Vanity Fair: Global Warming hitting Film Industry Hard – ‘How Extreme Weather Is Melting Hollywood’s Winter Shoots’

Eric Holthaus, a meteorologist who works for Slate, says climate change may affect Hollywood in several ways: The frequency of extreme weather makes it harder to predict which areas of the world may have snow, rain, or sunny days during any given month.

Ironically, this means productions may have to resort to the biggest environmental sin of them all—wanton air travel—to find better locations.
