Yes, that is Brad Pitt playing a bad weatherman in a Comedy Central sketch
As you are likely aware, last week President Trump decided to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord, a 2015 agreement between 196 countries to make drastic changes in an attempt to slow down climate change. Many people, including us, have been oscillating between outrage and sadness over this decision. Who else is angry? Apparently Brad Pitt, who made a special appearance on The Jim Jefferies Show recently as a fake weatherman to make a point about Trump’s decision making and the future of our planet.
Jim Jefferies opens up the sketch like this: “The world is still grappling with Trump withdrawing from the Paris Accord and we wanted to address it one more time before we say goodnight. To help us understand climate change and what it means for the world, he’s our own Jim Jefferies Show weatherman.”
And, lo and behold, our weatherman is none other than Brad Pitt.
He points to one portion of the map and says, “Things are going to be getting warmer in this area here,” only to point to the opposite side and say the same thing. The map seems to depict a world practically on fire, covered in intense sun, storms, and “H”s which symbolize high pressure.
Jefferies then asks, “Do you have any future forecast for us?”
Brad responds with a sarcastic smile, “There is no future.”
“Wonderful,” Jefferies says. Our sentiments exactly.
Check out the whole sketch below:
Brad and Jim aren’t the only ones who have been vocal about their disapproval of Trump’s decision. 187 mayors nationwide have pledged to continue honoring the conditions of the Paris Accord.
We’re glad people are talking about this. We hope that our country will begin taking more of an initiative in confronting climate change.
