    Global 3000 [#449] The Realities of Climate Change Hid Hard In Mexico Climate: Mexico - Reforestation and Water Protection - In the province of Chiapas in Mexico, climate change is bitter reality. Droughts are lasting longer, and rainy seasons getting shorter. But when the rains do come, they can be so heavy that they cause flooding or mudslides that bury entire villages. People on site have to protect themselves. And as farmers, they also have to adapt to climate change. The Nature Conservancy organization is active in the area, promoting long-term measures. duration 26:10   STEREO

    Focus On Europe [#3049] Britain's Sex Abuse Scandal Widens Britain has been rocked in recent months by revelations that a late TV presenter is believed to have been sexually abusing children for decades. More and more people are stepping forward with claims that they too were among his victims. The British public is shocked that the abuse went on as long as it did. The case has also highlighted the issue of unchecked sexual abuse in institutions such as care homes, schools and hospitals across Britain. An inquiry into allegations of abuse at children's home in Wales conducted in the 1990s identified 28 alleged perpetrators, but many names were then redacted due to either pending prosecutions or lack of evidence. duration 26:10   STEREO TVRE

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1615H] Same-Sex Marriage - In March the Supreme Court will hear arguments on an amendment that bans same-sex marriage In California, and on the Defense of Marriage Act, which denies same-sex couples who marry the same federal benefits accorded to heterosexual marriages. The Supreme Court decision will have broad implications and, as Tim O'Brien reports, one possible outcome of these cases could be the requirement that all states recognize gay marriage. Christmas Gift Giving - The tradition of giving Christmas presents is often tied to the magi, or wise men, who according to the Bible story, brought precious gifts to the baby Jesus. But many Christians say things have gotten out of hand. The average American family is projected to spend about $750 on Christmas this year. Kim Lawton looks at the ways some churches are urging their members to avoid consumerism and practice more meaningful Christmas gift giving. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE

    Moyers & Company [#149H] Fiscal Cliffs and Fiscal Realities * When it comes to America's economic health, all anyone seems to talk about is the "fiscal cliff," and the perils of our inevitable plunge. But media's favorite metaphor is distracting us from actual and crucial fiscal realities. This week, independent political and economic analysts Bruce Bartlett and Yves Smith join Bill in a discussion that's become as rare as it is necessary - why are Washington insiders talking about the deficit crisis and not the jobs crisis?
    Bartlett, former advisor to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush, got into hot water with fellow conservatives when he aired concerns about the direction of their ideology and wrote critically of the second George Bush. His most recent book is The Benefit and The Burden: Tax Reform - Why We Need It, and What It Will Take. Yves Smith, who spent more than 25 years in the financial services industry, is the founder and editor of the popular blog Naked Capitalism, and runs a successful management consulting firm.< br />* Following the conversation, Bill shares his perspective on one of the most corrupt D.C. fixtures - the revolving door between Washington leadership and lobbying. That lucrative pathway ensures that "when push comes to shove, corporate interests will have the upper hand in the close calls that determine public policy... no matter which party is in power."
    * Finally on the broadcast, poet and former publishing executive James Autry joins Bill to talk about issues of art and of heart. He shares his poems with Bill and discusses his and his wife Sally's challenging but inspiring experience raising their autistic child.

    Washington Week [#5224H] * After a turbulent couple of weeks amid speculation that she was the leading candidate to succeed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, UN Ambassador Susan Rice withdrew from consideration as America's top diplomat. In a letter to President Obama she said she didn't want to be a political distraction. There were increasing signals that her potential nomination could run into significant opposition from Republicans in the Senate led by John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte because of her statements regarding the September attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Martha Raddatz of ABC News will have background and the latest on how President Obama is looking to reshape his national security team.
    * Meanwhile, the deliberations between the President and House Speaker John Boehner to avert the looming economic fiscal cliff continue. There have been phone calls and at least two face-to-face meetings between the leaders but little public progress to report. John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News joins us to discuss why what sounds like a stalemate may actually be a sign of progress.
    * In a surprise announcement this week, Russian officials conceded that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad may be losing control of his country. Until now Russia has been Syria's most powerful ally. The United States has joined more than 100 nations to recognize the opposition coalition as the "legitimate representative" of the Syrian people. We will get context and analysis on the nearly two-year old revolt and chances for a peaceful resolution from David Sanger of The New York Times. < br />* This week Michigan, birthplace of the American auto industry, became the 24th state to enact right-to-work legislation which effectively bars workers from being forced to join a union. David Shepardson of The Detroit News will explain the impact of the politically-charged issue and whether the argument that it helps to create jobs might sound enticing to other states around the country.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2410H] December 14, 2012 Guest Host: Yul Kwon.
    NEWS PANEL:
    IMMIGRATION POLICY - As Congress and the White House prepare to tackle comprehensive immigration reform next year, there is much at stake for California, the state with the largest population of undocumented immigrants.
    FRACKING - After decades of minimal oversight, the controversial hydraulic fracturing industry will finally be regulated in California. "Fracking," the high-pressure injection of chemicals and water to split rocks and extract natural gas and oil, is in use by companies at more than 600 wells throughout the state.
    AIR TRAVEL - The skies are less friendly than they used to be. Air travel has become increasingly frustrating with penalties and fees going up for everything from checking baggage to preferred seat selection. The struggling airline industry expects to pocket $36 billion in revenue from fees alone this year.
    KING TIDES - As the sun and moon align this week, their combined gravitational pull on the ocean is producing the highest tides of 2012. Though "king tides" aren't caused by climate change, organizers of the King Tides Initiative say the phenomenon is a vivid demonstration of the future impact of rising sea levels on the Bay Area landscape.
    Guests: Aarti Kohli, University of California, Berkeley; Stephen Stock, NBC Bay Area; Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News; and David Lazarus, LA Times.

    POV [#2301H] Food, Inc. Filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment.
    We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli - the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.
    Featuring interviews with such experts as Eric Schlosser ("Fast Food Nation"), Michael Pollan ("The Omnivore's Dilemma") along with forward thinking social entrepreneurs, this film reveals surprising - and often shocking truths - about what we eat, how it's produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.
