Abstract
With the fate of our planet arguably hanging in the balance, An Inconvenient Truth may prove to be one of the most important and prescient documentaries of all time. As he jokingly refers to himself, "former President-elect" Al Gore felt an urgent personal calling to draw attention--as he had been doing throughout his political career--to the increasingly desperate crisis of global warming, and this riveting documentary is basically a filmed version of the PowerPoint lecture that Gore has presented (by his own estimate, well over 1,000 times) to attentive audiences all over the world. Considering Gore's amiable, low-key approach to charts, graphs, statistics, and photographs that leave no room for doubt regarding the reality (not "theory") of global warming as Earth's ultimate environmental crisis, many viewers will be surprised by just how fascinating and convincing this no-frills film really is.

Climatic changes
Abstract
Driven by speculation that planet Earth's average temperature could rise as much as six degrees Celsius by the year 2100, the filmmakers at National Geographic speculate about the effects that each new degree would have on both mankind and the world we live in. By highlighting the effects of global warming on such areas as the Amazonian rainforests and the ice fields of Greenland, experts offer chilling insight into the possibility that man's constant quest for energy could ultimately bring about our downfall. After separating the facts from controversial speculation, the time comes to explore the means by which man could use technology and other methods to try and prevent the planet from overheating.

Petroleum industry and trade
Abstract
Since the end of World War II, American families have steadily moved away from large cities into suburban areas, with little thought to the ecological costs of suburban life. Creating neighbourhoods with large single-family homes that require significant amounts of energy to heat and are located an inconvenient distance from schools, shopping centers, and employment districts that demand the daily use of automobiles, suburbs are remarkably inefficient communities built around the notion that fossil fuels will always be inexpensive and readily available. The End of Suburbia: Oil Depletion and the Collapse of the American Dream is a documentary which examines the rise of the suburban lifestyle, the costs to the Earth and the economy of our current living habits, where we may be headed, and how this situation can be remedied.
Notes
Special features include: vintage short films "In the suburbs" and "Destination earth", and commentary

Abstract
This unique 10 minute DVD sets out the scientific evidence linking common household pesticides to a variety of serious illnesses. It offers information form the Ontario College of Family Physicians' ground-breaking pesticide study and sets out safe lawn care alternatives. Excellent for showing at public meetings or for education local politicians. The province of Ontario has established a ban on cosmetic pesticides that will take effect on April 22, 2009 – Earth Day. Ontario residents will no longer be able to apply pesticides to lawns, gardens, parks or schoolyards. More than 250 products will be banned for sale and an estimated 80 pesticide ingredients will be banned for cosmetic uses in Ontario. Ontario is the second province to ban cosmetic pesticide use in Canada. Quebec enacted a similar ban in 2006.

Renewable energy sources
Abstract
Perhaps more than any other era, the early 21st century has forced society to face two troubling realities: civilization is dependent on oil, and oil is a finite resource. As the oil supply dwindles, the world must look to renewable sources of fuel, heat, and electricity. Among the most promising technologies include solar, wind, geothermal, and tidal powers. This program offers a behind-the-scenes look at the science behind renewable and environmentally sound methods of energy production.

Abstract
Is access to clean drinking water a basic human right, or a commodity that should be bought and sold like any other article of commerce? Stephanie Soechtig exams the big business of bottled water. Viewers get a behind-the-scenes look into the unregulated and unseen world of an industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never to become a commodity: our water. Here is a powerful portrait of the lives affected by the bottled water industry

Energy conservation
Abstract
The message of "Fuel" is clear: oil is bad, alternative energy is good. Its goals are simple: put Big Oil out of business, and sell the American public on the virtues of cleaner energy sources, such as wind, solar, and ethanol. Josh Tickell, an alternative-energy zealot, has both driven cross-country in a car powered only by fast-food cooking oil and written a book about it. His film is a combination of autobiography, first-person travelogue, history and ecology lesson, and a shamelessly inspirational call to action. Using charts, animated graphics and historical footage, Tickell ties our national obsession with oil to melting glaciers, melting economies, the Iraq war, Hurricane Katrina, and the collapse of the American way of life. Eleven years in the making (a shorter version appeared in 2008 as "Fields of Fuel") the film is not so much a green documentary as a red, white, and blue alarm.
