    A step by step look at climate change by increase of average temperature.

    The video has a little too much "Hollywood" built in but there are enough scenes that seem very plausible. This follows the book somewhat and at times gives a real feel of the chapters descriptions of incremental temperature rise. We used this in class to get some discussion going about climate change and it did a good job of initiating a gambit of opinions about the validitaty of warming.I continue to be dumbfounded in regards to the amount of distrust we have for one another.

    Essential viewing

    This is one of the best dvd sources on climate change information I have found. It is current, supported by some of the most qualified experts of our day, and I have referred to it often both for my own understanding and as an aid to help others undertand how our climate system works and what we all need to do to protect it. I have given several copies as gifts and highly recommend Mark Lynas' book, "Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet," as important supporting material. This is the dvd to have right now!
