Strange Days on Planet Earth

This video is an excerpt of the episode Plastic Plague from National Geographic's Strange Days on Planet Earth 2. We have watched all of the episodes from season 1 and 2 over the past month... and wow, talk about eye opening information! The first season has four 1 hour episodes covering invasive species, climate change, the role of predators, and rivers/oceans. The second season has 2 episodes and investigates what is happening to all the fish, our water sources, the impacts of plastic in our oceans.

I highly recommend this docu-series, I found each episode fascinating (not boring). I think everyone should watch them - really they should be handing these DVDs out for free. We rented them from Netflix, since we missed when they aired on PBS. You can read more about this series, and what you can do at the Strange Days website.


  1. Hey Jennifer,

    I am sorry for contacting you here, but I couldn't find your email anywhere.

    I read your interest in green shopping with GAS ( on TreeHugger today, and really wanted to talk with you about it and get some of your feedback. I've had feedback from computer people, but non from people who are deep into green (except myself) like you.

    If you'd like to talk about this, please email me at this address: tal (at) talater (dot) com


    P.S - Just to stay on topic with this post... I loved Strange Days on Planet Earth. The episode on alien species, in particular, has been on my mind and influenced me deeply since I watched it.
