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.
