To get some background on how we deal with sponsorships please read this blog post:

Never before in human history have we been richer, more advanced or powerful. And yet we feel overwhelmed in the face of rapid climate change. It seems simple on the surface. Greenhouse gases trap energy from the Sun and transfer it to our atmosphere. This leads to warmer winters, harsher summers. Dry places become drier and wet places wetter. Countless ecosystems will die while the rising oceans swallow coasts and the cities we build on them.

So why don’t we just like… prevent all of that? Well, it’s complicated.

@Chishio Chishio 1. Add 5%/year of today’s level to energy efficiency to +40% total by 2030. 2. Taper 1% of today’s level per month fossil emission, down to zero by 2030. 3. Plant 4 new trees/person/year or equal direct air drawdown down to 300 ppmv. 4. Stabilize, fix and grow ecosystems down to 300 ppmv. (But why ever stop?) 5. Cut 100% of avoidable emissions of methane-or-worse CO2e gases right now. There's nothing political in that.

I'm so glad Kurzgesagt talked about the fucked up process of shifting *global* and *social* responsibility to the *individual*. Entire governments and corporations try everyday to shift responsibility and accountability for their decisions to the masses, and although we're responsible too, it's their responsibility to spearhead change. If there's anyone out there who likes podcasts, take a look at Citations Needed. There's an episode that talks all about this by discussing how the US handled the coronavirus pandemic.

Who cares about climate change, the climate was different when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. Humans will not live forever, we will have our time on earth just like the dinosaurs had their time. Anyway isn't it our goal to get to heaven? When the earth goes, Jesus will come back. So if getting to heaven is the goal, who cares if the earth is getting hot. It's been hot, and it's been cold many times before, it's the normal cycle of the earth.

I vote at the gas station with my dollar. I can't vote for annelecteic car because I am 50 and have never ever taken a bank loan for a car. I refuse to be indebted any more to the banks. I owe them nothing and never ever will take a loan again. I've been driving junk cars for last 20 years and have taken all that money that would have went to a bank loan into investing. I now have more silver and gold than ever dreamed 20 years ago when I decided to do that. Plus own stocks and can easily pay for another decent used car when this one finally dies. Also know an incredible mechanic. I'm not sure why people spend so much on vehicles. I'll never understand.

No is correct. The sooner current life forms become extinct the sooner some other life form will evolve. There is nothing you can do to change this.
Sean Scott
Sean Scott Před 14 hodinami
It isn't a one then the other kind of thing. Species will evolve and fill new niches even if the other life form isn't yet extinct. Onto how we can change the evolution/extinction cycle stuff, look at cities and pigeons. The reason there are so many pigeons is cause we accidently created an environment where they thrive. At the same time, that environment is quite bad for other types of species who are now losing habitat grounds. Climate change is that but on the global scale, which we have influence on as well.

Ok. Please hear me out on this. Mammoth Mountain is opening early this year and please DON'T say that disproves Climate Change. In fact it's the opposite. If you follow the science, Climate Change has warmed the Arctic which has displaced cold air from the Hudson Bay high pressure to the south. Colder air is heavier than warmer air so the air that is warmed due to Climate Change gets displaced around the high pressure creating Atmospheric Rivers. Since the warmer air in the Atmospheric Rivers can carry more water than usual that increases the snow fall in the Sierras (Mammoth). You have to understand the science to be able to follow the effects of Climate Change.

Humans are smarter than you give them credit for. We have tools that let us analyze what stuff was like in the past. Just like how we can look at ancient fossils to see creatures long since extinct, we can look at geological records to figure out how temperatures should usually change over time. The way our temperature is changing currently doesn't have a natural explanation.

Hopefully we end up developing lab-grown meat then. Once the science gets to a certain point, we will likely be able to essentially "grow meat on trees", which will be significantly more environmentally friendly. Probably not actual trees of course, but you get the point.

