According to researcher and director of SUNAC (Sunlight, Nutrition and Health Research Center) William B.

Comments Off on BBC Unveils Awesome Frozen Planet Trailer; Series Will Tackle Climate Change (Video)

Holy sh!t. I just watched the trailer for Frozen Planet , the latest nature doc collaboration between the BBC and the Discovery Channel, and it gave me chills.
