Blue Ollie carried a YouTube video that got me to look at Peter Sinclair’s marvelous series of amateur videos, “Climate Denial Crock of the Week.” Sinclair posts under the handle GreenMan at YouTube.
Here’s the Climate Denial Crock of the Week video on ocean levels, and the denial that they are rising — in line with my post a few hours ago about peoples in the South Pacific and in Alaska losing their homes to climate change:
Pat Frank’s work keeps reminding us that, in science, it’s often difficult to establish a clear, indisputable proximate cause. Something is going on in Newtok, Alaska, and in the Carteret Islands, Papua New Guinea. Those things should not be ignored, and cannot be ignored safely for long.
(Teachers: Note most of these videos are around 5 minutes in length — more than suitable for classroom use, perhaps even as a bell ringer. Notice also that, if you don’t know how to make these videos, as I don’t, you’re behind the curve.)
