Even the Weather Channel is taking a stance against President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement.
In response to Thursday’s news, the Weather Channel’s website became a veritable trove of articles cautioning about the aftermath of Trump’s choice.
The channel’s homepage transformed into a series of headlines calling out the gravity (and reality) of climate change. “So, what happens to Earth now?” read one. “Still don’t care? Proof you should,” read another. They posted stories about collapsing ice shelves, California’s disappearing coastline, and the greening of Antarctica to hammer their point home.
And the internet took note of this unapologetic shift in editorial tone.
Hmm, I did not see a forecast for shade when I checked the Weather Channel app this morning. Yet here it is. pic.twitter.com/O85Uvl6zko

If you have a minute, https://t.co/KZC1Tqhv9L is pretty 👍🏽👍🏽 right now. They don't appear to be big fans of 45's decision…

Dogs are swearing, the Weather Channel's snarking, it's even worse mass hysteria than Bill Murray predicted in the first Ghostbusters. pic.twitter.com/kpJKuPDgpl
