    Moyers & Company [#238H] Saving The Earth from Ourselves Right now, the government of Russia is holding in custody the Arctic Sunrise, a ship crewed by 30 environmental activists from the organization Greenpeace International. They attempted to board a Russian offshore oil platform, demonstrating against drilling for fossil fuels in the fragile environment of the Arctic. Their protest, which may lead to charges of piracy, comes at the same time as news that not so long from now - by mid-century or even sooner - summer in the Arctic Ocean will be ice free. Since 1980, thanks to global warming, the Arctic already has lost around 40% of its sea ice cover, and that is having a huge effect on climate and the way the wheels and gears of the Earth are supposed to work.
    According to Greenpeace International Executive Director Kumi Naidoo, "Greenpeace activists and other environmental and social activists standing up for a more just, equitable and sustainable world are putting their lives on the line on a regular basis. What is at stake is humanity's ability to live in coexistence with nature for centuries to come." < br />Naidoo dared to scale an oil rig in the Artic only to be hammered with freezing water from a high-powered hose aimed right at him. The charismatic leader of Greenpeace International saved himself by thinking about his daughter, who inspired his activism in the first place. Naidoo was held for 4 days in a Greenland jail after one of these perilous climbs but it was not the first time he's seen the inside of a cell. From his teenage years in South Africa, he was a vocal and powerful opponent of apartheid, incarcerated and beaten so often he finally fled to Britain, where he was awarded a Rhodes scholarship to Oxford. When apartheid ended, Naidoo went back to South Africa and became a prominent human rights activist with a growing concern for the impact of climate change on impoverished people of color. In 2009, he brought his negotiating and advocacy skills to the leadership of Greenpeace International, now a worldwide organization of 3 million members. Naidoo joins Moyers & Company this week to discuss the politics of global warming and the urgency of environmental activism.

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5313H] * Ahead of the Affordable Care Act's latest provisions taking effect October 1, the White House has been focusing on educating the public about the health insurance exchanges. Simultaneously, Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz has continued his own campaign to defund the law, this week on the Senate floor. But President Obama is not backing down from Republican threats to tie funding for Obamacare to the budget and efforts to raise the nation's debt ceiling. He told a crowd at a community college in Maryland today that Republicans were becoming increasingly "irresponsible" in opposing the law that provides health care for millions of uninsured Americans. Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post will explain how the new health insurance exchanges will work and Gloria Borger of CNN will look at the ongoing budget battle, looming threat of a government shutdown next week, and the debt ceiling debate that will follow soon after. < br />* President Obama addressed the UN General Assembly on Tuesday focusing his remarks on securing Syria's chemical stockpiles and restoring relations between the US and Iran. The highly-anticipated meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani did not materialize, but the White House remains optimistic that the US and Iran can resolve differences over Tehran's nuclear program. Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times will have analysis of the status of relations between the US and Iran.
    * Plus, Kimberly Dozier of the Associated Press will report on the terrorist group behind this week's massacre at a Kenyan shopping mall. She'll explain why these Islamic extremists are heavily recruiting new members from the United States and what it means for America's homeland security.

    Who Cares About Kelsey? Kelsey Carroll has one goal - to graduate from high school - and plenty of reasons why she shouldn't. She attends a school with one of the highest dropout rates in New Hampshire and has dealt with homelessness, sexual abuse, and ADHD. As a freshman, she didn't earn a single academic credit, but she did get suspended for dealing drugs. 'Who Cares About Kelsey?' is the story of Kelsey's transformation from a defiant and disruptive "problem student" to a motivated and self-confident young woman. Along the way, critical figures in her personal and educational life shape her coming of age and play important roles in an education revolution that's about empowering - not overpowering - youth with emotional and behavioral challenges. duration 59:00   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Is School Enough? This program is a transmedia project that illuminates how young people are leveraging digital media to learn, explore interests, connect with others and change the world around them. Designed for parents and educators, the program and destination website acknowledge the persistent generation gap in how many adults view online participation, and demonstrates the full range of opportunities that digital practices can afford today's learners. Is School Enough? highlights stories of students employing cutting-edge technology to integrate into a new culture following emigration; tap into a Harry Potter-based social network to build public awareness about difficult social issues; reignite a love for reading and writing via an online Twilight fan fiction community, and more. Rather than focusing on the potential risks of kids' digital use, the program empowers parents and educators to seize the benefits that today's new media offer their children: self- realization based on interests, collective problem- solving through shared purpose, and greater civic and social engagement. Most importantly, it shows how caring adults can transform and energize schools, communities and homes by encouraging -- and enabling -- digital literacy. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Skeletons of the Sahara This film tells the story of scientist Paul Sereno's amazing discovery of a prehistoric human burial ground in the middle of one of the world's most forbidding desert. Like many great scientific discoveries, this one happens by accident. Sereno, one of the world's leading experts in finding fossils of dinosaurs and ancient crocodiles, is on an expedition to Niger, in Saharan Africa. Six weeks into a three-month journey, Sereno's team makes an unexpected discovery. They find bones all right, but these bones don't belong to prehistoric beasts -- they are human bones, the last remnants of a people who lived from 10,000 to 5,000 years ago when this now forbidding landscape was a thriving culture on the edge of a vast lake. Sereno's team counts the remains of dozens within a few minutes. "Skeletons of the Sahara" tells the story of this find and what it reveals to us about two civilizations that once thrived in what is now the world's largest desert. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVPG

    Life On Fire [#104] Phoenix Temple Around the Masaya Volcano in Nicaragua, life has struggled for thousands of years to re-emerge from the ashes. Underground, vampire and other bat species have colonized the miles of tunnels created by hot flowing magma. In the crater, parakeets and vultures have made nests on cliffs exposed to toxic gases. On the flanks of this still active mountain, the vegetation has been burnt away by lava flows leaving barren stretches that are recolonized over hundreds of years. At the foot of the volcano, fields, pastures and towns have grown over the oldest lava flows. In this harsh environment, nature struggles to conquer ash and lava before the next eruption erases its efforts ... and the phoenix must rise again. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

In their darkest hour, and with their dreams crumbling around them, the boys must look to their family and to their Native teachings for guidance and stability. It is their search for identity that transitions this film from a playful coming of age story, into an important study of modern Native American life. It follows their story over the next six years as they struggle to rebuild their friendship, rescue a fading childhood dream, and gain a more resolute understanding of their identity and culture, both as athletes and the next generation of the Onondaga people. duration 1:26:39   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
