Weather Channel produces climate videos

For decades meteorologists shied away from talking about climate change. Some didn’t trust the science; they knew how hard it was to model weather five days from now so how could you trust the models for climate decades into the future? Some worried about putting off some of their denier viewers.

No more. The Weather Channel is producing short what-life-will-be-like-in-2100 segments. This one looks at Charleston SC. The Weather Channel is a great venue for this message; people all over the country, across the political spectrum, watch it, especially the older folks who seem to be disproportionately deniers. (My parents would watch it for hours on end.) My only complaint is the videos don’t end on a what-you-can-do message.
