    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.
    www.gatesnotes.com/Climate-an...

    Since the Industrial Revolution, humans have released over 1.5 trillion tonnes of carbon dioxide or CO2 into the earth's atmosphere. In the year 2019 we were still pumping out around 37 billion more. That’s 50% more than the year 2000 and almost three times as much as 50 years ago. And it’s not just CO2. We’re also pumping out growing volumes of other greenhouse gases such as methane and nitrous oxide. Combining all of our greenhouse gases, we’re emitting 51 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents each year.
    And emissions keep rising - but they need to get down to 0!

The sad part is, in the west we have a lot of greener technology, and I know China is ramping up their development, because they need to with a massive population. As an example the west would need to have agreements in which they would assist developing countries and countries with big outputs to switch using the more advanced technologies. But I would never see anyone helping China with this because of America's ingrained hatred for them which is spawned for the governments, I suspect America doesn't want them to develop because they know they would overtake them in terms of production. And with a quarter of the world's people I think they would. So in conclusion we better start moving to venus or Mars because I don't think it's fair to say "stop developing your country and infrastructure" but helping the other countries out of it will be impossible because no one wants to share their power. And I get pissed off with people telling me to think of my carbon footprint.. When I live in Helsinki outskirts and can't even afford a dam car but I like to have a computer. Some people need to lose more because they can afford it, like the more wealthy. But I guess they are alright with it because it's not gun a happen In their lifetime or century xD

Great vid. Concisely explains fundamental issues in tackling global heating whilst short enough to maintain modern attention span. One point I would like discussed more often, when referring to yearly emissions, is scope 1,2 and 3 calculations and how that affects, even distorts relative contributions of each nation.

Also, we should not forget that nations like Germany reduced their carbon footprint by having their products produced in China because it was cheaper and environmental restrictions were less strict. So we put our debts in their hands and then blame then for the emissions. :-/

@Alpha Wolf That video just says that energy production with coal was increased to replace nuclear. But we didn't build any new plants for that. Factually, up until now we used gas, not coal. Now we switch to coal for a short time because of the gas crisis and then to renewables. Renawables made more than 40% of the energy mix in the past years, in some months even more than 60%. It could have been more if there wouldn't be some politicians who made building more renewable plants like wind parks and solar more difficult. So no, we still didn't build coal power plants to replace nuclear plants.

@Alpha Wolf We built one coal power plant in the last few years, which was stupid enough as it is, but not to replace nuclear energy. And we don't plan to build more. we're shutting down other coal plants too. The one that was build was to replace other coal power plants that were using a different kind of coal that's phased out sooner. Until 2038 all coal power plants are supposed to go offline.

At some point this was always going to happen. There's all this power available, so humans use it. Humans use to power to advance. By the time most societies are fairly advanced, some of the largest and most influential companies will inevitably be fossil fuel companies. However, it's not as though shareholders of fossil fuel companies are going to understand if Management decides to do the right thing and shift to renewables while competitors continue leveraging fossil fuels. As with unsustainable populations and consumption, this situation was always inevitable (barring more major extinction events).

@Jerry Hu You have to realise that China was opening massive numbers of coal-fired power stations though. Also their poverty is still huge, so of the 1.4 billion Chinese people not many can afford access to all of the resource intensive goods that Europe and America can use, yet. You also have to recognise that only 400 million people have a drivers license because the way you have to get it is through a raffle system. On top of this a million people die from China’s pollution in China each year. Also if you wanted to know the way that China’s poverty got reduced was by changing how poverty was counted: If you make $400 a year then you aren’t in poverty. Kurzegesagt kind of skipped over this fact, whether it was intentional or not i don’t know, but it does put China in a good light.

Nice video (I enjoy the animations and the style of this kind of infotainment) but too simple. Becoming carbon neutral e.g. via electric cars is not as environment friendly as it being advertised. Alternative technologies have their downsides. In Germany for example the shift to e-cars is one big greenwashing campaign and will mainly support the automobile industry. the production of batteries causes harm to already poor countries. It would be great if you could make a follow up video and discuss alternatives to CO2-intense productions. thank you

I’m Chinese. In fact, I think you’re right, but we can see from the data you gave that although China’s current carbon dioxide emissions are the highest or the highest in history, we can also see other things. In the data, China is very weak compared to Western countries. I am not interrupting the shirking of responsibility, but what I want to say is that we must be responsible for all of this, as you said: "This may be a stupid question." So if possible, I hope we can unite and fight against this "common enemy."(I'm using a translator to say it. After all, my English is bad enough, so I don’t know if you can understand some of them.)

Excellent video, how can we get more people to watch this video, understand the right context and facts. I'm reading a book now, " To rule the Waves" by Bruce Jones, it's about how superpowers have used their control of oceans to dominate trade and prosper. Western powers imposed trade in Asia with Naval power to expand market access and establish disproportionate prosperity with goods produced in the west. When industrialization shifted to East, the same trade channels enabled cheaper production in East for better quality of life around the world. We can't turn off the current trade channels now, we are stuck with it. It's a shared responsibility by the west and the east to avoid the peril ahead of us, no doubt!

