  • Sponsor didn’t age well

  • So I guess buying up all the land in the US and investing in fake processed meat helps right?

  • Bill and Melinda seem like a nice couple, hope they never get divorced.

  • The vast majority of plastic waste in the ocean is broken nets and other fishing gear

  • That sponsorship didn’t age well

  • Bill and Melinda gates a big yikes now

  • Bill and Melinda seem nice, I wonder how they're doing right now.

  • Ah, this ad didn’t age well at all

  • well, that sponsor aged well now didn't it?

  • Beef is big c02 I stopped eating it

  • All my electricity is hydroelectricity

  • Probably just Bill Gates now.

  • This isn't sponsored by Express??? My life is a lie

  • I got this recommend after the divorce. EEclone you sick freak

  • So 600 W for a regular computer and 1500 W for a nice one. Hmm, I don't know about that. :D

  • Ah what an interesting sponsor deal, I hope it keeps growing and doesn't split up or anything! :D

  • What a day to hear sponsored by the bill and melinda foundation

  • RIP Bill and Melinda Gates

    • They didn't die they just divorced. And they're still co-workers.

  • ...and melinda gates lol

  • the Bill and Melinda joke aged well

  • Bill and Melinda are so great together I hope they don’t slip up

    • Or commit mass genoc- I mean mass live saving events

  • Bill and malinda gates? Not anymore since Wednesday

  • This sponsorship didn't age well

  • Divorced :(

  • and now they're divorced

  • If you are concerned about your straw killing a turtle, just don't use a straw at all, they aren't needed, sipping is fine.

  • This was recommended to me right after the Bill and Melinda Gates divorce announcement. Yikes.

  • A condom saves 58 tonnes a year! Not having any kids saves more in emissions than anything else you can do.

  • Throughout the whole video, i thought the bill gates sponsor was just a joke.... Apparently not

  • 1:56 that joke caught me so off guard that i spit out my tea 😂

  • Given current statements you could do a video on how vaccines were invented and how thier made

  • Let's start the "who's here after they devorced?" comment

    • Let’s not

  • I’d be interested in seeing where building and moving a wind turbine fits into the CO2 scale

  • Hahahaha bill and Melinda gate are getting devorced

  • and the sponsor is now more relevant than ever.

  • Oh no. They broke up

  • or just go vegan.

    • no but really tho, cattles are responsible for like 40% of ALL carbon released into the atmosphere every year and most of the water waste as well just cattles.

  • So if a 100W bulb being on for 24h "creates" 1kg of CO² and a "work PC" does 2kg per 8h that means that said PC sucks in an astonishing 600 fucking Watts. Even a proper gaming PC does barely half of that. This video is utter BS. On top of that the "gamer PC" comes out to 1500W which is just an absolute joke. P S Oven is apparently 24kW ahahahhahah

  • My biggest flex is that I live in a carbon negative country

  • Looking at new comments make me thankful i dont live in America. I couldnt put up with all these numbskulls

  • Yes but how much carbon does it take to feed an oak tree. Also one volcano erruption or a forest fire 🔥 what are those emission numbers?

  • All Canadians school portraits are drawn in MS paint.

  • 1:01 why tf is Estonia so high on CO2 omissions?

  • Link to the letter do not work.

  • Best solution would be manufacturer everything outside of earth basically. Go to the moon or mars and used the hallow planets for manufacturing.

  • Also another thing Efficiency means NOTHING. Name 1 job that is extremely efficient at everything. I can tell you leaving efficiency to a corporation means The big yellow tape of corporate bureaucracy takes over making it the least efficient thing you can take place.

  • I'd argue No. the cost to maintain and make those renewable harvesters Cost in Co2 and generally what they output isn't = to 0 sure it can be lowered but you'd also forget TRANSPORTATION those heavy ass trucks and ships and planes Spew out Co2 and the more we ship things across the world the more likely it will cost more to make. Hate to break it to you but most of the iron metal comes from CHINA. which means you have to calculate all those shipping cost in Co2 to ship it to the US into those renewable energy even if we move all out fossil fuels to renewable the cost of gasoline spewing out CO2 Just outputs heavily vs burning the fuel.

  • I died at the "thoughts and prayers" for the koalas 😅😅😅😅

  • We consume way too much of everything, Even things we don't actually need which creates an overflow of...everything. Which all is involved in a lot of money and jobs. Like wonder how long everyone that has a phone would still have a phone if everyone who makes phones, stopped making phones. Theres probably enough phones just in storage and dumpsters for everyone who already has a phone to break 2 phones and still have a replacement phone.

  • All this is nice until you realize the majority of pollution is from big companies, and being a good samaritan is just brownie points.

    • Basically. It's because corporations are not efficient. I can tell you working for 4 of them. Each one has major inefficiency.

  • Pedro

  • Damn Bill Gate’s private plane just doesn’t exist ig

  • Dont get kids to inherit some fucked up world. Also: Shower 10 minutes less! If only 6 people do it, i can shower for an hour

  • One thing everybody can do that easily scales high? Cutting animal products.

  • So you learned a lot from Bill and Melinda Gates Communist Manifesto? Apparently not because you're too stupid to realize that electric cars require carbon to generate the electricity needed for them.

    • Indeed they do, but they're still far more efficient. Also, communist? What type of crack are you smoking?

    • I wish Bill Gates was more of a communist than a neoliberal shill more concerned with vaccine patents than human lives, but you tried at least a little so have a gold 🌟.

