Global Warming 101
National Geographic can always be relied on for taking complex scientific terms such as global warming and explaining them in ways that everyday people can understand without feeling as if they have been spoken down to. This global warming video that they have put together is no different.
Beautifully shot, as you would expect by anything from National Geographic, does a fantastic job of explaining what is meant by global warming. It first tackles what is meant by global warming on a scientific terms by explaining what is happening to the earth when global warming is taking place.
Then it moves on to explore but not pass judgment on the causes of global warming. It addresses the human contribution to global warming without coming down firmly on one side or the other.
Finally, the video shows some simple ways that people can make changes to their everyday lives and their homes to make their contribution to protecting the Earth from further global warming.
