  1. Hi Mark,

    Beautiful scenes indeed. I don’t know if you’ve seen the
    final instalment of Frozen Planet with David Attenborough, but I blogged about
    it recently.

    Frozen Planet told us that at the rate at which the sea-ice
    is melting, (30% of the ice melted away between 1980 and 2010) the North Pole
    could be open water by as soon as 2020. I find this, and the impact that it
    will have on our wider planet, very alarming. However, I strongly believe that
    Frozen Planet is a tool that can open people’s minds to this problem across the
    world. You can see my blog about this here:

    Let’s hope people start to take note!

  2. Yeah, I caught the last episode – I thought it was very well put together. Tackled climate change in a non-nonsense, honest way – also, it was important that a mainstream program dealt with the science, pure and simple, given all the deliberate nonsense being spread by deniers.
