This video was written, narrated and directed by Leo Murray.

Although the first 8 minutes contains some imagery that might be a bit scary for younger children as well as some adults (especially before bedtime), Wake Up, Freak Out – then Get a Grip is intended to give you hope.  And it does.

My hope is that the story motivates us to play our own part in helping to make a difference; together, we can each use our influence to bring about extensive, effective and timely carbon emissions reductions and speed the transition to a low-carbon economy.

The video is a creative and inspirational piece designed to encourage us to get involved and take action to combat climate change in whatever way we may find appropriate.

There is no time to lose!  You only have to read today’s IET Power article, World ‘on borrowed time’ over carbon emissions, says report, about the latest report from the Prime Minister’s special representative on deforestation and clean energy, to know the climate clock’s ticking …

Leo Murray was with us at Climate Rush on Monday 13 October 2008.  You can tell from my photo he has a more friendly, cheerful demeanour than you might guess if you only watched the first half of his video ;-)

  1. Good to see you promoting Leo’s film.
    I think it is excellent.

    He has a web site that has the script and science references:
