This is the new home of all my work on climate change. The main work is this one-hour video presenting climate data:


Climate Curious — this is the one that started everything. 285k views so far.
A Tribute to Hans Rosling — A piece breaking down the temperature record.
Global Warming for Dummies — this is a good document to start with if people would rather read. It has plenty of embedded videos.
An Open Letter to the Heartland Institute — Why I think they are making things worse, not better.
Recent Scientific Work on Climate Change — technical papers, most of whom could not get published by major journals.
Climate Change: Is it Real and Important? — A response defending me from a misguided rebuttal to the first essay, written by some global-warming enthusiasts.
How Climate Change Changes Your Brain — LinkedIn short piece describing my experience after publishing the essay.

Individual Chapters from the Big Video — for people doing research, the chapters are available separately. They are a bit less edited than in the big video.
