In a recent op-ed featured in the Washington Post, Bill McKibben, author and founder of 350.org wrote about the increasing number of natural disasters that have spanned the globe in the past year. Turning McKibben’s words into stunning visual display, Stephen Thomson of Plomemedia.com has created a video which calls attention to the disturbing reality of global warming, questioning how our political leaders, and fellow citizens, will choose to grapple with the issue. The video, featured on ThinkProgress, has gained over 50,000 in its first week. Does this mark the beginning of a trend of op-eds becoming visually enaging youtube videos? Decide for yourself.
