Burnie was at the White House yesterday for Climate talks, which begged the question - why?
Well - Burnie Burns and Rooster Teeth are popular and successful in a generation that the older generations haven't been able to reach through traditional media. That makes them good resources to work out how to implement plans that the government has for climate change, and communicate those plans with an online generation.
So what does that mean for us?
Well, as scientists we know about climate change, and we know what it can and will do. We're not eco-warriors, but we have knowledge and we have voices. As a scientist (professional, student, or person with interest in science alike), how can you contribute to the climate change discussion - and - reach other people your age?
