Balog’s oral presentation is hands down the most cogent and concise (considering the gravity of the subject) that I have heard. His synopsis of the effect of atmospheric CO2 glut, coupled with the disconcerting images of ice retreat around the globe, is stunning.

He’s right: everyone should see and hear this message. And soon.
