Frontline ( visu )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 600 libraries worldwide
"All of the federal government's efforts to stem the tide in the financial meltdown that began with the subprime mortgage crisis have added hundreds of billions of dollars to the national debt. Frontline reports on how this debt will constrain and challenge the new Obama administration, and on the growing chorus on both sides of the aisle that without fiscal reform, the United States government may face a debt crisis of its own, which makes the current financial situation pale in comparison. Through interviews with leading experts and insiders in government finance, the film investigates the causes and potential outcomes of--and possible solutions to--America's 10 trillion dollar debt"--Original container
China inside out ( visu )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 437 libraries worldwide
In the past 30 years, more than 600 milion Chinese people have been lifted out of poverty, and the country now possesses massive new wealth. But with a population of more than 1.3 billion people, and not enough resources to sustain them, China's leaders realize that their survival depends on help in meeting the growing needs of its people. After 300 years of relative isolation, China is now reaching out to the rest of the world looking for resources, food, friends, and safe places to invest its new fortune. Reporter Bob Woodruff explores the global transformation taking place at the outset of what is already being called "The Chinese Century." While much of American foreign policy has been focused on the global war on terror, China has been forging relationships all around the world. This video looks at four of those relationships to discover the impact of China's new status

Ten trillion and counting ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 73 libraries worldwide
All of the measures by the feds to stem the tide in the financial meltdown have added hundreds of billions of dollars to the U.S. national debt. This episode of Frontline reports on how this debt constrains and challenges the Obama administration and on the growing chorus that, without fiscal reform, the U.S. government may face a debt crisis of its own in years to come that would make the current financial problems look almost painless by comparison
Hot politics ( visu )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
"'The way it happened was the equivalent to flipping the bird, frankly, to the rest of the world ... on an issue about which they felt so deeply.' That is how former New Jersey governor and the former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Christine Todd Whitman describes the Bush administration's decision to withdraw from the Kyoto Protocol on climate change in Hot Politics, a FRONTLINE report co-produced with the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR). As more and more Americans look for a response to the realities of climate change, FRONTLINE correspondent Deborah Amos investigates the political decisions that have prevented the United States government from confronting one of the most serious problems facing humanity today. In February 2007, the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded that the science on global warming is 'unequivocal' and asserted with 90 percent confidence that greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) from human activities, primarily from the burning of fossil fuels, have been the main cause. Yet, since 1992 -- from President George H.W. Bush's insistence that the first world climate change treaty make CO2 emission targets voluntary, through former President Bill Clinton's failure to pass a promised energy tax or to push for U.S. Senate ratification of the Kyoto treaty, through President George W. Bush's 2001 reversal of a campaign pledge to push for mandatory limits on CO2 emissions and his complete withdrawal from Kyoto -- the executive branch of the U.S. government has failed to join in climate change agreements adopted by much of the rest of the world. Hot Politics goes behind the scenes to examine the forces behind the inaction, including a well-financed energy industry campaign that challenged the broad scientific consensus on the human causes of climate change in an effort to stall federal regulation. Fossil fuel companies funneled millions of dollars to the institutes of global warming skeptics, including former President of the National Academy of Sciences Frederick Seitz, who cast doubt about the science in media reports on climate change. According to some whistleblowers, a parallel campaign has occurred within the Bush administration, which stifled the dissemination of key findings by government scientists about climate change. 'In my thirty-some years in the government, I've never seen constraints on the ability of scientists to communicate with the public as strong as they are now, ' says top NASA climate scientist James Hansen. In interviews with scientists like Hansen and Seitz and with political insiders including Whitman, Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.), former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) and former senator and Kyoto negotiatorTim Wirth, Hot Politics investigates why the U.S. federal government lags so far behind much of the world in responding to global climate change. And in special reports on FRONTLINE's Web site and elsewhere, CIR and FRONTLINE go further, with features including closer looks at the manipulation and suppression of science, a timeline of the politics and science of global warming, and a map tracking U.S. CO2 emissions and regulations state-by-state."--Credits
