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.

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.

I agree with most of the topics about how to prevent climate change, including more reasonable meat consumption, but I disagree about one thing. You've said, that we could use the land, that is used for meat production, in another way, but most of the farmlands are situated in places full of rocks, where trees don't grow that often, and if sheep or cows are not going to be fed there, that won't change the situation there. But I'm not talking about mass production and unreasonable consumption, just about middle-sized farms. Nevertheless, thank you for a wonderful work

It would have been better if the presentation addressed the possibility that anthropogenic climate change is not the issue. After all, the "experts" predicted an ice age, then global warming, then large swathes of the earth (eg Florida) under water by 2016 plus the complete disappearance of the north polar ice cap in summer (there are millions of tons of new ice since that prediction). In the last 40 years EVERY prediction has been wrong by a country mile, the climate models are in error by 400% and cannot even predict the regular seasonal weather changes!

There is one part of this video that needs to break down and be explained. For developing places to "consume" the local forest isn't just consuming the forest. It's extremely well planned out, using rotations to make sure the supply can always maintain regrowth. Typically most are done in tree farms which are given 10 years to regrow. While working around wild life and working hard to reestablish that part of the forest. As well, the land is given extreme care because, well that's the fuel supply. Run out and no more supply. In turn these 10 year regrowth have captured tons of carbon because trees grab more carbon during their growth period than when they reach the "elder" years. Also to add, most forest is a competition for new trees to grow. Adult trees kill off sprouts by way of shade. A tree farm offers trees more land and sunlight to regrow, get this neat turn of events, more trees. It's rather cool imo.

TL:DR: Lets raise taxes for everyone, ban meat and plastic straws! Lets ban every way of innovation for the transport and food industry! At least, that's how i imagine most politicians have reacted thus far. Really. Innovation, not banning or taxing people to death, will get us out of this. It's the companies that need to find better ways. Meat is fine, just make it more sustainable. There's a technical solution to everything.

Greenhouse gases emissions are only the tip of the iceberg that is all the problems we are causing to our environment. We're going to need to choose, in the near future, if we want to keep growing in resource consumption or if we are going to stop growing. The first option is possible only if we start to explore the resources of our solar system.

A couple things that weren't mentioned in the video. Just a reminder that battery-powered electric cars only present a lower impact than traditional thermal cars if we ONLY base our claim on CO2 emissions, AND if we keep the car long enough such that the CO2 savings from driving it counteract the emissions from its manufacturing (AKA not really that much better). What CAN have more impact than the purchase and use of an electrical car is to purchase a 2nd hand car (even gas-powered), such that you do not affect demand and so do not trigger the manufacturing of a new car. Not buying a tank (like an SUV) or a frikin aircraft carrier (like a pickup truck) but getting something of a normal size also helps. Rent a truck on specific days instead if you really need one. These precautions will save you significant money as well as lower your emissions if you really have to drive.

Ok here is something else that is not mentioned but electric cars are hugely environmentally costly due to the metals necessary for the batteries and the gas emissions emitted to create them is huge too. So if you already have a thermic car that works fine and will for years to come but you throw it away to get an electric car you've just undone any gas emissions savings you would have had added to the emissions. This really is not talked about enough. Greenhouse gas wise, you are better off driving your gas car until it can't go anymore before buying an electric. We really need nuanced discussions in this. Not to mention those who must rely on cars are usually those in the lowest income brackets and therefore unable to afford an electric car!
hooplehead101 Prije 21 sat
"This really is not talked about enough." Actually, in every f video that mentions electric cars even only as an aside for half a second, dozens of people like you come along and claim that "it isnt talked about enough". And when doing so, often argumenting - like you - against strawmen and not assessing the latest scientific facts. So, strawman: "So if you already have a thermic car that works fine" then scientists WONT SAY you always, immediately, need an electric car. So, assessing latest facts: However, this "Greenhouse gas wise, you are better off driving your gas car until it can't go anymore before buying an electric." is also not universally true, but depends on various factors: How long would you drive the combustion car? How much emissions will be generated by producing above all the battery of the alectric car (this depends on the size and production method)? How much do both cars consume, in l/100km or kWh/100km? And how green is the electricity you use for charging your car? All these factors decide, when it will be better to change to an electric car. Two give two extremes: If you would buy a huge battery car, produced in China with coaly electricity, and drive it in Poland, with coaly electricity, and your current car is a very economical one that will only last four more years - youd be better off continuing to drive it for those four years. Otoh, if you drive a wasting 9l/100km car, but would change to a medium to small battery, produced by a sizable portion of green electricity, and charge it via a green-heavy electricity or even own PV panels on your roof or at your employer - then, greenhouse gas wise, it is better to change asap.

