Global Warming comes to the Weather Channel
Well, there goes one more hour where you won't learn about the F5 tornado bearing down on your town.
The Weather Channel, once home to around-the-clock local and national weather and now home to shows such as Storm Stories and the happy It Could Happen Tomorrow, will now be launching a program about global warming. Titled The Climate Code with Dr. Heidi Cullen, the weekly series, which will premiere in October, will explore the issues surrounding, and the eventual effects of, global warming. The program will feature feature experts on this environmental change, as well as people like Al Gore and Ted Turner, who are passionate about these global phenomenon and have been drilling it into our skulls for several decades now.
The Climate Code will be part of a multi-platform initiative under the name Climate Watch. In addition to The Weather Channel series a companion broadband-video website named One Degree will be launched. It will contain video developed directly for the site as well as content from The Weather Channel. The goal of One Degree, according to Interactive VP of broadband and consumer applications Matthew De Gannon (put that on a business card), will be to provide an added dimension of how the global changes are affecting the lives of individuals, families, businesses and communities.
All I want to know is how soon Wilmington, Delaware will be a beach front community.
