"As he takes office on January 20, 2009, President Obama must deliver on an ambitious campaign pledge to fight global warming. He need look no farther than California, where Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is already leading the way with a dramatic and controversial program to slash carbon dioxide emissions and promote energy efficiency. In this program, NOVA explores the pros and cons of California's bold approach, which could be adopted nationwide during the Obama administration. To examine the California initiative, NOVA conducts in-depth interviews with Governor Schwarzenegger, skeptics and supporters of the plan, and ordinary citizens and businesspeople whose lives will change significantly when the new regulations take effect."--NOVA website

Kampf der Geschlechter( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gibt es sie wirklich, die typisch männlichen und typisch weiblichen Verhaltensmuster? Kann man wirklich von einem starken und einem schwachen Geschlecht sprechen? Mithilfe neuster wissenschaftlicher Erkenntnisse ergründet der Film, inwieweit das Geschlecht den Menschen prägt. Vom frühen embryonalen Stadium bis an ihr Lebensende entwickeln Männer und Frauen Fähigkeiten und Verhaltensweisen, die für ihre geschlechtliche Identität charakteristisch sind. Der Film schaut Forschern bei der Arbeit über die Schulter und lüftet anhand von Computeranimationen und visuellen Tests so manches Geheimnis des anderen Geschlechts. Der erste Teil der Dokumentation zeigt die völlig unterschiedliche Evolution von Männern und Frauen. Die zahlreichen physiologischen Unterschiede betreffen unter anderem Gehirn, Muskeln und sexuelles Verlangen. Die Kontrolle, die unsere Hormone von der Zeugung bis zur Pubertät über unseren Körper haben, belegt, wie sehr unsere Entwicklung vorprogrammiert ist. Verhaltensexperimente (Tests, bei denen es um Schnelligkeit, Kraft und Synchronisationsvermögen geht) verdeutlichen die Kluft, die uns von Geburt an vom jeweils anderen Geschlecht trennt. Anhand der Untersuchung der Lebensweise eines traditionellen Stammes aus Tansania zeigt der Film, warum die Evolution von Männern und Frauen so unterschiedlich verlaufen ist.
