Climate change is simple: We do something or we’re screwed [my TEDx video]

A great article and talk about what climate change is, why it’s happening, and what the temperature changes will mean.
Via Grist and Dr. David Roberts.


Back in April, The Evergreen State College invited me to speak at a TEDx event called “ Hello Climate Change: Rethinking the Unthinkable .” Videos from the event are now online .

My talk was called “Climate change is simple.” I’m proud to say that I used only 17 of my allotted 15 minutes.

I’ve put an annotated version of my slideshow beneath the video, linking to sources and adding thoughts. The only thing I’ll say about the video itself is that I’ve always thought these things would be better with a soundtrack. If anybody out there on the web wants to make a mashup with it, add some good beats, be my guest.

[UPDATE: Hey, someone pumped up the talk with music and visuals, just like I hoped! Go check it out.]

Okay, let’s walk through the slideshow, one or two at a time.
