Our Plant Earth

The NewsHour: Environmental Science

  • Amazing Planet - Unlike some of the colorless rocks and featureless gas balls that populate the Solar System, Earth is vibrant in color and motion, startling in its variety of shapes and textures, and awe-inspiring in its grace and power. This three-part series employs fabulous footage and spectacular computer animations to illustrate the effects of environmental forces over geologic spans of time.
  • Cambridge Core Science Series: GeoBasics - As oil supplies dwindle, as catastrophic weather events multiply, as the ozone layer grows thinner, Earth needs geologists, geophysicists, environmentalists, and other researchers as never before! Magnificent location footage and satellite images, explanations by experts in the field, and animated diagrams that simplify complicated processes make GeoBasics a valuable addition to any study of the Earth, its systems, and humankind’s impact.
  • Deep Earth: How Earth Made Us-The Untold Story of History - Throughout history, human settlements and societies have been strangely drawn to fault lines, those mysterious places where the Earth’s crust reveals its tenuous nature, and to other areas that connect the surface of the planet with its deep interior.
  • Violent Earth - Like any celestial body, the Earth was born in violence. But our lowly human perspective creates the impression that our planet is stable, that our atmosphere will always nurture and protect us. How naive are such expectations? This program gives viewers a harrowing look at our “pale blue dot” as it experiences more destructive natural disasters with each passing year. From visits to areas affected by the 2004 southeast Asian tsunami to investigations of the massive fault threatening Istanbul, the film gets to the bottom of some key questions, such as: Is life on Earth getting more dangerous? And, what can we do to prevent future calamities? (53 minutes)
