Hair-raiser II - JM Jancovici Conf. on Human influence on Climate Change - Translation(TBD=To Be Done)

My previous (first) post brought the hair-raising group "Above-All-Else" to your attention. My readers are most probably not their usual fans

Here I shall continue with another "Hair-Raiser" despite the now classical title of the video subject - "Human role in Climate Change" - basic to any serious, global, prospective-foresight or road-mapping work, I humbly surmise. The Video Conference link to the "Not sufficiently well-known french climatologue, and somewhat irreverent "no-holds-barred", Jean-Marc Jancovici, will be given below. The conference was given in the equally highly unusual "almost hair raising-if not amongst a somewhat bald or grey haired congregational setting of the Roman Catholic Church Annual Gatherings, Sydney and Canberra, Australia of all places are mentionned. The video is due to french TV2 programme "Le Jour du Seigneur-Semaines Sociales"_"The day of the Lord-Social Weeks" is in french and the sound quality poor - Jean-Marc had a slight throat cold. Nevertheless, I'll translate the main points in his post as soon as possible - both good for students of the french language and for my translation and sumarising powers.
