Right in the middle of the reports of the Paris attacks yesterday comes a really bizarre and tone deaf note of concern from Brian Williams of MSNBC. Brian was concerned about how the attacks will affect the messaging of the Paris Climate Change Conference which is scheduled to begin at the end of this month. I kid you not as you can see in this video of his interview with Weather Channel managing editor Sam Champion who was in Paris for an Al Gore event.
So Sam, you're there as part of this climate effort as you mention with former vice president Gore. What becomes of what you had hoped to be this big public campaign leading up the climate summit?
Gee, Brian. Perhaps people in both Paris as well as most of the rest of the world are a bit more worried about terrorism than climate summit messaging.
