Scientists overwhelmingly agree that our climate is changing, Earth is getting warmer, sea levels are rising, and it’s primarily because of humans putting lots of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Whether you already trust in the science, you’re undecided, or you disagree with what all this, this video is for you!


Want to learn about the science of climate change and why humans are causing it, but in layman’s terms? I recommend these books:

Climate Change: Evidence and Causes (National Academy of Sciences/Royal Society) FREE ebook:
Global Weirdness (Climate Central)
How to Change Minds About Our Changing Climate (Seth Darling + Douglas Sisterson)
