From the limitless subdivisions of Florida to sod farms in the arid southwest, Gimme Green peers behind the curtain of the $40-billion industry that fuels our nation's largest irrigated crop-the lawn. Written by E. Flagg

tongue in cheek look at green lawns...
23 May 2009 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Shown on sundance channel in May 2009, this is a tongue in cheek look at the water and chemicals being used to keep those lawns green. They make some good points, but they only discuss the evils of using all that water; In the interest of fairness, one could discuss the part those green lawns are playing in the C02/ oxygen exchange process, or the cooling of the atmosphere done by the lawns. In my part of town, if one plants anything EXCEPT plush, green, lawn, it has to be submitted to the town council for approval (this IS a tourist resort area, with numerous golf courses...) At one point, the directors show that if all the water on earth were to fit in a gallon jug, only 3 tablespoons would be fresh water. While this is certainly a startling fact, they also might have mentioned any pros and cons of desalination plants, currently being used by more and more countries. Entertaining short film by Eric Flagg and Isaac Brown.
