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)

It’s a six part series that you can easily find by googling “climate change, lines of evidence”, or going here.

The “Solar Influence” edition is above.

Below, see the “Greenhouse Gases” explanation.

    Strident, blunt, truthful, whatever. 😉

    I’ve often thought Peter’s videos were too short, but I now realize that they may be too long for the stereotypical “everyman”.

    Take a look, share these, spread the facts!

    Watch these videos, there is no more denying that climate change has been influenced by human behavior…
