short-lived series, the first casualty of the 1990-1991 season, was sort of an
environmental Mission Impossible. The
team, organized by a dying billionaire concerned with the ecological balance
of the environment, traveled all over the world using guerilla tactics
to prevent ecological catastrophes. In the three episodes that aired they
recovered stolen plutonium that was earmarked for nuclear weapons, stopped
animal poachers from selling endangered species on the black market, and
prevented unscrupulous developers from building housing on a toxic waste site. Their
organization - Earth Alert Research Tactical Headquarters (E.A.R.T.H. for short) - was staffed
by John, a trauma care expert; Carl, a maverick nuclear physicist who had
become an environmental activist; Catherine, a marine biologist and expert
on oil spills; Charles, a mercenary who was in it only for the money; and
Diana, director of the Earth Alert Foundation that provided their funding.
