A powerful trick is forcing governments to keep quiet about a toxic threat that’s killing more than Coronavirus. Voiced by Stephen Fry

Wait a sec, What happened to the „mini ice age” the warned us about in the 70s?

The meat and dairy industries, the biggest polluters, the biggest contribution to deforestation, the driving force of species extinction and the most aggressively protected.

15:38 I would guess building a hundreds of miles long hyperloop out of steel or aluminium (or whatever they are building it out of) will use absurd amounts of energy too. – That’s exactly the point again: We need less personal travel – not more, less use of energy per capita! And people have to be willing able to renounce this personal freedom on their own. – This hyperloop thing will be rich kids next toy to play with, the next stage of jet-setting: and people will kiss Elons ass in return for awesome he is and all for again saving the planet. God, I’m so sick of this sh*t…

It’s good seeing this. Here in The Netherlands we are paying billions and billions of subsidized tax Euros for burning biomass, and these liberal/left leaning politicians who are currently in power, claim they care about the environment have no problem with this. In fact, they promote it. It’s absolutely terrible. Terrible for the environment, terrible for air quality, terrible for wildlife, terrible for public health, etc. Experts and scientists have raised the alarm for a long time now that this is a terrible decision, but these politicians who claim they are a lot, don’t care at all. And the green energy that we DO generate, is bought up by multinational corporations such as Microsoft and Google for their enormous data centers.

He talked a load of crap. Don’t believe it. Look up TONY HELLER on You Tube. Watch a few of his videaos before you make up your mind about this one. Seriously this video is a lie fest…

Chris Bakke
@Gramil Wolf Can you back up any of what you just said?

Gramil Wolf
@Chris Bakke Whatever I say you should take as a starter. Don’t believe me or anyone until you find out BOTH sides of the argument. Then you make up your own mind. Climate science is a trillion dollar industry for those predicting doom. Make the effort. Don’t believe at face value. Do the work!

Jeroen Kampen
@Gramil Wolf I’ve watched him, sorry to break it but he’s simply not including the full picture in many of his videos. Must admit he does his research and using a lot of correct information but ultimately draws wrong conclusions and downplaying the possible outcomes of this period of rapid climate change. But it’s good to have critical thinkers like him so we don’t make these stupid mistakes like EU subsidized bio-fuels and biowaste.

The film references Michael Moore’s film Planet of The Humans, which claims that renewable energy isn’t the answer to climate change. We don’t point out all the problems with the film, so if you watch it, we recommend checking the facts via independent sources.

Global CO2 emissions have risen dramatically:

Scientists expect a 3 degree temperature increase will happen even if countries meet their commitments under the Paris climate agreement.

When trees are burnt, they release a lot of CO2. The idea is to absorb it with new trees, but studies show that this would take around 40-100 years. Study by Stanford University, published in Nature Communications.

200 scientists wrote to the EU, warning that wood creates more emissions than coal, because it’s less efficient to process. Biofuel is not the answer to climate change.

Renewable energy sources emit up to 50g of C02 per kWh, over their lifetime, compared to around 1000g for coal and 475 for natural gas.
