|Title||Global Warming: The Signs And The Science|
|Description||Over the last million years there have been countless successive ice ages and warming periods. So what's different now? The answer is: for the first time in Earth's history there are humans, and we are making a natural situation worse.
Human activities are provoking an unprecedented era of atmospheric warming and climatic change. We're seeing more drought, more wildfires, more flooding, bigger storms and more variable weather. Tropical diseases are moving north, childhood respiratory illness is skyrocketing, and in the last three decades over 30 diseases new to science have emerged.
Global Warming: The Signs and The Science takes viewers across America to meet people from every walk of life...their words and stories uncover the reality of climate change. And we'll meet fascinating scientists, working at the edge of climate science. Their latest findings are unsettling...and indisputable. Because global warming is much more than "just the heat."
As we start to face our vulnerability to a changing climate—people across the USA and around the world have decided to do something. They are determined to be part of the solution to this issue, and have launched all kinds of initiatives aimed at reducing the impacts of climate change.

"The reason why most humans aren't environmentalists is because they don't feel like they are part of the environment, and they are." -Nia Robinson
"Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck are climate science experts—not even close—so it makes no sense that they should be trusted as leading minds on this [global warming] issue by millions of Americans. Regardless of political party, everyone should be paying attention to what credible scientists are saying. It's really not that difficult: expert opinion should be sought from experts. Relying on politicians who are shackled one way or the other by their tribe is a foolhardy way to go about figuring out a science issue. Their goal on most days is to defend and promote their position—whether it's right or wrong. It's even worse to rely on professional rabble rousers on radio and TV for the final word on important scientific matters. Have no doubts, their primary concern is advertising revenue, certainly not scientific accuracy or even the state of our planet. They succeed through controversy, mistrust, and division. They are not scientists. They do not do science. They do not know science. Scientists know science."