Fun fact, when will will humans defeat climate change. Let’s just say, that revolution will be civilization as we know it will have to collapse on itself first before we make any substantial progress. I feel like we have hit the lvl of Rome and our impending collapse of civilization as we know it seems unavoidable. They’re will be a dark age and by sometime in this dark Age they will have had to find a way to make free energy using space particle accelerator or humanity may simply die out all the way back to the Stone Age. Maybe by then the earth would have had a chance to heal itself. Yeah the earth will live for billions of yrs so anything is possible. Maybe somewhere in that spance of time perhaps humanity will have hopefully not reached the point of know return and find out what went wrong with the previous civilization. And then find out how to solve unlimited energy problem

Mandrak789 Před dnem
Planet and climate has always been changing for one reason or another. It's futile to try to stop that. Right now, yes, humans are the main cause. But changes are good, they drive evolution and nature's search for improvement and refiment of all living things. Casualties are unavoidable as always, but at the end life wins and only gets more advanced. We won't die out because of the global warming, we will change and adapt.
Sean Scott
Sean Scott Před 14 hodinami
​@Mandrak789 I think you misunderstand the point of evolution. Evolution doesn't aim to create the most perfect refined species, all it does is adapt to the environment. A dinosaur is no more refined than a monkey. They are just different creatures meant for different times. Also, we don't have to stop all climate change to see benefits from at least trying. Living in a world where 2 billion people's homes are underwater vs 1 billion is a big deal.
Mandrak789 Před 16 hodinami
@Bluesbr0ther True. We can just speculate about it.
Bluesbr0ther Před 16 hodinami
@Mandrak789 If CO2 levels hadn't dropped to around 280 ppm perhaps evolution would have gone in another direction too and intelligence might not have appeared at all.
Mandrak789 Před 16 hodinami
@Bluesbr0ther Yes, but that's the way life seems to work. 99% of species that have ever lived aren't around any more. Progress is going hand to hand with extinctions. If the meteor did not kill dinosaurs and removed their evolutionary pressure on mammals, who knows? Perhaps intelligence wouldn't have appeared at all. Anyway, my point is that we should just accept that at this point it's impossible to stop, much less to reverse global warming. But we shouldn't be too worried about our survival because humans proved to be extremely resilient and flexible species. Sure, there will be a lot of distress and drama in a process, but keeping status quo was never really an option. We opened up Pandora's box and the best thing to do is not to fight against something that can't be beaten, but to prepare for what's coming. Because there's no going back.
Bluesbr0ther Před 22 hodinami
@Mandrak789 The Permian-Triassic Extinction event killed 90% of all life on the planet. Let's not do that again. The events you mention killed a lot of life too. And yes, life adapts. But not when the meteor hit, the dinosaurs went extinct. That is not adapting, that is just plain dying.

@Ican FeeLIt production of an EV do have higher emissions than ICE. But just as an example, where i live i need to drive an EV for 10.000km before it’s emissions catches up to an ICE, that number keeps lowering as we have more RE in the grid.
Ican FeeLIt
Ican FeeLIt Před 3 hodinami
@Væringjar production ....
Væringjar Před dnem
@hooplehead101 exactly. And even if an EV is driving at 100 coal power, it will instantly make RE cheaper, since it’s decentralised storage. + the added benefit of lowered partical pollution. The only thing to note would be to drive your current vehicle as long as possible before switching to EV.
hooplehead101 Před dnem
@Væringjar And in most countries where EVs are a viable thing now - you wont drive them now in subsahran tropical African countries - the electricity grid is such that EVs rapidly "undertake" ICEs in total emissions. Engineering Explained has made a specific video about that for the US, comparing different states in the US. Results are pretty suprising how fast EV ist better than keeping your old car.

I wonder what's the problem with trying to reduce my carbon emissiones by 100% - of course I will never reach it, it is more an utopic idea, an ideal. It would help to reduce carbon emissiones on the planet for 1 second - of course; As I am only one of a 7 million people on earth, I can't make a bigger impact so easily. It can't be an excuse for not doing anything only because I am one of billions. My responsibility always remains. One individual is not zero, it's one. A lot of individuals could do a lot. It's really not that hard to get that.

