UN 'weather kids' call for action against climate change

The United Nations Development Programme released a video on Thursday that features five "weather kids" in a global campaign for action to address climate change.

The children present a weather forecast for 2050 to show what the world would be like without adequate countermeasures to combat climate change. The simulation is based on data from UN reports and other sources. They speak in English, French and Spanish.

One of the weather kids says, "Heatwaves will affect 94 percent of children, making playing outside a thing of the past."

She also says, "Extreme droughts will wipe out wheat crops, killing the one food my brother eats -- bread," suggesting that abnormal weather associated with climate change may have a serious impact on people's lives.

The video ends with the children saying, "It's not just a weather report to us. It's our future," followed by a superimposed message, "There's still time to change the forecast."
