This is why we need to have a separation of state and business. The conflict of interest is simply too great.

As a hardcore conservative, I can say that I agree with most of the political views correspondent to right-wing political perspectives; however, it is more than clear that climate change and global warming are true, existing phenomenons that we definitely shouldn't ignore or, even worse, deny...

I think _everyone_ should be concerned about this giant issue; not only young millenials, as this video seemingly tries to suggest (that's the only issue with the video)

Johannes Isokivelä:
As a physicist, it's equally frustrating to know that the big oil companies have done everything to slander nuclear power, with political campaigns and funding for organizations like Greenpeace. If nuclear power would have continued to expand through the 80-ties until now we would be in a much better situation to deal with climate change.

Imagine, Exxon would have been way ahead of its time if it had published the paper and offered renewable energy.

There’s this Search Engine called Ecosia. About half of the money they make from advertising goes directly to planting trees (the rest is used for operating costs and marketing) They already planted 52 million trees is places where deserts are expanding!

Like this so people use it!

It pisses me off to no end to hear old, selfish people destroying the planet for future generations in the name of profit because they know they will already be gone when the world ends. I'm only 16 and it breaks my heart because I don't want to die with most of my life having been spent in school. It makes it hard to keeo going. I fully support all the kids around the world who skip school to protest climate change inaction, especially when there is no point in getting an education if the world is predicted to die before you can make any use of it.

The biggest lie about climate change is that it's killing the planet.
For the record, the planet is fine, it's been through worse.
It's all life that's used to the way things are who are getting screwed (including humans).

ASAPScience: please cite sources on the screen when you make points, it will increase trust in your viewers and maybe convince more people of your accuracy in research.

The Earth's climate and other mechanisms will increasingly be a topic of interest in the years to come as crops fail, regions scortch, populations migrate, economies strain and governments wobble. Yet this challenge holds the great opportunity for humanity to finally unite, out of necessity now. Read the free e-book The Great Waves of Change to find out what is coming over the horizon and how YOU can prepare. The doubters' voices will grow faint as the Great Waves strike humanity ever.

What if more research was done into solar cells, if storing energy from them could be made much more efficient then they could potentially be a great solution right? I mean if solar panels were made affordable and there was an efficient way of storing the energy everybody could make there own power. I get it’s not as easy as just discovering a magical new way of storing energy for long periods of time but solar energy is probably the most personal sort of energy source you could have as I’m not sure everyone could have a wind turbine in there back garden!

One minor misinformation about climate change, it’s not really global warming. It’s more extreme weather. More heat than cold but the polar vortex still happened. Still mostly heat (and water because of heat) though

Thank you so much for explaining this with solid evidence to back it up. Anyone who isn't concerned about climate change is shortsighted or kidding themselves.

Thank you for this!! Currently studying this at university and ecologists really stress that it doesnt get enough attention. Education is the first step to mitigation, especially when there's damage control to be done🌍❤

ExxonMobile stands fifth in the list of companies contributing to global gas emissions. At No. 3 is Gazprom, which has already started oil drilling in the Arctic which will eventually damage the Arctic ecosystem.
They are also doing their part on turning public opinion against global warming.
About 5-8 years ago, most internet users had a consensus that global warming is real. The debate was actually on how it should be implemented. Now, we see attack on the legitimity of the global warming, often trying to disguise it as natural climate cycle.
