Aliens from planet earth : problem of invasive species ( visu )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 274 libraries worldwide
After direct habitat destruction, nonnative species introduced by humans to new areas pose the largest threat to global biodiversity. This program looks at how scientists and conservationists are coping with a number of these critical situations, such as on Seychelles, where rats have caused 200 years of devastation; on Scotland's Outer Hebrides, where hedgehogs were released to control garden slugs; and in New York City, where Asian longhorn beetles threaten not only Central Park but the forests of the entire east coast. Also examined are the political and economic difficulties of these species invasions when tensions arise between the interests of environmental protection and increasing trade
My City, Your City : a Senegalese Mayor Fights Sea Level Rise ( visu )
3 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 265 libraries worldwide
During the annual rainy season in Saint-Louis, one of Senegal's largest cities, thousands of people face upheaval from flood devastation linked to rising sea levels. There are no funds to build a cement sea wall, so the city dumps garbage along its waterfront in an attempt to shield itself. As mayor, Cheikh Bamba Dieye took on the responsibility of protecting his constituents from flooding, but with a severe lack of financial and infrastructural resources, the world stage became his principal weapon. Filmed prior to his appointment as Minister of Regional Planning in Senegal's national government, this program follows Mayor Dieye as he visits the imperiled streets, structures, and beaches of his city and as he travels to Mexico City to address the World Mayors Summit on Climate Change, hoping to focus global attention on the local impact of global warming. A meeting with host mayor Marcelo Ebrard brings out comparisons and contrasts in the ways that urban areas around the world face environmental challenges

Filmed in 11 countries, this collection of video segments spotlights Lydia Cacho, Casimira Rodriguez, and 14 other women who are making a difference in Southeast Asia, the Pacific, the Caribbean, and Latin America
Damming the Mekong ( visu )
7 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 264 libraries worldwide
Often thought of as the Amazon of Southeast Asia, the mighty Mekong River flows through six nations and is central to the livelihoods of some 60 million people. In Laos, plans have been drawn up for 11 hydroelectric dams along the river, with the government agreeing to sell 95 percent of the electricity to neighboring Thailand. The envisioned construction projects and energy-centered commerce would create an unprecedented level of economic activity for the nation and alleviate a degree of the region's poverty. However, the dams may also cause devastating ecological damage and the dismantling of entire villages. This program travels to the site of the planned Xayaburi Dam in northern Laos, as well as to the capital city of Vientiane and other locations, to sift through the issues involved and determine whether or not the country's political and environmental leaders can find a solution. Presented and narrated by Thitarat Sriwattanapong, a Thai-born environmental studies Ph. D. candidate based in Laos
Plundering the oceans ( visu )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 246 libraries worldwide
Almost without exception, fishing grounds all over the world are being recklessly exploited. This program brings the global problem to light, making clear that our planet is approaching an environmental crisis. It examines methods that are widespread in India's fisheries, including the use of nets so finely meshed that even seawater only trickles out; it also explores the waters of the Mediterranean and the North Atlantic, where tuna and cod populations are not only shrinking but quite possibly doomed. The assault by land-based polluters on coastal fishing areas is documented as well. Industry's self-destructive approach is perhaps best exemplified by a story from Bali, where new hotels were made from local coral-leaving fish species without a habitat and snorkeling tourists with no fish to see

"After 20 years of devastation wrought by oil companies in the Amazon basin of Ecuador, Dallas-based Maxus Energy promises to be the first company to protect the rainforest and the people who live there. Here is the story of how Maxus set out to convince the Huaorani, known as the fiercest tribe in the Amazon, to allow drilling on their land"--SBS-TV program guide Aerial
Boiling point : global struggle for water ( visu )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 239 libraries worldwide
Competition for freshwater is heating up. Is war inevitable, or is a peaceful solution possible? This program spotlights three trouble spots that epitomize the intensifying crisis and efforts being made to manage it: the Okavango, where a commission formed by Angola, Namibia, and Botswana is trying to resolve the conflict that is endangering the river's unspoiled waters; the Rio Grande, where an aging water-sharing treaty and ever-greater demands for water leave farmers on both sides of the divide with little hope; and the West Bank, where Palestinian rainwater reservoirs and the Israeli water grid are dangerous points of contention between the two peoples
