Global Climate Change

by Dr. David Braaten

These captioned videos are the components of a 1 hour presentation by Dr. Braaten on the topic of Global Climate Change, presented June 8, 2004 at the University of Kansas.

The movies are available in two formats. The first has both voice and captions and is of higher quality. The second is captioned, but has no voice and is slightly smaller. Size of each is shown in parentheses next to the title.

We recommend you open the movie and then open the accompanying PowerPoint slide(s) so you can more easily view the information shown to the audience.
