      Comments about X-Ray Earth DVD-R:

      An excellent demonstration of how different living organisms makes use of proven patterns found in nature that man has defined with mathematical formulas (fractals, fibonnaci series, golden ratio) and use them to monitor their health, quantity along with a good idea of the condition of their environment. NG has somehow managed to package all this and more into a presentation that I feel would be easy to comprehend by the average viewer.

      Unsettling transformations are sweeping across the planet, and clue by clue, investigators are discovering ways that seemingly disparate events are connected. Crumbling houses in New Orleans are linked to voracious creatures from southern China. An asthma epidemic in the Caribbean is connected to dust storms in Africa. Erratic behavior of olive baboons in Ghana is linked to human overfishing of the world's oceans.

      Strange Days on Planet Earth explores the ways in which human life has affected the planet and how globally connected problems are personally relevant and urgent. It brings into focus the realization that the decisions we make today will affect all life on Earth for years to come. Actor-writer-director Edward Norton hosts six eye-opening episodes, each uncovering explanations behind some of today's most puzzling environmental changes.
