Green Matters: Beetles, Doctors’ Warning, Coal Mine Fire (2007)

Episode 23
Available worldwide

Beetles coexisted with dinosaurs, but, some 300 million year later, they’re still around, and researchers are using DNA and fossil evidence to construct a family tree. A small business in Accra, the capital city of Ghana, is dealing with the plastic packaging overload by turning the plastic into practical and decorative handbags. As part of Beijing’s effort to stage a green Olympic Games in 2008, novel solutions were needed to deal with the more than 400 tons of horse manure produced during the equestrian events. An underground fire in a coal mine in Pennsylvania has been burning for almost half a century. When doctors gathered at the U.K.’s Royal College of Physicians, serious concerns were expressed about the impending – and largely unrecognized – dangers to human health from global warming.
