The Weather Channel’s New Series on Climate: Tipping Points

October 16, 2013

Hot tip from Jeff Masters – New Weather Channel series starts Saturday, October 19.

The Weather Channel:

Hosted by Climate Journalist and adventurer Bernice Notenboom, Tipping Points embraces commentary from leading climate scientists surveying the complexity of the major tipping points effecting our current climate and their impact on changing weather patterns around the globe.

Adventurous and informative, Tipping Points explores the interconnectedness of all the elements that make up our climate system that influence global and local weather patterns. The Earth is in a delicate equilibrium; once one factor reaches its respective tipping point the other factors will also breach stability. As the atmosphere heats up and the chemical makeup of the atmosphere shifts there will be repercussions felt on a global scale. These elements are what Bernice and her team of climate authorities are going to explore is some of the most remote locations on the planet.

From the canopies of The Amazon to the ice sheets of Siberia, these climate specialists will chase answers to behavioral patterns of tipping elements in the climate system affecting our weather systems.

How close to tipping are we? When will these climates tip and what will be the indicators? How will our climate and weather patterns be affected once stability has been ruptured? Will large-scale discontinuities be the biggest cause for climate catastrophes in this century? These are the questions Tipping Points dares to ask, and further answer.

    Now we need to figure out how we can get shows like this on NBC, ABC, and CBS in prime time. Maybe if it were inserted amongst the “reality trash” shows someone would watch it (if only by accident).

    Some activist needs to explore funding for such an effort from foundations etc., as well as what corporations might be willing to buy ads on such a show. The various eco groups should band together and work to that end. I have noticed that NBC Nightly News HAS been collaborating with the Weather Channel and occasionally putting out real truth rather than “fair and balanced” false equivalency “he said, she said” BS about climate change How do we encourage more of that?
