Pop sensation Katy Perry and the UNICEF organization released a 60 second video impersonating a weather man to discuss the ongoing effects of climate change across the globe, according to The Huffington Post.  The video, released December 7th, is a part of UNICEF’s #FightUnfair campaign and arrives in conjunction with the COP21 conference in Paris, where more than 190 nations discuss a potential global agreement quell potential climate change issues.

The video portrays Perry as a weatherwoman discussing the devastating impacts climate change has already done to the planet. “As a California girl,” Perry quips, “I’m not the only one experiencing drought.”

The singer goes on to recite the facts regarding the increase in cyclone patterns in the Philippines, the flooding in Bangladesh, and the increase in malaria cases in East Africa, a disease which already kills 800 children every day.

The statistics used in the short video are based on a reported released in November by UNICEF, where millions of children across the world are affected by the increase of severe weather.

“And the forecast is,” Perry said. “Conditions will worsen.”

In a statement that accompanied the video, Perry stressed the impact climate change has on children, according to Breitbart. “The worst part about this is that some of the youngest and most vulnerable citizens of our world are bearing the most unfair burden of climate change. Let’s encourage the world leaders to take this issue seriously… Together we can help change the forecast for millions of children.”

This is not the first time Katy Perry has used her noteriety  in politics. Perry has been advocate for Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid, headlining an October rally in Des Moines and even offering to write a song for Clinton’s campaign.

In 2013, UNICEF appointed Perry as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Since then, the singer visited Madagascar and attending various UNICEF sponsored programs at the Ilaiko Child Protection Centre.