Ok you all, i really don't like it when you are not honest. Yes meat is only 37 percent of food calories. But you are ignoring important data which changes the analysis to be the opposite. Humans must have protein to live. 1, 3oz piece of beef gives 22 to 25 grams of protein depending on the source (google calculator usda and the beef council). To equal this you would have to eat 5.81, so basically, 6 cups of rice to get this same amount of protein! Yet rice equals the same output of greenhouse gasses as all the air traffic in the world according to your video. And that is at current consumption. If the world went vegan it would take so much land, water and greenhouse gasses to feed them, that our emissions would probably triple or quadruple. Not to mention other things that must be consumed in addition to the rice since it lacks vitamins and is not a complete protein. So you say, ok let's eat a different grain like quinoia, it's higher in protein. It still takes 3 cups to get the same protien as a 3oz piece of beef, so you are still going to have to at least double emissions to feed the world with it. In addition it also is not a complete protien so it will require vitamin pills and other foods to sustain humans. The amount of water needed to create the protein in 3oz of beef vs that need to get the same in a grain sources of protein such as rice or quinoia is minimal comparatively speaking and the same applies for the amount of land necessary to produce enough grains to feed the world. So beef would save on clearing away forests to grow grains. Beef saves on water consumption too since the water oer acre spent on beef is dramatically less than that spent on rice or other grains. And one aspect never talked about is that raising beef provides us with a way to trap greenhouse gasses since the fields of grass that the cows eat scrubs gasses, traps it in thier leaves then the cows eat it and it is trapped in thier muscles. In fact grass fed beef is methane negative as more is scrubbed out than what is burped out. So i must say i find your video disingenuous and i really dislike that you are refusing to present all the data in order to push your agenda. You said in the video we need more nuanced discussions and you didn't even do it yourself. The video has so many other good points it is a shame to ruin it by hiding data that does not fit your ideal.
hooplehead101 Prije 17 sati
To cut it short: Scientists have calculated all of the topics you as a layman have written about. And theve come to the conclusion that even when considering or comparing protein, plant protein trumps animal protein in greenhouse gases reduction manifold. For example: Per 100g protein, tofu emits 1.6kg CO2 eq. Beef in dairy herds 10, in free beef herds 25. So 6 to 15 times more! This topic has even made it into wikipedia articles, so you wouldnt have needed to do "original research" aka simply claiming something based on completely nonsensical comparisons (who would want to get protein via rice, and why didnt you use acutal numbers from beef emissions - instead claiming one would have to eat quadruple the rice as today???). "ourworldindata" has it nicely illustrated by charts, too.

@Show Me What You Got We are not headed into an ice, we are in an ice age. It is called the Quaternary ice age and it has lasted 2.6 million years so far. And the biggest mass extinctions on Earth has been because of high temperatures.

@Bluesbr0ther "Supposed to be lower in an Ice Age" Do you understand how ridiculous that statement is? It is not "supposed" to be anything. The correlation between low CO2 and ice ages is that the Ice Ages run out of control and lead to extinction events called "snowball earths" which last for millions of years when CO2 is low. Low CO2 and Ice Age mean mass extinction. Care to rethink your ideas yet? WHAT PRECISELY is the correct CO2 level to maintain a habitable biosphere? Not "whatever blah blah I hate people". You understand it is not just humans at stake here right? It is not just an exercise in hating people. The land surface of the earth is already 33% complete desert. The CO2 is clearly dangerously low. And you are right, we are headed into an ice age. Now think about how low CO2 and an ice age together cause massive extinction events.
Bluesbr0ther Prije 18 sati
@Show Me What You Got The reason CO2 is supposed to be lower during an ice age is because cold water can absorb more CO2 than warm water.

That means building more roads, more houses, etc; more pollution. All for the sake of the economy. There is nothing wrong with a shrinking birth rate. It's the right thing. But when it comes to saving the planet, politicians just give lip service.

climate change needs to be a union issue. climate strikes need to be industrial general strikes. voting once every four years isn't going to help much. but an international union movement could change things much more rapidly and with the majority of people involved who will actually be affected by the impacts of climate change the most.

Another solution is education, I suspect. Loaded subject, but if we make the next gen be capable and content with low-emition technologies then perhaps it'll be easier to even care to be green.

So what is the right CO2 level? Too high is not an answer. CO2 levels are historically extremely low, not high. They used to be 14x higher.

@Dundoril Sorry. Wrong again. Searching for both optimal and truth on sciencedirect give tens of thousands of hits for each. I guess that kinda makes them scientific terms, huh? "Dr. Vincent Gray on historical carbon dioxide levels" is what you want to locate to get the graph I am looking at. Dude, just admit it. You were brainwashed and now you are learning the truth. Not a single simple question can be answered by the dogma. How much CO2 is the right amount? You are being lied to for money and control.

@Show Me What You Got I have no idea what graph you are looking at. Can you give a paper anime and a author ? Sorry but optimal and truth are not really scientific terms at all. You just make up a metric which is impossible to fullfill

@Dundoril Dude I am literally looking at a chart of CO2 levels during that time frame. Please stop making stuff up. Other than that fabrication all you did was circle talk without refuting a point I made. You know I am right. Until you can provide factual data on what the optimal CO2 level is to support earth's biosphere happens to be, go back from whence you came. And the thing, is, if there is any rational bone in your body, I have already converted you to the actual truth. And you are going to be angry when you figure out they are only lying to you for money and power.

