Climate scientist William D’Andrea of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory asked young scientists attending a symposium last October, “What do you wish everyone knew about climate change?” He turned the responses into this video, which covers the topic pretty well.
The views of these young scientists are compelling, and reflect the kind of concern voiced by many people and organizations leading up to Climate Week Sept. 21-28. World leaders will focus on those concerns at a UN Climate Summit Sept. 23. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called the summit to encourage governments and private organizations to take steps now to create and implement solutions addressing global climate change. Advocates hope the gathering will set the stage for a broader international climate agreement to be negotiated in Paris in December 2015.
