The Weather Channel Celebrates Earth Day with Singer Sheryl Crow and Activist Laurie David
ATLANTA - On Sunday, April 22, The Weather Channel will celebrate the 37th year of Earth Day with two new episodes of Forecast Earth.
At 5 p.m. ET, Forecast Earth will tag along on Sheryl Crow’s “Stop Global Warming tour,” talk with environmental activist Laurie David, and look at the state of today’s environment by visiting three parts of the country:
Texas, where energy company TXU’s recently announced plans to build nuclear power plants, threaten to position the state as the country’s “climate ground zero";
Pennsylvania, where a forward-thinking company is developing technology that keeps coal on the table … but this time, it’s cleaner; and
California, where one city’s proactively turning it’s business and homeowners green … one street at a time!
The show will also feature comments from President George W. Bush, former Vice President Al Gore and U.S. Senator James Inhofe.
At 5:30pm ET, the second new episode of Forecast Earth will find prominent figures from both sides of the global warming issue debating several of the most frequent arguments made by the global warming skeptics, including the number one complaint: “If forecasters can’t predict the weather 3-days out, certainly they can’t forecast a year, a decade or a century out!
“Earth Day is very important to us and our viewers,” said Debora Wilson, president of The Weather Channel Companies. “This year, the focus of our coverage will be on exploring the biggest mysteries of our Earth’s climate system and informing viewers what they can do to facilitate improvements in their environment. In addition to the new episodes of Forecast Earth, we’ll have live reports all day from our correspondents in Chicago, Washington DC and New York City.”
