Building the Future (Cities and Pollution)

Building the Future (Cities and Pollution)

"Recommended. This excellent documentary can challenge viewers' imagination as to how to deal with future problems facing the world's cities." -NAMTC & NMM Review
The global population is predicted to rise by a third in the next fifty years, to 9 billion people. Half the world already lives in urban areas; so it's clear we'll need twice as many cities as we have. However, our cities consume a staggering 75% of resources and discharge 75% of all waste. Pollution is causing illness, global warming, extreme weather, and destroying ozone; something must change. This program examines the cutting-edge achievements being made in the Green Technology Revolution and explores the pioneering work now being developed to help society strike a practical balance between exploitation and conservation to create the sustainable city of the future. 05/07DE JSCA 30 min.
