NOVA: Decoding the Weather Machine Disastrous hurricanes. Widespread droughts and wildfires. Pervasive heat. And extreme rainfall. It is hard not to conclude that something's up with the weather. And many scientists agree this trend in our weather is not just a coincidence. It's the result of the weather machine itself - our climate - changing, becoming hotter, more erratic. Climate change is arguably the defining challenge of our time, yet widespread misunderstanding and misinformation has hampered the public's ability to understand the science and address the issue. NOVA will cut through the confusion and help define the way forward. Why do scientists overwhelmingly agree that our climate is changing, and that human activity is causing it? How will it affect us through the weather we experience, and when? And what will it take to bend the trajectory of planetary warming toward more benign outcomes? Join scientists around the globe on a quest to better understand the workings of the weather and climate machine we call Earth, and discover how they are finding that we can be resilient - even thrive - in the face of enormous change.

Bravo NOVA! In the tradition of Al Gores Inconvenient Truth and his recent sequel, PBS has packed into the length of a common feature film everything a responsible parent would need to know about the truth of climate science, the real threats facing their children and grandchildren, the genuine opportunities we have to mitigate the harm to our loved ones, and a well framed challenge for us to rise to the occasion and prove that, as Al Gore once said, political will is indeed our most valuable renewable resource.

I confess to being only moderately interested in climate change until this vid. I was not aware of much of the info presented. I know some serious deniers. Probably wont change their minds, but should make em think a bit.

This convinced me

I have been a climate change doubter for years. The reasons for this are many, but primarily it was because of the scare tactics used and how it felt like the government was just trying to raise our taxes (ie, look at how British Columbia has spent its carbon tax proceeds for example). This documentary changed my opinion. I thought it was expertly and fairly put together. Positions are backed up with science facts and it tells both sides of the climate story. I especially liked the end where a number of possible solutions were put forward. Well done.

EXCELLENT Science Reporting on the Climate Change
Review by Solarnrgman on 07/17/20 review stating EXCELLENT Science Reporting on the Climate Change
This was one of the most persuasive sets of scientific reporting on the correlation reality between climate changes and weather that I have seen. Beautifully presented, crystal clear descriptions of the basic scientific research and evidence that irrefutably confirms the correlation between the increased use of fossil fuels over the past two hundred years and the impact on the climate and weather today. SUPURB. THANK YOU NOVA AND PBS FOR THIS EXCEPTIONAL DOCUMENTARY ON THE SCIENCE OF CLIMATE CHANGE AS IT RELATES TO THE EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS THAT ARE HAPPENING ON EARTH NOW.
