    Global 3000 [#439] American Drought Rings Famine Alarms Overseas The Global Food Crisis - What's behind it? To feed the world the food industry is still dependent on good weather. Poor harvests caused by droughts have sent prices for wheat and corn rocketing. As a result, many people can no longer afford to buy even basic foodstuffs. Staple foods are becoming increasingly expensive. Wealthy western countries are largely unaffected by the problem but the developing world is badly hit. People there are having to spend most of their income on food, and many can no longer afford even the basics. Meager harvests are not the only factors driving up food prices. We look at the roots of the problem. duration 26:10   STEREO

    European Journal [#3039] Dreams of a Spanish Gold Rush Decentralization was supposed to secure Spain's future, but that was before the economic crisis hit. Many of the country's regions are deeply in debt or even teetering on bankruptcy. Now the principality of Asturias wants to help itself by mining for gold. Asturias sits on one of the biggest untapped gold deposits in western Europe. Officials hope opening up new gold mines will create thousands of new jobs. But the plans have sparked protests. Many farmers fear that mining for gold could trigger the release of dangerous chemicals and endanger their crops. duration 26:10   STEREO TVRE

    Moyers & Company [#139H] Hispanic America's Turn According to the 2010 census, the number of American Hispanics grew 43% in the last decade to over 50 million. By 2050, Hispanics are projected to number 132 million and represent 30% of the population. As that population evolves, so does their political power. A new report by the Pew Hispanic Center shows that since 2008, America's Latino voting population has grown 22% since 2008. But what are the cultural and political implications of these now well-understood statistics?
    This week, Bill goes beyond the numbers with two of our nation's most popular and influential journalists: Univision's Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas. Univision, a Spanish-language US television network, has the largest audience of Spanish-language television viewers, according to Nielsen ratings.
    Ramos, says The Washington Monthly, is "the broadcaster who will most determine the 2012 elections," while The New York Times calls Salinas "the voice of Hispanic America." In a candid and comprehensive discussion, Ramos and Salinas discuss their responsibilities both as reporters and representatives of their culture, their aggressive journalistic approaches to both President Obama and Governor Romney, and their strong takes on immigration issues that mean so much to a potentially decisive voting bloc in 2012.
    "We are changing the face of America. It's not black and white anymore. We're changing the way we eat. We're changing the way people dance, the way people speak. And we're changing the way people vote." Ramos tells Bill. "No one can make it the White House now without the Hispanic vote - that's completely new."
    This year, Ramos and Salinas received the Lifetime Achievement Emmy Award - the first Hispanics ever to earn the honor.

    Washington Week [#5214H] The consensus among most political observers is that Mitt Romney outperformed President Barack Obama in their first presidential debate at the University of Denver on Wednesday.
    Romney, who participated in 19 Republican primary debates since the start of 2011, seemed more comfortable and well-practiced. He didn't hesitate to attack the president on a myriad of issues including the deficit, jobs, healthcare and the economic recovery.
    President Obama, well-known for his communication skills, had his moments but seemed less aggressive and more reluctant to fire back at Mr. Romney during the 90-minute face-off.
    Throughout the debate both candidates relied on numbers to highlight their different approaches to Medicare reform, tax policy and financial regulations. But did the wonkier and more granular duel of ideas help either candidate or just leave voters confused?
    Gwen Ifill will examine the issues that were debated, the ones that weren't and what it tells us about the state of the race for the White House with: Peter Baker of The New York Times, Dan Balz of The Washington Post, Jeanne Cummings of Bloomberg News, and John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News.

    This American Land [#210] Montana Wilderness, Bald Eagle Recovery, Lionfish Derby, Crocodile Man Montana Wilderness: There's an ambitious plan to protect 700,000 acres of new wilderness in Montana. And after many years of argument, it looks like local residents, loggers, hikers, and conservation groups have put aside their differences so nature is the big winner. You'll meet one veteran outdoorsman, Smoke Elser, who's almost as comfortable in this back woods as the elk and the bears are!
    Bald Eagle Recovery: It was almost a national tragedy. The bold symbol the United States, the bald eagle, was nearly wiped out when pesticides interfered with their breeding. Our national bird has made quite a comeback, but there are still mysteries to solve in keeping the population healthy. Oregon Field Guide takes us to a "convocation, " a gathering of these regal birds, and introduces us to some of the heroes who saved them from extinction.
    Lionfish Derby: It's one of the most dramatic displays of how an invasive species can upset an ecosystem. Lionfish, originally from Asia, have found a comfortable home in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. Government and conservation organizations have come up with some sporty ways to control these aggressive fish, because they are competing with commercially important species like snapper and grouper. We'll take you to one "Lionfish Derby."
    Crocodile Man: "If it can't bite you, it's not interesting," laughs Mississippi State University biologist David Ray. Ray does very interesting work, studying alligators, crocodiles, bats, and flies, among other creatures. Mapping alligator and crocodile genomes is helping scientists with everything from trying to save the odd looking Indian gharial, to tracing the links between modern reptiles, dinosaurs, and birds.

    Decoding Autism Twenty years ago, few people knew about autism. Today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considers it a major public health crisis. The devastating neurodevelopmental disorder affects a child's communication and social skills, ability to empathize and often, his or her IQ. There is no clear cause and no known cure. In 2010, doctors will diagnose more children with an autism spectrum disorder than with childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined. In New Jersey, the prevalence rate rose to 1 in 94, higher than the national average of 1 in 110. These alarming statistics led to an enormous amount of scientific research in an effort to decode the mystery of autism. Scientists are studying the brains, blood and genes of children with autism and looking at the environment to find answers about its possible causes. DECODING AUTISM looks at the health issue that leaves families heartbroken, vulnerable and desperate for answers. Emmy Award-winning journalist Sara Lee Kessler highlights the efforts underway in New Jersey and New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Louisville and Sacramento, where researchers hope to gain insights that may lead to prevention, new treatments and even a cure. DECODING AUTISM includes interviews with a number of families dealing with the challenges of raising children on the autism spectrum. DECODING AUTISM visits schools specializing in educating children with autism, including the internationally recognized Princeton Child Development Institute in New Jersey and Thursday's Child in New York. There, early intervention using Applied Behavior Analysis, both in the classroom and at home, has the potential to lessen the severity of symptoms and maximize the potential of children with autism spectrum disorders. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

Since that time it has created 544 acres of new land and has consumed 200 homes. But as we watch nature's own fireworks display and witness the devastation wrought by flowing lava, we've also been able to observe a process that's central to life on these islands. The most spectacular moment of creation is when lava pours into the ocean creating new land and it is here that filmmaker Paul Atkins finds himself getting a shot few have ever filmed - the cataclysmic meeting of 2000 degree lava and 75 degree ocean water - a sight to behold. duration 56:39   STEREO (Secondary audio: DVI)

It seemed as though Mount St. Helens might remain a wasteland forever. When biologist Charlie Crisafulli first flew over the disaster zone, finding no sign of life, little did he realize that his own life would be forever changed. Crisafulli has remained at the site for 27 years, documenting the dramatic return of plant and animal life to the barren landscape and pioneering a new understanding of the interaction between geologic forces and the life surrounding the mountain. Nova brings viewers on a journey of a landscape brought back from the dead. duration 55:01   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
