Carbon Nation is a 2010 documentary by Peter Byck about technological- and community-based energy solutions to the growing worldwide carbon footprint. The film is narrated by Bill Kurtis. Rather than highlighting the problems with use of fossil fuels, Carbon Nation presents a series of ways in which the 16 terawatts of energy the world consumes can be met while reducing or eliminating carbon-based sources. It contains optimistic interviews with experts in various fields, business CEOs, and sustainable energy supporters to present a compelling case for change while having a neutral, matter-of-fact explanation.

Financial crisis and the bailout
In the September, 2008 financial crisis AIG suffered a liquidity crisis. On September 16, 2008, the Federal Reserve exchanged a warrant for the purchase of 79.9% of AIG stock for an $85 billion line of credit. In May, 2009, the government increased available support by as much as $70 billion, plus a $60 billion credit line and $52.5 billion
to buy mortgage-based assets owned or guaranteed by AIG, increasing the total funds available to as much as $182.5 billion.Later it came to light that $90 billion of the money provided to AIG by the government went directly to banks, including non-American banks, including Goldman Sachs ($12.9 billion), France's Societe Generale ($11.9 billion), Germany's Deutsche Bank ($11.8 billion), and Britain's Barclays PLC ($8.5 billion). The bailout of AIG was largely a bailout of the banks and others that had made credit default swap bets with AIG, including Goldman Sachs.
Contribution to the crisis
The Real Economy Project needs your help filling this section out. Here's how.
AIG had taken on 440 billions of dollars in credit default swaps (CDS) with little or no reserves with which to make good on their liabilities. Along with having insufficient reserves the company had not protected itself by being on "both sides" of the CDS transaction, as other companies did, it only sold them. When the real estate prices began to fall, leading to the "mortgage meltdown," AIG was unprotected and owed the entire amount. The amounts owed to other banks inside and outside of the United States was sufficient to bring the entire world financial system into default. Bond CDS obligations totalled $440 billion, $80 billion in mortgage-backed securities.Bailout amounts
Initial $85 billion September 16, 2008.
May 2009: $70 billion plus $60 billion line of credit plus $52.5 billion to purchase mortgage-backed assets
From JF's website:
The Jamestown Foundation’s mission is to inform and educate policy makers and the broader policy community about events and trends in those societies which are strategically or tactically important to the United States and which frequently restrict access to such information. Utilizing indigenous and primary sources, Jamestown’s material is delivered without political bias, filter or agenda. It is often the only source of information which should be, but is not always, available through official or intelligence channels, especially in regard to Eurasia and terrorism.
Launched in 1984 after Jamestown's late president and founder William Geimer's work with Arkady Shevchenko, the highest-ranking Soviet official ever to defect when he left his position as undersecretary general of the United Nations, the Jamestown Foundation rapidly became the leading source of information about the inner workings of closed totalitarian societies.
Jamestown's work has contributed directly to the spread of democracy and personal freedom in the former Communist Bloc countries. In the 1980s the foundation assisted such key experts as former high-ranking Soviet diplomat Arkady Shevchenko, and former top Romanian intelligence officer Ion Pacepa, whose revelations about their governments -- which then directly challenged the United States -- were unprecedented and singularly important.
Jamestown ensured that both men published their insights and experience in what became bestselling books. Shevchenko's Breaking With Moscow revealed the details of Soviet arms control strategy and tactics, and diplomatic moves, at the height of the Cold War. And even today some credit Pacepa's revelations about Ceacescu in his bestselling book Red Horizons with the fall of that government and the freeing of Romania.
Over the past two decades, Jamestown has developed an extensive global network of such experts -- from the Black Sea to Siberia, from the Persian Gulf to the Pacific. This core of intellectual talent includes former high-ranking government officials and military officers, political scientists, journalists, scholars and economists. Their insight contributes significantly to policymakers engaged in addressing today's new and emerging global threats, including that from international terrorists.
