The Blind watchmaker the evolutionary ideas of Richard Dawkins ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"British biologist Richard Dawkins is blunt in his support for evolutionary theory as opposed to 'special creationism.' This program, inspired by Dawkins' book, allows each side to present its best arguments - with some bias toward Darwinian evolution ... Creationist ideas are vividly contrasted with contradictory data through observation, computer simulations, robotics, experiments, and close examination of designs in nature. The central argument here is that the diversity we see in such complex adaptations as the eye and insect mimicry can best be explained by cumulative natural selection over long periods of time."--Http://ffh.films.com

The Greenhouse effect ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas adds more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. This colourless, odourless, naturally occurring gas turns the atmosphere into a giant greenhouse, trapping more of the sun's heat and raising the temperature each year. So far, estimates suggest the temperature has risen by half a degree centigrade, but by the year 2050 it could be up by three or four degrees. Many things will change in a chain reaction: sea level; crop growth; rainfall. There appears to be no simple solutions because the greenhouse effect is caused by by one of the most basic of human activities - the generation of power
