Meryl Streep to head cast of Apple TV+ ‘Extrapolations’ climate change anthology

Apple TV+ has lined up a star-studded cast, including Meryl Streep and David Schwimmer, for a climate change anthology series called Extrapolations.

Apple TV+

Rick Porter for The Hollywood Reporter:

Meryl Streep, Kit Harington and Matthew Rhys will head the ensemble for Extrapolations, an eight-episode drama from writer Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, The Report) and The Morning Show production company Media Res. The cast also includes Sienna Miller, Gemma Chan, Tahar Rahim, Daveed Diggs, David Schwimmer and Adarsh Gourav, with additional actors to be announced.

Extrapolations, which is currently in production, will tell interconnected stories about how the upcoming changes to the planet will affect love, faith work and family.

“The only thing we know for sure about the future is that we are all going there together — and we’re taking with us our hopes, our fears, our appetites, our creativity, our capacity for love and our predilection to cause pain,” said Burns. “These are the same tools that storytellers have been using since the beginning of time. Our show is just using them to keep time from running out.”

MacDailyNews Take: Ouch, the eye roll Burns induced there was so big it hurt!

We very much look forward to Extrapolations‘ concerted, star-studded effort “to keep time from running out.”

May its noble endeavor of course succeed, if, for nothing else, the sake of clockmakers and timekeepers across the universe.

    1. Tim Cook etc. do have an uncanny ability to provoke nausea.

      Leftists, Democrats, and Establishment Globalists have turned their backs on religion, but the human soul knows there is a greater force and hence searches for God.

      Leftists, Democrats, and Establishment Globalists like Tim Cook, Bill Gates, Laurene Powell Jobs, Jeff Bezos, etc. have substituted “Climate Change” for “God.”

      “Climate Change” is the “God” of Leftists, Democrats, and Establishment Globalists.

      This is why they hated Trump so much.

      Not for the “mean tweets,” but for canceling the Paris Agreement, an international treaty, immediately upon assuming office. It was among the very first travesties into which their installed puppet Biden re-entered – illegally, of course (treaties like this actually require congressional approval in America).

      With “Climate Change” as their “God,” it’s no leap to imagine that a few short years from now, when people start dropping like flies (perhaps from mutated super variants of COVID created by widespread global vaccination schemes), the Leftists, Democrats, and Establishment Globalists will of course claim “there is no evidence that these deaths were caused by the vaccines” (they won’t mention the deaths were caused by what the vaccines created). They may even prop up and trot out their bureaucrat idol Fauci to nod for the cameras, if he lasts long enough.

      This is why throwing open the U.S. southern border to unvaccinated COVID-infected illegal aliens and shipping them around the country is A-OK, but actual citizens need to double mask while alone in their homes and present their vaccination “papers” to go anywhere. They want the Democrat votes and don’t really care about COVID spreading or the peasants’ freedom.

      Wine glasses will be clinking, cigars will be lit, and the globalists will be congratulating each other on such a successful global depopulation campaign – all done in the name of their “God,” “Climate Change.”

      Farfetched? Far stranger things have happened in human history (for those relatively few of us who know and understand history).

  1. The Democrats’ climate change scam

    In the 1970’s various articles, particularly Time Magazine’s June 24, 1974 issue, “Another Ice Age” and Newsweek’s April 28, 1975, “The Cooling World” led Americans to believe the earth was “cooling” and that we may die from frigid ice. However, as the temperatures of the earth goes in cycles and began to warm, a new generation was led to believe in “global warming” through a documentary film by Al Gore called, “Inconvenient Truth.” Inconvenient Truth happened to be a convenient lie to advance the Democrat agenda and deceive the world with false data alleging the earth was warming due to manmade carbon dioxide (CO2). Instead, Al Gore flew on his private jet lecturing Americans and made millions as all the predictions of the polar ice caps melting, Miami disappearing and other predictions were false and never happened.

    While Democrats were trying to deceive Americans (and the world) that anyone who opposed them were “anti-environment” and against the “Saving the Earth” campaign, leaked emails on November 21, 2009 from the Hadley Climate Change Unit revealed data was intentionally falsified to support global warming when, in reality, the earth began to cool again.

    Since “Global Cooling” and “Global Warming” were giving the Democrats head fakes, a new neutral term of “Climate Change” had to be used to advance their socialist agenda, which was supported by news corporations like NBC, who gave favorable coverage to the Democrat agenda since NBC is owned by General Electric and would benefit from the advancement of alternative-energy contracts.

