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.

Also a special thanks to the team at Our World for helping us out with data and research!

Sources & further reading:

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 famous quote: Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have.

This makes me so pissed off. our planet is dying, yet all people seem to spend time on is whos fault it is. lets be real, it doesn't matter whos fault it is. one way or another is the most powerful countries and unions on earths responsibility to work to fix this. How about we fix our planet now and point fingers later, stop acting like children and grow up. I'll be damned if after all these thousands of years of amazing human development and enlightenment, ignorance is the thing that takes us out.
