CCTV America, the Chinese international news service, has some rather interesting programs. I like to watch Americas Now for stories that don’t get told in the U.S. (Cable subscribers probably get CCTV so check your guide.)
On Monday I saw two fascinating segments. One was on villages in Mexico where a man is teaching people permaculture and trades so that they can better their homes and villages using recycled items and their own craftsmanship.
The other was on Argentinian solar villages, desert villages which use solar power in innovative, inexpensive ways.
I input the link associated with the Mexican villages story, but it seems to go to a story on illegal mining. If you go to YouTube, search “Americas Now Earth Day 2016.” Subscribe to their channel as it’s got some interesting stories.
