    I think this show is a great introduction to the THEORY of human caused climate change and I say theory because this show directly links storms to human industrialization and that is wrong from a scientific perspective. Even evolution is still a theory.
    Now what i DO like is the exposure this show brings to areas like Yemen, Bangladesh, Indonesia etc that most westerners do not see so

    You might assume that this meant sacrificing some measure of journalistic credibility in the quest for attention. But the truth is, Mr. Ford and Mr. Cheadle are just as good as any seasoned television correspondent at the newsmagazine drill.

    Years of Living Dangerously, produced by James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub and Arnold Schwarzenegger, does a good job in its premiere of widening the discussion of global warming.

    The actors are passionate, but not experts. They let the scientists, the workers, the officials, and others tell their stories. It's part of Years of Living Dangerously's refreshing and inclusive tone: it's not important how one gets to this point of understanding the issues, but simply that one does.
