130 Years in 30 seconds

The changes displayed in this video represent average global surface temperatures warming by about 0.8ºC over a period of 130 years. On our current path (including current national and regional agreements to reduce emissions), we are heading towards something like five times that change in the next 90 years.

It doesn't have to be this way.

Kevin Anderson: Going beyond dangerous climate change. This guy is one of the most senior climate researchers in the UK. In this hour-long presentation, he lays out just how dire our situation is, how dangerous 2ºC is, how impossible it is for us to stay below 2ºC and how the much more likely 4ºC is incompatible with organised global society.
