Hi my name is Collin Bell. I am currently a Sophomore at Andover High School and I recently made a video about climate change for my World Geography class. Tell me what you think: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1WG7fpta8zI

Pretty good! Earth is dynamic. It’s climate fluctuates over the centuries and millenniums. The only thing that leftists want is some excuse to redistribute “wealth”....into their own pockets.

Young man, in all seriousness, Al Gore is an idiot. He really is. The man has mental problems I feel were bought on when he lost the election in 2000( you were very young then) Don’t waste your time researching the ramblings of an idiot. I have a suggestion for you. Here are the names of some very great men, men of character, courage, honor and men who loved America. Men who fought for it and who gave us the freedoms we enjoy. Look them up and do a video on them. Here you go, Admiral William F. ‘’Bull’’ Halsey, General George Patton, just to name two. Ok? But please young man, forget about Al Gore and his ‘’global warming’’ nonsense.

Might be worth watching the video - the kid is making the case that global warming is a hoax not buying into the idea.

Collin, you should ask for the title of your thread to be changed to match your video title.

Speaking as a high school teacher, I've got to say, I wouldn't give this a very good grade. Not because of the political position you are taking (a position I largely agree with in fact) but simply because your position is so political in the second half of the piece. I know you probably have to put up with teachers politicising the classroom at times - that doesn't make it a good idea for you to do the same with one of your assignments. Teachers pushing a left wing political agenda in schools is a problem largely because teachers shouldn't be pushing any political agenda in schools. Fighting the politicisation of education by strongly politicising your own assignments isn't the best idea.

I also think your explanation of what the Greenhouse Effect is, at the start of the assignment is off - you imply the Greenhouse effect is about bouncing heat into space off the atmosphere. It isn't. It's about the atmosphere preventing heat escaping by 'bouncing' it back to earth once it's already passed into our atmosphere (and the land and sea as well) from space. If you are going to argue about the science, you need to get core descriptions of scientific processes correct.

It's all very pretty - but prettiness and good production values shouldn't be what matters. It's ideas that they do which is what gives us things like An Inconvenient Truth. Nothing wrong with it looking good - seeing you have the skills, by all means use them - but you've got to make sure the core is solid - especially when challenging arguments that are flawed because their core isn't.

Welcome to Free Republic! I replaced the title you used here with the title you originally used on your You Tube video. We ask everyone to only use published titles to prevent duplicate threads.

Then I placed your other title in brackets next to your published title. Once the published title is pasted into the title space and if there is space, brackets or parentheses can be added to surround a Poster's opinion or further explanation next to the published title.

I also added your name into the author space because you created the video yourself. I added your name as the source of the video because you created the video in this case. Then I added You Tube as the site where you uploaded your video.

Also I added the date when you first uploaded your video onto You Tube into the date space.

Again, welcome to Free Republic! Good job on the video. I enjoyed it and agree with the points you made. I hope your classmates and teacher also enjoy it. Good luck!

Nicely done, but I think you should slow it down a bit.
Give the viewers a little more time to read the captions and absorb the graphs and charts.
What grade did you receive?

Okay—I din’t watch the video until now—your title put me off. I assumed you had had your head filled with algore mush.

After watching the video, I’m impressed.

Are you in high school?

Hi Colin -

Nice video. Fun graphics -

Suggested improvements -

For me - I like an outline or at least an “abstract” or summary up front. Tell the viewer what you are going to tell them. Then present the data - in the graphs etc that you have - then - Conclusion.

The way they used to say this is “Tell them what you are going to tell them, tell them, then tell them what you just told them” -

Exec Summary
Body
Conclusion


As far as reasons for the leftists - it comes down to one word - CONTROL. They want CONTROL over our lives, and CONTROL over value streams and businesses - see - they can’t tax without CONTROL. So - control health care, control energy, etc

Also - some of your graphs up front - might be mroe fun as pie charts - so you can show a tiny tiny tiny sliver - that 0.28% - that man controls (got 6that word in again)

Also - you left out that the leftist models require CO2 to function as a forcing factor for water vapor - that is how they drive the big numbers. That is the “fudge factor” - when the forcing function is played with - it plays with taht big number - the water vapor driver.

re water vapor driver - this was revcently debunked with some NASA study that somehow eluded the polticos.

Anyway - best to you - great start for a kid. I’m from Melrose and North Reading - if you are Andover MA.

The title is misleading it should read: "Global Warming Scam" (for school project video)

Other then that you did great.

This is what I wrote:
Very well done Thank you Socialism is a scam to take money from the working class and poor to give too the rich.

Global warming is analogous to the flat earth. If we look out at the horizon the earth is flat.

If you only look at one short period of time the earth is warm. Yet we live in the coldest part of the quaternary Ice Age near the end of an interglacial period with CO2 levels at near record lowest levels in Earths history. 100 ppm drop would mean our death with ~2000 is earth's norm

I hate youtube for many reasons one being I cannot explain myself with so few words.
Plants stop growing at CO2 levels less then 220 ppm.
Socialism is a very simple system of taxing the working class to redistribute it to big business that is on the government dole. But it will never be stated that way.

said, "The way they used to say this is “Tell them what you are going to tell them, tell them, then tell them what you just told them”

That format is great if you are not talking with brainwashed individuals.

If you are talking with brainwashed individuals you need to present your information as though you are their brother in arms. Other wise you are just scum of he earth and there is no need to listen.

So, you’re a member of the flat Earth society,eh? And what exactly is it with me that you don’t agree with, particularly, ‘’global warming’’ or the greatness of the men I mentioned?

I think you’ve misunderstood - he was agreeing with my ‘teachers analysis’ of the video back at comment 11, and initially he misread that comment as coming from you. His “I agree with naturalman1975 not jmacusa” was just correcting the error of attribution. I am pretty sure Steve Van Doorn agrees that climate change is a scam giving his comments elsewhere in the discussion.

Good job.

I am one to nit pick, but I hope to do so constructively.

On the part where you were explaining about the heat driving CO2 (via ocean abortion and emission) rather than the other way around, I think it would have been best to first show the strong correlation from the longer term charts...but then zoom in and show the lag to illustrate that the direction of cause and effect must be heat to CO2 rather than the other way.

Also, the second part where you are linking the science to a political agenda, although correct in your conclusions, you were trying to go too far too quickly for the purposes of rhetoric, and may have undercut your case to the casual observer who has not really followed any of this stuff. People are naturally resistant to changing their own opinions, so persuasion is a more gradual process...i.e. you can't take someone from uniformed all the way to harsh reality in just a few minutes.
