Introducing HuffPost's First Documentary, On Why You Need To Care About Antarctica

I went to Antarctica to film a documentary about climate change for HuffPost. Sounds simple, right? Except... I wanted to do something different. I didn't just want it to be something that disappeared into the depths of the internet, or prompted that glassy-eyed look that tends to descend on many of us when the words climate change are uttered. I didn't want to try and match the BBC or Werner Herzog and make something beautiful. We all know Antarctica is beautiful. I wanted to show the other side. The grit, the determination it takes to even get out there. The damn hard side of actually filming in such an unforgiving environment.

Donald Trump, Our Children Will Never Forgive You For This

Ben Brown | Posted 02.06.2017 | UK
Ben Brown

In one swift, selfish and vengeful act, Donald Trump has sentenced our children to a life more difficult. A planet more vulnerable. So when rising sea levels begin to flood New York City, it will be on Trump's head. When children are dying from lack of food and water, it will be on Trump's head. When millions upon millions of displaced people lose their homes, it will be on Trump's head. When our forests disappear and our rivers dry up, when our animals die and when vicious natural disasters wipe out families, it will be on Trump's head.
