Episode Details

Equally applicable to classes in science or contemporary issues, Race to Save the Planet provides a comprehensive, global overview of major environmental questions ranging from population growth to soil erosion and from the destruction of forests to the possibility of long-term climatic changes. Filmed on every continent, the programs focus on solutions, constructive ideas, and new approaches from leadin scientists, economists, politicians, and environmental activists. The series provides viewers and students with scientific background on each topic and inspiration to contribute to preserving the environment through their own activities.
Australia, Indonesia, West Africa, and the American Midwest are rediscovering traditional farming practices and using science and technology to work with nature, not conquer it.
