In Search Of... "The Coming Ice Age" (1978)

Watching this episode you can't help but somewhat roll your eyes considering today we're not threatened with an Ice Age but instead it's Global Warming. The Blizzards of 1978 certainly had an impact on people so I'm sure that's why the series decided to take a look at this. Yes, scaring people was a way to get ratings back then too. For the most part this is a very good episode but like I said, watching this in 2016 you can't help but laugh because the episode does warn of cold weather taking over the planet and of course that's not what we're being told today. The interviews are quite good and there's some great footage from the blizzards of that year, which makes this worth watching.

Episode: B+
