The National Academy: Everyman’s Evidence for Climate Change
October 11, 2012
The holidays are coming. You’ll probably have to sit down again with Aunt Teabag and Uncle Dittohead and explain to them that, yes, it really is warming, and yes, we really are doing it.
And, yes, we can expect more of what we had this summer.
And, of course, that’s what the Climate Crock series is designed to do, end arguments around the minutia of climate denial crocks that Uncle and Auntie would have imbibed from radio or Fox news.
But if you feel the Climate crocks are a little too, uh, strident, and are not the answer for your particular relatives, the National Academy of Science has come to the rescue with a series of complete, well explained, short, (three minutes) authoritative (explain that the NAS was founded by Lincoln) videos that give a good outline of the scientific case as it is understood by the mainstream. (and has been for 50 years)
The “Solar Influence” edition is above.
