Climate Change is just too much. There is never any good news. Only graphs that get more and more red and angry. Almost every year breaks some horrible record, from the harshest heat waves to the most rapid Glacier melt. It’s endless and relentless.
We have known for decades that rapid Climate Change is being caused by the release of Greenhouse Gases. But instead of reducing them, in 2019 the world was emitting 50% more CO2 than in the year 2000. And emissions are still rising. Why is that? Why is it so hard to just stop emitting these gases?

For these negative desires, we will be competing for survival. To live comfortably, when the most comfort is laying on a hammock in the wilderness on the beach, at ur finger tips..... We are fully challenged, as we speak, these same implication has left the reptiles, the dino days to stay fittest.

SO CHEAP THAT MOST PEOPLE HAVE ADAPTED TO ARTIFICIAL ENVIRONMENTS , WHEN THEY STEP INTO REAL CLIMATE THE EFFECTS ARE FELT MORE. FACT IS THAT THE LAST 30 YEARS OF RECORDED WEATHER IS A MIRROR TO 1880 TO 1910. ALSO REMEMBER ICE HAS BEEN MELTING SINCE THE WORLD CAME OUT OF A NUCLEAR WINTER IN THE ICE AGE.

The climate has been changing ever since earth had a climate and it will keep on changing long after we humans are gone. Even if we humans go 100% "green" the climate will change at the same rate as before.

  • You know, crystals can actually be an extremely efficient renewable energy source. These crystals are called piezoelectric crystals such as quartz, amethyst, tourmaline and topaz ect. They can generate energy by applying a charge, physical stress, or heat. And they never “run out” of energy charge because they never had a charge to begin with, The end of a crystal’s life is when it is broken or destroyed, otherwise it can generate electrical power forever. As a wiccan, I learn a lot of the magnificent power of crystals. They are not just used for magic or medicinal purposes. Sometimes we gotta look past what mundane society tells us, and see what nature has generously provided us with to improve our living whilst protecting our dear planet.

Aparently nuclear energy is far better, but people are scared. Wind and solar are interesting but they will no make up for fossil fuel. People usually have no idea how much energy does it take to melt steel. We are still highly dependable on fossil.

    • @Hm Grraarrpffrzz "countries will just send some boats to fish it out..." "until they'd sink again. " well... I said that garbage can be collected again, not that it is not harmful to the sea. Please don't destroy the main subject. As I said, history repeats itself. Having done the wrong thing in the past does not make it right to do the wrong thing again. Just like I wrote before. AND, I am a Korean so I don't know what the United States is doing, but I haven't seen the case you mentioned. If it's true, send me the link to the site where it's written. "Nonsense." "Our body is used to deal with low amounts of radiation due to having evolved in an environment with natural background radiation." Nonsense;; oh my... It is impossible to discuss which substances are more toxic because the radioactive concentration of contaminated water that Japan will emit is unknown. And there's no need to discuss it. If you insist that a substance is more toxic, of course it is radioactive. The main radioactive problems of contaminated water include cesium-137 and tritium dissolved in water. So, According to the 412th Fukushima Radioactive Water Pollution Water Report, cesium-137 of contaminated water through ALPS equipment twice is 400 becquerels per liter. Therefore, roughly all cesium-137s in contaminated water are considered to be about [4.2E+11] becquerels of radioactivity. Tritium also has a maximum of 44000 becquerels per liter, and tritium is not even filtered by ALPS equipment. Based on the evaluation based on the ORIZEN-2 code and the data directly measured in March 2014, the total amount of tritium activity in the contaminated water is [8.3E+14] becquerels. The level of radioactive concentration in a total of 62 radionuclides, including Cesium-137, is currently presented as a percentage of the safety-regulated concentration set by the Japanese government, with pollution levels more than 100 times higher than the regulatory standard totaling 65,000 tons, which is 6 percent of the total, and pollution levels 10 to 100 times higher than 10 times, 15 percent, or about 162,000 tons, and 5 to 32 times higher, respectively. Therefore, with the exception of tritium, the number of pollutants meeting the Japanese government's safety regulations for release of radioactive water is around 300,000 tons, or 28 percent of the total. The remaining 72 percent, or about 780,000 tons, is currently not meeting Japan's safety standards due to high levels of radioactivity. Given that Japan's radiation safety standards are significantly higher than those of its neighbors, this is a clear, irrefutable terror.

