Climate Change Is Simple: We Are Completely Screwed If We Don’t Do Something Fast

June 27th, 2012 by  

David Roberts of Grist gave a good TEDx talk recently. Along with a video of this speech and much commentary in text to go along with it (all worth your time), he recently posted his slides for the speech — the slides are great, so I’m reposting them here very quickly, followed by the video:

For anyone who follows climate science, none of this is new, but it’s very well summarized and presented here. For anyone who doesn’t follow the science, believe us, this is the case… or look into it yourself. Skeptical Science’s The Big Picture is a great place to start.

If you want to read more from David on this, check out his full piece: Climate change is simple: We do something or we’re screwed [my TEDx video].

This is why I’m in the job I’m in.
