This Earth Day, Join Discovery en Espanol in a Special Examination of our Environment and the Future of our Planet


MIAMI, April 14 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — In celebration of Earth Day, Discovery en Espanol, the leading provider of high-quality, real-world Spanish-language programming, will premiere several new shows that take a look at our planet and some of the astounding scenarios we may be faced with in the future.

The Earth Day special programming kicks off Sunday, April 20 with CAN WE CONTROL THE WEATHER? This special brings viewers face-to-face with the actual cutting-edge science that could one day be used to weaken or divert hurricanes, and uncovers the fascinating, and sometimes sinister, history of weather manipulation. Through interviews with leading meteorologists and atmospheric scientists, a unique examination of Hurricane Katrina and the Chernobyl disaster, and on-site reporting from hurricane-vulnerable locations, CAN WE CONTROL THE WEATHER? host Josh Bernstein brings viewers inside this significant weather debate to help separate science fact from science fiction. CAN WE CONTROL THE WEATHER? premieres on Discovery en Espanol on Sunday, April 20 at 8:00 PM ET/PT.

Immediately following CAN WE CONTROL THE WEATHER?, the factually based drama SUPERSTORM, airing at 9:00 PM ET/PT, will immerse viewers in a fictional account of a modern-day weather experiment as a team of top scientists attempts to divert a large hurricane threatening Miami using a man-made weather system. However, the system needed to create such a diversion will cause devastating flooding in other areas of the United States. At the final hour the scientists forgo their plan. But the U.S. government seizes control in an attempt to divert the hurricane from Miami. The Category 5 storm merges with another weather system and heads on an unforeseen path toward New York City. Now, the team must conduct a further experiment to help save lives by diverting the system from a direct hit on America’s most populous city.

From the impact and exploration of killer storms, Discovery en Espanol’s insightful Earth Day programming then takes a look and aims to shed light on man’s ever-growing footprint on the environment. In INVESTIGATION EARTH WITH JEFF CORWIN airing on April 22 at 9:00 PM ET/PT, Jeff will get up close and personal with endangered animals all over the world for an eye-opening expose on how humankind is invading the world’s wildernesses and impacting animal habitats.

This amazing special fully reveals Jeff’s great passion for conservation of our natural wildernesses and his love of the animals with whom we share the Planet. But Jeff’s self-appointed task is far more than simply a detailed, scientific audit of the threatened extinction of some of the world’s most magnificent predators. This is Jeff Corwin participating in some of the most cutting-edge scientific projects to save animal life around the globe.