I'm well educated in the sciences (M.S. Agriculture). I have three professional engineering registrations. I only mention those two things because I, for the life of me, can't determine what the actual science says. CO2 is increasing, on average, in the atmosphere. True. But it's not linear and it varies from place to place and from Summer to Winter (the science has done a good job in determining that). Glaciers are receding. True in many places. But they have been receding for hundreds of years and it's well documented. Hydrocarbon mining (oil wells, coal mines) are increasing output (except for a dip last year). But are we all going to die? I see no scientific evidence of that. The oceans aren't rising appreciably. The science has proven that. No one has died that can be directly attributed to climate change (this is a tough one for people to understand, but of course people die every day - it's just that there's no evidence a changing climate has increased the death rate). Nowhere on earth that was habitable by man has become uninhabitable. As a well educated person I want increase efficiency in our power use. I want a reduction in hydrocarbon use. But I get a headache at all the nonsense that is spewed blaming every little thing on Global Warming or Climate Change. No, the male Polar Bear that attacked and killed (and apparently ate) a polar bear cub while a National Geographic expedition ship was sailing by wasn't caused by Global Warming. Male Polar Bears unfortunately (for the cub) have been killing cubs that they come across for ever.

And when you discussi climate science, I assume you actually have read science, not the pieces you cite out of some media bs. And the most prominent, comprehensive, respected summary of scientific papers for decades have been the IPCC assessment reports. Really, never read any one of them and nevertheless stating claims about climate? Puhh, thats a bit discomforting.

Also, will you acknowledge the fact that population growth isn’t linear and the world economic forum expects a decline as nations progress and liberalize, resulting in women having less children?

North and South America is around 42 million square km in total. Beef production alone takes around 30 million square km if you count the food being produced for the cows too. So it actually looks correct.

Sudoki Před dnem
"Vote with your ballot" and "Vote with your wallet" sounds a lot like "personal responsibility", and much of the opinion piece sounds like trying to keep the current status quo but slightly adjusting things (which hasn't worked so far) Earlier in the video you pointed out that switching to green alternatives is time consuming and expensive, something those with privilege can do. But when much of society lacks that privilege or when political systems are geared towards benefitting those with wealth, it's not exactly simple to vote out since it takes much of society to agree that there's a problem (not to mention how much propaganda is pushed out by media that is owned and sponsored by the wealthy). It's also not simple to change society when wealth is held in the hands of a few and politicians are at their whim so that political systems can't be enacted that would force redistribution of that wealth in some capacity (such as higher minimum wages or UBI) and gives more of society more agency, or collect it and use it to the benefit of society (rather than existing corporations).

Why do so many of you fail to understand that just because something can happen naturally, it does not mean that it cannot happen in other ways too?

Short answer: No. Long answer: No, No. Longer answer: There is no need. Even longer answer : you are all dumb as a box of crayons if you think what this man is saying is the truth. The truth is Climate change has been happening before the dawn of man. Even if we could stop it, shutting down the whole planet is not the answer. Overpopulation is a myth. People who say is real in reality are too weak to raise their offspring and are basically admitting they would not survive in the current world... Despite our quality of life being better than XVIII century kings. So for that, thank you For removing yourself from the genepool. And besides, we still have heaven... If you have been "Good".

Let me get this straight, the only real problem is that there are too many people, and even people willing to change the problem do not have enough funds or motivations precisely because the demand is very large to supply the huge number of people and the size of the problem, the system is naturally wrong and countries need to follow this error if they want to grow, this further increasing the emission of co2 into the atmosphere, destroying even more ecosystems and making it even more difficult to solve the problem, and as it is too late too much we can only try to motivate the large population to change?, unless a miracle happens and the population becomes less ignorant in the coming years we are doomed.

You are ignorant and stupid. Your own incompetence will sentance you, Boaz. Climate change has been happening before the dawn of man. Overpopulation is a myth. I must say, I pity you.

Are the electric cars REALLY better for climate? What about batteries manufacturers? Is carbon footprint smaller for electric cars? You need to charge them with power from carbon power plant, so is it truly worth it?

