The two faces of nitrogen

Nitrogen is an element essential to life. Since the discovery of nitrogen fixation to produce fertilizers, we were able to greatly increase  agriculture yields. But we use to much fertilizers in agriculture, and add extra nitrogen by burning fossil fuels. All this extra nitrogen leaks to the environment, causing problems in Water, Air, Green-house gases, Ecosystems and Soil. 

Produced within NitroPortugal, this video summarizes the modern-world issues with nitrogen, and proposes solutions to deal with it.
