Re: the future is wild, review

There's nothing wrong with speculation that's identified as such. From the
recent round of complaints, it sounds like the latest documentaries (which
I haven't seen) don't do a good job of identifying what's speculative.
Definitely, at the time in which I was watching the documentary, one of my
relatives (mother) was also watching and thought that the entire program was
a serious discussion of the future fauna of Earth and that somehow these
clever scientists had figured it out somewhat. Consider, has anyone here
ever seen that documentary about dinosaurs long ago (early 1990's) where the
host (Don Lessem?) turns into a dinosaur? When I first saw that, I was
rather young and took it very seriously.
