Moyers & Company Climate Change: Faith and Fact Katharine Hayhoe is an atmospheric scientist who's also an evangelical Christian, but in the face of those who use religion to deny the worldwide crisis of climate change, she believes that her faith is compatible with science."...The New Testament talks about how faith is the evidence of things not seen," she tells Bill Moyers. "By definition, science is the evidence of things that are seen, that can be observed, that are quantifiable. And so that's why I see faith and science as two sides of the same coin."The daughter of missionaries, Hayhoe believes she, too, has a mission: "Caring about climate is entirely consistent with who we are as Christians. But over the last several decades...we have increasingly begun to confound our politics with our faith. To the point where instead of our faith dictating our attitudes on political and social issues, we are instead allowing our political party to dictate our attitude on issues that are clearly consistent with who we are... Climate change is a casualty of much larger societal issues. If we can get past the issue of rhetoric and politics, and actually start talking about what's in our hearts, I have seen amazing things happen in terms of moving forward to look at solutions that are consistent with the values that we have."Katharine Hayhoe teaches at Texas Tech University and is director of its Climate Science Center. She is the founder and CEO of ATMOS Research, a scientific research and consulting firm and co-author of A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions. A rising star of climate science, Hayhoe was named one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in 2014 and featured in the Emmy Award-winning Showtime documentary series Years of Living Dangerously.

Real McCoy, The The Prohibition era (1920-1933) gave rise to a new generation of romantic "characters" — the flapper, the private eye, the organized crime boss and the bootlegger. One such bootlegger, pioneering rum runner Bill McCoy, earned the name "The Real McCoy" because he always delivered uncut, undiluted gin, rum and whiskey to his happy patrons. A teetotaler himself, this "gentleman crook" nevertheless fuelled the Roaring Twenties by smuggling more than one million bottles of illegal alcohol from the Caribbean to New York. McCoy's maritime daring and willful defiance of the unpopular 18th Amendment and government authority made him a household name during the era and earned him a Robin Hood-like mystique with the American public. Based on the book by Frederick Van de Water, THE REAL MCCOY recounts the extraordinary life and legendary exploits of this man who personified the tumultuous times in which he lived. The film charts McCoy's transformation from modest boat builder to public enemy number one through archival materials, historic re-enactments and interviews with noted scholars.

FIRE IN THE FOREST: THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF THE BA'AL SHEM TOV Rabbi Israel ben Eliezer (1698-1760), known as the Ba'al Shem Tov ("Master of the Good Name"), is one of the most beloved and celebrated, yet elusive, figures in Jewish history. Today, Jews worldwide — and even non-Jews — revere him as the founder of the Hasidic movement, a 18th-century offshoot of Judaism that promotes a mystical interpretation of the Bible, and as a model of piety and spirituality. The documentary A FIRE IN THE FOREST explores the life and legacy of the Ba'al Shem Tov through interviews with religious leaders and scholars, and on-location footage. The title derives from a tale about rabbis finding a hidden fire in the forest where they could appeal to God for help and have their prayers answered.

Here at the ceremony, Tarthang Tulku has led one of the world's largest efforts to preserve the Tibetan culture through his monumental offerings of Tibetan sacred texts and art. And through their unceasing prayers for peace at the very source of their spiritual tradition, the Tibetans have helped revitalize a long dormant place of worship and reinvigorated their culture in the most critical time of their history.This is the story of a sacred place, an exiled people and a Tibetan lama's immense efforts to restore Tibetan culture.
