The Storm that drowned a city( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Featuring eyewitness testimony, Nova takes an in-depth look at what made Hurricane Katrina so deadly and analyzes how, despite technically sophisticated flood and storm defenses, this event has resulted in unprecedented destruction for the Gulf Coast. In less than 12 hours on August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated the Louisiana coast, leading to more than a thousand deaths and transforming a city of over one million into an uninhabitable swamp. "Storm That Drowned a City" is NOVA's definitive investigation into the science of Hurricane Katrina, combining a penetrating analysis of what went wrong with a dramatic, minute-by-minute unfolding of events told through eyewitness testimony. What made this storm so deadly? Will powerful hurricanes like Katrina strike more often? How accurately did scientists predict its impact, and why did the levees protecting New Orleans fail?

"Examines the cultural, economic and environmental impact of a transnational gold mining operation on a remote farming community in northeastern Guinea. Our two guides, the village chief and the head engineer of the mine, illustrate in telling detail the contrasting lifestyles and worldviews of global corporations and local, pre-industrial societies. Always in the background is the military regime of president Lansana Conté, in power since 1984, which granted the concession to the company. The film asks: who benefits when foreign extractive industries are invited to develop a country's natural resources?"--Container

Le monde selon Monsanto by Marie-Monique Robin( Visual )

Implantée dans quarante-six pays, Monsanto est devenue le leader mondial des OGM, mais aussi l'une des entreprises les plus controversées de l'histoire industrielle. Depuis sa création en 1901, la firme a accumulé des procès en raison de la toxicité de ses produits, mais se présente aujourd'hui comme une entreprise des ±sciences de la vieℓ convertie aux vertus du développement durable. À partir de documents inédits, de témoignages de victimes, de scientifiques et d'hommes politiques, Le monde selon Monsanto reconstitue la genèse d'un empire industriel qui, à grand renfort de mensonges, de collusion avec l'administration américaine, de pressions et de tentatives de corruption, est devenu le premier semencier du monde, permettant l'extension planétaire des cultures OGM sans aucun contrôle sérieux de leurs effets sur la nature et la santé humaine

Asbestos a slow death?( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From January 2005, the use and production of asbestos fibre is prohibited within the European Union! Asbestos is already banned in France as well as in most developed countries. Yet in the poorer Southern economies it is still widely used and accepted. Wherever asbestos has been in use, it is leaving a trail of devastation in its wake. In Europe, 500 000 will die from asbestos-related illnesses within the coming 30 years - 100 000 of them in France alone. For a long time, asbestos had been the favoured material of the engineering and construction industry: cheap, convenient and fireproof. Asbestos was in use everywhere, in electrical household appliances, buildings, factories and construction sites. Nevertheless, doctors have known for decades that asbestos was a health hazard and it became evident in the 70's that it could cause cancer. How is it possible that workers' health - or even that of entire populations - was treated with such contempt? How can we accept that the use of asbestos fibre continues to flourish in many countries of the southern hemisphere? Is human life an acceptable price to pay for profit? Today, like yesterday, pressure groups operate in the background. Our investigation conducted in Europe, Canada and Brazil shows those parties whose interest it is to keep the truth well hidden, to obstruct any open debate on the subject

Mr CO2 by Yves Billy( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summary: "This documentary may use whimsical animation to personify carbon dioxide emissions, but its message is dead-serious: if we fail to cut the rate of CO2 spewing into the atmosphere, we face a bleak future. MR. CO2 opens in Copenhagen, where the world's political leaders gather in December 2009 to try and hammer out a new carbon treaty to replace the Kyoto Accord. Joining them are activists and climate scientists, on-hand to press for action. They include Rajendra K. Pachauri, Chair of the International Panel on Climate Change, and Bill McKibben, founder of a movement aimed at lowering atmospheric carbon, who says at the conference, 'we are past the red line, the real debate is between human beings on the one hand, and physics and chemistry on the other.'" --Icarus website, viewed 28th October, 2011
