He tweeted on Friday ‘no children, happy to go extinct’

The weatherman also said he is committed to stop flying as ‘it’s not worth the climate’

‘I just broke down in tears in boarding area at SFO while on phone with my wife. I’ve never cried because of a science report before. #IPCC,’ was his first tweet on around 2pm on Friday.

‘I realised just now: This has to be the last flight I ever take. I’m committing right now to stop flying. It’s not worth the climate,’ he tweeted a few minutes late.
