Expert Fallacy

It is inappropriate to make light of someones misfortune, but did Bob Woodruff get the the ok from his doctors before agreeing to host the news media travesty Earth 2100: Is this the Final Century of our Civilization? 

 I only watched a few seconds of it somewhere in the middle of the program, but it presented the widely discredited “warmer and drier” theory as fact.

Does anyone at ABC News have the expertise to evaluate the claims of self proclaimed climate experts? If not, why would they present the claims as fact? Because they’re “experts”? Hasn’t it occurred to anyone in the news media that these “experts” have financial motivations just like the news media does? Or is ABC hyping a false crisis in order to generate ratings and advertising dollars?
