  • Blue Sky Dreaming

    5 June 2008

    In a Special Programme for World Environment Day, TVE's Earth Report goes to New Zealand to investigate the country's plans to go carbon neutral.

  • The Great Warming

    5 May 2004

    The 1990's was the warmest decade in the last 1000 years. At the same time, the amount of carbon in Earth's atmosphere is higher than it has been in 420,000 years. And it is still climbing. Told through stories of real people around the world, The Great Warming not only explores the science, consequence and solutions of climate change, but also looks at exciting ideas and technologies that will create a truly sustainable future.

  • Sila Alangotok: Inuit Observations on Climate Change

    28 February 2001

    Unusual species of fish, birds, animals and insects; melting permafrost; a disappearing lake; thinning ice; and unprecedented reports of Arctic lightning storms are among dozens of climate change-related impacts in the Far North documented in Sila Alangotok: Inuit Observations on Climate Change, a dramatic new video released in the run-up to the Climate Change conference in the Hague last November (2000).

  • Climate films

    5 February 2001

    With the issue of climate change gaining ground in the media, the Television Trust for the Environment (TVE) has produced four programmes on climate change, as part of their Earth Report series, (to be broadcast on BBC World this May [2001]).

  • USA - Change in the Air

    5 February 2001

    Though accounting for just four per cent of the world's population, the gas-guzzling United States produces close to a quarter of the world's greenhouse gases. Unsurprisingly it is the target of bitter criticism from other nations that claim they are adhering to the Kyoto targets.

  • Emission Impossible

    5 February 2001

    Earth Report asked Australian film-maker, Ian Henschke, to give a Southern Hemisphere view on global climate change. Henschke's film starts in the United States, a major source of greenhouse gases.

  • Arctic warning

    5 February 2001

    Over the centuries many explorers have died battling the icy wastes which stretch two thousand miles across the North Pole, but now it's the Arctic pack ice that faces defeat at the hands of man. Global warning, due largely to greenhouse gases, is taking its toll.

  • No doubt at all

    5 February 2001

    The world's nations emerged from Kyoto in 1997 with an agreement by the industrialised nations designed to stabilise and then reduce greenhouse gases. At the Bonn meeting of 161 governments we find that little progress has been made, especially in the United States where there is no sign that its mighty 25 per cent share of the world's energy use is likely to be reduced.

  • After Kyoto

    5 February 2001

    Did the world emerge from the Kyoto summit with an agreement that will mark the start of an effective response to climate change caused by the build-up of greenhouse gases? Or was it merely a political fudge?

  • El Niño - Vision of the Future

    5 February 2001

    El Niño is the name of a natural phenomenon found around the Pacific Ocean region. A series of heat movements, El Niño is a seasonal alteration of the ocean atmosphere system, effecting rain patterns and temperature, especially off the shores of Equador and Peru.
