As the Earth's average temperature rises each year, experts warn that we are nearing a fatal tipping point, 2 degrees Celsius above the norm, that will set into motion a cascade of natural disasters that will devastate America and the world. From raging fires to epic superstorms, volcanic blasts and rising seas, will human existence be pushed to the brink?
I've watched this twice to try to glean anything more from it than rambling generalizations, apocalyptic visions based on worst case scenarios and outright fear tactics. Number one, The History Channel has devolved into anything BUT history. It's become another "reality show" and science fiction channel that produces such gems as "Ancient Aliens", "Pawn Stars", "Nostradamus Effect", "Ice Road Truckers", "Counting Cars", "American Pickers" (which is actually a decent show), "America Unearthed" and other series' that have nothing to do with history or are in any way educational. This particular 2 hour piece mixes science fiction with a few scant facts based on scenarios that are, AT BEST, pseudo-scientific nonsense. It's a scaremonger's dream dealing with a VERY unlikely future, using the same old tired and incorrect "anthropomorphic global warming" temperature data sets...the same data that is continually being discredited because it's been tampered with. It should not come as a surprise that this is being presented as a "likely" scenario and as scientific fact. Indeed it is nothing more than a carefully disguised "disaster movie". It is simply pablum for many of the uninformed and frightened masses.