    • @고구마구운 _"Most garbage can be collected"_ Yeah, when toxic materials are purposefully dumped into the ocean, then it has no effect on it, and countries will just send some boats to fish it out... Once the USA dumped barrels with radioactive waste into the ocean in front of Florida. A while later the barrels came back to the surface, floating around there, so the US military sent fighter jets to shoot at the barrels until they'd sink again. _"People who eat seafood will get cancer"_ Nonsense. The micro plastic and other chemicals are far worse. Our body is used to deal with low amounts of radiation due to having evolved in an environment with natural background radiation. I agree that what Japan is doing is shitty, but most countries treat the ocean like a dump and fck our bodies up.

    • @Hm Grraarrpffrzz I know that other countries don't have to stop this just because they do similar things. The discharge of 1230000 tons of radioactive water into the sea is a different matter than dumping waste in the sea. Most garbage can be collected. But the radioactive water can't be recovered. It's a big mistake to think of pollution only in the sea. People who eat seafood will get cancer, have more malformations, and slowly the land will be polluted.

  • This is so childish, Bill Gates has disgraced himself with this garbage. The video statement: "we have known for some time that CO2 causes rapid climate change" is a complete misrepresentation. the truth is that climate scientists have known for even longer that climate change is driven by a very complicated mix of hundreds of factors and the greatest factor according to the IPCC is the Milankovitch Cycles. As for CO2 levels....well they are lower now than at virtually any other time throughout the history of the planet.

One mans disaster is another mans minor inconvenience. So i think it would be wise to stay within a scientific context when discussing science. That being said, i do think we should try to stay within the 1.5 degree target, it looks unrealistic at the moment, but a 1.5 degree increase will have known consequences. Ocean acidification, thawing permafrost, rising oceans etc.

    • @Væringjar “We know for a fact that temperature is a mixture of difference factors,” We are in agreement. "CO2 is the variable that facilitates current warming" This is a judgement, an assumption, it is not a fact. There is evidence that average temperatures have moved faster or at least by the same magnitude +0.79C in a thirty years period on a number of occasions without there being any change in CO2 Ppm. The evidence that the small 2% or 3% of Mans contribution to CO2 produced naturally will lead to a run away climate disaster is a nonsense IMO and I am backed by hundreds of scientists who are also of the same opinion. Just to be clear, are you saying the that you support the story that we have just one decade to save the planet from a climate armageddon?

      spillargespillargeDegi Síðan síðan
    • @spillarge We know for a fact that temperature is a mixture of difference factors, but CO2 is the variable that facilitates current warming. If you do not agree with this, then please provide evidence for what factors you think are responsible. _The evidence doesnt support this kind of nonsense_ What nonsense? You have to be more accurate, most of the _"we got a decade"_ does come from scientific predictions where future warming is projected with current emissions. The most cited is a timeframe for a 1.5 degree rise in temperature.

      VæringjarVæringjarDegi Síðan síðan
    • @Væringjar Given that temperatures can rise over decades to alter the rolling average without a notable change in CO2 doesnt support that an increasing temperature trend can ONLY be explained by CO2. Clearly there must be other factors or a combination of factors at play to produce the increase or decrease in the rolling average. I grant you that the science behind GHG forcing is not controversial, however the exageration and sensationalism of future scenarios, for instance one decade to save the planet is highly controversial as many, many leading scientists agree this kind of exageration has been taken too far. The evidence doesnt support this kind of nonsense.

      spillargespillargeDegi Síðan síðan
    • @spillarge Again, you’re right. Temperature on any given day is not a direct result if CO2. Bit the increasing trend can only be explained by CO2. This is not the least controversial. We have known this for a long time, and the rise has been pretty accurately predicted.

The oil industry and its grasp on politics have prevented a transition for their own benefit and nobody else. We suffer as a result of our dependence on fossil fuels we do not need fossil fuels to develop and improve standard of living. This is a myth invented by the fossil fuel industry.

