    That's one of the most amazing videos I've seen in a while 😳 Finally someone who talks about a serious problem in a simple language, so even children at the age of 14 would understand the most of it. Huge respect!
  • Al LePage
    THIS HAS GOT TO BE ONE OF THE VERY BEST OVERALL CLIMATE CHANGE PRESENTATIONS EVER!
  • What an extraordinary piece of work. You've already changed the world of software development; I think you're about to change the world. Outstanding.
  • Kattko Nelezz
    Классное видео! Особое спасибо за субтитры на русском! Будем распространять!💚
  • Rene Yapp
    Thanks for putting this in the creative commons so it can be shared with everyone. I love the simplicity of explanation that covers complicated concepts. The links are amazing too!
  • Jon Stahl
    Great job Henrik, as usual, so very cool to see you applying your skills outside of software :)
  • Angel Kolev
    Admirations for the ability to acquire knowledge and distribute it in an contagiously inspiring way. I have the chance to work with more than 200 kinds in a highly polluted town, especially in winter because of the coal burnt for heating houses. This video is a firm ground for firing a bring-consciousness discussion at our school which kids, hopefully, will continue at their homes.
  • Awesome video Henrik! As with all other visualization you create, this explains an extremely important and difficult problem in a very easy way. I hope it goes viral. /Andreas
  • Phạm Minh Châu

  • What an excellent detailed presentation on climate change. I just like this with my whole heart. This is beyond words....
  • Dylan
    I've been scared of climate change for so long, thinking it's the end of the world, but this video gave me hope for the future. We still have a long way to go but there are still so many things we can do about the problems we're facing. Thank you for this video
  • Siew Wei
    Excellent summary and presentation. You've made it so easy to understand such complex issue. Thanks!
  • Lord Shen
    Uma explicação nada mais do que perfeita!
  • The Walrus
    Great video. Thank you for respecting your audience by not making them the villain of the story. I believe that the method used to spread a message is as important as the message itself and you delivered the message in a non- confrontational and informative manner.
    Question: What is the program you use for you animation?
  • Johan Stroman
    I really appreciate the clear factual and pragmatic solutions/ hopeful oriented message
  • Thank you so much for this presentation, absolutely amazing, have an assignment on this didn't have a clue what Climate change is about, now I'm so confident about my assignment I will bring an A+, sincerest gratitude to you!
  • Tharani Jeya