    With Democrats now in control, the “Green New Deal” is their 3 trillion dollar dream to regulate Americans and redistribute American wealth to the world to remove capitalism and American greatness toward world equality. Democrats have proposed another couple trillion in the name of infrastructure, which most has nothing to do with infrastructure. Only 25 percent is designated toward infrastructure while the remaining 75 percent are more Democrat climate change handouts. Biden rejoined the Paris-Climate Accord despite America cutting more CO2 during President Trump’s term than any country in the treaty according to Forbes due to increased natural gas and American independence. While emissions were reduced in America, China and India were higher. As a result of Biden joining the Paris-Climate Accord, the Washington Examiner reported by 2025 America will lose 2.7 million jobs as Biden has already axed thousands of jobs already with Executive Orders to push the Democrat Climate Change scam.

    Gregory Wrightstone, executive director of the CO2 Coalition, which seeks to educate the public about the important contributions carbon dioxide makes to our lives and the economy, stated there is no evidence of “any atmospheric CO2 levels being reduced” and agrees the earth naturally goes through natural cooling and warming cycles.

    Now I am all for clean air, clean water, picking up our trash, and taking care of the earth God has provided us; but this is not the goal of those who support Climate Change. Their goal is advancing the Democrat globalization agenda through worldwide socialism. They believe America is imperialistic and its wealth must be redistributed to other counties. This is why Democrats despise American greatness. At the same time, Democrats and their media lapdogs have set the narrative they are the ones who care about the environment. They believe Americans must give up their own energy resources and jobs and sacrifice their freedoms to save the planet. They believe a global tax and government regulations of what we drive or what we spend on energy is necessary even if Americans need to sacrifice warmth for food and medicine due to coming inflation. They have even floated extreme ideas to remove air travel and exterminate cattle. Nothing is beyond their reach or their desired control.

    While these government elites push a false narrative to have Americans conform to Climate Change, they continue to live their lives in luxury as the “do what I say; but not as I do” Democrats. An example of this is Biden’s Climate czar, John Kerry, who took a private jet to pick up an environmental award, calling it the “only choice for someone like me” while promoting the Democrat Climate Change scam.

    1. “Now I am all for clean air, clean water, picking up our trash, and taking care of the earth God has provided us; but this is not the goal of those who support Climate Change. Their goal is advancing the Democrat globalization agenda through worldwide socialism. ”

      No, we want the planet to stop warming, so our friends who live in Florida won’t have their condos flood, or those who live in mountain towns don’t have their whole town burn down. You know, common sense stuff.

      Climate change (global warming) is real, whether you want to believe in it or not. This is not one of those “natural cycles” the fossil fuel industry wants you to believe. Those natural changes happen over millennia. We’re making it happen in a matter of a couple of decades.

      Sticking your head in the sand won’t help.

      1. Try pulling your head out…and look around at the facts your ‘science’ friends ignore.
        (I put it hat way because anything they believe is ‘science’ but if the facts don’t agree with their politics, then it is ‘Bible-thumping creationist BS’)

        If you’re honestly looking at ALL the DATA available and not just cherry-picking and STILL come to the conclusion man has created this monster, we can talk.

        Until then, you are just a leftist shill.

      2. The freaking planet is NOT warming.
        And the climate IS NOT CHANGING dramatically. Search back decades ago and there were much more dramatic climate events (1930’s through 1950’s, even far back as 1800’s)
        Another brainwashed leftist DOTARD regurgitating the same freaking lies.
        Idiots like you who don’t know even basic meteorology pretend to be know-it-all arrogant fools spreading the lies that sensationalists media and corrupt politicians vomits to control and waste money in BS solutions to cool the planet. YOU ARE A FANATICAL IDIOT.
        Downplaying the fact that this planet has gone through cycles, and ALWAYS ignoring one factor, the factor that CONTROLS our climate: THE SUN, shows your ignorance.
        Funny how the fanatics and climate lie spreaders NEVER mention our SUN.

        “A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth”
        — Joseph Goebbels

  2. Id love to see Meryl Streep’s lifelong carbon footprint for herself and the army of support she has needed for her travel, wardrobe, hair and makeup, rehearsals, location and catering for her 73 films. Anyone who has worked on a film set knows that a big budget movie production can be the most wasteful and resource taxing occupation on planet earth. She properly has a lifetime carbon footprint of a small city. Heck one 18k HMI light requires a generator the size on a truck engine. Bottom line she is a moral hypocrite that has profited off the destruction of the environment making films with no essential value.

    And now her next project is to lecture us on protecting the environment.

    1. I love it when these jet setting celebrities scold me on my lifestyle. Someone like her is responsible for more emissions in a week than I will in a year. They can all bite me.
