Lawrence, Kansas has been under siege from nonstop weather extremes.
It's either raining cats and dogs, dumping whole feet of snow, or so blisteringly hot camels are collapsing in the street. No Ultimate Frisbee has been played for weeks. Something must be done!

An enterprising group of college roommates decide to hold weatherman Ted Smith accountable for his inability to bring stability to the weather and replace him with a German Hobo by the name of Gruber Finklestein.
Creating a grass roots political or "Weatherological" movement, the roommates resort to traditional and social media to get their message across to the powers-that-be. The media powers-that-be are listening and hope to exploit the energy of the movement to increase their ratings. A debate is held, TV appearances, and an election with the roommates resorting to technologyto cheat whenever possible.

After Ted Smith looses the Weatherman Election and is replaced by Gruber Finklestein, to the astonishment of everyone, the weather extremes continue
unabated.

The CEO of Coily industries has taken notice of the "Weatherological" movement.He decides to replace weathermen who report honestly about the weather extremes with ones that take direction from him, and discredit anyone who publicly doubts the official industry line. The result is that no one is aware the fossil fuel industry is ultimately responsible for the climate problem.

With industry simultaneously pumping huge amounts of pollutants into the atmosphere and cash into the media, the climate problem spirals out of control.

The world blows up, sending the roommates to Hell for their role in the fiasco.
