An amazing, award-winning video (v2.0) by (then) child-filmmakers Stephen and Trace, about nuclear weapons.
Please watch with your children, please forward so children see this wonderful short film, re-broadcast with permission from Trace's Mom.
Stephen and Trace (now much older teenagers) were disappointed in the amount of information their school taught about the U.S. bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. So, they decided to find out more all on their own! Now they share with you what they found.

These street kids ran up to us.
They were great, and hungry and also being kids. At first, they faked some crying, then they were mostly curious....and some were supposed to be in school - at 11:00am Monday. They all had energy, they were all great...they also had a 'handler' woman telling them what to do... See how it turned out.

From toys, to shampoo bottles, to bread wrappers, to car parts, to our shoes and clothes, plastic is everywhere!
But what happens to all that plastic when we are done with it? Where does it end up? People have said that 90% of plastic ever produced is still around today. See the unexpected place Pierre has found our plastic leftovers.
Across the Pacific Ocean and the other great oceans of the world, we find huge piles of garbage collecting along the shorelines - and at the centers of huge ocean currents as they circulate.
Many animals are killed by this trash, this garbage of rope and nets and bottles and shoes - all the stuff we forget, that washes out to sea.
Pierrre and Krista find these on the South Point of the Big Island of Hawai'i.
Run Time: 2 min. 48 sec.

It's the year 2075 and Pierre and Mother Earth have found that the ice has melted off of Antartica. Where did it all go? Why did we let the world warm up? Pierre takes a silly look at global warming.
In the year 2075 AD, Pierre and Mother Earth visit New-New York, located on a mountain top in Antarctica, one of the few dry places left on Earth since all the glaciers melted and flooded the world.

Music of the spring peepers (frogs) in a forest wetland. These frogs are signs of a healthy ecosystem.
This was filmed at a "vernal pool," that usually lasts only for a few months during the spring. If there is enough rain, many young animals like frogs live and grow in these pools, in the wet parts of the Northern Hemisphere, in spring.
Their voices tell us a lot about how it is possible for humanity and the natural world to co-exist. Spring is near in the Northern Hemisphere.
