Episode Guide

1. Managing Carbon Dioxide: The Geologic Solution — The documentary tells the story of geologic CO2 sequestration. What began as a search for oil became the story of a geologic CO2 enhanced oil recoversy and geologic CO2 sequestrion – a 100 year journey from a drill hole venting CO2 in the desert of northern New Mexico to a technology for managing carbon dioxide emissions from large industrial sources like power plants.  

2. Out of the Air-Into the Soil: Land Practices that Reduce Atmospheric Carbon — This 30-minute documentary shows examples from North and South American where effective landscape management is helping plants to absorb carbon as a first step toward reducing our carbon footprint.

3. Nature In The Balance: CO2 Sequestration — This 30-minute feature is full of information on anthropogenic CO2: what it is, where it comes from, and what we can do to control it. The documentary also provides information on the U.S. Department of Energy National Energy Technology Laboratory’s seven Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships and their role in assessing opportunities for carbon sequestration across North America.

4. Reducing Our Carbon Footprint: The Role Of Markets — This 30-minute feature is full of information on anthropogenic (human) CO2 emissions, including where they come from and how markets are playing a role in reducing emissions. The documentary also provides information on the U.S. Department of Energy National Energy Technology Laboratory’s seven Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships and their role in assessing opportunities for carbon sequestration across North America.
