Update: Discovery has announced this morning it will be airing the seventh episode. A full victory notice will come soon. Great work!
The Discovery Channel has chosen not to air the full final episode of the much anticipated Frozen Planet series, written and produced by the same folks that brought us Blue Planet and Planet Earth, two staggeringly beautiful documentary series on the marvel that is our planet. The subject of the final series is global warming and climate change, and reflects on some effects of human impact on the natural world.
Discovery Channel prides itself on revealing the mysteries and unseen worlds of our planet. The Climate Change episode has the potential to move a lot of people, from one of the leading nations in global emissions, towards greater stewardship of this precious earth. This move acts in defiance of Discovery Channel's original aims, which was to inspire the public about the world around them. The American public has a right to be inspired.
Please air the final episode of the Frozen Planet series.
