Thank you so much for that video on Climate Change. This very knowledgeble scienntist states my feelings exactly, one that is in opposition to the majority. If we pay attention to the scientists rather than politicians we will put our dollars into learning to adapt to rather than trying to prevent changes in Earth's climate. One thing I think you should have posted along with this video is the scientists name and credentials. He is Derek Muller holder of a doctorate in physics education research.
