ABSTRACT
The article underscores the participation of television broadcasting companies in spreading the consciousness on climate change. Discovery Channel is set to air "Project Earth" and Al Gore's documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" as follow-up to "Plane Earth." Moreover, NBC Universal is generating the biggest effort, with over 100 hours across its combined broadcast and cable properties. Sci Fi Channel and CNBC are also doing their own share in promoting awareness on climate change.
