Kids eating burgers in Los Angeles. Surfers in Australia. Indians in the Amazon.
What in the world do they have in common?
Earth is a unique program demonstrating the amazing
interdependence of human, natural, and technological systems.
Hosted entirely by young people, this unusual video travels the world examining
three of today's most critical environmental issues: deforestation, global
warming, and ozone depletion. These abstract concepts are made immediate
and personally relevant. With increased understanding and awareness, viewers
are challenged to "get involved and make a difference."
Spaceship Earth features international rock star Sting, an articulate spokesman
for the rainforests. The program is an excellent discussion
starter, fast-paced, factual, and entertaining.
