Inventor tackles illegal gold mining boom that's destroying the rainforest

There is a heated fight against global warming in the Amazon rainforest, where illegal gold mining and logging is causing massive deforestation. An unassuming inventor from North Carolina has teamed up with local conservationists in Peru to deploy a brand new weapon in the fight to save precious land. 'Now What,'a new docu-series hosted by Ryan Duffy, searches out the innovation, creativity, and ingenuity springing up in response to the world’s biggest problems. The 10 episode series documents not just today's most pressing challenges, but the people behind the most creative potential solutions.

About this Show

NOW WHAT, the new docu-series hosted by Ryan Duffy, explores our most pressing problems and spotlights the people behind the most creative potential solutions. It poses its titular question sincerely: what do the possible remedies look like, how far away are they, and what obstacles are they facing? NOW WHAT is less about solutions themselves; it's about the hard work and big brains that might just get us there.
