PLAN B 2.0: RESCUING A PLANET UNDER STRESS AND A CIVILIZATION IN TROUBLE, BOOK PRESENTATION AT GOOGLE HQ
This video shows author-researcher Lester Brown, president of the Earth Policy Institute, presenting his book Plan B 2.0: revised and updated, at Google headquarters. The book explores many of the flaws in the current global economy which make it fundamentally unsustainable, and presents a new way forward, with a raft of solutions that can allow global society to change course, build a new economy, and move toward a sustainable future.
The presentation is packed with information, news and policy developments, strategies for improving the environmental situation across the globe, data on the crisis facing the world as the most populous emerging economies comprehensively industrialize (China and India, each with over 1 billion in population). The litany of statistics and figures is more dramatic than wonky, always eye-opening, as with Lester's writing. (54 minutes)
Sentido anticipates increasing convergence between moving and broadcast media and the static, readable internet. It is with this in mind that we have begun planning the launch of a "Sentido TV" digital platform for online posting and reader download of moving news footage and reporting.
Sentido's aim to extend its service into broadcast format multimedia stems from the belief that information is valuable in itself and that providing information over multiple channels liberates the audience that consumes such information. Sentido will not reduce its textual offerings, but will provide enhanced complementary audio-visual coverage of key stories.
