    Global 3000 [#433] Facing An Environmental Dilemma In Argentina PATAGONIA: ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION VERSUS CLEAN ENERGY - American conservationist Kristine Tompkins and her husband Douglas have bought 263,000 hectares of land from Argentinian farmers in order to create a national park. But Chile's energy sector wants to produce hydroelectricity on the same land. A consortium plans to build five dams and flood large areas of land to produce hydroelectric power. Kris and Doug Tompkins are battling against Chilean politicians and ranchers. In the past 20 years, the couple has created a total of 11 nature preserves in South America for about 250 million dollars. Selfless commitment or checkbook tourism?
    IN THE NETS OF THE BUCCANEERS: TRAWLERS OFF AFRICA'S COASTS - For centuries, fishermen on the coasts of west Africa have been putting out to sea in their small boats. But now the ocean doesn't provide enough for them to feed their families, because it's being overfished by high-tech European fishing fleets. For the million and a half small-scale fishermen living on the coast of west Africa there is precious little left. The European Union has bought up the Mauritanian government's fishing rights for just under 140 million euros a year. Vessels from Europe - subsidized by the EU - are seriously depleting fish stocks in the waters off Africa.
    CLIMATE: GREYWATER RECYCLING IN JORDAN - High water consumption where water is extremely scarce - Jordan's tourism industry is in a quandary. It's hoped a new facility for recycling greywater will help. In the Dead Sea Spa Hotel, water filters were recently installed, and since then a third of the valuable drinking water can be recycled as water for washing and flushing toilets. Projects like this are extremely important, because tourism is growing and water shortages loom. According to predictions, Jordanians themselves and tourists visiting the country will use about 513 million cubic meters of water in the year 2020. Added to that are the needs of the refugees flooding in from neighboring Syria.
    THE GLOBAL 3000 QUESTIONNAIRE: TONG MUSHENG, FARMER FROM CHINA - 62-year-old Tong Musheng comes from Hebei Province in northern China. She's a farmer and a representative in the National People's Congress. The most important things to her are her grandchildren's education and her plot of land. Her greatest dream is to see the ocean someday She says she still doesn't know what globalization means to her.

    European Journal [#3033] A Mining Frenzy Hits The Arctic SPAIN: HEADING SOUTH - Part 2 of our series "Journeys in Europe": In the summer, Europeans go on vacation. Schools are closed and many companies make do with a skeleton work force. The motorways, in contrast, are busier than ever, with people trying to get to the seashore as fast as possible. Nothing stops European drivers - neither overfilled service areas, nor high gasoline prices and tolls. That's certainly true on the E15, the European route that runs more than 3600 kilometers from Scotland through England and France, directly to Spain. Traffic on the last segment of the route, from Valencia to Gibraltar, is especially heavy. Millions of Moroccans are on their way to visit their families in northern Africa.
    SERBIA/MACEDONIA: PENALIZING ASYLUM SEEKERS - The European Union has long been pressuring Balkan countries to do something to stem the influx of immigrants from the region. Now Serbia and Macedonia are planning drastic measures. They want to penalize illegal immigration and abuse of asylum by their citizens. Their border police are to be allowed to confiscate passports and vehicles and impose a ban on entering the EU.
    SWEDEN: MINING BOOM IN THE ARCTIC - Since worldwide prices for natural resources have shot up, copper and iron ore for industrial use have become real money-makers. In northern Sweden, open cast mining is booming. There's an absolute mining frenzy going on in the Arctic. This is where Europe's biggest deposits are. Because of demand from China prices are soaring. The region's villages are turning into towns. Thousands are rushing to the north to get a slice of the cake.
    RUSSIA: THE OLD BELIEVERS OF TUVA - Up to 15,000 Old Believers live a nomadic life on the banks of the Yenisei River in Siberia. They are hunters on the river rapids. To live in tune with nature is more important to them than civilization. Southeastern Siberia is one of the poorest and least accessible parts of Russia. The Old Believers originally belonged to the Russian Orthodox Church, but reforms led to a schism among the faithful. The forest nomads consider themselves to be the true Christians.

    TONY BLAIR FAITH FOUNDATION - The former British prime minister converted to Catholicism and established a foundation to address issues of faith and globalization. "The big issue of our time," according to Blair, "is trying to deal with extremism based on a perversion of religion, and how you get peaceful coexistence between people of different faiths and cultures."
    LDS PAGEANT - It's the 75th anniversary of the annual Hill Cumorah Pageant near Palmyra, New York, a lavish outdoor theatrical production of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, based on the Book of Mormon.

