This is an example of another overproduced video piece. Obviously there is all the talent you need to make a really compelling segment. The climatologist is more than up to the task, but your producer felt the need to toss in as many distracting pieces of b-roll as possible. There is nothing wrong with a talking head. And the incessant audio supplementation (I dare not call it music) is at least 10 db too hot and unvarying. Background silence would be preferable. This is a failure to trust your viewers to be intellectually fitted to actually listening to a source without some kind of sweetening. The result is treacle.
