b: racism

The Climate Bear

a: Climate change ~
b: big crazy bear

What: "Let's say you are walking down a trail in the wilderness with your wife and kids, and you come upon a grizzly sow, standing on a carcass. She charges, flat out. You're in front of your family. What do you do? Just give up? Pretend it's not happening? Let her maul you and everything your care about? Of course you don't. You take action. That is how I see climate change."

A Gem On An Association

a: Climate change ~
b: human being walking a dog

What: This is the best analogy. This process is like a person walking their dog. The human is the climate and the dog is the weather. If you watch someone with a dog, the person is typically walking straight and the dog is weaving back and forth. Of couse, this is more applicable to ANY form of data that's is looked at with statistics. See the video.

Climate Change As High Cholesteral Diet

a: Climate change ~
b: debate over diet

What: "The reason I think is that, like the climate, the human body is vastly more complex than we are currently capable of containing in our data analysis etc. I think the climate is probably even more complex, and we will likely never be able to predict whether very accurately beyond a few weeks, and even that is a crap shoot at times."

a: Climate Change ~
b: medical emergency

What:

"We're the Lancet Commission on Public Health and Climate, a group of medical doctors, climate scientists, economists and energy experts that have recently released a major report on our policy options for reducing the health impacts of climate change. Formally titled Health and climate change: policy responses to protect public health, this report not only details the many different ways global warming is a medical emergency, but more importantly it lays out some of our options for confronting this crisis."
