  1. 11:30 yes but that's so misleading. Do the maths. If everyone on earth did that (which is entirely unrealistic, I know) we would offset about 230 years of global emissions. Even if an international group of people the size of the population of the US (only about 5.5% of the global population) stopped emitting, it would save 10 years worth of GLOBAL emissions (using kurzgesagt's logic).

  2. So many things in this video are wrong and/or misleading. For example, throughout this entire video, they present the idea that there's nothing we can do except ask the big emitting companies to stop and that they're trying to make us change our lifestyle and shifting the blame to us. This is really damaging because the only reasons these big companies that emit lots of carbon dioxide is to meet the needs of our lifestyles. They don't just pump CO2 into the atmosphere because they want to – they do it because it makes them lots of money, which we are giving to them in exchange for luxury goods and services. So really what this video should be about is all the most effective ways we can change our lifestyles to slow down climate change. It's so strange how he pretty much said that you shouldn't feel pressured to double glaze your windows after having said that running our homes is a little-known huge part of global emissions (much of which is simply heating old, poorly insulated homes with single glazed windows).

  4. Can you stop solar flares? CMEs? The earths magnetic field has reduced 25% in the past 20years.

    We just got hit by CMEs in mid November, the largest one ever recorded, followed by volcano disasters and extreme weather.

    When will United Nations include space weather in the climate model?

  5. An electric car is not cleaner than a gasoline one for its entire service life. And if you consider that not all countries get electricity from renewable sources …

  6. I used to be a hardcore advocate for the environment, but after I realized 90% of the people I met didn't care and 98% of people aren't even taking small actions to reduce waste, I gave up. It's not my responsibility to fix the planet. Humans are parasitic and we will consume, exploit, and destroy everything in our quest for godhood. And when all the water is poisoned and all the trees are gone, we'll destroy ourselves, finally. And the world will breathe a sigh of relief and start over.

  7. great video but it I think the part with the electric car isn't showing the real problem with cars. You showed it in the video that the production of a car is a big factor too so you shouldnt switch your car because electric energy is produced with coal too and if you switch your car to an electric one you would throw away a car which got produced with very much energy too wich would be a big waste of energy. So I would say, keep your old car as long as possible and drive it as less as possible.
    I think a new green climate neutral fuel which is compatible with older cars would be great

  8. Voting and spending differently is just a drop in the bucket. Ultimately the only way to put real pressure is through:

    1) Massive people's movements, the biggest in history

    2) Brave individuals willing to risk prison by stopping the machine with their bodies

    To stop the machine you have to actually stop you'll never get their attention by yelling at them in the freedom of speech zone

  9. Climate change has been happening 4.5 billion years long before man and will continue to change long softer man is gone. The idea man can do anything about it is ridiculous.

  10. It's hard to cut it when even your own family or people around you don't support it. They always says "Others are also doing it, what can you do about it? Since others are doing it, what difference does it make if I also do it?" to justify it ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

  11. I work with aftertreatment on vehicles (reducing emissions on them). But tackling cimate change via electric cars will probably end with my current job and also field of mechanical engineers into combustion engines. So ironacly I work contributing with what will problably end my job

  12. Please stop talking about getting an electric car as being somenthing that could change the world – i agree with most of what you say in this video, but electric cars are not in any way a solution or something we should "invest" in. what really needs to happen is to make walkable cities and neighbourhoods and build and provide good public transport grids and disincentivise all car use.
    Electric cars only even make sense after about 100.000km driven, because they are so much more polluting in their production process than gas cars. It can actually be better to buy a used gas car than an all new lithium-ion-battery e-car (but thats a whole different topic).
    In general, individual car use is something that everyone should start to think critically about by now, because it has so many negative impacts on so many levels.

    – Cars take away a huge amount of usable space, while mostly just standing around.
    – An extreme amount of public places are just made for cars and can only(!) be used if you are sitting in one.
    – You drag around 2 tons of metal everywhere you go, while mostly driving alone – that in itself is extremely inefficient.
    – Pollution, CO2, Health-Risks for Humans from all sorts of chemicals that get emmited by burning gasoline.
    – Accindents.
    – Noise pollution.
    – Isolation from your surroundings.
    – Stress.
    and the list could go on for paragraphs.

    Please Kurzgesagt, I beg you, start talking about the importance of public transit in future videos, and stop insinuating that buying an electric car could in any way be a viable part of the solution to climate change.

  13. This is such an important video for everyone to see. Honestly one of the best videos on climate change ever and this needs to get into the algorithm. Brilliant work Kurzgesagt.
