Climate Videos

A Climate Video is Worth a Thousand Words!  

Following are a variety of climate related videos that have been made available by their creators to be used to help raise awareness about the causes and solutions to global warming, as well as about the importance of taking action now to reverse climate change.  Acknowledgment to the creators would be appropriate for events and other purposes.

A short video can enhance a variety of events, to engage an audience at a presentation or to open or warm up a meeting. We’d love to hear how they have been used, and any feedback, as well as other videos recommended for sharing.  Send to:

Also, if you are putting on a public climate event, we’d be happy to help publicize it on the Climate Action Calendar.  Whether for your own or a group’s use, enjoy and learn from these informative videos!

Jimmy Kimmel and Climate Scientists:  Jimmy takes a moment to talk about climate change and the confusing political argument that has emerged around it. NASA says that 97 percent of climate scientists agree that the warming we are experiencing is very likely due to human activity – but some politicians still want us to believe it’s all a hoax. So we enlisted the help of real climate scientists to clear some things up for us 

The Thin Green Line   This two minute video from the Sightline Institute provides a graphic depiction of how transport of coal through ports in the Pacific Northwest will risk five times the carbon emissions of the Keystone XL pipeline.

 UW 2015 Climate Change Video Finalists  produced 10 fine videos about climate change.  Following are two, but if you or your group has an interest in using any of these videos for outreach events on global warming, contact the students directly or email us at for assistance.
