Summary:
Watch as some of the world's leading scientists put the most ambitious geo-engineering ideas to the test in order to tackle global climate change. From covering acres of Greenland's glaciers in protective blankets to constructing space rockets to sending tiny reflective lenses into orbit, these experiments push the boundaries of science and technology by exploring eight creative ideas that just might reduce global warming.

Oceans cover seventy percent of our planet and are one of the most important carbon sinks we have, but the phytoplankton that convert carbon dioxide into living matter are declining. Dr. Brian von Herzen of The Climate Foundation joins forces with some of the world's foremost oceanographers--Professor David Karl of the University of Hawaii and Professor Ricardo Letelier of Oregon State University--to deploy three wave-powered pumps. They head into the huge swells of the North Pacific in an attempt to restore the critical natural mixing effect of the ocean.

Only available in the US.
