The Discovery Channel channel, TLC, etc. are full of outright pseudo-science
programming. Even some of the better shows have a pseudo-science element.
It is virtually impossible for the average person to separate real science
from pseudo-science in these shows.

There's an anti-scientific element in the whole environmental movement.
That element spins the science or adopts pseudo-science whenever the
real science doesn't fit their agenda. The agenda is humans manipulate
nature with the help of scientific discovery and technological innovation,
manipulation of nature is bad, therefore humans are bad for nature and need
to be stopped.

"Nature" over humans.
