We watched the programme, and for the first time my partner was in agreement with me about the constant harping on about climate change. The clips showing the old whaling station on South Georgia had nothing to do with climate change, but we were all told that they were very bad people for doing what they did.
As others have said, we will perhaps watch the future episodes with the sound turned down.
What they omitted to point out is that whale oil was used from the 16th to 19th centuries principally for lighting, lubrication and the manufacture of soap, textiles, jute, varnish, explosives and paint. The substitute products today are derived from oil and gas and electricity, much of it from fossil fuels. Margarine manufacture now uses vegetable oils as a base. The advances of mankind have helped save the remaining whales.
Simon Reeve’s ‘Americas’ also continues the Climate Change brainwashing of the younger generation. He even mentioned ‘the Green New Deal’. He didn’t mention that it would bankrupt the USA. They want to ban air travel, cars and cows. They want to ‘upgrade’ every building in the USA. The costs would be unimaginable.
