directors/producers: John DeGraaf and Jack Hamann
(57 minutes) U.S.A.
Twenty-six years after the first Earth Day, public enthusiasm
for environmental protection seems to be at a standstill. People have
become tired of endless confrontation and cynical about spending
on projects like Superfund only to find that much of the money ends up
the pockets of lawyers. Could there be another approachone that
real hope for progress in solving environmental problems?
Green Plans takes a close look at two countries - the Netherlands and
Zealand - that have moved beyond the rhetoric toward sustainability with
bold and innovative environmental programs.
Jack Hamann is in his seventh season as a correspondent for CNN's
Environment Unit, and its weekly newsmagazines, Earth Matters and
John de Graaf has been producing documentaries for US public television
for commercial television 21 years. Many of his documentaries have dealt
with environmental subjects. The most recent, Affluenza and Escape from
Affluenza, aired on PBS.
