The Shape of Our Water (Episode #208H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Apr 29, 2018 -- 5:30 AM

We all have the right to clean drinking water. Yet while some of us take this for granted, others struggle. Representatives from the NRDC (National Resources Defense Council) and the NAACP show us why this is such a challenge. We meet with residents of Uniontown, Alabama, a low-income community that received a massive amount of coal ash after a spill in Tennessee. Residents share their experiences with health issues, loss of property values, and striving to find clean water since the construction of a toxic waste landfill. And in Baltimore, Maryland, Mr. Trashwheel is not only cleaning up the inner harbor, but it is using googly eyes and social media to raise awareness about water pollution all over the world.

What Lies Beneath (Episode #207H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Apr 29, 2018 -- 5:00 AM

Understanding how we affect the ocean can be a challenge since most of what happens lies beneath the surface. In this episode, we travel to Charleston, South Carolina where locals have united to protect their coast from seismic blasting and oil exploration. We meet the self-professed "coral nerd" and a filmmaker of the "Chasing Coral" documentary, and the intrepid entrepreneurs of 4Ocean, whose passion for fishing, surfing, and diving inspired an ocean cleanup company in south Florida.

Environmental Justice (Episode #206H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Apr 22, 2018 -- 5:30 AM

People of color and low wealth communities are often hit hardest by environmental stressors. EcoSense explores the intersection of environmentalism and the social justice movement with representatives from the Partnership for Southern Equity and the NAACP. In Atlanta, the birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we meet members of the West Atlanta Watershed Alliance, a group that works hard to build and maintain a clean and healthy environment within its community.

Solar Justice (Episode #205H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Apr 22, 2018 -- 5:00 AM

As the price of solar energy technology drops, people are finding creative ways to tap into one of our most abundant resources. Just how much of our energy can come from solar and will it truly be accessible for all? We'll visit a "solar sheep farm" in eastern North Carolina that's boosting renewable energy and grass-fed lamb production. In Atlanta, Georgia, Interfaith Power & Light works with congregations that feel a moral obligation to clean up the planet. And we check out creative applications of solar, from solarized stadium car parks to community solar for all.
