Summary
This documentary tells the story of Ranson Eli Olds, known as R.E. Olds, and the city where automobiles were first mass-produced. A pioneer of the American automotive industry, both Oldsmobile and REO were named after R.E. Although folklore claims it was Henry Ford who created the auto manufacturing industry in Detroit, this documentary shows that R.E. Olds, in fact, did it first in Lansing. Using historical photographs and film, interviews, and live footage, the story unfolds of a visionary thinker who created the basic concept for the modern assembly line, and a skilled labor force who transformed modern transportation.

Summary
Geoengineering is an ambitious set of methods proposed by scientists to help mitigate the effects of climate change. And one type in particulaŕђؤsolar geoengineerinǵђؤhas been the subject of growing debate. Solar geoengineering involves several techniques, including injecting reflective particles into the stratosphere to reduce the amount of solar radiation and heat that reaches the Earth. This process, some scientists claim, could lower global temperatures and slow climate change. Solar geoengineering would be inexpensive and effective, supporters argue, and could both minimize glacier melt and lessen the intensity of tropical storms. Opponents, on the other hand, argue that solar geoengineering does not address the underlying issues of climate change and warn that it could alter weather systems or possibly even cool the planet too much. They also worry about oversight and control, noting that any country could implement solar geoengineering, perhaps triggering unintended consequences that could affect the entire planet. Is engineering solar radiation a viable technique? Or is it a crazy idea?

Summary
The Internet is invading all aspects of your life. No longer confined to your computer or your phone, the Internet is now in garbage cans, refrigerators, and the infrastructure of our cities. The future will either be a surveillance nightmare or an eco-utopia, the outcome determined by startups in Silicon Valley and Shenzhen. This program captures our present moment, when both futures still seem possible.
