Don’t Be So Complicated, Counteracting Climate Change is Easy

Don’t Be So Complicated, Counteracting Climate Change is Easy

The people of The Climate Reality Project don’t understand why the world leaders make such a fuss of COP21 in Paris. Combating climate change is reasonably straightforward as long as you make the right easy and predictable choices. Therefore they came with the which is a petition campaign.

They website, made by agency Mustache, contains over 20 videos from about 24 seconds (a nod to the “24” motif from TCRP’s annual “24 Hours of Reality” event) and most of them are very funny. Whether you think it’s funny depends on you, a little bit of perspective and self-deprecation is needed. The first two in this post (above and first below) are my favourites. All others are included in the playlists.
