We’re not all that surprised when weather predictions for next week—or even tomorrow—don’t pan out.


So when the United Nations seeks to drum up support for this month’s Climate Summit by posting videos of “weather reports from the future” to show us what weather will look like in 2050 if we don’t change our carbon-emitting ways, we have a right to a little skepticism.


The press release signifying the publication of the videos is pretty scary:


Mega-droughts and deadly heatwaves. A year’s rainfall in a month. Coastal cities under water. Destruction of ocean life. Invasive pests. Arctic cruises. These are some of the scenarios for 2050 from a series of imaginary but realistic reports which give a foretaste of warmer, wetter and wilder weather in the future.


The teaser video shows clips of popular news people around the world reporting on extreme weather in the future and implying climate change affects us already and will only worsen as time goes on. But not even the data and the UN’s own Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s reports lead to such conclusions.Scissors-32x32.png

Plans to Turn ‘Politically Binding’ UN Climate Change Accord Into Federal Law

CNSNews.com) – Obama administration officials who say they intend to sign a “politically binding” agreement to drastically reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions at the United Nations’ (UN) climate change conference in Paris next year already have a legal strategy to turn any non-binding accord into federal law, warns Christopher Horner, senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI).

Horner told CNSNews.com that the “name and shame” effort is an alternative to a new climate change treaty already being drafted by the UN that would have to be ratified by the U.S. Senate.


“Obama’s statement acknowledges that he cannot get a new climate treaty past China or U.S. voters,” Horner told CNSNews.com.Scissors-32x32.png
