Developing nations turn on the power!

Electricity is so much a part of our daily routine in the developed world that itís hard to imagine life without it. Itís much more than just lights and television, or the internet...electricity plays a factor in health and well-being.

Travel to Issidan Izdar, a tiny village in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco to see what life is like without power. Then visit the neighboring village of Tamayousst, which connected to a power grid several years ago, to see what a difference electric makes in daily life for those in developing parts of world.

Some fear this increased demand for energy will harm the planet. But what about the harm to people who live without it? Can we object to the developing worldís rise out of poverty and increased standard of living?
