In this episode, citizens and scientists partner to gather data on many environmental concerns around the world. A group of citizen scientists track air and water pollution at fracking sites in Wyoming and 5 other states. They use simple but science-based techniques developed by the “Bucket Brigade.” Volunteers from Trout Unlimited monitor water quality regularly, generating baseline data that will prove invaluable in the event of future pollution events. Community members connected with professional researchers explore Flint’s drinking water crisis and help other cities test their water quality. In China, citizens use government data and a unique mobile app to report environmental crimes. Part of "The Crowd and the Cloud" series.
