Tonight, he finally tackled climate change head on after alluding to it many times previously. As with every episode, he and Seth MacFarlane wove amazing computer graphics, detailed scientific evidence and animated historical story telling into an easy to comprehend documentary.
They demonstrated why human caused global warming is "a pretty tight case," and beautifully explained the adverse affects of carbon pollution from human activities like burning coal and oil, at one point "visualizing" the CO2 in a typical city.
Using a fascinating array of video to explain the scientific understanding of climate change and other natural mechanics like positive feedback loops, we're warned our kids are in for "a rough ride."
I don't want to spoil the end, but let's just say they remain optimistic, pointing out its not an impossible predicament — we know what the solutions are, we just need the political will and courage to do what needs to be done.
