Despite my perhaps a little too-ardent-seeming delivery here, I don't mean to be understood as meaning that I am convinced that the Earth is in no danger at all from climate change of any sort. Just as Wondering Mind 42 seems to have moderated his tone from the rather smug and badly flawed (I made a video criticising it) "The Most terrifying Video You'll Ever See" (how's that for an over-stated title?) , What I am doing here is something far more moderate and perfectly scientific: demanding evidence. Wondering Mind's principle argument is that august bodies have endorsed the notion that Mankind's increase in CO2 emissions is causing global warming, and I can't help but feel that if they had good scientific (as opposed to PR or political) reasons for doing so, then they would have presented some evidence for the all-important link.
I have made other videos on this topic, and will probably make more. I call them 'rants' in a self-mocking British way, which perhaps some foreigners will find confusing.
