If the world's population lived as we do here in Ireland, it would take almost 4 planets to satisfy our demand for resources. The drive to consume and then dispose is a defining characteristic of modern society and although Ireland has taken large steps toward redressing our waste, we still have a ways to go. This penultimate episode of Eco Eye 13 examines how we can no longer afford to see our waste as something to be disposed of and forgotten. After visiting a recycling centre outside Copenhagen Duncan returns to Ireland to discover that people. environmental groups and even companies across the country are rethinking waste and what it means for us and the environmen

Banned in the UK! This documentary was shown on German and French TV but not in England. For obvious reasons the English don't want anyone to see it. This is the English version which we hope you will mirror and call attention to. It discusses the effects of sea dumping of radioactive waste on the health of people living on the local coasts, like the Irish Sea and the Baltic Sea, which is the most radioactive sea in the world. The documentary focuses on the British sea dumping in the English Channel Hurd Deep about 12 miles north of the Channel Island of Alderney.

Prof Chris Busby who was consulted on the health effects of this marine ...
