    I watched it.

    I would have liked more explanation on their sources, as well as a peer reviewed bibliography of some sort. Frankly I thought it was just a bunch of scary images mixed with one side of a very two sided argument. to pretend it didn't have a very real agenda is a bit nieve.

    I know this show wasn't for the academic crew, it was for the masses who will believe anything Tommy talks about.

      Yeah, i know attacking the messanger is always a sure fire way to prove you are right... and all those scientists they talked to and about...or the 937 studies.. all wrong...lol.

      I saw an intersting Interview with Brokaw about this show. He was Amazed at the opposition he recieved. From the White House (Refusing to be interviewed) and his original Idea to have NBC show it was met with a door slammed shut buy NBC's owner General Electric. 3 scientists who are outspoken on this issue have had their federal funds threatened, and 2 of the universities they work at, have been threatened also to have federal funds revoked if they continue their resaerch.

      However, IT WILL BE REPLAYED THIS SATURDAY AT 8 ON THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL... I Hope some more of you watch it, and tell us what you think.

        Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change:
        There is new and stronger evidence that most of the warming observed over the last 50 years is attributable to human activities.
        The IPCC predicts that global warming will increase temperatures worldwide between 2.5 and 10.4 degrees Fahrenheit between 1990 and 2100 if no action is taken to reduce greenhouse gases. This amount of warming, according to the IPCC, could raise sea levels by as much as three feet

          I didn't see that as we don't have the Discovery Channel (damn cheap cable!) but I did make a point of going to see An Inconvenient Truth. I assume they talk about the same things.

          It's got me pretty scared, especially since my family is doing everything we can, it's sort of depressing to see other people not really caring.

            The Apathy is rather amazing.... people will even go as far as being obstinate on the topic. The American Oil Industry has done a fantastic job in the propaganda Dept., and some politicians have backed that up.

            It's like a 16 year old barreling down the road at 100 MPH thinking they are invincible. Hang On.... as we pass the blinking lights telling us the bridge is out... and no one notices.
