A Film by Amy Miller

"Recommended. A ground breaking documentary about the exchange of carbon credits resulting from Kyoto Protocol. It uncovers the truth behind this exchange on the global environment, as well as its economic impact on several developing countries, revealing global deception about environmental rehabilitation coupled with corruption of local governments."
– Science Books and Films (AAAS)

“One of the finest, most carefully researched and executed political exposés of the year. The Carbon Rush champions the voices of those most impacted by Western economic schemes designed to put band-aids on climate change while destroying communities and lives. It is an incredibly moving, empathetic and measured film that sticks inside you like a thorn that you want to do something about, that you must do something about."
– Ezra Winton, ART THREAT

"A brave and smart documentary which looks deeply into this burgeoning and profitable green scheme. The film has Miller casting her unflinching gaze upon both the supply and demand side of this little-known industry.”
– Dave Markland, RABBLE.CA

“The documentary is filled with shockingly corrupt examples … and sheds light on the state of environmental concern on the corporate level, without being overly alarmist.”

“This one will get you boiling. It shows again how we are shipping our climate change problems out of our sight. Big companies are buying carbon credits, which allow them to keep on emitting as much CO2 as always by supporting projects that reduce emissions in third world countries. Or so they say.”

“The Carbon Rush, exposes the offset projects that are impacting developing countries and their communities so that other nations can continue their industries relatively unchecked..”
