"The transition is possible. The only precondition: We need to want it!" Sun, wind, hydro and geothermal power are natural energy sources accessible to people all over the world. What's more is that they are free and sustainable. THE 4TH REVOLUTION: ENERGY AUTONOMY systematically and engagingly outlines the tantalising possibility of switching to 100% renewable energy sources within the next 30 years. The film's protagonists encompass a prominent environmental activist, Nobel laureates, innovative businessmen and politicians and it convincingly shows that the energy revolution is the surest path to sustainable economic development and social and economic fairness.
