None of the networks has yet managed to send a correspondent to tropical Bali for the United Nations' conference on global warming. Yesterday, CBS anchor Katie Couric posed Primary Questions to the Presidential candidates on the issue. Last Friday from Borneo, NBC's Ian Williams issued warnings with images of palm oil plantations and ABC's Nick Watt with orangutans. Now Anne Thompson takes another crack at illustrating the ills of global warming for NBC's Our Planet series. She visited New York City's Bronx Zoo to show us penguins who are not endangered by the lack of ice in the Antarctic Ocean. "It is no coincidence," Thompson told us, that the World Wildlife Fund has timed the release of its report on the depletion of the habitat for the emperor penguin for the Bali confab. "The coldest place on earth is warming, threatening the birds' very survival."
