Forget about your 401 (k). Forget about that little Dow Jones number in the corner of the TV screen that almost always has a minus sign in front of it. Forget about the sudden media interest in the Great Depression and Herbert Hoover's presidency. We've got an hour's worth of good news for you.
For the past year, CNN's Miles O'Brien has searched high and low for Solutions: ideas, inventions, and people that have stemmed environmental impact and in most cases, saved a little money to boot.
"Green Warriors: The Fight for Solutions" airs on CNN/US at 6 p.m. ET Saturday Nov. 22, and again at 2 p.m. ET on Sunday, the 23rd. CNN's international audience can catch the show at 10 p.m. ET Saturday.
We visited a guy in El Paso whose growing business is, well, growing pond scum. The algae can be converted into diesel fuel. Another segment profiles a wildlife officer who pretty much singlehandedly restored the bald eagle population in New York State. In other segments, you'll see old tires turned into new products, soda bottles turned into carpet, and as a result, garbage turned into money.
The "Solutions" series has its own page on CNN.com here. Enjoy.
