Beyond Politics & Economics: Addressing Climate Change Requires More

This 56 minute video is one of the most important I've produced in terms of explaining the relevance and importance of my educational program about complexity sciences. The thesis is represented in the title: political, economic and legal changes are necessary to effectively address climate change, but they are not sufficient. My thesis is that widespread knowledge of both complexity sciences and geophysiology are equally important, especially by those who are seeking political, economic and legal changes.

Your message above cuts to the heart of the situation.  I know there are other people who understand and recognize the importance of what you are saying.  I want to ask each of your former and current students and supporters to make a one time or ongoing donation of $1, $5, $10, $25, $50 or $100 to your Patreon account.   I've signed on as a regular monthly supporter.  I'm supporting something that is important not just to our survival - but to our well-being and (for lack of a better word) our "growing up" as a species!   Go Alder!

Bonnie, thanks so much for your kind words and call for support.  Both mean a lot to me.  (At your request, I corrected your minor typo re Patreon.)  Let's hope this video will help me start earning a real living again while doing good things for people and planet, and get me to Scotland later this year.  :)

I just went over the section again where you present your thesis, and it just confirmed why I support you and your work 100%!  Your presentation was clear, concise and sober and lacking in the hyperbole that tends to turn people off which makes you a much better advocate for what you're trying to explain than someone like Guy MacPherson who always comes across like an arrogant know it all.  Your continual emphasis on uncertainty of the details and the possibility, however fleeting it's becoming, that you may be wrong is exactly what makes people take you seriously.  You don't sugarcoat, but you don't slam it down people's throats either!  Your measured tones and obvious earnestness and passion for the subject matter provide a powerful hook to draw thinking people into your thesis and get them thinking about what you have to say.  At this point, it's probably the best we can hope for, but it can and actually should be the starting point for a real revolution in humanity's thinking about our place in the Universe and how we should strive to behave within its constraints.
