California is on the brink of a water war - and yet there is enough of this precious resource to go around if only we manage it properly. Tuna fisheries are crashing all over the world - but we can save the tuna without sacrificing the fishermen's livelihoods if we learn to cooperate on fishing limits, monitoring programs, and new technologies. The world needs energy - what combination of coal, oil, wind, solar, nuclear, thermal, hydro, and natural gas will allow us to encourage economic growth without using up limited resources or polluting our environment? Can we learn to reduce, reuse, and recycle before our landfills are overflowing? Our children will inherit a planet with a growing population and finite resources. We need to teach them how to think globally if they are to live in a sustainable world.
In 2010/2011, Karin Muller traveled across the USA and Europe, filming global issues from California's water struggles to disappearing glaciers in Switzerland. She found her way inside the nose cone of a wind turbine thirty stories off the ground, paddled the Great Dismal Swamp in North Carolina, and intercepted salmon runs in the pacific northwest. In addition, Karin donated footage from her acclaimed PBS documentary series of Japan's famous tuna auction, Tsukiji fish market (the largest seafood wholesaler in the world), and life aboard a Japanese fishing fleet. This footage is now available in four global environmental themes: Oceans, Water, Energy, and Climate.
