Climaticide Video Festival

Welcome to the Climaticide Chronicles first (insert your preferred unit of periodicity [centennial, annual, monthly, etc.] here since I don’t know when, if ever, I’ll do this again) video festival.

You may be familiar with many of the following videos, but I hope you’ll find a couple of new ones that you like. I looked at a lot of different ones in compiling this diary and was surprised to learn how much chaff there is out there, and how little wheat.

I realize that there are a lot of Greenpeace videos in here, but there’s a good reason for that–Greenpeace makes more clever, hard-hitting videos than any other environmental group.

If you have a favorite eco-video of your own, please share it in the comments section.

  1. What a wonderful collection…

    Skewed view of Science – 10 min YouTube video is a great talk about what is science and what is bunk.
    Not global warming per se… but all science

    Great for denialist doubter skeptics.

    • Skewed View of Science. Now, I didn’t know about this one. I’ll be sure to check it out. Thanks!

  2. History of the American Denial of Global Warming

    presentation by Prof. Naomi Oreskes

    Wonderful history of the funded skepticism PR campaign

    • Hi Richard, I have the Oreskes video on the site’s video page. It is a wonderful video. The only reason I didn’t include it is because it is long and I was trying to stick to shorter videos. For anyone who hasn’t watched it, it is must viewing.

  3. Just saw this superb video animation

  4. Great video, Richard. Unfortunately, I can’t embed it here on the video page.
