Science Girl; Starbucks and tax; NYC carbon; adaptation in America: videos I liked

dismal dialogues in Doha) and tax evasion. First the totally adorable Science Girl on climate change, clean energy + a surprise upside – wildfires melt Barbie & Ken before your very eyes Next up, a sweet and funny Starbucks tax sting – two Welsh Activists decide it should return its 28% tax dodge to its customers. Background here If greenhouse gases were visible, would it be easier to persuade publics and politicians to take them seriously? This smart video from New York City suggests the answer is yes. [h/t John Magrath] Finally, climate change adaptation in America. Vicki Arroyo from the Georgetown Climate Center in a rather disturbing TED talk. Makes you wonder if some kind of climate survivalism is on the way ]]>

    Thanks for all these. But re. the TED video though – climate survivalism? I think that gives the wrong impression. I liked her saying, and giving examples, that this is “not just to survive but to thrive” (nicve example of Oxfam America’s insurance scheme for farmers in Ethiopia); and it was quite uplifting (sometimes, literally!) to see her examples of climate change “resilient” architecture, planning, design etc that are a mix of common sense and ingenuity.

    Did you perhaps mean if greenhouse gases were visible? It’s a great video for showing what that many tons of greenhouse gases would like like if we could see them. I can’t remember off-hand which organization produced it, but there is also an incredible computer simulation of a 21st century “waterfall”, that shows how much volume/space 800 empty, plastic water bottles that are not recycled take up.
