Climate change (according to a kid)

Don’t get climate change? Watch an animation explaining the phenomenon as a 12-year-old would

About the author



  • Im a kid and to me cimate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather
    patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time (i.e.,
    decades to millions of years). Climate change may refer to a change in
    average weather conditions, or in the time variation of weather around
    longer-term average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions. Certain human activities have also been identified as significant causes of recent climate change, often referred to as global warming.[1]
    Scientists actively work to understand past and future climate by using observations
    and theoretical models. A climate record—extending deep into the
    Earth's past—has been assembled, and continues to be built up, based on
    geological evidence from borehole temperature profiles, cores removed from deep accumulations of ice, floral and faunal records, glacial and periglacial
    processes, stable-isotope and other analyses of sediment layers, and
    records of past sea levels. More recent data are provided by the
    instrumental record. General circulation models, based on the physical sciences,
    are often used in theoretical approaches to match past climate data,
    make future projections, and link causes and effects in climate change.

  • This is from a Kid; but  it is the same as said by an adult, and even by a Professor. I wonder if this 'Kid' can do a clip on quantum mechanics, and contain all the knowledge? Climate talk doesn't change, it is like scripture (it is scripture that's why) and that is why I am sceptical. It is not complex, or difficult and there is consensus: that is not typical of other problems addressed in science; so it is not science, it is dogma, verging on religion.  I have done my own research, there is nobody doing research on CO2 directly – unlike viruses, asteroids, clouds…etc .

  • Are you open for community contribution? I wanted to translate this video to Polish and show it to kids in my school. If you kindly open this video to this?

  • The propaganda was fine until it reached 55 seconds and everything after that is environmentalism hogwash. A theory of man made global warming which is not science and has been proved wrong time and time again. All (Over 100+) UN climate models have been wrong against observable data. No average warming for 20 years. The poles have as much ice as 30 years ago, the seas have not risen much in 50 years, storms are not getting stronger and are fewer in number, no more droughts than normal, no more floods than normal. CO2 a trace gas is a plant food and is vital to all life on the planet. More CO2 means a greener planet as plants need less water to grow

    Climate Change is a religion based of christian doomsayers from the book of Revelations. ie "Repent the end is nigh"
    Earth has a natural cycle of warming and cooling depending on the heat output of the Sun (Sun spots), precession, solar winds, cloud covering, volcanic activity, The Moons position over the North or Southern hemisphere, Earths gravitational and magnetic forces. Which has effected it for 4.5 billion years.
    Earths warming did not change in 1700 because of man, the earth has naturally been warming since 15000 years with a min-ice age 400 years ago. Sea levels have risen 400 feet in that time and all of it natural.
    Finally the Paris Agreement will not attend to any climate change issues. It a social justice method to redistribute wealth from Christian countries (sin tax) and give it to poorer mainly non christian countries. Remember the basis of this religion is all about its man's fault and we must all repent or be doomed. Paris Agreement in a nutshell. However, since when has a sin tax ever altered the climate?

  • Remember kids. (& mums & dads) give the politicians money ( carbon tax ( not that carbon is C0 2)) & it will change the weather?

    YEAH,RIGHT! & when I was a kid, the Moon Buggies had rubber tyres. They are now wire mesh ( so who changes them & why?)
