Climate Change Recalc ~ Griffith @ Long Now

Saul Griffith speaks at Long Now Foundation in 2009 on Climate Change Recalculated... He shows lots of personal, national, and global data and makes strong assertions about what humanity ought to do. One little delighter comes at the tail end of questions when Saul puts up two equation slides and points out how the vast majority of human power consumption flows through one or the other of these two, from an engineering point of view! Note how he gives each of the key colored variables a normative prescription for how to make things more efficient...
