Discovery Channel won’t air episode of BBC’s “Frozen Planet” because “US viewers don’t believe in global warming”

I can’t find the words to say how sick, how criminal this act of corporate cowardice.

Can you? If so, please contact Discovery Communications, and let them know that by thus caving in to the extremist lunacy, or mere pigheadedness, of some Americans, they’ve done their bit to kill us all:


Climate change episode of Frozen Planet won’t be shown in the U.S. as viewers don’t believe in global warming
Climate change particularly sensitive during presidential race
BBC says Attenborough features heavily on final episode, and he is not famous outside UK
Environment groups brand decision ‘unhelpful’

Please prove me wrong by not disappointing the entire human race by not airing this precious episode, which pertains to our survival.
