Inhabit

Humanity is more than ever threatened by its own actions; we hear a lot about the need to minimize footprints and to reduce our impact. But what if our footprints were beneficial? What if we could meet human needs while increasing the health and well-being of our planet? This is the premise behind permaculture: a design process based on the replication of patterns found in nature. INHABIT explores the many environmental issues facing us today and examines solutions that are being applied using the ecological design lens of permaculture. Focused mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States, Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes.

The Carbon Rush

The Carbon Rush focuses on the multi-billion dollar carbon industry and the pollution and suffering caused by carbon trading around the world. Hundreds of hydroelectric dams in Panama. Incinerators burning garbage in India. Biogas extracted from palm oil in Honduras. Eucalyptus forests harvested for charcoal in Brazil. What do these projects have in common? They are all receiving carbon credits for offsetting pollution created somewhere else. But what impact are these offsets having? Are they actually reducing emissions? And what about the people and the communities where these projects have been set up?

The Carbon Rush takes us around the world to meet the people most impacted. They are the least heard in the cacophony surrounding in this emerging “green-gold” multi-billion dollar carbon industry. From indigenous rain forest dwellers having their way of life completely threatened, to dozens of Campesinos assassinated, to the livelihood of waste pickers at landfills taken away, The Carbon Rush travels across four continents and brings us up close to projects working through the United Nations, Kyoto Protocol designed Clean Development Mechanism.

This groundbreaking documentary feature asks the fundamental questions. What happens when we manipulate markets to solve the climate crisis? Who stands to gain and who stands to suffer?

Clean Energy

http://supadupa.tv - A short 25 min video by the PAOV site administrator on a nearly century old technology almost completely overlooked by most mainstream clean energy advocates.  This technology uses Solar, Geothermal  or other renewable energy sources to convert Nitrogen from the air, Hydrogen from water into a liquid fuel with similar chemical properties of propane and has been used in gas and diesel internal combustion engines and will be used in ceramic(no platinum) fuel cells of the future.
