The consequences of climate change

The science journalist, Peter Hadfield (aka Potholer), has a great new youtube video about the consequences of climate change (in our lifetimes). I have to give credit to Moth from New Anthropocene for bringing it to my attention. This to me is good science communication: it’s simple, clear and interesting.

 

Here’s a quote from the very end which strikes a chord for me:

I’m not alarmed by a problem that our intelligence will allow us to mitigate; I’m alarmed at our ignorance and gullibility that leads us to wilfully ignore it.
