Resource Based Economy

The TROM documentary is trying to present, in a simplistic way, the world in which we, human beings, live. The world discovered so far, not some idea or personal choice. Moreover we tried to present alternative solutions to current problems and took into account the future, which promises to be more than interesting.
An informative documentary, perhaps shocking and disturbing to many, depending on how you digest the information.

How Did Life Begin?

“Where did we come from?” with host Neil DeGrasse Tyson explores the origin of our solar system and the start of life itself, how head lice figure in human evolution, and more. Journey back in time to the birth of our solar system to examine whether the key to our planet’s existence might have been the explosive shock wave of an ancient supernova. Meet a chemist who has yielded a new kind of “recipe” for natural processes to assemble and create the building blocks of life. And see how the head louse, a creepy critter that’s been sucking our blood for millions of years, is offering clues about our evolution. Finally, meet neuroscientist André Fenton, who is looking into erasing painful memories with an injection.

Powering the Planet

To consider the space solar power concept requires an understanding of science, technology, engineering, math, energy, policy, environmental factors, and more. Space solar power is an engineering project on a scale that rivals the greatest in history. Students need to be informed and able to participate in the conversation.

Shifting Sands

The Mojave- a landscape of extreme and fragile beauty- will encounter new challenges with the coming climate change. Desert field researchers tell the story in their words and share their experiences with us. Joshua trees, Bighorn sheep, pupfish, desert springs, and even the soil crust itself face new problems.

The Search For Earth-Like Planets

The search for Earth-like planets is reaching a fever-pitch. Does the evidence so far help shed light on the ancient question: Is the galaxy filled with life, or is Earth just a beautiful, lonely aberration? If things don’t work out on this planet Or if our itch to explore becomes unbearable at some point in the future Astronomers have recently found out what kind of galactic real estate might be available to us. Well have to develop advanced transport to land there, 20 light years away. The question right now: is it worth the trip?

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park

America’s Most Incredible National Parks: Yellowstone
Yellowstone National Park became the first national park in the U.S. when it was established in 1872. Many Americans consider it the quintessential American national park; its highlights include Old Faithful geyser, hot springs, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, and wildlife such as grizzlies, wolves, elk and bison. The park, spanning across parts of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, boasts about 10,000 hydrothermal features — half of the ones that exist in the world — among them 300 geysers.

Great Natural Wonders of the World

The earth is indeed an extraordinary planet, and not just because of the almost infinitely variety of life that is supports, its very fabric – the land itself – is marvelously varied and impressive. In this program, we’re going on a global journey in search of the greatest natural wonders of the world.

Long ago, the surface of the earth was born a fire. This was the raw material from which the face of our planet was created. Then over an immense length of time, the earth’s crust was shaped and reshaped by the forces of nature.

Its’ rocks have been carved by the powers of the elements, and by that great leveler, time itself. What we see around us today is the result of these unrelenting processes of natural erosion, a dramatic story of continuous change. The world we see now is the result of monumental changes that are barely detectable in our own brief lives.

The World According To Monsanto

monsanto

“THE WORLD ACCORDING TO MONSANTO ‘is investigating the U.S. multinational” Monsanto, the world leader in biotechnology and one of the most controversial companies in the industrial era. 90% of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) cultivated on the planet today, such as soybeans, canola, corn, cotton …, owned and run it the entire food chain it is can control. Monsanto GMOs have invaded the world and yet never applied agro-industry has generated so much passion and controversy. Why? What are the issues of GMOs? Risks or benefits for humanity? Based on unpublished documents and testimony of scientists, representatives of civil society, victims, lawyers, politicians, representatives of the Food and Drug Administration … in conducting surveys land among the peasants in India, Mexico, Paraguay, filmmaker Marie-Monique Robin – winner of the prestigious Albert Londres – has patiently assembled the pieces of a vast economic puzzle. The film reconstructs the genesis of an industrial empire became one of the first seed of the planet. It shows how, behind the image of clean and green society that describe the campaigns lies a hegemonic project that threaten world food security but also the ecological balance of the planet.

HAARP – Holes In Heaven?

Are we making Holes in Heaven? HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) is a controversial high frequency radio transmitter, or “ioniospheric heater,” which is believed to be descended from the works of Nikola Tesla and is operated by the U.S. Navy/Air Force and Phillip Laboratories in remote Gakona, Alaska.

Using HAARP, the military can focus a billion-watt pulsed radio beam into our upper atmosphere, ostensibly for ionospheric research. This procedure will form extremely low frequency waves and send them back to the Earth, enhancing communications with submarines and allowing us to “see” into the Earth, detecting anything from oil reserves to underground missile silos.

However, several researchers claim HAARP poses many dangers, including blowing thirty-mile holes in the Earth’s upper atmosphere. They also warn of possible disruption of the subtle magnetic energies of our Earth and ourselves.

“In an already hot scenario of global warming, extreme heating our atmosphere with high frequency radio wave technology might not be the best experimentation for studying our upper atmosphere for communications” – Paula Randol-Smith, Producer

Holes in Heaven? is a prime example of grassroots filmmaking by producer Paula Randol-Smith and Emmy-winning director Wendy Robbins. Narrated by Martin Sheen, the film, investigates HAARP, its history and implications, and examines the dangers and benefits of high and low frequencies and of electromagnetic technology.
