    The program has been in place since 2012 and has educated more than 500 meteorologists about global warming, according to NBC News.

    NBC News noted that the program is working:

    So far, the efforts have paid off. The number of stories on global warming by television weather people has increased 15-fold over five years, according to data from the Center for Climate Change Communication at George Mason University. If the trend continues this year, there will be more than a thousand stories that touch on climate delivered during local TV weathercasts, up from just 55 such climate stories in 2012.
