I don't think it's possible to explain climate change to somebody like the brutish Doug Ford.
He's too dumb and greedy.
And as proof of that he has just released this tax payer funded ad that goes after Justin Trudeau's carbon tax.
I suppose it might be possible to use science to explain to the Fordzilla that levels of green house gases like carbon dioxide are higher than they have ever been.
And I mean ever.
The Mauna Loa Observatory, which has measured the parts per million (ppm) of CO2 in the atmosphere since 1958, took a reading of 415.26ppm in the air on 11 May – thought to be the highest concentration since humans evolved.
Meteorologist Eric Holthouse retweeted the Mauna Loa readings and said: “This is the first time in human history our planet’s atmosphere has had more than 415ppm CO2.
“Not just in recorded history, not just since the invention of agriculture 10,000 years ago. Since before modern humans existed millions of years ago. “We don’t know a planet like this.”
But as we know Ford is barely evolved himself...
And would no doubt say "Science is bullshit, trees need carbon dioxide to grow."
Even though he's just axed a major tree-planting program.
And of course "a carbon tax is the worst tax EVER !!!!!"
So maybe the only way to try to explain global warming to somebody like Ford and his ghastly Ford Nation is to do what Bill Nye, the Science Guy, does here.

Keep it simple, repeat the message over and over again.
And of course keep the best part for the last.
Letting those who voted for Ford that they will end up living, or cooking, in a hell of their own making...
The people of Ontario will not soon forget what they did.
And will never, ever, forgive them...
