- Reducing Water Pollution – This program focuses on the protection of Puget Sound – a national ecological treasure – through the efforts of Washington’s Office of Shellfish and Water Protection; a TV station that raises environmental awareness by reporting on the Sound; a nonprofit organization that educates the public about the Sound’s ecosystem; and a local shellfish farm that sustainably harvests oysters.
- Combating Climate Change and Improving Air Quality – This program spotlights Pennsylvania, where a regional transportation authority is using hybrid buses to reduce emission levels, a legal firm is practicing environmental law, and a company is making storage batteries for solar and wind farms using clean manufacturing practices. The program also travels to Colorado, where the National Renewable Energy Laboratory is pursuing research into the development of alternative energy.
