones des forêts tropicales dont le mode de vie est complètement menace, aux dizaines de Campesinos assassinés, en passant par les moyens de subsistance des récupérateurs de déchets dans les décharges emportées, LA RUÉE DU CARBONE parcourt quatre continents et nous rapproche des projets menés par le biais des Nations Unies, le Mécanisme de développement durable conçu par le Protocole de Kyoto. Ce documentaire révolutionnaire pose les questions fondamentales «Que se passe-t-il lorsque nous manipulons les marchés pour résoudre la crise climatique? Qui a tout à gagner et qui devra souffrir? »
