Late Night shares the stage with climate change


Seasoned late-night producer and writer Steve Bodow hosted the event to coincide with NYC Climate Week. Kimmel argued that climate change trumps all other important issues.

“The pandemic, systemic racism, income inequality, immigration, gun violence – but here’s the problem. If we don’t tackle climate change, none of these issues will matter. The car falls off a cliff and we play with the radio. – JIMMY KIMMEL

“How could anyone object to trying to solve this problem?” Even if you run an oil company, you and your children and their children will have to continue living in the world. There is no planet B. – JIMMY KIMMEL

“Wildfires, floods, landslides – all of which are amazing things to hear Stevie Nicks sing; not something you want to experience in life. – JIMMY KIMMEL

Seth Meyers and James Corden worked together on a common intro across networks. Meyers called the occasion “a night where we put aside our intense and white-hot rivalries and come together to raise awareness of the vast effects of climate on our lives and the things we can do to help.”

On “Late Night,” Meyers argued that climate change has made everything much stranger.

“Now it’s only normal for friends to show up for dinner at the end of September, like they’ve just run a marathon,” Meyers said. “Very soon, the traditional Thanksgiving feast will be replaced by a backyard barbecue with clothing optional. “It’s too hot for the turkey, so we just make mashed potato smoothies. “

“This is how much climate change is getting worse: wildfires in the west, flooding in the east, freezing cold in Texas. Billy Joel is going to have to write an update for 2021 and call it “Actually, we’ve lit the fire.” – SETH MEYERS

On “The Late Late Show,” Corden told viewers not to worry, “We’re not going to hammer you with scary stories, like the fact that it was the hottest summer on record here at United States, which is true. “

Instead, Corden shared inspiring stories of people doing their part to fight climate change and challenged members of his home group to share their own efforts.

On “Full Frontal”, Samantha Bee highlighted what she called “problem number two”: sewage and the failure of America’s water infrastructure.

“No one wants to think about wastewater, but we all need to support the water infrastructure that supports us. Because waste disposal is vital for society and sanitation is a human right – unless you are at an outdoor music festival, in which case it is only a distant memory . ” – SAMANTHA BEE

Stephen Colbert highlighted the numbers from his “Late Show” monologue, including a recent poll showing that most Americans don’t think they will be personally affected by global warming.

“Americans treat climate science like football: we know it’s out there, and it really matters to the rest of the world, but no one can make us care,” Colbert said, adding: “Can – be that Ted Lasso could do it. “

“But ordinary people are doing something about climate change: they are worried, especially young people. A recent study asked young people aged 16 to 25 around the world what they think about climate change, and 56% of them agreed with the view that humanity is doomed. Nice try, kids, but you don’t get out of your student loans. – STEPHEN COLBERT

In “The Daily Show”, Trevor Noah explored how climate change affects “little unexpected things” – slowing sea turtle reproduction, dampening human libido, and affecting the taste of coffee, wine and beer.

“Lots of weird little effects that, when you add them all together, end up being basically everything,” Noah said.

“You know, my only hope is that this is the news that finally prompts people to take drastic action. Because if anything is to motivate people, it will be the end of sex. ” – TREVOR NOÉ

Jimmy Fallon, for his part, left the Climate Night jokes to the other hosts. Instead, he brought Dr. Jane Goodall to “The Tonight Show,” where she discussed her appeal to people around the world to plant new trees.
