But DON'T WATCH THIS VIDEO! I'm serious. This message isn't a hack (I'm the guy in the video), and it's not a ploy to get you to actually watch it (reverse psychology).
It's just that there's a hole in this argument big enough to drive a Hummer through because of an assumption I didn't realize I had (isn't that just the way with assumptions. . .), and the argument has been UPDATED to address that hole.
So instead of watching this old, tired, hole-y video, go watch the NEW, IMPROVED version at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mF_ana...
It's called "How It All Ends," and is backed up by literally HOURS of "Expansion Pack" videos, answering every single criticism, objection, "What If," "How About," and "You Missed a Spot," that I came across in reading the 7000+ comments (most of them critical) on various websites about the argument presented in this "The Most Terrifying Video You'll Ever See."
So please, DON'T WATCH THIS VIDEO and then make some comment about Pascal's Wager or how this argument can be applied to any threat, no matter how ridiculous. Those, and literally EVERY OTHER OBJECTION I'VE EVER HEARD are answered in the bruisingly thorough series of videos backing up "How It All Ends."
Even though I DON'T WANT YOU TO WATCH THIS VIDEO, I'm not taking it down, because I'm hoping it (and the comments attached) will become a small piece of history, as a precursor to the UNDENIABLE TOUR-DE-FORCE ARGUMENT that is the "How It All Ends" video project.
So DON'T WATCH THIS VIDEO (have I made myself clear?) I'm hoping that it dies a nice, quite, peaceful death, fading into respected irrelevance. Instead, go watch the new, up-and-coming "How It All Ends" at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mF_ana...
Once you get there--if you follow the index to the other videos--I think you'll find that I present an argument that you CANNOT poke a hole in. I've spent literally hundreds of hours discussing, researching, and refining my arguments to ensure that.
And then, once you're convinced, do everything you can to spread the message--forward the video, leave comments, nominate it for awards, agitate for YouTube and others to feature it, mash it up, burn DVDs and hand them out like candy--hell, even record YOURSELF making the arguments, get famous doing so, and make lots of money--I don't care! Just get the ideas out there!
So go ahead. Watch "How It All Ends," and its expansion pack videos, and try to poke a hole in the argument. I dare you.
I DOUBLE-DOG dare you. (Ooooooo. . . .)
And if you can't, then you may find yourself with a strong agitation to do something about the potential threat. In my experience, the only way to calm that agitation is to act on it. I've got a video for that, too. ;-)
So go for it.
****BULLETIN (10NOV08): Despite my best intentions to let go of this damn project and get back to my family, I gave in to a book agent's suggestion to turn these videos into a book. So, hundreds of dollars of Red Bulls later, "What's the Worst That Could Happen? Cutting Through the Hubbub Over Global Warming" is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com. Go to http://tinyurl.com/WorstThatCouldHappen if you're interested. No guarantees, but I think it's much better than the videos Plus, you can help me recoup some of my Red Bull bill. :-) And give my wife something tangible for all the suffering I've put her and the kids through.
