There are times when our role as energy consumers is clear. For instance, when we fill our cars' fuel tanks, the amount of money we spend makes it obvious how much gas we areusing. But what we seldom think about is the energy we consume by simply living our lives ina developed society. In this video segment adapted from NOVA/FRONTLINE, experts estimate the amount of energy that is burned during daily activities, and how much CO2 those activities contribute to the atmosphere.
This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
