An Open Letter to American Spectator

Speaking of Gore, science, movies, and the American public - what almost always bothers me when watching American-made “science” documentaries is how superficial the subject at hand is treated, as if getting into the details of the process is just too much to handle.

I much prefer the BBC documentaries, though they sometimes fall down on the job too.

Yes, the occasional NOVA show does a good job, but even that very long running series can fall into the “sciencetainment” trap.
