For the past 20 years, the world has seen an alarming decrease in IQ and a rise of autism and behavioral disorders. A international scientific investigation reveals how chemicals in objects surrounding us disrupt the endocrine system in our body, and in turn affect our brain, and especially those of fetuses. How can we stop this worrying trend?

    • 解構大氣候(下)




      In the last episode, scientists analyzed the Earth's climate situation up until now. This time, they are going to predict the future, starting with polar ice. They find out that global warming is leading to melting glaciers and rising sea levels. As a result, low-lying islands and cities may drown. Warmer oceans also threaten the survival of corals and other marine creatures. Faced with this global predicament, some are developing a new form of solar energy that enables everything to generate power; some are trying to recycle CO2 and reduce emissions. Can we un-change the climate before it is too late?

    • 解構大氣候(上)




      Disastrous hurricanes. Widespread droughts and wildfires. Pervasive heat. And extreme rainfall. Many scientists therefore agree these are the results of the weather machine itself – our climate – changing. However, some are still skeptical of this theory. In this episode, scientists will prove that our weather is indeed becoming hotter, more erratic, and that human activity is causing it.

    • 未來學校:腦力提升




      With the emergence of technologies that can explore the human brain in vivo, researchers are trying to revolutionise education through brain science. They are discovering why some children cannot focus in class sometimes, and how to improve their attention span with simple exercises. Research results also reveal why being curious, making mistakes and getting enough sleep are so important to learning. Now, some scientists are developing learning applications based on their findings – can these tools really help students read better?

    • 解毒大地




      Nuclear accidents severely damage the environment and soil for decades at least. Previously fertile soil and land that once provided a habitat for fauna and flora then become a source of poison.
      But it is not just radioactivity that causes irreparable damage to our lands, intensive farming also causes this slow but sure poisoning. Use of pesticides and toxic fertilisers, the cultivation of plants and crops that are inappropriate for the soil type and, ultimately, damage to the environment and biodiversity are evident in every field!

    • 救救森林



      In regions that are prone to wildfires, such as the areas around the Mediterranean Basin, the fight to save species is underway. After the ravages of the flames, programmes aimed at reforestation and reintroduction of animal species are being conducted by biologists, agronomists and environmental specialists. How are they reforesting entire woods and also making them more fireproof? To protect biodiversity, scientists are assessing wildfires’ impact on local animals. Some insects take advantage of the disasters and spread in burnt forests. Some other creatures lose their habitats after the fires, like the endangered Iberian lynx. Can scientists save them from a bigger crisis?

    • 水源修復



      Water is at the heart of life itself and of biodiversity.  If it is polluted or there is a shortage of water, then many ecosystems will come under threat. The environmental disaster in Brazil in November 2015, caused by the failure of a mining dam, devastated not only the species along the rivers, but might also pose a threat to the sea turtles that laid eggs on the beaches nearby. Associations and volunteers have been attempting to repair the immense damage done to the environment. In Africa, it is beset with water shortage. Therefore, many countries are now committed to an impossible mission: building a forest on the edge of the desert to help combat droughts. Can the scientists fix the water and rescue its ecosystems?

    • 第一個美洲人




      One unlucky day 13,000 years ago, a malnourished teenager missed her footing and tumbled to the bottom of a 100-foot pit deep inside a cave in Mexico’s Yucatán. Rising seas flooded the cave and cut it off from the outside world—until a team of divers chanced upon her nearly complete skeleton in 2007. Intricate detective work reveals that the young woman’s bones are among the earliest known human remains in the Americas. What drove her to venture nearly a mile underground inside a vast cave? Where did her people come from, and why would she look so distinct from today’s Native Americans? From a stunning Mexico cave to the genetics lab, new clues are being discovered, rewriting the story of the forgotten first people who ventured into the Americas.
