"I need your support," he told entertainment industry insiders during a daylong forum Tuesday that focused on recent heat waves, floods, fires and drought, which scientists link to human-induced climate change.

....about 400 writers, directors, producers, agents and network executives attended the outreach events.

....To coordinate with Hollywood, the U.N. has set up an office, the "Creative Community Outreach Initiative" in partnership with the United Nations Foundation, funded by media mogul Ted Turner.

....Also on panels were Indian economist Rajendra Pachauri —chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the group of some 2,500 scientists who won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for assessing the effects of greenhouse gases —

Hollywood will just make a pro-climate change propaganda movie. Michael Moore will probably do it.

If only the United Nations controlled all mass communication, the world would be a perfect place.

Larry King was hosting many of the climate panels. Walt Disney VP attended , probably targeting children programs.

What a marriage! The UN should also tie it into the porn industry — get it on to save the planet! It would be funny if the guy gave a talk to the porn industry executives saying that the UN will push for the legitimacy of child sex in return for raising the consciousness about global warming. But the porn industry is run by the mafia who have some principles about kids and they beat the crap out of him.

I’m sure they will try to reach the children. That’s the only way they can continue this expensive farce.

They held these meetings during Oscar week. What irony, it will be one of the coldest evenings on the Red Carpet in years.

Oh wonderful! More Orwellian brainwashing from Hollywood.

Most idiots in our society get their impressions of history from biased Hollywood propaganda movies.

It’s hopeless.

"U.N. leader asks Hollywood for help in fight against global climate change"

Well, at least maybe Nicholas Cage will earn some money to payback the IRS as he signs on for the probably soon-to-be resuscitated "The Day After Tomorrow" movie sequels numbers 2 - Infinity....

When the Egypt was in melt down. Our UN ambassador was out doing promotional appearances about how important the UN is. They are concerned about talks in the house of defunding the UN.
