Just Have a Think YouTube channel seeks to understand the issues that face our civilisation in the 21st Century and focusses on the potential solutions that will save as many lives as possible and hopefully bring about a greater level of equality in the world. The channel is not a debating forum about whether Human Induced Climate Change is a real phenomenon or not. If that's what you're after then I can highly recommend chat forums like 'Climate Change Battle Royale' on Facebook, where people on both sides of the argument go round and round in circles achieving precisely nothing at all. That is a mug's game. And it's not my game. Anyway, outside of those caveats, I do try to keep it light and humorous wherever possible, so I hope you enjoy the content.
