I  really worry about this lonely planet in terms of environmental issues. People use lots of fossil energy resources and this emit huge amount of carbon. The carbon  generates climate change and the climate change will have high possibility to get all kinds of creature including human being in danger.  
I think all countries and all NGOs and all people must participate  in an effort to reduce consuming limit resources.

The end of this planet would be due to human factor. It's nothing else. Human is the only one who can make huge destructive. In recent years the planet has suffered a lots. The main reason is human ego which believes guiding the society to move up the development level, but in other hand to destroy the planet directly or indirectly.  Nothing we can do about it, but we can control it.
The root cause of Global warming is un-control population. No matter how many reasons we are talking about the root cause is only one. If the entire society does not control the population the final day of our lovely planet won't be long.

I never thought that Britain would be green, but still my country is also full of nature and greenery. I would suggest travelers who love nature to visit Thailand. It is also full of beaches, waterfalls, and mountains.
Thanks for the video//>><<>

I would like to visit the Eden centre and try to pollinate the jade vine.

You can visit here in the Philippines to pollinate some of the most rare plants in the world! :) Aside from that, we have lots of scenic views in the country :)

It is good to have a place like the Eden Center, but I didn't know that. I think it would be better to diffuse its existence and meaning in order to save our planet. People are well aware of that we must do something to be sustainable. However, many of us cannot compromise our current life style. If we know the Eden Project, it might be able to change our way of life.

why I can't find where is the video or audie

Hello wanjia!
 
As I explain to Kaofeng above, users in some countries, including China, have problems seeing all our videos. We are working on a solution, though. If you look at the Word on the Street videos, like Flathunting Scene 1, you'll see that there is a "Can't see video? Click here!" link. Try that, and let us know how the video works out for you.
 
At the moment, we don't have these Britain is Great videos available, I'm afraid, but you will have no problem listening to our mp3 radio shows - try Elementary Podcasts, for example. Have fun, and enjoy the rest of the site!

Wow! I feel so honoured that a vine from my country is being studied, preserved, and grown in other country like Britain. How I wish my fellow Filipinos have the same level of interest and effort in  valuing the treasures we have in our land.
