Deep Water Disaster: the Untold Story
Horizon reveals the untold story of the 87-day battle to kill the Deepwater Horizon oil blowout a mile beneath the waves – a crisis that became America’s worst environmental disaster.
Engineers and oil men at the heart of the operation talk for the first time about the colossal engineering challenges they faced and how they had to improvise under extreme pressure.
They tell of how they used household junk, discarded steel boxes and giant underwater cutting shears to stop the oil. It’s an operation that one insider likens to the rescue of Apollo 13.

Cleantech Future
What if we could live in a clean world? A world in which energy would be 100% renewable, water no longer polluted, transportation truly green and production methods clean and regenerative?
There will be such a world. In this documentary VPRO Backlight explores the unprecedented possibilities of a new industrial revolution: Cleantech.
Signs of a new future are visible everywhere, from China to the US and from Europe to Thailand. Green mobility powered by sustainable energy, clean drinking water for all thanks to nanotechnology, dyeing textiles using recycled CO2.
All of this is possible and is happening successfully now! Working together with Cleantech founder Nick Parker, this film shows what our world will be like in the decades to come. VPRO Backlight travels the world in search of a clean future.

Do the Math
We know what the solutions for dealing with this trouble are; we know many of the technologies we need to get off fossil fuel and onto something else. The thing that is preventing us from doing it is the enormous political power wielded by those who have made and are making vast windfall profits off of fossil fuels.
Like most people, Bill (environmentalist and co-founder of 350.org), is not an activist by nature. There are really not that many people whose greatest desire it to go out and fight the system. His theory of change was that he’d write his book, people would read it and they’ll change. But that’s not how change happens. What is required is to make a little noise, be a little uncomfortable, and push other people to be a little uncomfortable. The moment has come where we have to take a real stance, because we’re reaching limits.
