Ted-Ed get it right

I think the TED-ED series is brilliant for explaining things with visuals and analogues. It can make abstract topics such as tipping points in the climate system more comprehensible for the public. I'm not sure the billiards table is the best example, but as a learning resource for teachers it has a lot of benefits. I find too often scientists grip their scientific integrity and thus complexity too tightly, being able to break it down in ways such as this, perhaps engaging more visual learners, can help get a wider population interested in science.
