User Reviews

 
The most important episode of the show to date.

An outstanding episode within an already outstanding series. Its topic is the greenhouse effect and humanities influence on the global climate. The episode describes clearly the evidence, the devastating consequences and the possible solutions to a problem that involves us all. Although disheartening at times, it drives its points home.

Since the shows beginnings, some people have claimed it was "political", "leftist", "liberal", "preachy" or "voicing only one side".

That is not what this show is or does. It's a scientific show. In other words it's not so much about opinions or beliefs, it's about facts. And if the facts are not compatible with your beliefs, it's time to question your beliefs, not the facts. Even if they are uncomfortable.
