Summary:
When we make stuff, stuff happens. Acclaimed "Science Guy" Bill Nye examines the everyday stuff of our lives and the far-reaching effects our actions have on the planet. Teachers can utilize the keen delivery of Bill Nye to help students understand human interaction with the environment, the ways in which our own technology can help or hurt the environment, and actions we can implement to improve our use of resources.

Bill Nye reminds us that even the seemingly innocent things we do to keep our lawns green and our pools clean have unintended environmental consequences. The program looks at the composition and hidden cost of using common backyard equipment, including gas-powered gardening tools, fertilizers, herbicides, peat moss, mosquito coils, charcoal briquettes, and the garden hose.

Only available in the US.
