It is just 15 minutes long.
If you already agree with 97% of climate scientists and know that climate change is real, watch this video and share the link as widely as possible.
Don’t know what to do about climate change? A good place to start is with the global organization 350.org and its grass-roots campaign to pressure universities and communities to divest themselves of stock in the giant fossil fuel corporations that are protecting their bottom line by blocking efforts to slow global warming. For more information about this movement, see the recent article on divestment in The Nation and the New York Times article on campus organizing.
