FEATURED IN THIS SPECIAL:
Outside the Box: Beyond Big Oil
Link TV’s original program Outside the Box with Peter Coyote: Beyond Big Oil explores the political, economic, health and environmental implications of living in an oil-centric society.  The program also investigates the viability of alternative technologies such as bio-diesel and vegetable oil.

Beyond Big Oil offers viewers a rare, ride-along conversation with singer and songwriter Willie Nelson, founder of a new bio-diesel fuel company, The Willie Nelson Biodiesel Company, on his eco-friendly concert tour bus. Coyote also visits a Hummer dealership, rides along with a young woman gathering vegetable oil from a local restaurant to power her diesel car and meets a spokesman from an African-American community in Richmond, California, that lives under the constant threat of toxic effluence from a huge oil refinery.

 

Global Warming: Bush's Climate of Fear
In this incendiary program , the BBC’s Hilary Andersson reports on claims from a U.S. government whistleblower that scientific findings about global warming have been systematically changed and suppressed. Some scientists are afraid that what they see as a cover up will leave it too late for the U.S. to have any hope of controlling climate changes brought about by global warming. Visit the BBC for more information.
