How It All Ends...

or, Applying Risk Management Theory to Global Climate Change.



You may have been forwarded one of this guy's (wonderingmind42) videos already. According to his profile on YouTube.com he's a high school science teacher. If you have not seen the video above you should watch it now.

Essentially, he's applied risk management theory to the global climate change debate. In this video he details a way to look at the issue that doesn't require you to choose a side (who's right or wrong, does it exist or doesn't it, etc.) but still makes it possible to decide with confidence what should be done about it. His arguments are undeniable.

If one video isn't enough for you he's got an entire “Expansion Pack” of videos supporting the original video, “How It All Ends.” For your convenience I've created an easy link list to the index of all his videos. Take some time and watch them (I'm still getting through all of them myself.). At the very least watch the "How It All Ends" video above, then pass it on.

I'm working my way through all the videos. I think they are great, but I doubt anyone who doesn't believe would actually watch them. If you're still touting the argument that we don't need to do anything because we aren't causing climate change, well then at this point nothing will change your mind.
