For 20 years the Video Project has been a leading distributor of environmental videos about the fate of our planet.Adam Werbach is now part of their team.

Bios still mention his hosting an environmental tv show, the green thin line but I was unable to find any info, site or blog.

Abstacted from a speech by Van Jones on November 5, 2004.
Communications technology has become reliable, ubiquitous and cheap. We can network tens of thousands of people; record and share high-quality independent music; and create professional quality DVD's - all on a few desktop computers. Moveon.org, Howard Dean and Indyvoter.org are just the tip of the iceberg. Film-maker Robert Greenwald combined new technologies by partnering with Moveon.org to promote his Bush-slamming, documentary DVD's online. We are really just starting to leverage online communities and digital technologies. (Luckily, the Right is too top-down to use these liberating tools appropriately. So we have an advantage in this domain, for now.)

Green planet films library looks like an interesting project, sort of a blockbusters service for environmental films. It is an online dvd rental library.
Is it economically viable? Can producers be convinced to offer their documentaries that way? Are there enough people willing to use such a service?
At this point the catalog still looks small.
Read how Suzanne Harle got the idea of founding this dvd library by attending a film festival.
My guess is it would take the involvement of several big and many small organizations to build a significant enough network and clientele basis.
The service could also provide additional info about new films.
Via a blog?
All our best wishes for a happy new year!
