The FBI investigation of FIFA began before the infamous vote in 2010, but in the year and a half the investigation's been open, they learned very little because they haven't had this person who can tell them what's happening. Chuck Blazer was the guy they needed. He was an American association football administrator, who held a number of high-level positions before becoming a government informant on widespread corruption within organized football after being accused of massive fraud during their years as CONCACAF executive.

FIFA Uncovered: Second Episode

(Click CC for subtitles) Joseph Sepp Blatter wins a dubious victory as FIFA president. As South Africa is chosen to host the 2010 Cup, rumors swirl around executive Jack Warner.
FIFA is really powerful because it's got the World Cup. And countries fall over themselves to try and host the World Cup in their country. It gives their country image building that you just can't achieve with anything else. The World Cup is the only one event in the world which is broadcasted in the majority of countries. I don't think you can imagine about something else bringing one million people in the street. And the World Cup is the number one way for FIFA to make money. So, because of the power of the biggest football event around the world every four years that gives FIFA and the FIFA president real power and so much leverage over actual countries. But that power is a trap for corruption.

The last chapter explains how the 2010s became another lost decade in the fight against climate change – as the move to natural gas delayed a transition to more renewable sources of energy.
Engineer Tony Ingraffea, in the 1980s, helped develop a new technique for extracting gas and oil from shale rock, which ultimately became known as 'Fracking'. It was to unleash vast new reserves of fossil fuels and was promoted as a cleaner energy source. But Ingraffea explains how he later came to regret his work when he realized that gas could be even worse for climate change than coal and oil.
Dar-Lon Chang, a former ExxonMobil engineer, speaks for the first time on camera alleging that as the company increased its natural gas operations, it was not sufficiently monitoring methane leaks that were contributing to climate change. Now, after a year of unprecedented wildfires, drought and other climate-related disasters, multiple lawsuits are being brought in US courts in efforts to hold Big Oil legally accountable for the climate crisis.
