'Sharknado 2' tackles climate change on and off screen

The director and some cast members of "Sharknado 2: The Second One" appeared on stage in a Pasadena hotel on Tuesday to preview the upcoming airborne shark sequel and touched on a very serious topic: climate change.

Whoever could have predicted that Ian Ziering taking on flying sharks with a chain saw would give Al Gore a run for his cinematic money?

Costar Judah Friedlander, the guy who always wore trucker caps on "30 Rock," plays a childhood friend of Ziering's character and proclaimed the film about a weather phenomenon involving flying sharks "the most important ever made about climate change."
