That’s what I consider the core message to be of the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s cute animated video about climate change’s effects on sea creatures.

Deviating from the nature mockumentary style, this one instead takes the high tech approach to global warming by going the CGI walrus route. This pretty clearly emphasizes the difference between humans mitigating climate change (e.g., driving less) and marine life adapting to climate change (cue flying walruses).

It’s probably also worth noting that John Cleese narrates it and, according to the Aquarium, “to date has refused 3,982 plastic water bottles.” I assume he uses the Holy Grail instead.
