    National Geographic
    National Geographic Videos present clips of the national world with the assurance of quality carried by all National Geographic productions. National Geographic was founded over 120 years ago as a society on a mission "to increase and diffuse geographic knowledge while promoting the conservation of the world's cultural, historical, and natural resources." Shortly after the initial group of academics and wealthy patrons began meeting to discuss world travel, The National Geographic Magazine saw its first publication, and the forward-thinking society embarked on a journey to provide high-quality ecological writing and photography to the public, expanding the common knowledge of the natural world-past, present, and possible future. This journey has since led to the creation of other magazines, such as National Geographic World, later renamed National Geographic Kids. The National Geographic Channel was created in 1997 to broadcast premium programs on TV, and National Geographic Films produces original feature films and documentaries. In keeping with the society's desire to create informative productions in all forms of popular media, National Geographic established a YouTube channel, presenting short videos of the natural world.moreless

    NBC
    Days of Our Lives: Think Green is a public service announcement series from NBC that features all the current stars of the long-running and much-loved soap opera Days of Our Lives, who appear to speak frankly about the myriad benefits of reconstructing aspects of your life to reduce your negative impact on the environment. These actors have all made efforts in their own lives to reduce their carbon footprint, lessen their daily energy usage, and make the many small changes we all can make to help save the planet and move our society in a positive direction. You don't have to be a millionaire to make a difference in the Eco movement; there are plenty of changes you can make to your daily life that will seriously help the world and won't mean buying a new car or having a new furnace installed. These small changes come in a great many forms. For instance, you can consider buying an inexpensive push mower for your lawn, allowing you to get rid of the old gas guzzler. Also, you can get rid of your old energy-sucking light bulbs and light your home with compact fluorescents. Some of these stars recommend changes that won't cost you anything. In fact, some of them, like being stricter with your water usage, will help the planet and save you a few dollars.moreless

The most interesting experiments include the use of a jet pack to defy gravity and the mentos and coke experiment, which was done absent a bottle top. With each procedure, the home-grown scientist offer an explanation regarding why the experiments work or why they don't.moreless
