The nice thing about Google Video is its increasing use as a repository for older television specials and programs. Such is the case with this 55-minute special, narrated and hosted by Alanis Morissette, that aired back in November of 2005 on PBS. From the site description,
“Filmed in the United States, Asia and South America, this wide-ranging, compelling and accessible program brings the reality of climate change to life and offers viewers inspiring examples of people who are making a difference in their own communities.
The program features numerous science experts who review a growing body of evidence of the grave consequences of a changing climate, and explores how individuals, communities and organizations across America are creating new approaches to safeguard future generations.”
So while the program is over a year old, it’s still a relevant look at the people making a difference — and the communities joining forces to battle climate change. We’re not exactly sure of the legality surrounding placing this video online (nor how long it will stay there), but for now enjoy a little education from Alanis.
No word yet on when The Great Warming (starring Keanu Reeves and Alanis) will hit online. Stay tuned!
