Bite size climate science: the persuaders

Climate science isn’t rocket science, but it is still complex, and complicated further by the misinformation spread by the Merchants of Doubt and their groupies, as well as those who have been persuaded by their underhand tactics over the years.

The true message of climate science, however, can be fairly simply distilled. So here are four short video clips totalling a smidgeon over six minutes in total. I hope that you’ll watch them, especially if you’re undecided about whether climate change is something to be concerned about — or simply flat out think it isn’t.

… following up the rear at 2:23 there’s Eric Rignot’s climate change elevator pitch, which I reblogged the other day, also courtesy of Climate Denial Crock of the Week, well worth repeating:
