Since 1960, The Nature of Things has informed the Canadian public on the issues, achievements, wonders and dangers of our changing world. The documentaries included in this first volume focus on what is being done - and what we CAN do - to change they way we live and the way we think about the future of our world. In these episodes you will learn about electric cars, using the sun's rays for energy, windmills, waterfalls, natural and renewable energy ... these are all solutions aimed at reducing our carbon footprint and society's impact on the environment, helping to create a sustainable future. You'll find out how to better design your house by using sustainable materials and more effective insulation, how we can learn from the technology of the past as well as the future, how we can better plan our cities and transportation systems. Finally, you'll also observe that the solutions to our problems lie within our immediate grasp, that Visions of the Future, exist and are at work all around us.
