_ BBC produces excellent programs. Their nature programs are among the best ever made. They have a 7-part program on the Arctic regions, which they are selling to networks around the world. The final part is about climate change and its devastating effect upon the polar region...and the world.
Discovery Channel has chosen not to buy this part, because it might be too disturbing for American viewers (the handful that watch Discovery). They must fear the bigger media backlash of any network airing a program that goes against popular (wrong word) belief beaten into people’s heads by the Republican ignorance machine.
Americans will continue to keep their heads buried in the sand...until the ice caps melt and flood the hole. Ignorant (and self-serving) idiots care nothing about what they are doing for their descendants.
