Dog Day Afternoon
at the Movies

Archer City, Texas. The Royal Theater was gutted by fire in 1965, shown in The Last Picture Show in 1971, and reopened in 2001.

In brief

Three short documentary films on fossil fuels, pollution, and the environment:

1. 300 Years of Fossil Fuels in 300 Seconds by the Post Carbon Institute

2. The Story of Cap & Trade by Annie Leonard

3. The Story of Electronics by Annie Leonard

Notes, credits, & links

All 3 videos are available on YouTube.

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "long-suffering sighs") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.

You can listen to any installment of New World Notes online or else download it (as an mp3 audio file) for later listening. The show is archived at both and (from #90 onwards) The Internet Archive. Either link should get you a reverse-chrono listing of available installments. Or browse the show's Web site: Each installment has a page, and each page has links to the recorded audio. See the gray sidebar on the right ("CONTENTS [Links]") for a table of contents.
