The Habitable Planet: A Systems Approach to Environmental Science Series (6:04:52)
This series begins
with an overview of the Earth's systems — geophysical, atmospheric,
oceanic, and ecosystems — as they exist independently of human
influence. Following this introduction, the series explores the effect
that human activities have on the different natural systems. Topics
include human population growth and resource use, increasing competition
for fresh water, and climate change.
Strange Days on Planet Earth Series (5:21:43)
Why would a one-degree rise in global temperature have dramatic, even
dangerous effects? What happens to an ecosystem when top predators
vanish? Why do invasive species cause such harm in their new
surroundings? Hosted and narrated by Academy Award nominee Edward
Norton, this six-part award-winning series uses engaging storytelling
and remarkable imagery to explore new discoveries about the health of
planet Earth. Each episode reveals the way seemingly distant events are
connected and, ultimately, how they can affect human health and society
Arctic Meltdown Series (2:12:48)
Global warming is opening a wealth of business opportunities in the
Arctic, but can the region handle the strain of massive industries? Who
will control the Arctic’s future—if it even has one? Narrated by David
Suzuki, a well-known Canadian scientist and activist, this three-part
series documents the drastic changes taking place in one of the planet’s
most sensitive ecosystems. Dr. Suzuki offers an urgent and eye-opening
look at the growing battle between environmentalists, entrepreneurs, and
nations vying for Arctic supremacy.
The NewsHour: Environmental Science (1:51:50)
Whether they arise from human causes or forces within planet Earth

to be growing frequency. This album of NewsHour segments studies
troubling developments in marine, arctic, wetland, and urban
environments—highlighting research opportunities that may help prevent
future catastrophes. Coral reef decay, Everglades habitat loss, polar
ice disappearance, and global warming are all analyzed. In addition, the
program looks at earthquake prediction, hurricane and tornado tracking,
air pollution monitoring, tsunami warning systems, and the cleanup of
toxic flood sediment in New Orleans.
