This video is part of a series about climate change supported by Breakthrough Energy - a coalition founded by Bill Gates, that is working to expand clean-energy investment and support the innovations that will lead the world to net-zero carbon emissions.

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?

  • I kind of had an idea while you were talking about this with the carbon capture technology, would it be possible to create a variety of different sized filters to just slap on things like car exhausts, or factory smokestacks and stuff? (I apologize for my wording I'm not very big brain rn). But if we could make something that filtered out carbon and attached it to something that had a direct carbon output, could that work if the technology is even possible?

We are not the cause China, India and Russia togather pollute more than 20 America's combined. America has bent over backwards to combat climate change. Meanwhile China was accepting the world's trash to "recycle" it for payment from other countrys. Problem was they werent recycling anything. They were dumping it into the ocean. So how about we tackle the root issue and stop destroying America's econemy for no reason.

When is the beach going to come to me? In third grade, 30+ years ago they said this balogna to me. The beach hasn't budged, the oceans never rose. We were all going to die from the ozone holes too. And we were going to run out of fossil fuels by 2010. All those things make me think that today's scientist are still just guessing and really dont know what tomorrow will bring.

    John RymszewiczJohn Rymszewicz6 dni temu
    • John I think you fail to tell the difference between Science and Fiction/ doomsday predictions. Climate change isn't exactly a doomsday but would make the global environment much more hostile to us as well as many other species. While yes the Earth's Climate has changed in the past what's occuring now it a direct correlation to CO2 emissions. The issue is that if enough CO2/ Greenhouse gases were able to raise the Earth' Temperature enough it could throw the Global Water cycle out of wack, that's what Scientists are worried of. Lastly ozone holes aren't realted to climate change, they were weaker region of C3 caused by aerosols, thanks to the government actually taking it seriously they were able to regulate and reduce the amount of Aerosols in Spray cans whcih helped allow natrual processes tor replace the lost C3. If the ozone layer were to weaken too much UV radiation hitting the surface would infact increase, which is a concern. Hence why many governments and companies took it very seriously. And another think I havn't seen any and I mean any Scientific paper saying that we would run out of Fossil fules in 2010, maybe some stupid blogs might have posted some stupid catchy headlines but as of me writting this scientists predict we might run out of known reserves in 2060s.

  • Literally just use nuclear power already. Its a technology that can produce all the energy we need anywhere anytime with next to no carbon emissions. Convert as many machines to electric to run off the grid as possible. Thats about 80% of emissions cut right there. At the very least that ought to buy us another century. Its really that simple.

    • @Connor O'Brien Yes they have managed to extract 5 grams of Uranium from a sea water experiment. But there is a long way from 5 gram to a commercial production , a nuclear reactor uses around 27 tons per year. That is 27.000.000 grams per year per nuclear reactor. . And i did actually say ''in deposits large enough to extract'' in my previous post. I am well aware that our oceans have massive quantities and it is possible that we eventually find a way to extract it for commercial use but we don't have that technology yet.

      Bluesbr0therBluesbr0ther5 dni temu
    • @Bluesbr0ther i don't know where you pulled those numbers out of because you can literally extract nuclear fuel from seawater and if its the core of our energy economy every gram will count. Theres enough nuclear fuel on earth to meet our current total energy demand for 1000 years. Ought to crack fusion by then.

      Connor O'BrienConnor O'Brien5 dni temu
    • That depends on what kind of improvements we get for nuclear power. It is estimated that we have around 200-250 years worth of Uranium in deposits large enough to extract. But that number is based on our current consumption rate where 10% of our current energy is from nuclear. So if we wanted 80% of our energy to come from nuclear then we would run out of Uranium in about 30 years.

  • Yes, I heard from the climate scientists that it isn't too late. That if we can achieve Carbon Neutral in the next 6 years and start reducing CO2 emission from there, we may save the Earth from turning into a "red planet" like Mars. So there is still hope. But we must act NOW! If we still have not obtained Carbon neutral state within that 6 years period, then we would have passed the point of no return, and the Earth will get hotter, and hotter, and hotter, and hotter, and there is no way to reverse it. That's the science. So we've got act NOW!!! .... the only problem is.... it was the year 1994 when I heard this. 27 years ago! lol

  • Hi from the UK 🇬🇧 😊 Absolutely loving the videos guys 👏 May I suggest an explanation of what the world would look like without the dependence on fossil fuels for energy? For example, if the world was forced to switch to renewable energy sources by the political powers of the world in response to climate change, or if we have depleted our fossil fuel reserves? After all, this future is inevitable. Although a potentially morbid subject, I personally believe such an explanation will dramatically help convince the world to take action in regards to global warming. I for one will be sharing it far and wide, as I have done with so many of your fantastically structured videos. Love y'all 💓 💕

    • No joke, the initial reason I questioned our economic system was that I couldn't reconcile climate change with our global inaction. I agree with you, I think that there is no way out of this global consumerist prisonner's dilemna without radical change. But I think that our societies will collapse into autocracy long before we abandon or reform (ha) capitalism. As climate, economic and social challenges keep rising during the next decades, we will further deprioritize climate action, as we are swamped in ressource wars, refugee crisis, bolstered fascist movements and so on.

I'm not saying it won't be hard and that many people will die as a result, but what I am saying is that it won't happen in the space of 2 years. It's literally impossible. Events such as Cyclones will grow as a result of more sea evaporation but they won't wipe out all of humanity in 2 years. Global warming affects take time!!!! no 2 years.

