TV Junkie: 'Extreme Ice' on PBS - Beautiful but Frightening

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

"Extreme Ice" on PBS's "Nova" @ 8pm

"Extreme Ice" on PBS's "Nova" @ 8pm
Last weekNPR did a segment on tonight's "Nova" which even sounded cool - check out the photos, the video footage will be even more amazing, if not terrifying, as we have more proof of climate change (PBS @ 8pm).Thank you Oxygen, for the priceless research that determined "early 25% of women would rather win "America's Next Top Model" than the Nobel Peace Prize, however, 75% of women said that they would be willing to shave their heads to save the life of a stranger." We already knew that thousands would risk getting stomped to death in a riot in order to even "compete" in a modeling show but I guess we needed more of these gems in order to get on with our days.

Online TV watching continues to expand and is proved by Hulu's 30+% increase in traffic this February. Old media might slowly be "getting it" - we will give them that.
