Summary
Netherlands Windmills- For six centuries picturesque windmills have graced the Netherlands' landscape. Not just pretty but functional also, the windmills powered pumps to drain water from low-lying land. Although modern technology has made the old mills pretty much obsolete, they remain a cultural symbol of the country and attract tourists from around the world. Le Mans Biofuel Car- Showing its stuff at a Norfolk race track is this prototype of a racing car that runs on a biodiesel developed by biofuels company, D1 Oils. Taiwan Recycling- From household appliances to bicycles and old furniture, Taiwan's recycling plant devours almost anything. The company was established with a 16 million US dollar investment from twelve major home appliance companies. It processes up to 60 percent of Taiwan's waste home appliances, recycling thousands of tonnes of metal, plastic and glass. Old bicycles and furniture are restored for sale. Urban Farmer- Some people just can't resist a challenge. Writer, Manny Howard, designed and constructed a mini-farm on his urban lot in Brooklyn. 'New York Magazine' set him the task of living solely off food produced on his tiny 75 square metre yard for a period of one month. Orangutan Baby- Indonesia's rapidly declining orangutan population has been boosted by one with the rare birth of this baby in an animal sanctuary. Elmo's human carer has a full-time job in meeting his needs. Green Building- Information technology giant, Wipro, considers its software development centre India's greenest building to date. The development, spread across 1.2 acres of land, has received international recognition for its many eco-friendly features. The building is a model of energy efficiency and environmental friendliness. It takes full advantage of natural lighting, with 75% of the building day-lit, including the spacious reception area. Trash Fashion- Trashy dressing took on a whole new meaning with this fashion show in Cambodia. On parade was rubbish--in a show to promote recycling. Drink cans, milk cartons and plastic were just some of the garbage items used in creative outfits. Polar Trek- The Arctic ice cap is melting rapidly and scientific predictions vary as to when it will completely disappear. One respected organisation calculates just 16 years. In an historic expedition, a team of three explorers will trek to the North Pole to take accurate measurements of the thickness of the ice cap. The Vanco Arctic Survey will enable accurate scientific modeling and also could serve as a wake-up call to world leaders
