With a team from Texas Tech Public Media, I want to start a web series looking at this whole climate change thing and what it means to us; and with the big new Paris Agreement in place, and the rapid shifts in public opinion we’re seeing across the United States, it’s an important time to do so.
In this series, we’re going to tackle all the climate change issues you’ve heard, head-on. How do we know this thing is even real? Why do scientists say it’s humans, and not natural cycles like it’s been every other time? Is climate change causing the crazy weather we see today? Does fixing climate mean we have to shut down the economy? Why are the Pope and the National Association of Evangelicals piling on? And why do we climate scientists get so much hate mail? Money and politics, God and global warming, every topic we avoid in polite conversation—we’re going there.
We are looking to raise $20,000 to produce a web series of ten short videos, and we want to do it right. Working with my local PBS station, we’ll be using professional animators and top of the line equipment. We want to get people talking about one of the most important issue the world is facing today.
We’re already at 10% and we’re looking to reach 20% soon. Listed on our Indiegogo page are a ton of cool perks for donating to the series, ranging from a speaking engagement to reusable water bottles. If you’re ready, if you want to be a part of this, you can help us make this series a reality.
We understand that not everyone can contribute, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help. Feel free to get the word out, instead – that is just as helpful!