@Show Me What You Got " CO2 levels spiked on the break up of Pangea. Its existence "as a desert", in your words, coincided with low CO2 levels of 200ppm." Thats just not true. Pangea existed between 300 million and 150 million years ago. Even looking at the rather laughable C.R. Scotese, who just put together from two sources which both stated that CO2 causes cliamte change, its clear that CO2 levels were above 2500 ppm for most of this time period. "Again, CO2 was literally 14x higher in the past." Yes do you think that repeating this will turn it in an argument? "o now we have your own statements indicating low CO2 causes a desert" No i said not such thing. Logic is not you thing is it? "The Holocene era is literally only 11,000 years. " Yes and yet all of modern human civilisaion developed there " That is your baseline for 4 billion years of earth's often inhabited history? " No its my baseline for the kind of climate in which human thrived "You ask why should deserts be considered bad?" I do not ask something like that. "You are repeating slogans" No i make argument which you ignore "You never bothered to ask what the right numbers should be. " I already gave you an answer. You did not like it

@Dundoril Your invented facts are utterly absurd. Naturally, you are wrong again. CO2 levels spiked on the break up of Pangea. Its existence "as a desert", in your words, coincided with low CO2 levels of 200ppm. Again, CO2 was literally 14x higher in the past. So now we have your own statements indicating low CO2 causes a desert. And of course you statement that CO2 levels have ever been stable is utterly ignorant. The Holocene era is literally only 11,000 years. LOL. That is your baseline for 4 billion years of earth's often inhabited history? Now answer the question, what are the scientifically correct CO2 levels? You ask why should deserts be considered bad? You mean why should we look at giant GROWING dead zones as a problem? Is that a serious question? What about lifeless rocks says "fantastic biosphere to you". You are repeating slogans, and now making stuff up because your position is not supportable. You never bothered to ask what the right numbers should be. And I get it. You have been lied to so people can control you. So why don;t you go ask them what the right CO2 level is. Then as they stutter and stammer, and make nonsense up, you can laugh in their faces like I am laughing in yours.

@Oog Sure. When you make a prediction based on a theory, i think you call it "AGW theory" & that prediction doesn't happen, then the theory is junk. It could be that the "scientist" making the prediction is incompetent but there are so many, it's like a prediction industry!! i'll call them 'guys in lab coats' making erroneous predictions that, i mean at least a few have to be competent, right? & they have been making erroneous predictions for decades, this is undeniable. So, the theory is junk. So, like a famous prediction was the north pole ice free by 2013. WRONG!! It only takes ONE wrong prediction to invalidate a theory.

It's complex, but doable. The real problem is that we are not even close to doable and changes in climate are going to get much worse, faster, until we hit the tipping points and move forward into a hot house earth. it's not going wait while we dither over what we need to do! In the last thirty years we have not even peaked the emissions, they are still rising! If the hockey stick rise is the best we can do in thirty years then we have to face the end game or leadership truly take it seriously as the most dia crisis mankind has ever faced, which it is, or they can carry on kicking the can down the road as has happened until now! Now we may still have a chance to make the right choices. But the window of choices is closing and if it closes, we will lose the choice to do what is needed and the hot house earth will occur whatever we do! No scientists can tell us when the window will close but why do we want to gamble with mankind's very existence? XR maybe the only sane people in an insane world!!🌎! We have to stop paying lipservice to it and really tackle it or go the way of the dinosaurs 🦕. The difference being with us is it will be self inflicted and the age of intelligent/stupid will be over! The planet will regenerate to a new phase and a blip in mankind's existence on this planet will be history. If we end up a blip in the billions of years of the life of this world then what's the chances of meeting another blip of intelligent life light years away?

spiderlime Prije dan
there is a huge difference between actual solutions and the eco-cult: solutions are based on the belief that human and civil rights should be defended, as wele as the preservation of the world's intellectual and cultural legacies. the eco-cult on the other hand believes that humanity is the enemy that deserves to die. our very lives depend on food, travel, commerce, and electricity, to the extent that disrupting them may result in loss of life. bill gates is the last person on earth who has a moral right to preach to "lesser mortals:"about the environment, or anything else.

Life is too short for many individuals to focus much on the long term effects of climate change. We are just inherently selfish & cheap to a degree for our lifestyles and that's very hard to change if you don't have a passion for such subject.

I absolutely love the message of this video. Yes, one's carbon footprint builds up over the billions of people in the world, and you can do your small part to help. However, the blame and guilt shouldn't be on you. It should be on everyone. It should be on corporations, on the governments keeping the world like this. _Everyone,_ needs to work to make the world better. You can't do it alone.
