Three decades ago, Sustainability was not a word that many came across, but it was then that forward-thinking Texas oilman, George Mitchell, was asking some tough questions: how will we continue to feed our ever-expanding global population? How will we avoid depleting our world’s vital natural resources? How can we continue producing the energy we need without destroying our planet? In this film, we explore the history of the Sustainability movement by interviewing leading voices from academia, science and business, and we continue to ask George Mitchell’s hard questions going forward.
