The Children's Climate Crusade
Static Preview

The very agencies created to protect our environment have been hijacked by the polluting industries they were meant to regulate. It may just turn out that the judicial system, our children and their children will save us from ourselves, Mary Christina Wood, a legal scholar, tells Bill Moyers this week.

Bill Moyers on the McCutcheon Decision
Static Preview

After Bill's interview with Saru Jayaraman on food workers fight for a living wage, he spoke about the two events this week -- one in Albany, NY and the other in Washington, DC -- that have made the fight to save democracy from big money, already an uphill battle, even harder.

In Albany, Governor Cuomo and legislators killed a commission investigating political corruption, failed to pass campaign finance reform and gave tax breaks to the rich in their annual budget. In Washington, the Supreme Court struck down overall contribution limits on how much individual donors can give to candidates, parties and PACs.

In this clip, Bill offers his reactions to this week's events: "The prevailing myth in America has been that the rich have a right to buy more homes, more cars, more gizmos, vacations and leisure. But they don't have the right to buy more democracy. The Supreme Court has just laid that myth to rest, and the new gilded age roars in triumph."

Why Single-Degree Climate Changes Matter by Anthony Leiserowitz
Static Preview

In a preview of this week's Moyers & Company, climate communication expert Anthony Leiserowitz explains that single-digit degree changes in our climate are comparable to single-digit degree changes in our body temperature when we get sick. "I think there's an analogy here — that little difference in global average temperature, just like that little difference in body temperature, can have huge implications as you keep going," Leiserowitz tells Bill.

What's The Right Thing to Do? Wendell Berry
Static Preview

Snippet from longer October 2013 interview of author Wendell Berry by Bill Moyers. Poet and writer Wendell Barry, called the "prophet of responsibility by Bill McKibben," and a "passionate advocate for the Earth by Bill Moyers, addresses leadership this way:

"Leadership from the bottom, and I 'm convinced perfectly that it's  happening and that leadership consists of people who simply see something that needs to be done and they start doing it. We don't have the right to ask whether we are going to succeed or not, the only question we have a right to ask is, "What's the Right Thing to do?"

The Hypocrisy of 'Justice for All' by Bill Moyers
Static Preview

Bill reports on the hypocrisy of "justice for all" in a society where billions are squandered for a war born in fraud while the poor are pushed aside. He draws particular attention to the failing legacy of Gideon vs. Wainwright, the landmark Supreme ruling that established the constitutional right of criminal defendants to legal representation, even if they can't afford it. Turns out true justice -- not just the word that comes from our lips when we recite the Pledge of Allegiance -- is still unaffordable for those who need it most. Published on Mar 29, 2013
