    the answer to the last question (~why are humans so stupid?” is that when people are faced with tremendously bad news, or danger, they shut down and become inactive. that response has saved us from a lot of things in the past (running away or hiding is safer than fighting most of the time). but with global warming, it is not the way to go. we can stop many of the outcomes that are depicted in this video, but we must start soon.

    this video did a great job explaining what is going on, but a new one needs to be made with an opener explaining that the info about to be imparted does NOT have to occur, but it is important for americans (especially) to begin to thwart it NOW, or it will.

    then, maybe at the video’s end, tell viewers to pressure congress to pass H.R.3242, which would end subsidies to fossil fuel corporations, and put a tax on carbon, with 100% of that money returned to all americans. that way, those using few fossil fuels could actually benefit financially, while those burning excessive carbon would feel it financially, and be motivated to figure out how to use less.

    Brilliant! (though I’m not sure how it would affect someone who wasn’t already convinced)
