Summary: DRYING FOR FREEDOM is about our right to protect the planet. With a worldwide focus on cutting carbon emissions, why are communities across America preventing people from using a clothesline? How would you respond if you were banned from being environmentally friendly? DRYING FOR FREEDOM reveals the story of our love affair with energy, the people who are campaigning against it, the rules society has created to sustain it and the destruction it is causing our planet. It explores how outdoor clothes drying is banned in communities across the USA and how corporate America sold its citizens the dream of electric bliss in the 1950s, a dream which is now America's biggest export, signifying that our future is hanging on the line.
