What is climate change, how long have we known about it, what will its effects be, and what can we do to help solve it? Hot Mess is a new PBS Digital Studios YouTube series from hosts Miriam Nielsen, Talia Buford, and Joe Hanson. Its mission: To explore how climate change impacts all of us, and about how we can create a better future for our planet and ourselves.

In their video premiere, Hanson explains the greenhouse effect and climate change, and then summarizes our recent history with the knowledge that burning fossil fuels is transforming the planet: We’ve Ignored Climate Change For More Than a Century.