    Moyers & Company [#133H] Nuns, Faith, and Politics Weeks before Republican Paul Ryan was selected to run for vice president, Sister Simone Campbell - who heads Network, a Catholic policy and lobbying group - hit the road to protest the so-called "Ryan budget" recently passed by the House of Representatives. She and some of her sister nuns rolled across the heartland on a bus trip designed to arouse public concern over what the Ryan plan would mean for social services in America, especially its slashing of programs for the poor. Sister Simone says his budget is inconsistent with Catholic social teaching. The US Conference of Catholic Bishops agrees.
    But other Catholics say Sister Simone and the nuns have crossed the line, becoming too outspoken and political. Robert Royal, editor in chief of The Catholic Thing and founder of the Faith & Reason Institute, believes that issues of economic inequality are being oversimplified. Royal says the focus should be on creating a more dynamic economy for all.
    It's one of the hottest issues of this overheated summer. Watch our field report from producers who rode along on the "Nuns on the Bus" tour, then join a passionate, candid discussion with Sister Simone and Royal.

    Washington Week [#5208H] * Gwen Ifill and the Washington Week team are traveling to Florida this week to cover the Republican National Convention. Republicans will be gathering in Tampa to officially nominate Mitt Romney as the party's candidate for president and to kick-off the final push to defeat President Barack Obama in November.
    * The former Massachusetts governor had planned to spend this week campaigning on his vision for America and talking about how he would create jobs, bolster the economy and reduce the national debt. But Romney's message was drowned out by a fellow Republican running for the US Senate in Missouri. Rep. Todd Akin's controversial remarks about rape and abortion outraged liberals as well as many conservatives. Romney and members of the GOP leadership have called on Akin to step aside, but the 6-term House member remains defiant and has vowed to stay in the Senate race until the end. Will the issue of abortion be a factor in the fall and could it help or hurt the Romney-Ryan ticket?
    * The presidential race remains a virtual tie with President Obama gaining a slight lead since Romney tapped Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan to be his running mate. Ryan enjoys tremendous support among the party base, but can he rally reluctant Republicans who question Romney's conservative credentials?
    * Florida Senator Marco Rubio, a one-time vice presidential contender and a tea party favorite will introduce Mitt Romney before he accepts his nomination. Rubio is among a roster of the party's future stars scheduled to speak including New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
    Joining Gwen in Florida with analysis of the 2012 presidential race: Dan Balz of The Washington Post; John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News; Beth Reinhard of National Journal; and Amy Walter of ABC News.

    This American Land [#204] Fiddler Crabs, Disappearing Chincoteague, California Desert, Hurricane Sleuth Fiddler Crabs: Between their digging and mating rituals, fiddler crabs can amuse us endlessly! That big, odd claw on the male can be a weapon or an enticement to a female. But these little crustaceans also have a big impact on their environment. From watching them surround their burrows with mud balls, to viewing a parade of thousands of crabs scurrying across the wetlands, scientists are still trying to understand just where these animals fit into the coastal ecosystem.
    Disappearing Chincoteague: Virginia's Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge gets 1.4 million visits a year, making it one of the most popular in the country. The refuge is part of Assateague Island, home of the world famous Chincoteague ponies, and also 300 species of birds. But this tourist destination is changing rapidly. Rising sea levels will likely turn grasslands into marshes, drown the wetlands, and erase parts of the island completely. We'll show you how the island is preparing for this dramatic change in landscape.
    California Desert: The rugged desert around Death Valley, California is teeming with life. But you need the proper guide to make sure you see it all. 75 year-old Tom Budlong knows this wild place better than just about anyone. And he wants to protect the junipers, the Joshua trees, and the pinon trees from mining and other development. Nearby, date farmer Brian Brown helps eco-tourists learn more about the rich history of the land. They are working with many others to protect this stark but dynamic ecosystem.
    Hurricane Sleuth: Not all hurricane hunters need to stand out in a storm to understand these powerful weather events. Geologists are taking a look back, using core samples to study deposits that were washed in during hurricanes. These archives from Mother Nature can paint a picture of the drama that took place hundreds of years ago. Researchers are also exploring the link between climate change and hurricanes-to help determine whether warmer oceans will mean tropical storms will get more intense.

    Richard Bangs' Adventures with Purpose "Morocco: Quest for the Kasbah" For centuries, Kasbahs - the walled residential quarters around Moroccan cities - served as a refuge for African, Arab, Jewish and European traders, pirates and holy men traveling on ancient caravan routes. Today, these Kasbahs exemplify Morocco's determination to guard and preserve their rich multiculturalism. In his latest Adventures With Purpose special, adventurer Richard Bangs travels to Morocco on a quest for the modern-day equivalent of the Kasbah. Bangs begins his journey in Marrakesh, where he dips down to the seashore, travels over the mountains to Ouarzazate and treks to the desert on the country's far eastern border. Then, he works his way up to Fes, far north to Tangier, and back to Rabat, ending in the city of Casablanca. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
