Published Los Angeles, CA : TMW Media, 2017


Description 1 online resource (25 min.)
Summary This program explores the Earth's forests, from the effects of deforestation and palm oil production, to forestry gardening and sustainable business practices. Trees are the lungs of our planet but we keep cutting them down? Find out the effects of deforestation. Did you know that a chocolate bar is responsible for the near extinction of the Orangutan? Find out why. We will also teach you how to garden the forest, introduce you to cosmetic company who are washing their hands of palm oil, and an urban tree salvage company that saves trees. Fifty years ago, about 15% of the planet's land surface was covered by a rain forest. Today, more than half of that has gone up in smoke. 12-15 million hectares of forest are lost every year. That is the equivalent of 36 football fields per minute. If that trend continues, the Amazon will be gone in 50 years. So what is deforestation and why should we care?
