Big Ideas For A Small Planet
There'a a new series on the Sundance Channel that I'm liking quite a bit - Big Ideas For A Small Planet. Past shows have taken us behind the scenes at Google and Lexus, showing how their green technology saves natural resources, and highlighted gadgets that folks like us can use to cut energy consumption. There were some surprising revelations for me, ways to save big bucks on the electric and water bill. Tonight the focus is on animals - endangered species, local animal shelters, pet food, and their impact on our interconnected lives.
Animal lovers will especially enjoy tonight's half-hour - wait until you see the difference between a new, modern animal shelter facility and the kind we've been used to. People who look after unwanted animals are a special breed and this episode highlights the many challenges they face. And this show may make you think twice about the food you feed your pet.
