End of The Woods

Sunday September 22, 4pm | Episode 2, “End of the Woods” (first aired April 20, 2014): Schwarzenegger accompanies the “hot shots”, elite firefighters in Western US forests, as they risk their lives fighting the fire season made longer and more destructive by global warming, as fire regions expand from the southwest US further north into Canada. He learns that even more destruction is caused by the proliferation of bark beetles, as longer summers enable them to reproduce up to twice each year and kill trees with their toxic secretions. Meanwhile, Ford continues his quest to stop Indonesian deforestation and the carbon emissions and displacement of animals and people that it causes, confronting officials including Indonesia’s forestry minister, Zulkifli Hasan, and its president, whom he persuades, with the help of the TV cameras, to take “real action”. He also gets sustainability commitments from officers of Unilever, a major user of palm oil. We also see how Greenpeace and other environmental groups are making a real and positive difference.[17][18][19][20]
