Can You Fix Climate Change?

We feel overwhelmed in the face of rapid climate change. It seems simple on the surface. Greenhouse gases trap energy from the Sun and transfer it to our atmosphere. So why don’t we just like… prevent all of that? Well, it’s complicated.


It’s complicated

Climate change seems easy on the surface, but if you dig deeper it gets incredibly complex and everything is connected. That’s what makes it so hard to tackle climate change because there is no magic bullet solution, humanity has to fix lots of things. But to do that we need to understand climate change.


Understanding Chaos

This video (along with two other videos in the series) gives a consecutive overview of climate change. How did it come to this at all? What areas are impacted and what can we do? And what about the myth that everyone of us has to make their contribution? In an extra long video we explain everything you need to know about climate change.


Digging deep

We conduct thorough research for all our content – in the case of this video, hundreds of hours. Our goal is to give the bigger picture on a topic, not just a snapshot. And if you like to dive in for yourself you can consult the primary sources we used in the sourcesheet we provide with all our videos.
