Earth Focus:Can We Live Within Our Planet's Boundaries?

Can We Live Within Our Planet's Boundaries?
28:08 | 2009

Categories: Documentary, Shorts, Science and Environment

Earth Focus reports from the 2009 Tallberg Forum in Sweden, which explores if we can live within our planet's boundaries. Is there a plausible Plan B?

Also in Sweden, the 2009 Stockholm Water Prize was awarded to Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak who made flushable toilets available to millions in India.

Earth Focus correspondent Miles Benson interviews Jonathan Dorn of the Earth Policy Institute about green jobs, new energy, sustainability, and the potential for a ""green economy"" in the United States, as well as in developing nations.

The Netherlands has more farm animals per square kilometer than any other country. Learn about the MRSA staph infection and its impact on our insatiable appetite for cheap meat. The pig farming industry in Europe is clearly divided over the matter.

America's 931 national parks, which house much of our country's biological diversity, are currently being threatened by outside sources. Miles Benson interviews James Nations, the Vice President of the Center for State of the Parks (NPCA), about the challenges the national park system faces.
