The Truth About Climate Change [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ David Attenborough
The Truth About Climate Change [DVD] DVD ~ David Attenborough
"The Truth About Climate Change" is without a doubt a 5 star production in terms of accuracy as well as presentation, editing, camera work and audio. Beautiful and passionate delivery reinforces the absolute integrity of this information.
