Totally awesome history of climate modeling by Steve Easterbrook, University of Utah

Professor Steve Easterbrook of the University of Utah produced a totally awesome history of climate modeling at Prezi. This takes the viewer through the history of climate models, seeing its roots in the 19th century, and showing how the United States government has been warned since 1979 that this could be a major problem. Their reluctance to pay attention to the problem was, apparently, a combination of “We have more important things to do right now” and, eventually, outright dissuasion by parties who would suffer financially by the U.S. government doing something about the problem. Professor Easterbrook does not make the latter political points. But his history does not exist in a vacuum. With such science being presented to people, political hypotheses need to be advanced to answer the obvious question of Why No One Listened.
