Storyline

The show presents potential solutions to global warming, followed by a panel discussion about the road ahead. Acknowledging the scientific consensus on the issue, the debate will steer clear of the pointless "skeptics vs. alarmist" angle and focus on what we can do as individuals, a nation and a species to avert the impacts of climate change. Attenborough's film lays out seven components of a sane response to global warming - strategies and targets from the household to big industries and government. But each one has implications, and many - like a growing reliance on nuclear power - are highly contentious. Our goal is to debate these strategies in a positive and constructive spirit: combating the paralysis of swirling fears with concrete ideas for informed action." But in retrospective, in 2006, Attenborough did not have enough scientific evidence to be more blunt. So, the author of this review simply summarizes the situation of year 2011 as following: Pollution, eating species into ... Written by Peter D

follows "Are We Changing Planet Earth?"
16 September 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

This is the second part of the program following "Are We Changing Planet Earth?" David Attenborough examines the computer climate change models and predictions of the future. It uses a fictitious family called Carbons to lay out the emissions from an average family.

This is the more speculative of the two program especially trying to predict the future with computer programs. At least Attenborough asks how reliable are these models. The answer is not convincing enough.

The Carbons family is a silly conceit. There is no need to use fictional families to demonstrate energy use when the program could use real people to give real intensity to the discussion. The whole show feels like it's talking down to the audience which takes away from the impact of the real information.
