Ryan L. Cooper, the able young web editor over at Washington Monthly, is the guy who remixed my TEDx talk to such nifty effect. Now he’s finished a new climate video of his own, which he produced and narrated.

Ryan will be the first to tell you that he’s not a video production guru. He’s an amateur, figuring stuff out on the fly. He just feels like he needs to be doing something, so he’s doing something. Would that there were more like him.
