Blue is the new black--or so Planet Green would have us believe, with their month-long Blue August television special focusing on all things aquatic. Planet Green will present water-themed documentaries and programs throughout August, with topics ranging from clean drinking water to the Great Barrier Reef.
Programming will include a special ocean-themed episode of Focus Earth with Bob Woodruff, Acid Test: The Challenge of Ocean Acidification with Sigourney Weaver, and Blue Planet, a series dedicated to Earth's marine environment and hosted by Sir David Attenborough. Partners and experts from PlanetGreen.com and TreeHugger.com will also contribute water-related content and commentary.
"Planet Green is shining a spotlight on the critical and complex role our oceans and water play in the health of our planet and to those who do and will in habit this earth," said Laura Michalchyshyn, president of Planet Green.
It all syncs up very nicely with our August cover story on the latest generation of manned submarines that will reach previously untouched ocean depths, opening one of earth's truly final frontiers.

Wow! I want to see that documentaries. Shows like these must have a wide audience to educate them about our environment. Environment-themed shows must have sufficient support from government to private citizen to disseminate information about our environment. A lot of people haven't heard about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is basically a patch of garbage, mostly decomposing plastic, in the Pacific Ocean, in the middle of the North Pacific Ocean Gyre – a gyre is an ocean area that several currents collide in to form a circular area – that is estimated to be up to twice the size of Texas. It is awful scenes like it that would make conservation and recycling seem worth some short term loans at least to vamp up. The size of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch will take a lot more than payday loans no faxing to clean up, and we must take better care of this earth.
