The Weather Channel Says, "The Science is In"

Who better to weigh in on a changing climate than the professionals, journalists and experts who have made weather their life:  the folks from The Weather Channel. Starting last week, Climate 25 is a series of interviews on the Weather Channel with prominent people who believe climate change is happening.  The interesting part?  The interviewees aren't just environmentalists, they are folks from across the societal spectrum - heck, Al Gore isn’t even in the lineup.

Spoiler Alert: the Weather Channel isn’t interested in initiating a debate about whether climate change is happening through these interviews.  The science is already in they say. And as their website states, "[we have] adopted a position on climate change that can generally be summed up as follows: we report the science, and the science consistently says climate change is real, humans are causing it, and we must prepare for its effects."

Further, the network says its "The Climate 25" series is about science, not politics. 

Who are the Climate 25?

The 25 interviewees are from a multitude of backgrounds including conservative, Republican, and military leaders  The idea is that the viewing public, who is skeptical or less knowledgeable about climate change, might be turned off by traditional environmental messages, but be more attentive to the business or military leaders they respect.

U.S. Army Gen. Charles Jacoby, Unilever CEO Paul Polman, former Environmental Protection Agency administrator Christine Todd Whitman and former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson are among the participants. The 25 are filmed in black-and-white speaking directly to the camera about their perspectives on climate change.

The "Climate 25" series hopes to stimulate conversation and action - across party lines.  And, truly, only by seeing climate change as an issue that confronts all of us, can we make meaningful change.
