Summary
In response to the oil crisis of the 1970s, Brazil created a domestic ethanol industry that is now thriving on all levels-from production to distribution at gas stations to nationwide adoption of flex-fuel cars. As a result, Brazil has become energy self-sufficient as a nation. This program examines what America can learn from Brazil's agri-industrial success and asks: is the system really applicable outside Brazil and to what degree can the rest of the world emulate it?
