Lower prices helped democratize air travel, but flying is one of the most carbon-heavy actions a person can take. We look at Sweden's No Fly campaign, take a journey on a night train and visit a city in Spain that is mostly car free.
Living Planet: Adaptation & Change
How do we inspire the fundamental changes that are needed to safeguard our planet? On this program, we look at some novel ideas, from restoring peatlands to their natural state to climate change resistant apples.
Living Planet: Not so fantastic
Today on the show, we're taking a look at our plastic world — from the oceans, to its place in our homes, to its original source. What can we do now about our plastic problems and what do we still need to figure out?
Living Planet: Extinction and invasion
This week on Living Planet, we hear about the people protesting extinction — our own, to be exact. And we examine how climate change is bringing insects and the diseases they carry to new places around the world.
Living Planet: Struggle for survival
This week, we look at how melting sea ice is threatening the survival of polar bears in the Arctic, and ask what impact shrinking glaciers will have on Switzerland's hydroelectric power supply. We'll also meet UNDP goodwill ambassador Olafur Eliasson, and find out how illegal mining is destroying India's fragile Aravali mountains.
