Trailer: Dust Storm

Up to five billion tons of dust and sand blow around the earth each year: Dust Storm looks at the growing menace created by this increasingly common phenomenon, which threatens both the environment and human health. Governments are working feverishly on early warning systems and measures to protect their citizens.

The Middle East, with its vast deserts, is particularly prone to dust and sandstorms. But the phenomenon is also becoming increasingly common in North America, Europe and Asia. The documentary explores the causes of dust storms and shows why they are becoming stronger and more frequent. Climate change in particular plays a major role. Scientists and politicians have been working closely together for a long time to protect people and infrastructure. Dust storms pose an extreme health risk, and the only real protection is to seek cover. But early warning systems don’t always sound the alarm in time. This documentary shows what protective measures can already be taken today and which ones experts are now working on.
