• David Roberts, of Grist, used his 18-minute TEDx talk to simplify climate change, responding to people who say they aren’t comfortable arguing about climate change because it’s complicated. According to its website, “Grist is a source of intelligent, irreverent environmental news and commentary that’s been around since 1999, when the internet was made of rubber bands. We cover climate, energy, food, cities, politics, business, green living, and the occasional adorable baby animal.”
• Sen. James Inhofe, who says global warming is "the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people," will take the chairman position in the Environmental and Public Works Committee in January. Environmentalists and climate change believers are concerned that he will change policies that have been put in place to fight global warming.
• Comedian John Oliver, in blunt language, takes on climate change deniers in a video that has more than 4.7 million views. One of his primary points is the way the issue is portrayed in the media with one-on-one debates, when the reality would be more like three climate change deniers vs. 96 climate change believers.
• The title of this animated video says it all: "Global Warming Hoax Explained for Dummies."
