"Extrapolations," an upcoming anthology series about climate change, is coming to Apple TV+, reports Variety. The series was created by Scott Z. Burns, who is writing, directing, and executive producing.


The show will tell "intimate, unanticipated stories" about how changes to the planet will affect "love, faith, work, and family on a personal and human scale." The series will feature 10 interconnected episodes.
"Most of the storytelling around climate change has focused on the science and getting people to accept it," said Burns. "Our aim with 'Extrapolations' is to move beyond science and use drama, comedy, mystery and every other genre to allow us to consider how every aspect of our world is going to be changing in the years ahead. We know the climate is going to change - 'Extrapolations' asks, can we change, too?"
Burns' prior work includes climate change documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," and "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power." He has also worked on movies that include "Contagion," "Side Effects," and "The Laundromat."

Just what I wanted, ANOTHER documentary series. Proving again Apple TV+ doesn't need good genre TV series or movies to work. Besides they make enough off the Apple Pods to keep Apple TV+ afloat forever anyways. /s

BOO!! This is pissing me off Apple. First Hillary, now Climate change? WTF. Take a chill and stop with the political agenda.
Climate change. Political. Oh dear…

Feel so sorry for all the people who have been blinkered into thinking the issue is political instead of way, way more important than any one country’s party’s ideological agenda.

Tiresome leftwing propaganda. How can there be global warming if the Earth isn't a globe? Answer me that, globists. The moon is flat too, that's how we know the Apollo missions were fakes, despite what For All Mankind desperately wants us to believe. You must think we're all idiots.

Make sure the videos are stored on renewable energy servers. ;)
I'm pretty sure all of Apple's data centers are already powered by renewables, or they will be soon.

Edit: yup. "Since 2014, all of Apple’s data centers have been powered by 100 percent renewable energy. And since 2011, all of Apple's renewable energy projects have reduced greenhouse gas emissions (CO2e) by 54 percent from its facilities worldwide and prevented nearly 2.1 million metric tons of CO2e from entering the atmosphere." from
