Summary: Earth Science needs to become mainstream. Create a TV series equivalent of “Time Team”. Except the Earth Team are tasked with solving an Earth Science problem in each episode using the knowledge, professional skills and tools of the Earth Science professionals. There would be a core team of professionals, who appear each week, and become role models for professional Earth Scientists. They would review the problem each week, then decide what expertise and data they need to bring in to solve the problem.
Funding and Production: A pilot series could be crowd-funded. Otherwise the stakeholders must fund it (industry, higher education, professional associations).
