Carbon Rush \ Amy Miller
There are more than 5,000 carbon-offset projects registered by the United Nations and funded by multinational companies that try to compensate for their environmental impacts. Director Amy Miller details how eucalyptus plantations, hydroelectric dams and other projects in developing countries can violate basic human rights, cause further ecological damage and devastate the lives of underprivileged indigenous people, who often aren’t consulted about offset concepts on their land.
