Light Up the World tells the story of America's endeavors to alleviate their reliance and dependency on foreign countries for its energy needs. A Massive hydroelectric project of the scope the world has never seen before is being built in the furthest northern regions of Quebec. Funded by huge American oil conglomerates, tobacco companies, and other international institutions, project HOPE (Hydro Ocean Powered Eletcricity) will generate enough electrical power to satisy more than half of North America's energy needs. Everything was going to plan until the unexpected happened....
Author/narrator Robert C. Brewster seemlessly weaves us in and out of two totally different cultures. The amazing range of his voice renders to life characters so real and vivid that you will actually feel you really know these people.
Will greed for profits overshadow the tremendous loss of human lives that would surely occur if dollars were more important than lost souls? How far would they go to insure that project HOPE went ahead on schedule? Could they really be stopped considering their unlimited resources?
Light Up the World answers those questions and proposes viable solutions to this contemporary problem. It's unexpected ending will leave listners more than satisfied. In an energy-starved world whose basic existence depends on mass consumption, renewable energy sources are an undeniable factor for its very continuance. This story offers us hope, but also spells out the necessities that must be taken to insure that that day will soon arrive.
