Facts and Information about the Climate Crisis (VIDEOS)

VIDEO:  This 15-minute video is powerfully informative and easy to understand.  It is a great introduction to the topic.  http://grist.org/climate-change/climate-change-is-simple-we-do-something-or-were-screwed/

The Post Carbon Institute is a great resource on the climate crisis and related issues.  New videos exist.  Two videos (“300 Years of Fossil Fuels in 300 Seconds” and “Who Killed Economic Growth?” are just a few minutes long, but they are powerful, informative and entertaining.  Another one (“You Are Here:  The Oil Journey”) lasts about 30 minutes.  You can watch them online or buy a DVD containing all three.  See www.postcarbon.org/featured-videos

FUNNY SHORT VIDEO:  What if weather reporters were actually concerned about climate change?  A funny new video shows what it might look like if a weathercaster actually did report the reality of climate change and extreme weather.  The weathercaster in the video completely freaks out.  Enjoy the funny video at this link:  Click here to watch the video
