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

"Extreme Ice" on PBS's "Nova" @ 8pm
LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Last week NPR 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.
