Climate Change

I like the NYT videos. They are pithy and often cover things that the written word doesn't convey very well. But more interestingly, often the reporter's tone is also quite different from their tone in articles. Look at this video about climate change. For some reason, this simple but stark statement of the current situation doesn't usually come through in the newspaper articles.

Attention, or lack thereof, on climate change and space exploration indicates some deep flaws in our political institutions. They are invariably focused on short-term problems and can not quite grasp the importance of a challenge whose full impact will be felt only by our grandchildren. Also, they are completely unable to handle situations that require real international cooperation.
