The Arctic is warming faster than any other place on Earth. This affects weather and increases coastal erosion threatening many Alaskan communities. But with melting sea ice come new opportunities for shipping and development. Will the oil, gas and mineral rich Arctic lead to a rush for development? Might this lead to conflict and to serious consequences for the environment? Earth Focus looks at the changing face of the Arctic today.

Mosaic: The China Dream


Link TV

In 2012 General Secretary of China Xi Jinping announced what would become the hallmark of his administration: The China Dream.

This episode of “Mosaic” begins with a TV news clips of Xi, describing the dream as the “national rejuvenation,” improvement of people’s livelihoods, prosperity, construction of a better society, and a strengthened military. He specifically addresses the young people, “dare to dream, work assiduously to fulfill the dreams and contribute to the revitalization of the nation.”

Further, he calls upon all levels of the Party and the government to facilitate favorable conditions for their career development. Xi told young people to “cherish the glorious youth, strive with pioneer spirit and contribute their wisdom and energy to the realization of the Chinese dream.” Our host shares with what the China Dream is in political terms, providing data and stats as to the economic and political goals of the China Dream plan.

But what does it mean, how does this dream play out in real life, at all levels of society, and particularly to China’s youth? And, why now? How is this dream connected to economic achievement in the country?

Through the selected collection of stories, we attempt to address these questions and ideas and provide a glimpse into a wide swathe of social strata, from the bottom of society to the very top.

China: Religion and Environment


Link TV

Published on Jun 2, 2015

Can religion save China’s environment? Filmmakers Gary Marcuse and Shi Lihong capture a surprising trend in China in their new film Searching for Sacred Mountain. China is beginning to draw on its religious heritage — including Buddhism, Daoism, Confucianism and other traditions to address the country’s growing environmental challenges. The film profiles the Tibetan monastery at Baiyu in the Nianbaoyuze mountain range, a sacred and nationally protected park – which epitomizes the intersections between religion and environment and China. An abridged version of the film with commentary by filmmaker Gary Marcuse. Produced in collaboration with the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting, Face to Face Media and Wild China Film.
