Gaia in Greek means "Earth" and is synonymous with "Mother Earth". Over the years, the lack of respect for Gaia by humans, through the damage done to rainforests, pollution and the reduction in planetary biodiversity, is testing Gaia's capacity to minimise the effect of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Besides examining all these environmental issues in Asian countries like Vietnam, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, China and India, Saving Gaia also explores the world's search for alternative fuel and look at how Asia moves to turn its environmental problems around.