@King Alastor What about them?
King Alastor
King Alastor Před dnem
Also, what about nuclear plants?
hooplehead101 Před 2 dny
@Somebody No, because they are 5 times more inefficient than BEVs. They are only seen as alternative bc of the disadvantages of use of BEVs: Longer charging times. This disadvantage is diminishing to the point that in a couple of years, this wont be an issue any more. Hydrogen and snyfuels do have their place where energy density or loading time will not be enough in BEVs in the short to medium future: in long haul trucks, ships, and planes.

Nah E-fuels and hydrogen cars IMO have more future potential

Seriously, let's get one thing straight, its climatic perturbations causing the shifts in climatic anomalies or deviations from the normal seasonal conditions we are accustomed to, and the actor is nature. How so? Nibiru means crossing and a planetary body comes to Earth's solar orbit every 3,600 years. HERCOLUBUS and entourage is now in its ecliptical orbit and is near Earth which is now set at 23 degree tilt due to the precession of the equinoxes which occurs every 26,000 years. Its is alleged to cause the polar shifts. The perturbations or shake up is expected to last 20 years and when Hercolubus and entourage of celestial body completes the eclipt and travels back into deep space. During the solar cyclical cosmic crossover (or con-junction), of the planetary body, there will be PERTURBATIONS with varied degree of disorders followed by a lack of order or lack of predictability where entropy reign supreme. Waves of charged plasmatic energy system and the flow of energy may disrupt the core flows of the Earth and trigger catastrophic changes in Earth's climate. The natural forces inducing the anomalies are extreme shifts in climate or weather affecting all the elements such as temperatures, precipitations, water levels, wind, tectonic ground conditions and soil stability, underground as well as surface volcanic activities, polar shifts affecting Ice and Glacial activities etc, but the most challenging problem comes from epidemics caused by viruses unleash from melting Ice or glaciers and from tectonic shitfs. Climate change is just a term to describe the degradation of the environment as the result from consumption of materials. Its really good to tidy up and give consideration to the living habits in consuming materials to pursue economic wealth but the mitigation to achieve carbon neutrality can result in improved living conditions. The option is to develop dispersed township located properly in most suitable terrain to avoid low lying densely populated regions. Can anyone stop this natural progression?

In my country, the Green Party has done more harm than good when it comes to the environment. It has shut down nuclear plants, and has with it's other radical political baggage turned more people away than they've been able to convince. There needs to be RATIONAL responses to climate change. Not emotional gut responses, like banning nuclear or thinking plastic straws will be the turning point. And for a majority to be able to get on board, the green politics has to remain otherwise politically disattached. If you're for open border immigration (for example), great, that's your perogative - but you're dooming the climate change question when you start conflating other parts of contentious politics with protecting the environment. That goes for all kinds of political leanings. The very existence of political parties and ideologies is due to the fact that we famously can never all agree. Including any other kind of politics will make it so you will never be able to gather enough support behind you. Again, there has to be a rational response. Political polarization influences people into locked opposing vitriolic sides. That makes accepting compromises, like Kurtzgesagt proposes we will all need to, way less likely. The less of that mess we can bring into combating climate change, the easier it will be.

1. Agreeing that shutting down existing nuclear plants is a bad idea. If youre referring to Germany - Merkel has finally decided to confirm previous decisions. 2. Banning plastic straws is an easy no-brainer and a very bad example by Kurzgesagt for conflicting or detracting policies: It doenst bind any relevant ressources to care for other parts of environmental protection by this policy. 3. Parties do and even have to state their objectives in various political fields - not only climate politics. That is a prerogative for a transparent election choice by citizens. Its completely absurd to blame a party for having ...their specific profile. Why on earth should they self-deny their objectives in other fields only because for example you would vote for them, but you dont, because you dont agree with their other stances? If you agree with other parties´´ stance more, but they are very bad at climate politics in your opinion - well, then that its your call to push them towards better climate politics, or find, support or found another party or engage in climate activism so that more citizens and eventually parties change their stances. I agree that climate activism should focus on climate and not conflate it with other topics if they want to have maximal support. But not parties.
