ABC News ran a news special in 2009 called Earth 2100, a program warning its viewers about the dangers of climate change. ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff says the show “puts participants in the future and asks them to report back about what it is like to live in this future world. The first stop is the year 2015.
Other voices can be heard saying that “Flames cover hundreds of square mile” and “We expect more intense hurricanes.” Another voice says, “Well, how warm is it going to get? How much will sea level rise? We don’t know really know where the end is.”
Describing dangerous temperature levels and dropping agricultural production, the news package brings in The Weather Channel’s Heidi Cullen, who says, “There’s about one billion people who are malnourished. That number just continually grows.”
The doomsday predictions for 2015 go further and include $12.00 for a gallon of milk and $9.00 a gallon for gasoline, if there is any gas at all that is left.
It didn't actually predict that New York would be under water by 2015... all the sound bytes mashed into the promo really doesn't represent what the special was.
In part it was an ask the viewers (in 2008) what 2015 would be like then they related the answers on GMA I think it was, as a precursor to the special.
The special itself was storytelling, going through life from birth in 2008 to 2100 and all the stuff that could happen if climate change wasn't addressed by 2015... with experts weighing in here and there.
