A colleague of mine at Global Action Plan recently sent me this link to a video by David Mitchell about climate change. It’s a useful counterbalance to a lot of the unhelpful stuff that’s published about the subject. I’d never thought about comparing climate change to asking children to tidy their room. If you don’t mind two (minor) swear words, then have a look…
Also in the news about climate change the Science Museum in London has opened its new ‘atmosphere’ gallery which covers the consensus and questions about climate science. In their own words,
“More than a hands-on gallery, atmosphere reveals some of the key instruments used by today’s scientists, reports on some of the latest climate news, and gives you the chance to dig deeper into the story of our changing climate.”
The gallery gives a feel for the current status of science in a way that people can interact with. Its target audience includes those who are not up to speed with the current scientific consensus on the climate, which probably includes most of us.
Finally on climate change, you can also read Global Action Plan’s CEO Trewin Restorick’s view of “Sustainable marmalade, Cancun and the jilted generation”.