  • Here's an unpopular opinion, Whos to say people will outlive covid to even make it to those few years we have left due to climate change. It will be a small group of the human population left to work with the remaining of what we so claimed the human specie abolished--which is power, energy. It cost a fortune while we are here but the small selected survivors I insist will not be working with wages or budgeting. Its like charging a Stranded survivor rent on an abandoned Island---Who would???? That's the thing they wouldn't . So think BIGGER you guys. I

    • Well, Covid 19 is not deadly enough to wipe out mankind, and improving the energy technology we have does not mean abolishing energy.

    • 1. What percentage of the current warming is contributed by people? 2. What will the average temperature increase be in 50 years? 3. If everyone one on earth shut down every factory and every machine, and shot themselves in the head today, what would the temperature change be in 50 years?

    • By zero CO2 we mean humans are not adding CO2 to the carbon cycle. We still need CO2 in the atmosphere.

    • Yeah, it doesn't add up because of the fundamental lie that CO2 levels today are above historical records. They are not and therefore there is no point in playing the game.

  • holy fuck dude...if they created the more energy efficent products then the fucking bills and the fucking numbers of energy needed should go down...are they? cause in my country they rise year by year the biggest problems here are the corporations, cause for them the entire idea is a bad deal, so we all pay for them to change production, then it will be them who get the benefits...great idea...shame it is great for them only...

  • Global Warming Catastrophe depends on when the next "Volcanic Cycle" begins. As of right now we are in "Cold" cycle. A normal non-hominid volcanic cycle would again and again and once again bury the state of Florida under water. So what is global warming? If the next Volcanic Cycle begins in the next couple centuries along with all that methane (PooP) frozen at the bottoms of our oceans warms up, then life in Bangladesh comes to an end.

  • The real problem is the rich billionaires who want to have all the power and make our world modern egypt with them being the pharaohs. They want to enslave us all. They've already done the first step: Create a system where they can corrupt everything and use their wealth to take over everything. Why do you think our public education is so terrible? We don't even learn history until later in our lives! It's just "social studies". Kids should be learning about Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley! It's the system, all our presidents are just bribed pawns for the rich. The Next step for world domination is to gain extreme wealth. They've already done most of this.(Looking at you, jeff bezos, with your net worth of 175 billion and gates, with your net worth of 110 billion, pretending to donate to charity when you're just giving to the bill and melinda gates foundation, pretemding to be wonderful, caring people when you guys are sick monsters). Now we get to climate change. Rich people are making cuts to the quality of their products. Cars get heavier, making more smoke. More coal plants. the rich are burning up our planet and are using capitalism and bribery to brainwash us and destroy our planet. For the next-to-last step, the rich must globalize our currency. Once they rule american currency, they will make our currency global, but they will call it something else and say that this new currency will get rid of poverty, when in fact, it will only spread their rule to every corner of the planet. How will they do global currency? Digitize it. Look at our coin shortage blamed on the fake pandemic(this isn't a lie, they've been counting death as covid deaths if there is -traces- of covid in them). look at credit cards. a digitized noney can be taken away from us if we disobey their will. Our food, our homes, taken if we do not obey. And for the final step: To dominate the world. And the darkest thing about this is that they've already done this step. I'm sure plenty of us have worried how to feed their families. I'm sure plenty of people are working at mcdonalds, or living in an apartment. We are slaves to our wages, our money, our need for food. The rich control our lives, our education, our leadership(when was the last time you chose the candidate for president), and most importantly, our laws and our leadership. by controlling these they force their will upon all of us. Police, if you are reading this, please look for the corruption in your organization. Police who are seen sprinkling drugs in peoples cars to frame them, or being racist and charged brown and black people with unfair charges. I Bet you do this out of necessity. If you don't get enough tickets in you will lose your job, your and your families(if you have one) will starve. And why charge those who look like you with unfair charges than those who look different? Power is in numbers. Stop hating each other, stop letting the rich divide you with politics and racism, covid and masks. We need to voice our complaint. remember: the rich are in the one percent- we are the 99. Those of you who are poor, do not blame your suffering on the anti-maskers of the black and brown people. It is the rich's fault. Be kind to your friends, no matter their belief. spread the word of this division, and what we can do to stop our hatred of each other. Care for each other. It is the least you can do to stop climate change, enslavement, plastic in the oceans, and world poverty.
