Concept featured in clip: Invasive Species/Environmental Destruction
Location of clip: (DVD)

Connection of flickclip to the concept:
Suggestions to teachers:

Questions after viewing:
Do you believe this situation could've been handled more scientifically, even if the natives refused to help, could this have surely been solved by other means, but how so?
What events do you believe lead up to humanity needing to resort to such drastic measures?
Why was Earth so inhabitable? Is this a future we could be heading towards?
