My wife got Final Cut Express for Christmas, so I decided to do a video project to force myself to learn how to use it. The result is a 2-part, ~22 minute video called “Climate Consensus: A Cautionary Tale”. In this video, I tackled the following questions.
- What does it mean to have a scientific consensus?
- Is there a strong scientific consensus about whether humans are significantly affecting the climate?
- How do people convince themselves to go against the consensus?
(And yes, Die Zauberflotist, Christopher Monckton is prominently featured!)
I have learned through this experience that making a video is WAY harder than just writing. Hats off to people like Peter Sinclair (Climate Denial Crock of the Week) who do it all the time.
Here are both parts of my video, embedded from YouTube.
