Its split into two parts, as the first half of The Truth About Climate Change examines some of the high profile natural disasters of the past few years, and questions how much of a part humans had to play in them. Attenborough also discusses various other lower profile environmental changes too, and what kind of impact theyre having. Its intelligently done, without, crucially, coming across as preachy.
The rest of The Truth About Climate Change is then taken up by looking ahead, to what the long-term impact on the planet is likely to be, and things we can do to make sure those worse case scenarios simply dont come true. Given the strengths of the arguments made before the documentary arrives at this segment, its not something youll want to ignore.
The Truth About Climate Change is no Saturday night watch, but it is a thoughtful documentary that certainly offers an unsettling amount of food for thought. Fortunately, it does remember, through Attenborough, to spend enough time working through the actions after its outlined the damage thats being done. And that makes it a rounded, interesting piece of work.--Jon Foster

As you would expect from a BBC and D Attenborough combination, this is a very good overview of climate change, with good narration and visuals. Read morePublished on 16 Oct 2011 by N. Waby
David Attenborough is a gentleman scientist from the days before the politicisation of science.
No scientist can be an expert in all fields. Read more
