Once upon a time there was a tiny sugar-producing township called Tully in Far North Queensland, Australia. Tully is renowned for its endless sugar fields and...rain. One day the townsfolk were shocked by the devastating news that Brazil had dumped its sugar on the world market. "What will we do?" they cried, "We will all be ruined." Not being one to knock back a challenge, life-time resident and Rotary Club member Ron Hunt calls a meeting with the town leaders to see what can be done to save Tully from financial rack and ruin. Ron proposes to build The World's Biggest Gumboot in honour of Tully's record rainfall of 7.98 metres in 1950.

The Aral Sea lies between Kazakhstan in the north and Uzbekistan in the south. Once the world's fourth-largest inland saline body of water the Aral Sea has been steadily shrinking since the 1960s after the rivers that fed it were diverted by Soviet Union irrigation projects. There is now an ongoing effort in Kazakhstan supported by a Danish humanitarian group, Aral Tenizi, to save and replenish the North Aral Sea.

Radioactive material from the Sellafield nuclear plant in the UK has been detected in Norwegian waters. The Sellafield plant was built over fifty years ago by the British government to produce electricity and plutonium for the making of atomic bombs. Now it has reconverted into a nuclear waste processing plant, but security is still not guaranteed and fires, leakage and accidental toxic discharge have occurred over the years.

With its complex maze of fjords, islands and channels, Aisen, in Patagonia is a beautiful but inhospitable area. It was opened up to settlement in the 1980s with the construction of the Southern Highway. Together with plots of land allocated to would-be settlers from all over Chile, the highway was part of a colonisation policy aimed at improving the country's access to the sea and its resources, as well as asserting its sovereignty in border disputes with neighbouring Argentina.
