    the map at 1:04 makes it looks like the US and Canada give off all the CO2 but what about China and India?? lol ok

    Don't wanna be the fun guy at parties or anything, but you didn't mention anything about meat production.... Which is up there with oil and gas as a carbon footprint..

    Remember, renewables are not zero carbon footprint. If you replaced all sources on the grid and had the battery storage to compensate, lithium mining is HORRIBLE for the environment! And those cells won't last forever. They will need to be replaced, and lithium is a finite resource. Not that it doesn't pay off at some point, but the carbon cost is definitely not zero.

    I have a solution to the paper/plastic straw debate: don’t use straws.

    Bill and Melinda Gates told him to make the video for money. You know how you stopped watching television because NOsoft has far better content? Well this is the reason Television content is so dire in the first place.

    I've been PAYING MORE (thanks to cuntservative extremists such as republicunts & demoturds always being in power) for 100% green electricity for the past 11 years. Green energy should be the one to get all the rebates & massive funding from government.

    You made a video about CO2 emissions and didn’t mention animal agriculture, a HUGE source of CO2 emissions. Also this video is misleading in making people think that there is almost no benefit of using reusable options (“almost no benefit”), but not dumping a ton of plastic into our oceans (or into a landfill where it takes hundreds of years to break down) is another benefit not to be minimized. While the video is helpful to some extent it will mislead the average person on these two points.

    The most environmentally conscious straw: Just using the GODDAMN face hole you were born with. I dunno what kind of straws Cavemen used to derive nourishment from _their_ Big Gulps before Bloomberg nuked them, but they must have been pretty Eco Friendly

    How do people come up with these numbers?

  • TheGreatBritishFarm

    No, carbon emissions in lithium batteried vehicles are much higher than convetionals due to how carbon intensive it is to get it.

  • AetherXIIX

    0:16 that was so unexpcted that I laughed a lot

  • Potato:3

    i'm still wondering why the straw argument didn't just end when it started with "how about we use the basis of civilization itself, our opposable thumbs, to grab the fucking cup, and pour the liquid down our mouths. you know, drink like functional fucking human beings?" If my grandma with arthritis can manage drinking out of a cup, so can you. argument over, no ifs ands or buts, moving on.

    I did not hear you say one intelligent thing about the role of CO2 in the environment, its role in healthy plant life on earth, its absorption into the oceans and the equilibrium with the deep ocean, its origins from massive outgassing of the inner earth 4 billion years ago, about how we are in a starvation era of CO2 for the biosphere. Your cute approach to thinking left out all the adult conversation. Lets learn to think again, like they used to.

    One of the best ways to reduce your personal CO2 emissions is to stop eating meat or eat less of it. But no one wants to talks about that. Anyways I wonder where a steak would have fit in on this scale?

    The only thing about the cotton bag is that you can probably hold 2-3x more material in it than a plastic bag so you probably need to use it about 50 times to be worth not 150

    damn, guess i can be pretty happy about norways hydropower. but then again, the less i spend the more norway sells to other nations so they dont have to make as much dirty energy... fml i almost thought i could be happy about spending to much time on this thing :(

    I don't really think you can seriously talk about Co2 emissions without at least mentioning animal products Although it might be smart for Bill and Melinda Gates to leave that out because many people have yet to be convinced anything should be done at all

    Even though you aren't using fossil fuels directly for the electric car those boys take TONS of electricity to charge and that is a lot of fossil fuels being burned to create that electricity.

    Eat less meat or go vegetarian/vegan. Production of animal foods causes massive emissions of CO2.
