How far will humans have to go to save our planet?

'Mankind is currently defying all four basic elements to engineer big, useful, ambitious, and environmentally friendly projects that will shape our future on planet Earth and even plant the seeds for the colonization of other planets.

Episode 1, Masdar City: Abu Dhabi, one of the most polluting cities on Earth, is the biggest of the United Arab Emirates sitting in the heart of the oil-rich Persian Gulf. Despite its reputation, Abu Dhabi recently announced one of the most ambitious development projects in the world. The construction of Masdar, the world's first zero-carbon, zero-waste, car-free city. The 22 billion dollar project when it's finished in 2016, will be home to 40,000 people, an academic institute, a manufacturing hub for solar power and desalination, have no greenhouse gas emissions, no waste, and a personal transport system instead of cars. This episode focuses on the process of creating such a unique utopia.

Episode 2, Earth Power: Before running out of oil, we better have a look under our feet, where lies a clean and inexhaustible source of energy: the heat of the Earth! The volcanic and wet country of Iceland has plenty of steam to turn into electricity, it's the Saudi Arabia of geothermal. Markus, a foreman in charge of building cooling towers, essential pieces on the giant plant of Hellisheidi, deals all year long with a tight schedule, storms, and... a lethal poisonous gas. Gretar, the geologist, has to map the underground and inform drillers how to provide daily more power to the plant. All of them together are tapping tens of steam wells one mile down and deeper, laying miles of pipes, and installing more generators. Iceland plans to become before 2050 the first nation to free itself from fossil fuels. Watch their effort to meet this goal.'
