PBS Series Examines how Green Living Drives Economies

This morning I viewed one of the episodes of PBS’ acclaimed series e2. Narrated by Brad Pitt the program is a must see for those interested in learning more about livable, sustainable cities.  Here’s PBS’ description of the series:

is an ongoing PBS series about the economies of being environmentally conscious. Shot in high definition with cinematic lenses, e² chronicles global efforts to solve pressing ecological challenges. From energy consumption to design efficiency, policy to industry, the series documents the innovators whose work is reducing humans’ impact on the environment. Interviews with experts, policymakers and pioneers across a variety of disciplines offer a firsthand account of the complex environmental challenges that we face, as well as the possibility that pragmatic solutions are within reach.

As a treat for you, I’ve downloaded to this post some wonderful pictures from the series, courtesy of PBS.org. Click on each picture to see larger views.
