Arctic Ocean Blowtorch Attacks Sea-Ice // Published on Jan 24, 2016
Our climate system has destabilized. Our fossil-fueled emissions have changed the chemistry of our atmosphere and our oceans, changing the heat balance between the equator and Arctic. This has fractured the jet streams, and brings us closer to a new planet with zero snow and ice in the Arctic. Here is what is happening…
Climate System Emergency 1/2 (Beckwith@Carter) // Published on Jan 24, 2016
My colleague in AMEG (Arctic Methane Emergency Group) Peter Carter, has generated numerous slides recently, which deserve widespread exposure to the Public. In this 2 part video series, I present this data which clearly show we are in a full-scale abrupt climate change emergency.

Dr Saleem Huq, an IPCC author talks at a COP21 Paris media event about the incredible dangers to society of exceeding 1.5 degrees C
Climate Science in 3D on a Sphere // Published on Jan 12, 2016
I filmed this 2 part video at the US Booth at COP21 in Paris. NOAA invented some nifty technology to project Earth Science information onto the surface of a sphere. A great presentation; this is Part 1/2.

Climate YODA James Hansen Gold Q&A in Paris // Published on Jan 12, 2016
At COP21 in Paris on December 2nd, 2015 I filmed legendary climate change GURU James Hansen answering questions on the climate system, his recent presentations and papers, a global carbon fee-and-dividend to slash fossil fuel emissions, and other topics. Great information from this highly respected
Sir David King on severe climate change threats //Published on Jan 11, 2016
I filmed this very important talk at COP21 in Paris on December 5, 2015. The chief scientific advisor to the British government, Sir David King discusses the extremely rapid Arctic warming and the immediate threats this poses to you and I and our kids.
“Joie de vivre” on a Paris Train //Published on Jan 10, 2016
A typical “joy of life” scene on a Paris train heading to my hostel on my COP21 adventure. This happens everywhere you go in the “City of Lights” aka “City of Love”..

Earth Climate System Science at COP21 // Published on Jan 11, 2016
I filmed this presentation at the US booth at COP21 in Paris. It is a “hyperwall” presentation on the rapid changes occurring in the oceans, cryosphere and atmosphere.
Urban “Tree” Power Generation // Published on Jan 10, 2016
I filmed this video while waiting for a bus to leave the COP21 conference late one night in Paris. The slight breeze was sufficient to spin the many VAWT (vertical axis wind turbines) on these two artificial trees. I want one of these trees on my roof in Ottawa!!
Ex-Archbishop of Canterbury on climate dangers // Published on Jan 10, 2016
Rowan Williams was the Archbishop of Canterbury who married Prince William and Kate Middleton in the UK, and he presided over 85 million Anglicans. Just prior to this COP21 Paris press conference I updated him over snacks on the latest science of Arctic temperature amplification from sea ice and snow cover collapse, jet stream changes causing extreme weather whiplashing and the enormous methane release risks.

Spookiness at Oslo Airport // Published on Jan 10, 2016
After my Paris COP21 adventure I was in Norway for a week, and to catch a morning flight I decided on an all-nighter at the Oslo Airport. As I walked around the airport I saw this circle marked out on the floor. Being a curious science and engineering geek, I stood in the middle of the circle. What happened next, is amazing and captured on film. Make sure you have the audio on, or you will not think anything happened:)
Climate Change System Rehash in Toronto // Published on Jan 10, 2016
I was in Toronto last Boxing Day (December 26th) to see a pantomime and to discuss the COP21 Paris pantomime. I talk about my 2015 year-end thoughts on the climate system in this friendly chat in the dead-centre of Nathan Phillips square in the heart of Toronto, Canada. Analogous to the climate, the video ended abruptly when my phone battery died:(
And I added a new tab or section today, Videos OF Others–which I filmed.
