Segments in this Video

Whitechapel Blockage (03:21)


Fatbergs form when sanitary items and oils congeal; they stop drains and cause ecological problems. In London, experts remove a fatberg weighing 130 tons from the sewers.

Electric Automobiles (03:22)

Chris and Julie Ramsey drive the Mongol Rally route in an electric car, journeying 10,000 miles without producing emissions. Less than one percent of the world’s passenger vehicles run on electricity. Scotland aspires to phase out fossil fuel burning engines by 2032.

Fatberg Recycling and Protecting Wildlife (05:39)

Workers transport London’s sewage to a biofuel refinery where it is heated and distilled. Anton Mzimba risks his life to guard animals on the Timbavati Private Reserve. He fears rhino extinction.

Restart Project (02:53)

People generate 50 million metric tons of e-waste annually; it takes 12,760 liters of water to make one smart phone.

Urban Environmentalism (04:18)

Biofuels are blended with diesel to run London buses, vastly reducing emissions. In the Bronx, Mary Mattingly formed SWALE to convert community spaces to gardens; for 100 years, it was illegal to pick food in New York’s public areas.
