I was listening to ‘Heal the World’ when I received a great email from the Earth Institute (how apt). It read:
How will the world continue to meet its energy needs as the global population swells and economies grow? We will likely need some combination of energy efficiency, low-carbon alternatives like solar, wind and nuclear power, and technologies to make the burning of coal less damaging to our world’s climate.
At the Earth Institute, researchers are investigating strategies like carbon capture and sequestration that are a critical part of a climate-friendly energy future. This update, the first in our new series of redesigned e-newsletters, provides an introduction to our work on this subject.

What a great idea! After all, knowledge is a prerequisite to action; without it, there is only a limited amount of things we can do for the environment.
I have to admit that the first webisode is pretty basic and at times a little childish. But it’s highly informative, easy to watch, and very easy to understand. It fulfills a great purpose. By making such a hot topic (pardon the pun) easily accessible to all ages and walks of life, the Earth Institute is empowering everyone and anyone to make the change and make the world a better place.
Great. Not I have ‘Man in the Mirror’ mixing up in my head with ‘Heal the World’. It’s going to be a long night.
Take a look at the first webisode here.
