Just brilliant
16 January 2008 | by (The Levant) – See all my reviews

I don't know how to start describing this series. I only came upon it recently via the Geography channel. Frankly it's hard to imagine a series like this being made today, because it demolishes the Global Warming hoax and therefore it would not be given a BBC budget. How lucky it is that this series was commissioned and budgeted before the climate change movement got their grip on the media and that nobody at National Geographic noticed just how subversive it is.

Professor Manning demonstrates that throughout its existence of approx 4.5 billion years the Earth has been by turn both very very hot and also very very cold. Its magnetic field has switched from North to South and back again many, many times. Sea levels have risen and sunk an infinity of times. Ice ages have come and gone times without number. And all this without any help from mankind. (Unless, that is, those sturdy cave dwellers in the early Holocene were building gas-guzzling SUVs.) How did Nature manage it?

Needless to say, this series was commissioned and produced long before the current hysteria about climate change had got going. Catch it while you can. It will probably be illegal to watch it at some point in the near future.
