      broadcast the program Global Warming: The Signs and the
      Science. (Check local listings for dates and times in your
      area).

      This hour-long documentary, which contains many interviews
      with leading global change scientists, profiles people who
      are living with the grave consequences of a changing
      climate, as well as the individuals, communities and
      scientists inventing new approaches to safeguard our
      children's future. Filmed across the U.S., Asia and South
      America, this program brings the reality of climate change
      to life and offers viewers a variety of ways to make a
      difference in their own communities.

      ** ABOUT THE PROGRAM

      < http://www.pbs.org/previews/globalwarming/ >

      Global Warming: The Signs and the Science is a documentary
      that explores what is arguably the most significant
      environmental phenomenon of the last 10,000 years.
      International recording artist Alanis Morissette hosts and
      narrates this cautionary look at the forces of climate
      change.

      Filmed in the United States, Asia and South America, this
      wide-ranging, compelling and accessible program brings the
      reality of climate change to life and offers viewers
      inspiring examples of people who are making a difference in
      their own communities.

      The program features numerous science experts who review a
      growing body of evidence of the grave consequences of a
      changing climate, and explores how individuals, communities
      and organizations across America are creating new approaches
      to safeguard future generations.

      The documentary also looks at evidence that human activities
      are provoking an unprecedented era of atmospheric warming
      and climatic events: more drought, wildfires and flooding;
      polar melting; more powerful storms; and more variable
      weather. Tropical diseases are moving north; childhood
      respiratory illnesses are skyrocketing; and in the last
      three decades more than 30 diseases new to science have
      emerged.
