The fact that climate change is happening is no longer in question, but whether it's occurring naturally or due to human action is still a up for debate (to a small minority of Americans). And as some studies have shown, even when facts are presented, once someone has decided on a viewpoint, it can be hard to change their minds.

So how about some humor to alter perspective?

The BuzzFeed video below starts with the familiar setup: "We hired some unsuspecting temps to work in our 'office'" and the rest is a metaphorical take on climate-change deniers.

Why indeed?
