This Week on Bill Moyers Journal - July 6

NEWSLETTER - Friday, July 6, 2007

“With new technology we are prepared to explore the living world and add a new dimension to biology. We are the brains of the biosphere. We are the ones that finally, after four-and-a-half billion years of evolution actually developed enough reasoning power to see what's happening.” - E.O. Wilson

This week on Bill Moyers Journal (KCET TV)

Dedicating his life to the exploration of life on Earth, E.O. Wilson is one of the world’s foremost authorities on biology. Bill Moyers Journal profiles the author of 25 Books and recipient of two Pulitzer Prizes, who speaks about what humankind needs to understand about the Earth to heal it and about his latest project The Encyclopedia of Life - a digital, online catalog of every single living species on the planet.

Bill Moyers Journal updates a report on the non-profit group, the Earth Conservation Corps (ECC), composed of young adults from the banks of the Anacostia River - an area of environmental disaster and a home for violence. There in the shadow of the Capitol, the ECC works to reclaim a dying neighborhood by providing leadership tools to disadvantaged youth while cleaning up the environment.
