A short, powerful primer on climate change

Wake Up, Freak Out - then Get a Grip from Leo Murray on Vimeo.

Art and science can be a powerful combination. This short, powerful video is a case in point.

Although parts are very disturbing, I would encourage teachers to show it in their classrooms. As the title suggests, the first order of business is waking up as many people as possible and confronting them with the problem. For many that will lead to a "freak out". Then, after helping them get a grip, follow up with discussions around our options for addressing this serious problem. There are many ways to bring the discussion down to the local level so as to empower individuals, families and communities to take meaningful action.
