Two videos explaining the basics of climate science

This is video by the UK Met Office explains in under 5 minutes that while the Earth’s climate has changed many times in response to natural factors, over the course of the last century we have seen an unusual rise in the average global temperature that cannot be explained by natural causes alone.

The Met Office’s online climate guide offers more detailed information.

And this rather cute video by Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project uses ping pong balls and such for the same purpose. It also explains how warming is changing the Earth’s water cycle, leading to more extreme weather events.
