"Listen to Climate Scientists"

I'm fairly confident that all of you have heard (or heard of) Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old climate activist, a phenom, speak about climate change. She is informed, compelling, articulate and serious.

I hope you will listen to her again.

This short talk (~3 minutes) includes personal comments in addition to her typically insightful comments about the importance of climate change to the global communities of plants and other animals.  It is also an introduction  to the following.

As you know, Thunberg has been both celebrated ("Go girl.") and criticized ("Just an excuse for missing school.") by politicians. Climate scientists are insofar as I know uniform in their response: "Thank you among many others," e.g., Michael Mann, Katherine Kahoe and others.
