This video was supported by Gates Notes, the personal blog of Bill Gates, where he writes about global health, climate change, and more. Check out it out to learn more about ways the world can work together to reach zero greenhouse gas emissions:

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.

There should be a better explanation how exactly more CO2 in the atmosphere will cause more extreme weather. It's like the default notion with little explanation. But we know that current CO2 levels (415 ppm) are at relatively low point throughout the history of earth. Lowest was 180 ppm two million years ago and the highest 4,000 (that's 10 times more than now) 500 million years ago. And life was flourishing with highest CO2 levels in the atmosphere. So when we are talking about worse living conditions with increasing greenhouse gas, we have to ask - HOW MUCH worse and WHERE? I am not saying that we shouldn't care about our impact on the planet, but we have to use logic always. And the logic tells me that removing CO2 from the atmosphere can do more damage than doing nothing. CO2 is a vital nutrient for the plants, without it they just can't grow. So we have to be very careful with this technology.

@Shady Merchant if CO2 levels have no effect on plant growth, then why commercial greenhouses are buying CO2 gases and increasing levels of it inside to 1200 ppm (almost 3 times than we currently have in the atmosphere)? And while I am not sure if it's due to natural regrowth or us planting trees, but forest land is increasing. And we went back to 1999-2000 year level in the last few years after more than a decade of terrible deforestation. I really hope that this trend persists. And yeah, I agree with you on the last point.

The limiting factor for plant growth is ground nutrients not co2 increasing co2 doesn't help them Now if we planted more forests additional co2 would be beneficial but we aren't Also it isn't that the earth or life can't survive higher co2 its that we like the world as it is and don't want valuable coastal land swallowed up and animals and plants going extinct

Thank you for addressing the poor and developing nations. IMO many arguments feel like it comes from affluent people imposing lifestyle changes on others not so fortunate so it ends up looking like a big city dweller wants others to eat less meat and not drive a car so that THEY fan have a nice green forest to hike in when after they get off their Starbucks MacBook Tesla. I do see the opinion solution and I hear it, though I worry about centralized solutions because on size fits all in my opinion doesn't work. So add this to the individual cannot dent in he issue so maybe take a step up but not all the way up. So decentralized communities can handle it on their own and we can see what works where and collaborate. In the US, the states are supposed to be 50 petri dishes to see which policies work so I he growing centralization will give us less solutions as more power is gained for individuals.

If the troposphere is trapping and retaining more heat, how do you explain Antarctica enduring it's coldest few months on record? I already know the answer to this question, but it underlies an exchange that we barely know anything about or can even proclaim to understand. This exchange is the most probable thing that will most likely prevent the catastrophic climate change that current models predict.
phreatomagmatic 4 gün əvvəl
@TheAdvertisement It's what is known as a SSW or sudden stratospheric warming. When taking the whole climate into consideration, there are no long term temperature records. We are lucky that the temperature of our planet is regulated by the huge body of water that covers around 70% of the Earth's surface. Now if the troposphere does continue to retain more heat, that should in theory lead to an increase in evaporation in turn creating more cloud cover thus reducing uv levels reaching the Earth's surface. All in all a warmer, cloudier more humid world but not the catastrophe that some are predicting.

Otherwise it is business as usual and the complete extinction of the human race in 10 years. This video assumes that the corporate watered down IPCC is giving us accurate information.

Most people who claim to strongly believe climate change needs immediate action don't make any efforts to lower their own carbon footprint. That is why personal responsibility is important, to lead others by example. That's why I take climate change as serious as the private jet flying politicians that grandstand on it.
Jeren Steffen
Jeren Steffen 3 gün əvvəl
@TheAdvertisement Individual responsibility is about much more than just the direct impact. 1) More market demand lowers cost due to scale. Increasing accessibility. 2) The process of turning your theories into reality gives you a ton of perspective. 3) Leading by example persuades others to join in. 4) Most importantly, it exposes all the authoritarian hypocrites who don't actually give a dam. If everyone who claims they believe climate change is a serious concern actually acted as such, the problem would be solved in short time without involving governernment. Instead of going out to eat, but a solar panel. Quit your job and work for a greener company, then the non green companies will conform or collapse.

