Editorial Reviews

From the prairies of Saskatchewan to a Manhattan skyscraper we'll see the 21st Century's cutting-edge "green" technologies in action. New technologies such as carbon sequestration and bioremediation take on our most daunting environmental crises, from global warming and deforestation to nuclear waste and resource scarcity. See how blue-green algae are converted into automotive biofuel and methane from decomposing garbage is turned into clean-burning natural gas. Finally, we'll see how trees and other natural environments can be used as engineering materials to control flooding and rejuvenate dying rivers.

Too much stuff on global warming makes me sad. It doesn't make me want to work for change; it gives me the impression that there is nothing that could be done to reverse things. I love when environmental discussion give suggestions and not just doomsaying. This is that type of work.

This documentary goes into using algae and others things to reduce greenhouse gases. It also shows that humans can do things to get rid of land dumps and toxic waste. No one hates science classes more than me, so I'm glad non-techies could understand this discussion. I heard that there is now an AP Environmental Science class in high schools. Perhaps teachers could show this documentary on the first day of that class.

This work is diverse in terms of geography: it gave good news about New York City and not just the deserts in Arizona. However, the interviewees were not diverse. There were two women and no people of color interviewed. My guess is that environmental action would be improved if more diverse groups were involved in it.

I loved this video!
It has great ideas & a few plugs for companies involved in good clean neo-tech contemporary housing!
I only hope that Wisconsin uses Arizona' idea of turning their carbon emissions from the paper factory into algae for biofuel!
I'm getting Environmental Tech II!
You have got to get this video!

Great movie about green technology and sustainable architecture featuring some buildings in NYC and elsewhere. One of the better movies I've shown my middle school technology class.
