The Age of Stupid (coming January '09)

CRUDE - The Incredible Journey of Oil (Australia)

In Burning the Future: Coal in America, writer/director David Novack examines the explosive conflict between the coal industry and residents of West Virginia. Confronted by emerging “clean coal” energy policies, local activists watch a world blind to the devastation caused by coal's extraction. Faced with toxic ground water, the obliteration of 1.4 million acres of mountains, and a government that appeases industry, our heroes demonstrate a strength of purpose and character in their improbable fight to arouse the nation's help in protecting their mountains, saving their families, and preserving their way of life.

http://dirtthemovie.org/ "Dirt! The Movie is an insightful and timely film that tells the story of the glorious and unappreciated material beneath our feet. One teaspoon of dirt contains a billion organisms working in remarkable balance to maintain and sustain a series of complex, thriving communities that impact our daily lives. Inspired by William Bryant Logan’s acclaimed book Dirt: The Ecstatic Skin of the Earth, Dirt! The Movie takes a humorous and substantial look into the history and current state of the living organic matter that we come from and will later return to. An eclectic group of participants ranging from biologists to prisoners incarcerated on Rikers Island offer answers to problems and inspire us to clean up the mess that we’ve created. Dirt! The Movie will make you want to get dirty."
http://everythingscool.org/index.phpEVERYTHING'S COOL is a film about America finally "getting" global warming in the wake of the most dangerous chasm ever to emerge between scientific understanding and political action. While industry funded nay-sayers sing what just might be their swan song of pseudo- scientific deception, a group of global warming messengers are on a high stakes quest to find the iconic image, the magic language, the points of leverage that will finally create the political will to move the United States from its reliance on fossil fuels to the new clean energy economy - AND FAST.

Burning Season: Carbon Entrepreneurs

In this WIDE ANGLE web exclusive, we’ll hear from three different carbon entrepreneurs from around the world, each with his own plan for using market forces to protect the environment — Jake Whitcomb of Brighter Planet in Middlebury, Vermont; Shawn Burns of Carbon Credit Corp in Vancouver, Canada; and Dave Sag of Carbon Planet in Australia.

But first, we’ll talk with David Victor. He’s a senior fellow for science and technology at the Council on Foreign Relations, the director of the Program on Energy and Sustainable Development at Stanford University, and serves as an adviser to the Obama campaign.
