Learn how we impact the Earth.

Over an average lifetime, each one of us will have a huge impact on the world around us. This unique film, presented by Elizabeth Vargas, delivers an extraordinary personal audit revealing just how much, how many, and how often we use and consume the world's resources. Imagine all those loaves of bread, burgers, soda cans and consumer goods we get through and much more. Using the chronology of our lives as our editorial spine, from fossil fuels to beauty products, from beer consumption to Christmas presents, the programme tells the story of the human footprint of the average American. And what's more, it lays out all those products we get through in extraordinary visual events for all of us to see.
