Afraid? Bought off? Liars? As we've been warned it will be too late before we realize the ultimate damage we have done and wish we could undo it....

What a shame - we were enjoying this series so much. We are contributing enormously to climate change due to overpopulation of the planet. Cut back on procreation and plant trees, trees and more trees. This would help big time.

What a crock! I think people should boycott cable TV. Between faux news, and that drivel they serve up on supposed education channels, it's all just a waste of money.

Discovery's abandoning of climate issues was one of the reasons I pulled the plug on cable last year. First Planet Green becomes the Alien and Conspiracy Theory Channel, now this. Total waste of the airwaves--digital or otherwise.

Shameful, the Discovery Channel is not the shadow of what it was years ago.

Discovery Channel... that's another Rupert Murdoch-owned company, isn't it? If so, this isn't exactly surprising, but it's still disreputable.

Why, Terry? Because we have caused the atrocity which is global warming, and because, like everything else, when we feel guilty, we choose not to look at what we've done.

I noticed much of my emails, pertaing to climate change, went straight to my junk folder and marked as spam! I never set any ofmy emails, to send any of my mail to junk. Anyway, tried this link and it's listed as a phishing site, by McaFee.

It makes no sense at all...what a shame!

It all makes perfect sense when you consider corporations do not want news or items on THEIR property (mass media) which will hurt them or their profits.

Since talking about global warming or climate change is bad for corporations and for their global profits, it is better to avoid the whole subject altogether, or to deny it is happening by funding ONLY scientists who agree with them, and make up stuff to go along with the corporate line.. That is ok to show on corporate sponsored TV, newspapers, and etc..

Welcome to the world of the upside down, backwards, and unreal... solar and loan guarantees for this industry is 'bad', but corporate welfare in the form of direct subsidies for oil companies making record profits is 'good'.

For shame!
Problem is that this is part of how our world is being destroyed.

Right, so where are the petitions and protests? We all know it's not really 'scheduling conflicts'.
