Nuclear National Parks & Flynn Pleads Guilty: VICE News Tonight Full Episode (HBO)

This is December 1, 2017, FULL EPISODE of VICE News Tonight on HBO.

The nuclear production complex called the Hanford Site was a crucial part of the Manhattan Project, the U.S. government’s secret program that produced the atomic bomb. Plutonium developed at Hanford was used in the bomb dropped on Nagasaki in 1945. Now, the U.S. isn’t just preserving this piece of history—it’s showing it off.

Randall Woodfin won an unexpected upset over incumbent Birmingham Mayor William Bell by invigorating a grassroots network of young voters with a progressive pitch that echoed Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign. VICE News follows him during his first day on the job as he meets with government officials, his new constituents and plots out how to turn the city around.

After years of trying and failing, Republicans may finally succeed at allowing drilling for oil in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife refuge — thanks to the Tax Reform bill. VICE News talks to Senator Cantwell about why this push to include the ANWR might be more than just a bargaining chip.

Plus, Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn is expected to plead guilty to lying to the FB and Director Guillermo del Toro talks about his latest film, “Shape of Water.”

Emoji Domains & India’s War On Cash: VICE News Tonight Full Episode (HBO)

This is a November 30, 2017, FULL EPISODE of VICE News Tonight on HBO.

During the dot-com era of the ’90s, a simple domain name could sell for millions. Since then, search engines have made prime URLs less important, and now a new kind of domain name is up for grabs. VICE News talks to the man who believes emoji domains could be his second shot at an Internet gold rush.

In June, members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA) resigned to protest the Trump administration’s inattention. In advance of World Aids Day, VICE News interviews one council member who resigned and one who remained.

In November 2016, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that he was immediately banning the use of the two most common banknotes — which meant taking 86 percent of the country’s currency out of circulation overnight. One year into the policy, VICE News went to India to see if Modi’s economic gamble was worth the risk.

Mapping Navajo Nation: VICE News Tonight on HBO

Navajo Nation is the largest Native American territory in the country, sprawling across nearly 28,000 square miles and three states. It can be hard to find your way around, and not just because the lands are mostly rural. The majority of homes and businesses in Navajo Nation don’t have addresses.

Navajo Nation is split into 110 chapters, and about 70 of them don’t have street names or numbered addresses, which adds up to at least 50,000 unmarked properties.

“We don’t have fancy roads and streets that go North, East, South, West, in a grid system,” rural addressing supervisor M.C. Baldwin told VICE News correspondent Nellie Bowles. “Our roads are going all over the place.”

Waiting for Running Water (Excerpt from ‘Contamination Nation’)

Watch “Living Without Water: Contamination Nation” – http://bit.ly/1NEuRvN

There are tens of thousands of Americans living without clean, running water on the Navajo Nation today. This is because decades of uranium mining have contaminated the majority of water sources on the reservation.

VICE News travels to New Mexico to find out how people are coping, and if there is hope for the future.

In this excerpt, VICE News reporter Neha Shastry spends time with Ben Lewis, a former uranium miner who has been living without running water in his home on the reservation.

The Harsh Reality of Oil Spill Cleanups (Excerpt from ‘Pipeline Nation’)

Watch the full documentary: http://bit.ly/1EG1HE1

A pipeline network more than 2.5 million miles long transports oil and natural gas throughout the United States — but a top official in the federal government’s pipeline safety oversight agency admits that the regulatory process is overstretched and “kind of dying.” A recent spike in the number of spills illustrates the problem: the Department of Transportation recorded 73 pipeline-related accidents in 2014, an 87 percent increase over 2009.

Despite calls for stricter regulations over the last few years, the rules governing the infrastructure have largely remained the same. Critics say that this is because of the oil industry’s cozy relationship with regulators, and argue that violations for penalties are too low to compel compliance.

VICE News traveled to Glendive, Montana, to visit the site of a pipeline spill that dumped more than 50,000 gallons of oil into the Yellowstone River, to find out why the industry has such weak regulatory oversight.

In this excerpt, VICE News heads to the site of the Yellowstone River pipeline spill where the EPA’s Onsite Coordinator talks about the difficulties of recovering oil once it’s polluted the water, and whether pipe degradation has contributed to the increase in pipeline spills across the United States.

An Uncertain Future for the Navajo (Excerpt from ‘Cursed by Coal’)

Watch the full documentary: http://bit.ly/1Gpy0cS

There’s a resource curse on the Navajo Nation. The 27,000-square-mile reservation straddling parts of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah has an extremely high abundance of many energy resources — particularly coal. That coal is what’s burned to provide much of the Southwest with electricity, and it creates jobs for the Navajo. But the mining and burning have also caused environmental degradation, serious health issues, and displacement.

VICE News travels to the Navajo Nation to find out how its abundance of coal is affecting the future of the Navajo people.

In this excerpt, VICE News correspondent Neha Shastry speaks with Joe Allen, a lifelong resident of the Navajo Nation, who is worried about living near one of the largest and dirtiest coal fired power plants in the country.