    • yes, that is why we should abolish coal, oil and gas power

  • Damn was so good explained , was expecting you to say to not do shit because it's Bad for the planet but no

  • 2:27 this hit a little too close to home

  • Have you look at diet?

  • Go Nuclear

  • Good thing I'm from France and our electricity comes from nuclear energy cause my pc runs 20 out of 24h

  • so weird thing my teacher used this video for sentance structure, it was pretty lit

  • Why didn’t you mention livestock? It’s a much bigger issue in terms of CO2 emissions than all the things you mentioned.

  • My name is Melinda and every time he said Melinda I freaked out.

  • lmao rip i guess humanity is screwed

  • Funny of you to think that someone would sleep with you and have kids Lmao

  • this video should be compulsory for everyone. also the link doesnt seem to be working

  • What about the huge footprint causes by eating meat? I don't understand why he didnt mention this extremely impacting topic

  • The solution to all of the carbon emissions is a carbon tax. A carbon tax on all carbon taken out of the ground would encourage companies to use less carbon in manufacturing products like computers cars and electricity. We could then use the proceeds of the carbon tax to remove carbon from the air, it will be a few years before carbon capture is cheap enough but if we have a carbon tax that slowly gets bigger until it is equal to the cost of removing carbon from the air then no more net carbon will be put in the air. The tax would be charged just on carbon taken out of the ground, encouraging people to use carbon capture and then create zero emissions fuels from the carbon taken out of the air for jet planes or older cars.

  • Or just more taxes (Canada)

  • CO2 emissions don't even matter so... yeah. Maybe instead we can clean the country size islands of trash in the Pacific, I dont know.

  • Or just dont... Use a straw

  • And meat 😑

  • You forgot to mention meat consumption.

  • why not just produce oxygen to counter co2

  • Shouldn't you first prove that the Co2 we emit does actually make it worse. The only proof we can see is a greener earth, unless you believe that models who didn't predict the past wel, do predict the future..

  • In Quebec we got hydro so boom

  • What to do? Very simple: stop eating meat. Saves a lot of pollution, waste of water and food. And stop flying everywhere.

    • @Pyro Not really.

    • but then all plants will be gone

  • Do it like Schleswig Holstein(a German state) 70% of the electricity is from renewable energy but if you would just look at the numbers we produce 160% of what we need.

  • use mass transit violently overthrow capitalism

  • 1:00 I expected the USA to be so dark but I didn't expect Europe to be so bright

  • Wind turbines need literally tons of steel, that contamine a lot and anybody post it, yep materials magically appear there and produce energy magically

  • Buy used stuff.

  • And now we have nonsense like NFTs...

  • Thanks really for the vid! For once some interesting information about climate change. In school we repeat the same things about climate change everyone knows in every other subject and it feels almost like brainwashing... I think this was better than any of it xD

  • As a scientist who works on renewable energy sources like the production of hydrogen via water splitting.... this is the best renewable presentation for public awareness I have ever heard....

  • Bill and Linda.........the sponsors of covid19 covid20 and #covid21 I think I will pass on all their advice....remind me about their airplane company they own....hiw green is that.

    • @Shane Foy how dare you, I am a Scott....

    • Let me guess, you're American?

  • You overlook the destruction of modern capitalism and its replacement by a socialist materialist democracy

  • Thanos was right.

  • How come you didn't bring up how much the Xbox uses?

  • “Sponsored by bill and melinda gates” That is the moment i realized this video would be complete bullshit.

    • and all the conservative pundits you get your info from are funded by the koch brothers

    • HEY! You can thank Mr. Bill Gates for EEclone, without him you wouldn't even be watching videos on EEclone right now.

  • I think someone in apple watching this video

  • Where does smoking a pack a day fall on the chart

  • Carbon dioxide is a canard, it's actually good for the environment, as confirmed by satellite measurements of leaf area (see www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2016/carbon-dioxide-fertilization-greening-earth ) The real threat is poisoning the environment with hormone-disrupting persistent bioaccumulative toxins (PBTs).

  • 3:10 Thanks America :]

  • co2 emissions ... are they bad? you dont know? they might be good for the environment?.. whaaaat.. isnt bill gates the guy that paralyzed all those kids in i dia?

  • Abortion is the biggest issue, with 73 million abortions per year 73 million dead each year.

  • What I learned from this video: - You can make literally anything ever out of CO2

  • i just stopped for a second to realize that the black widow 2019 is the same as i have and for some reason feel good about it and need to show it

  • The real joke is due to capitalism we produce more cars than people who exist to earn money and that's just ONE example... So it doesn't really matter how we consume if we don't change the economic system itself.

  • This is why we need a carbon tax. It’s too hard to remember the relative CO2 cost of everything we do. And even if you do have the time to memorize the CO2 chart for everything you do it becomes out of date quickly as manufacturing methods come on line. A carbon tax fixes this. You don’t need to know anything. If something is carbon intensive it will be more expensive. You won’t know or care why. You’ll just respond by using it less and being careful not to waste. Next time you move you’ll make sure you live in a small energy efficient place close enough to your place of work that you don’t have to drive. You’ll do this because you can’t afford not to. Even people who don’t care will suddenly become more effective eco activists than the most woke people today. Of course no one wants to pay another tax. Sure. But this does have to be a net tax. You can just offset another tax. Like we all play carbon taxes but pay less income tax. It won’t make us poor. It just changes behavior.
