Green Eye

Earth CSI

 

They go wherever crimes against the earth remain unsolved.

The Scene

Using cutting edge forensic tools, a skeptical eye and a detective’s nose for cover-ups, our investigative team take us to the scenes of mysterious and unusual disasters to find the truth.

 

A fish kill in Alaska that no one takes responsibility for, a cancer epidemic in Tasmania’s famed ‘Tassie Devil’, a bloom of deadly cyanobacteria in Sweden that grows larger each year – if the people or animals affected can’t get the truth, he’ll be there to find it.

 

Our approach blends old fashioned detective work with science and crackling technology. We interview witnesses and victims, ‘kick the dirt’ at the scene of the crime and follow each lead till it peters out or strikes gold.

 

But the team have some tools that take us into a new world of detective work. Computer modeling of a fish kill’s origins, a NASA Earth Observing System picture of the cyanobacteria’s spread, computer enhanced images of the spray drift over the polluted waterways and DNA trackings of the doomed Tassie Devil..

 

With high end CGI, infra-red aerials, satellite imagery, immersive personal interviews and ultra-macro cinematography, we’re taken on a breathtaking tour of the earth – and the attacks it faces each day.

The Stories

Tasmania, Australia. An oyster kill, dying trees and the sweater of a farmer’s wife – these and are the only clues they have to solve the mystery of the deadly cancer that killing the ‘Tassie Devils’.

 

The Baltic Coast of Sweden. Each summer, blooms of cyanobacteria turn the Baltic Sea into a stinking, yellow-brown slush that locals call "rhubarb soup." Dead fish bob in the surf. If people get too close, their eyes burn and they have trouble breathing. But where’s it coming from?

 

The Arctic. A slow brown cloud is spreading over the Arctic’s southern regions. Do we look to the south to find the cause – or under the freezing oceans?

The World: fireweed under water.

The Team

A mixed, international group, hopefully headed by a ‘father figure’ type.

They have both environmental cred and scientific smarts - Dr Paul Ehrlich comes to mind.
