2013 in Videos
December 29, 2013
I finished up the year with a bit of a bang – a piece on the climate denial, tobacco denial, and the anti-science movement – what a surprise to see the same cast of characters 2 decades apart.
This piece went viral after being tweeted by Rainn Wilson, famous as “Dwight” on “The Office” TV series.
The video has now had almost 110,000 views, making it my most popular to date. Still not in the same league as the gerbil playing piano, cute kitties sleeping, or any hot chick.
Pathetic as it is, I’ll take it.
Now just need to figure out how to get a slate of heavy twitter hitters to push these things every time.
Here are some more relevant vids from 2013. Tip to Deniers, always best to check the video playlist before you post some nonsense, because I’ve usually got it covered. This post will get you started, see the playlists on the right side bar.
My interview with Dr. Charles Miller, above, from 2012’s AGU made for one of my favorite, if somewhat unnerving, videos.
There’s much more to say on this topic that will be covered in future vids.
After BBC blocked the original version of this “Weather Whiplash” video, due to content restrictions, I had to do a remake, above. Important info for understanding the new normal.
I also produced a “Pro and Con” piece with input from Dr. Jennifer Francis, and Dr. Kevin Trenberth, commenting on changes in the jet stream. Scientists generally agree that we are in new pattern of atmospheric circulation, but disagree on exactly why.
The interview I did with Dr. Alun Hubbard at Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, featured an ice sheet researcher’s insights.
The Dark Snow Project trip to Greenland changed me as a person, and will always be, I’m sure, a peak experience for those on the team.
I have hours more footage that eventually make its way into videos. So far, only rumors as to any return trip.
One of the year’s big stories was the timely demise of the “17 year pause” in global warming myth.
This video took that one on, just weeks before new research stuck a fork in it. I’ll be updating at some point.
