As April 22 is Earth Day, the Pivot cable television network is offering programming on climate and environmental issues throughout the month. I have recorded the “Angry Planet” series airing this month on Pivot and what I have been able to watch so far is fantastic. “Angry Planet” is a 39-part television series hosted by environmentalist and adventurer George Kourounis. Each episode shows the stark effects of Earth’s evolving climate and the consequences of climate change for vulnerable populations. The series is taped for high-definition television, with stunning visual effects. Each episode in the series documents the unmistakeable changes that threaten Earth’s delicate eco-system.

The episode about India’s monsoon season depicts the hardships people suffer each year with increasingly severe storms. The episode filmedĀ in Cabo Verde depicts the hazards of people living dangerously close to an active volcano, as it is the only locale where they can eke out a living. The volcanic eruption sends lava into people’s homes, forcing them to evacuate and we see the frustrations and fears of peopleĀ then forced to live in tent camps when their homes are no longer habitable. It is compelling television and if you don’t have the Pivot network from your local cable provider, check it out on the Internet.