Dear Kurzgesagt This is a brilliant and informative video. Thank you. I won't comment on the positives other than your way presenting the big picture, along with stastictics comparing industries is amazing! There one striking error, in my opinion, which I'd like to raise: You present a confusing, contradictory message on individual responsibility: One the one hand, you suggest can have no impact, but you then correctly encourage better consumer choices, and correctly suggest reduction and life style change on the part of the consumers in affluent societies. Urm. Huh? The whole point about 'individual choice' is that it isn't individual. This is like voting. The whole idea is that it only works when everyone knows that one vote makes no difference but realises that everyone voting makes all the difference. As we learnt from Monthy Python's Life of Brian: There isn't really such thing as an isolated individual. That is a consumerist myth. You mention pressuring big industry to change. If big industry changes, so will individual life styles. You correctly point out that this might annoy some people. You fail to raise the point that the very same people complaining about fossil fuels will not want to change their lives in the way that will necessarily happen if the fossil fuel industry collapses or is replaced. The whole debate on Individual VS Industry is a FALSE DICHOTOMY. Individuals work for, consumer, manage, and prop up industry. Industry depends on individuals. You actually makes the very same point when you suggest that consumer behaviour will motivate industry to change. So this clashes with your strange logical sequence of comparing one persons life time carbon output with the entirety of all industry. Because you later then make the very valid point that our behaviour influences others. I submit that having people in not only rich countries, but in the growing middle/upper classes of poorer countries become more self aware, perhaps be influenced by a little healthy dose of "guilt" (heaven forbid) is a good thing. You cannot thinking of others suffering (people or animals/eco systems) without feeling some guilt or anger which then motivates you to change or act. This can be encourage at the SAME TIME as encouraging huge focus on systemic change. Because the two are the same thing. Eternal apologies for this lengthy rant and all of the carbon i emitted while typing it on my computer, and having it take up space on a youtube server somewhere :-) Much love and keep up the amazing work!

Ive always tried my best in personal responsibility, and once i have passed my driving test i intend to invest in an electric vehicle, as you stated yeah maybe it’ll be a bit more pricey. But it will be worth it. And also credit plans exist lol. But this has changed my view on who to vote for, and i will actively be looking for an MP to vote for who will take this into account. Also, While a lot of meat production is responsible. Is the Fishing industry also part of this? Im curious due to my preference of white meat or fish (im not a massive fan of red meat anyway..)

I have just accepted humans will not fix this problem. Mother nature will. Eventually this planet will not be habitual for humans, 5,000 years later animals will be living in our old buildings

It is strange that if atmospheric carbon dioxide increases from 0.03% to 0.04%, the temperature will rise or not, or no one will experiment in a closed laboratory.

Yeah but unfortunately there are a few issues with this hydrocephalus and LMC which were both genetic on my father's side and every single other female that's had these disabilities haven't lived passed since the age of two years old and so far as I know of I'm the only one that has and trust me living with these disabilities are p in the park if you ask me they're not exactly easy to deal with so unfortunately I have to keep finding ways to make things much easier until there's a cure for these issues which sadly I do not believe there is ever going to be. Not saying that I lost hoped but I'm just trying to do things the way I can for now until I can find some form of a possible cure even if it takes an eternity

For capturing CO2, what about an available working cheap technology which worked for millions of years called "a tree"? Plant and bacteria are the best, and cheapest technologies we have to absorbe CO2, why rely on human technologies which create more garbage ?

Trees only capture CO2 when they are growing, and new growth forests are surprising difficult to establish and maintain.

There could be a systemic solution, but we won't deliver it on time. Just embrace the fact that doom is inevitable.

If all industries reverse planned obsolesence and make things that last like they used to many decades ago, then we have a chance. But all corporations want to do in every industry is make more and more $$$$ and pay their CEOs billions collectively for destroying the planet.

I believe the best way to fix climate change is complete deindustrialization and a spartan lifestyle.

Or let's stop making babies! Progressively, but fast enough to reduce the world's population to 1 billion in a few dozens of years and ideally much much lower. With all the technologies available today those last hundreds of thousands will be the happiest humanity we ever seen in history. The climate change will be slow down enough to provide enough time for long term solutions to shine. The problems of this solution are: 1. It must be a world wide rule to follow and the humanity is completely split apart 2. Almost nobody accepts this idea and especially the government (in general), because population growth maintains profit growth for elites and social instability and inequality which facilitate the "crowd control" 3. We have to find a proper economical solution to maintain the comfort life for the quickly aging population 4. People are dumb and overpopulation is very often a taboo subject anyway because: reasons