    • There's a saying, "no ethical consumption under capitalism." That means, as long as big corps like Amazon outsource to poor countries for cheap ass labor, there will never be a convenient and affordable way to buy things that you need without exploitation. Its POSSIBLE to avoid in lots of places, but that means buying $20 chocolate bars every time you want a snack to avoid funding slavery and giving up most of the produce you eat to avoid participating in the exploitation of people and land in poor countries. I'm sure you don't want to give up bananas or computer parts or foreign cars or spend $20 on a single bar every time you want chocolate, so its the responsibility of the people to start holding these big corporations accountable for what they do if we want to continue to have the luxuries we have without the awful guilt of supporting the horrors they commit

    Dodo MDodo M11 dni temu
    • @Dodo M no one is controlling the population directly. As countries develop, they experience a growth in population that stagnates once they fully develop. Hell, some developed countries are losing their population due to low birth rates. With proper management of our resources we won’t descend into chaos, making direct population control redundant. It’s a phenomenon called the demographic shift I’m pretty sure. It’s fascinating and it puts fear of overpopulation to rest.

    • @William Betford the climate has changed long before humans, sure. However, that change was incredibly gradual. The change we are imposing in a 100 years would take like 1000 or more naturally. Organisms have time to adapt to gradual climate change. Whenever a rapid shift in the climate would happen in the past, it was always some awful natural disaster, like a series of volcanic eruptions causing a volcanic winter. That kind of event would kill off droves of species. We are causing rapid heating of the planet, and it’s effects are already showing.

    • @William Betford if we reduce co2 emissions to net zero (which is very difficult but not impossible) the climate will gradually repair itself. Humans are responsible for rapid climate change, no doubt about it.

  • Once technology (robots+AI) and huge monopoly companies replace a big part of actual workforce and universal income apply, it can be based on emissions. The value of money might be related to how much we contaminate. Just one more stupid idea in a PLworld video comment section :)

  • I really love this video and the information but there are consequences to some of the solutions proposed if we enforce use of solar panels on housing and demand high energy efficiency the cost of housing will go up dramatically which is partly the reason why housing is so unbearably expensive in california. Also the thing is the cost of these policies will have to be taken up by middle or lower middle income households. As someone with a fair amount of privilege I feel like I cant in good conscience take away most peoples cars and houses the biggest problem in climate change is technological and economical it's easy for a well off Individual to demand better and blame companies while middle class get screwed over

    • @Lake McBride I appreciate your optimism. If anything a reduction in emissions is due to decreased activity during the pandemic, most likely temporary and will reverse as global activity regains momentum. From what I've observed, most people are too ignorant or naive to even think about changing their behaviors, let alone do so to a significant degree, and most governments seem either ineffective and/or corrupt, or in best case scenarios bureaucratic enough to stifle progress. Either the problem is imminent and life threatening and we need to change NOW!!! Or it is not and we won't disrupt our way of life. On a long enough timescale, The Earth will almost certainly become inhospitable, although granted that is a much longer timeline that poses any immediate Human risk I agree solar systems are not expanding. What I meant was that our expansion into them will continue to grow. There are plenty of industrialization opportunities to explore on Mars, or the moons of Jupiter/Saturn, as well as the asteroid belt, all of which we can exploit without directly altering Earth's climate.

      BACHOMPBACHOMP10 dni temu
    • @BACHOMP It's not too little too late, we're cutting down on emissions already, and we're innovating on clean tech right now. The Earth will not become inhospitable because of climate change, and in the end, we're just speeding up the recession from an ice age, and the Earth will recover from it soon, especially if we regulate and innovate. The real danger is not human extinction, but human suffering and the loss of other species. Also, solar systems are not expanding.

      Lake McBrideLake McBride10 dni temu
    • @Lake McBride Like I said, it's plan B, because people will not change enough required to fix global climate change. Run away greenhouse gas is an extinction level event, the people left behind are not likely to survive. As for the survivability in space, as well as procreation, well that's why we have to work on it. I'm all for Plan A: regulation and technological progress, but something tells me it's too little too late, so we should probably also consider alternative options. Personally, I'd rather Human+ technologies advance to the point where we are cybernetically modified enough that we can survive in almost any environment, including space, making the whole issue a moot point. At any rate, expansion into our solar system, and eventually the galaxy, is inevitable, assuming we can survive that long. It's definitely a ways off, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be working on it.

      BACHOMPBACHOMP10 dni temu
    • That literally doesn't fix anything. If you're just leaving a bunch of people on earth to continue furthering climate change, what good is a bunch of people in a spaceship going to do. This of course is brushing over the fact that only a few hundred people have ever flown in space, with 4-8 people in the same vessel at the same time. It's really just not possible, and not a good option when it would just be so much easier to just regulate and enforce climate laws, and innovating on things like clean concrete than it would be to have to come up with the tech to send a bunch of people into orbit. This is also brushing over the fact that it might not even be possible to procreate in 0g, and even if you can, the babies would come out horribly deformed and not at all suited to live on Earth again.

      Lake McBrideLake McBride10 dni temu
    • @Lake McBride There wouldn't be nearly all people on a spaceship. Only a tiny fraction of the most essential Humans, and enough genetic material to maintain a diverse breeding regimen. Everyone else would be left to try and survive in whatever dystopian wasteland the "not being able to regulate their citizens and industry" caused. More of a last ditch effort to save Humanity because our collective actions temporarily rendered our own home world unlivable.

Why is Kurzgesagt always optimistic ? cant they accept that we, has a species, are the worst creature that ever existed on this planet and that the sooner we disappear, the better ? Why do they keep bringing up this illusion that we'll tech our way out of all of this ? They are constantly saying "we can make this, we can make that", but have we done a single thing they said ? and the answer is a crystal clear : no. We're doomed and will see the collapse during our lifetime.

I wish I could do more than my family eating less meat or us using or buying less plastic but in my opinion if the more powerful people in our society don't step up then we have a doomed future.
