Paris is one of the most visited cities by tourists in the world, but also suffers from some of the worst pollution in the European Union. Seven years ago Parisians turned their attention to the environment and their goal is to reduce car traffic in the city by 40% by 2020. Priority is given instead to public transport and other modes of environmentally friendly transport, such as bike riding.

In 2003, the city of Seoul took a rare step ‘back in time’, demolishing a major downtown freeway to uncover and restore the ancient Chonggyecheon stream that once flowed beneath it. An impressive feat of engineering, the project re-purposed nearly 75 percent of the dismantled highway material for reconstruction and rehabilitation of the stream’s banks and commercial corridor.

A machine or filtering system which extracts carbon dioxide from the air and stores it underground could be the holy grail of climate science. Although the idea was first proposed in 1999, scientists have so far failed to demonstrate a scrubber technology that's economic, energy-efficient and that won't cost the Earth. Until now.

It's impossible to ignore the fact that Australia is in the middle of a severe water crisis. So this week, The New Inventors will dive into the world of water-saving to look at how Australian inventors are taking action to conserve this precious resource. We also re-visit previous water-saving inventions to see where they have ended up. Plus, we'll expose "The Water Diaries" kept by host James O'Loghlin and the panel to find out who is the most conservative when it comes to water usage.