If anything it is even more responsibility to act on correcting the irresponsible actions of the past. The descendants of major polluters of the past still bear their ancestors' responsibility to correct those mistakes. Especially if there was instances of wanton wastefulness. One example in many parts of Alberta's oil patch was the flaring of unwanted natural gas. I'm not talking about flaring sour gas to render is less dangerous, I'm talking about the stuff that is used as fuel, including at the time. The major issue is that there wasn't a delivery method in place to market so it was considered a waste product and burned at flaring sites just to get rid of it. This continued for decades, often never being corrected and only stopping when the companies in question went defunct. Just imaging the CO2 emissions that could have been avoided if that gas was instead captured and used thereby displacing extraction of other fuels. Especially if the emissions were made in stupidity, descendants of those people still bear historical responsibility.

Developed countries should take slightly more responsibilty by giving some grants and by sharing their technology in low cost with us so that developing countries generate less carbon dioxide. They just can not force us to reduce carbon emission without any type of help and facility.

Last year my class was looking at the climate change happening in BC. We got to talking about fairy creek, where protesters are defending the forests. Police have been illegally arresting people and protestors, and completely ignoring that these trees are so old. You see, the older a tree gets the more oxygen it emits. Because the older it gets, the more it understands the tree pollen language and the more it understands how to change carbon into oxygen. This also reduces the amount of carbon they make during the night. (Yeah, trees make carbon as well 💀) anyways, logging this huge old forest will have a huge effect on our land. And I raised my hand while we were talking and I said “I feel like the government needs to look into this. Because John Horgan seems to agree with the protestors, but is not putting up action to stop it. The government has no real initiative and is only trying to please all the people. Are we all really so incompetent that we can’t look at the facts and realize, that Canada was founded in 1870-1890. Our country is so new compared to every other country! So, how have we already extremely effected it’s climate? Is our country really that safe?” So, a super long argument about how stupid this was. Then this other kid raises his hand. He said this: “yeah but I literally don’t care about fairy creek, can we move on? Because this literally doesn’t affect me..” 🤡

Maybe looking at population size as well would be a better measure. China looks worse than the US but if you did it by Co2 per capita. The US would be worse. Nevertheless, blame games never work. Trying to blame a country into acting out of guilt never works. Instead we need people to find global solutions and just determine funding for these solutions.

Unfortunately time machines have not been invented yet, so it’s not possible for the developed world to just take over the climate issues, just like you cannot punish parties (be it individual or collectives) retroactively. Best thing the West can do is technological innovation. China and India are individually large enough markets to warrant products for them alone which invalidates the energy standard argument. There is no way for the US to reduce their historical emissions, but there absolutely a way for China and India to follow in the emissions reduction efforts they agreed to. Nuclear specifically is a great way to reduce reliance on fossil fuels but both of China and India build more coal power plants, while the West ties itself into pretzels in attempts to optimize away their “unnecessary” emissions, assuming we want to maintain any level of living standards

The United States has the greatest potential of the developed western nations to lead by example. So much energy is taken up by poor urban planning zoning, and car dependency that even reaching half of the european standard for transportation would dramatically cut US Greenhouse gas emissions.

Climate change, in my opinion, is a very broad topic. People point the finger at large corporations, the meat industry, and so on, but the truth is that everyone on the planet is to blame. The unfortunate fact about climate change is that there is no other way to stop climate change unless every single individual changes their lifestyle to help offset the impact of climate change by eating less meat, driving less, recycling, and so on. We've already ruined the planet beyond repair. Our way of life is so dependent on these environmental factors that in order to make a difference, we'd have to give up everything that makes our lives what they are.

US production has been gutted, this gives us an initiative to take those jobs back. I get that it's cheaper to export these industries but they're more of a pollutant when we send them offshore because we can turn our eyes away on safety, materials and method in exchange for a cut in costs.

simple answer: it doesn't matter. we all need to stop arguing over who started the fire and just work together to put it out, before it kills us all. rich and developed countries need to invest as much money as possible into developing better clean technologies to make them as cheap and efficient as possible, and then developing countries need to actually use that tech. rich countries do the development so that poor countries can do the installment. doesn't seem that complicated to me. i feel like the argument of responsibility isn't *really* trying to figure out who should fix the problem, its just an attempt to make sure that they *dont* have to do it. everyones trying to absolve themselves of fault, and thats the biggest problem, nobody *really* cares to just fix it. not world leaders at least, only civilians do, which cant do shit.

May I ask where was the emission logged, on the point of consumption or the point of production? Whose emission is the factory that produces for Western markets, but is located in China or India? Whose emission is the logistics via a Danish shipping company, ferrying goods from Indonesia to Canada? These are very significant methodological questions that at the very least should be transparent in the video, but preferably argued for/against.

It's a shame to have to include the fires in California in these statistics, seeing how Every One of the huge fires the area has experienced lately could All have been extremely limited instead of being so destructive, if only the absolute Morons in charge of the state would allow for firebreaks to be cut in the forests. Experience after Experience shows that the damage would have been lessened immensely, and the animals are not affected in any negative way...In fact, nature THRIVES in the places where we humans have cut firebreaks. Maybe if the People of California wake the F up and elect people with common sense, maybe, then they could go about NOT burning themselves out of their beautiful forests.

It makes perfect sense to me why nations literally founded on competition, greed, and conquest (as opposed to cooperation, sustainability, and peace) would be reluctant to cooperate globally for the benefit of all humanity. At some point, we're going to have to critically evaluate the foundations of our own culture and history, because it influences our actions and attitudes on the world.
