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’

An episode of the BBC’s Frozen Planet documentary series that looks at climate change has been scrapped in the U.S., where many are hostile to the idea of global warming.
British viewers will see all seven episodes of the multi-million-pound nature series throughout the Autumn.
But U.S. audiences will not be shown the last episode, which looks at the threat posed by man to the natural world.
