Two New Energy Programs on PBS

I recently had the chance to preview the NEW PBS special titled EARTH: THE OPERATORS’ MANUAL which will air on April 10, 2011 at 10PM on PBS.  In this program,  geologist and renowned climate communicator, Richard Alley, provides an “accurate, understandable and upbeat report on the interlinked stories of humans and fossil fuels, Earth’s climate history and our future energy options.”  After this program debuts on PBS educators can find segments of the program available for download, with rights to use them in class with students through April 10, 2012.   View PBS Trailer.

A companion book is also available.

On April 20, 2011 on PBS, a NOVA Special titled Power Surge will air.

Here is a description of the film from the PBS website:

“Are we finally on the brink of a green-energy “power surge? From solar panel factories in China to a carbon capture-and-storage facility in the Sahara desert to massive wind and solar installations in the United States, NOVA travels the globe to reveal the surprising technologies that just might turn back the clock on climate change. NOVA will focus on the latest and greatest innovations, including everything from artificial trees to green reboots of familiar technologies like coal and nuclear energy. Can our technology, which helped create this problem, now solve it?”
