We don’t normally talk much about TV shows here on Inhabitat, but this new documentary which airs tonight looks so compelling – we thought we’d call your attention to it. Tonight, at 9pm, CNN’s Planet in Peril kicks off – using first-hand investigative reporting to provide a better understanding of global warming and the current environmental crisis. Its great to see a news channel covering this issue so thoroughly and we applaud CNN for putting this together. Watch it tonight at 9pm if you can!

Tuesday, Oct. 23, and Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.


Bringing viewers the stories behind the statistics, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Animal Planet host and wildlife biologist Jeff Corwin will focus on four main issues that threaten the planet and its inhabitants: climate change, deforestation, species loss and overpopulation. Planet in Peril, filmed across four continents and 13 countries, airs over two nights on CNN/U.S. on Tuesday, Oct. 23, and Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. (ET/PT) and globally on CNN International.
