Segment 1: "Al Gore -- The Problems of Climate Denial"
(4 minutes)

Former Vice President Al Gore, Co-Founder of the Climate Reality Project, talks about the reasons for the unusually high denial of the existence of climate change by conservatives and their followers in the United States.
 

Segment 2: "Don't Feel Sorry for Refugees – Believe in Them"
(14 minutes)

"We have seen advances in every aspect of our lives — except our humanity," says Luma Mufleh, a Jordanian immigrant and Muslim of Syrian descent who founded the first accredited school for refugees in the United States. Mufleh shares stories of hope and resilience, explaining how she's helping young people from war-torn countries navigate the difficult process of building new homes. Get inspired to make a personal difference in the lives of refugees with this powerful talk.
 

Segment 3: "The United States of ALEC"
(41 minutes)

Bill Moyers' report on the most influential corporate-funded political force most of America has never heard of -- ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. A national consortium of state politicians and powerful corporations, ALEC presents itself as a “nonpartisan public-private partnership”. But behind that mantra lies a vast network of corporate lobbying and political action aimed to increase corporate profits at public expense without public knowledge.
 

Segment 4: "Seeds of Freedom"
(28 minutes)

This film, narrated by Jeremy Irons, details how seeds, which have been the heart of traditional farming and natural biodiversity since the beginning of agriculture, are being transformed into an expensive, patented commodity used to monopolize the global food system.
 

Segment 5: "The Laura Flanders Show"
(26 minutes)

The GOP's anti-Obamacare push is defeated for now. But what if the debate over healthcare was as much about human and community health as it is about partisan politics? This week on the LF Show, health crusaders Loretta Ross and Lynn Paltrow explain why reproductive justice requires racial equity and Laura celebrates Oregon's new Reproductive Health Equity Act which moved everyone forward, together, regardless of income, citizenship status, and gender identity.
