Thanks to David Bressan over at the “History of Geology” blog, I have recently discovered the amazing YouTube Channel of Peter Hadfield, who has a degree in geology and who is a science journalist. Hadfield’s YouTube channel has become quite popular for his videos explaining climate change, as Hadfield explains in this Guardian blog post. I commend Hadfield for his work explaining climate change to the general public. This is important because while 97 out of 100 climate experts think humans are causing global warming, I don’t think anywhere near 97 out of 100 average US citizens think humans are causing global warming… or even think that global warming is happening at all.
I highly recommend that you check out Hadfield’s YouTube channel and the climate change videos. Today, however, I wanted to post Hadfield’s latest video about earthquakes and end-of-the-world nonsense. This video explains some science and has some snarky humour. I know I laughed hysterically when the proper British guy was making fun of the hick Americans. Maybe that makes me a bad person, but I laughed anyway. Enjoy!
