Are you confused by the debate about climate change? Wonder why, with widespread scientific agreement saying human caused climate change is a serious danger, the political sphere claims there's a lot of doubt? Want some guidelines on "how" to make decisions about climate change NOW, rather than waiting 30+ years until climate change effects are more apparent and it is too late to make meaningful change?

In October 2007 a high school science teacher released a series of videos asking us to think clearly about climate change. The videos offer a risk management based logic framework with which we can think about hypothetical dangers while having limited information. Making good decisions about climate change means assessing hypothetical risks, with limited information, about a process that takes decades to unfold, while facing climate change denialism seemingly pushed by business interests with a vested interest in undermining efforts to change, and want to preserve business as usual.

There were 49 videos in the series, including a set of four videos from 2008 that refined some of the messages. He also posted Dr. Al Bartlett's ground-breaking lecture titled Arithmetic, Population and Energy. All the videos have been embedded on this website for ease of navigation.

How It All Ends

This is the main video in the series and itself is the sequel to an earlier video by the same guy named "The Most Terrifying Video You'll Ever See". The two of them have been viewed over 14 million times. After the videos got a lot of attention, they fostered a book What's the Worst That Could Happen?: A Rational Response to the Climate Change Debate

You can download a 25 page preview of the book from the authors website.
