Green Matters: Pineapple Cloth, Body Heat, Flood Defense (2007)

Episode 22
Available worldwide

In a centuries-old tradition, Philippine women weave cloth from pineapple leaves. Two mud volcanoes on Java – one bountiful, one toxic. Four Western Lowland Gorillas in a South African zoo go home to Cameroon at last, five years after, as babies, they were found clinging to their dead mothers after an attack by poachers. Body heat, “collected” from the 250,000 passengers who pass through Central Station in Stockholm, will be used to heat an office building next door. A pair of 3-million-year-old Mastodon tusks, unusually large at more than 15 feet in length, was excavated near a small village in northern Greece. British officials face a major challenge preventing serious flooding from Humber Estuary’s rising tide levels.
