Gene Karpinski, President of the League of Conservation Voters, wrote a new blog on Huffington Post about the upcoming Showtime documentary series, The Years of Living Dangerously, which discusses the impacts of climate change and how we can start to tackle it.
Climate change is the challenge of our generation, but you wouldn't always know that when you turn on the television. Coverage of climate change has not kept pace with the scientific milestones and impacts we're seeing outside our window. A report released this year found that the big three networks spent just an hour and 42 minutes talking about it during their nightly newscasts last year. That's why the upcoming Showtime documentary series, The Years of Living Dangerously, is so important.
The resources behind this documentary series are usually reserved for the latest Hollywood blockbuster. But instead, the Years of Living Dangerously is bringing together a cross-section of journalists and celebrities to shine a spotlight on the challenges of climate change and the opportunities to combat it.
