        NOVA Online | Judo with Nature

        Find out how eco-engineers in the Netherlands are taking hints from nature to rein in flooding, in this video from NOVA Online. One idea is to plant trees in front of dikes to lower the height of approaching waves. They compare this type of approach to judo. They are using the forces of nature, rather than fighting against them, to produce powerful results.
