We suck. it's like saying there's an asteroid going to hit us and it's going to cost a lot of money just to try to blow that thing up with a million missiles but wait it's going to cost a lot of money so f****** it let's all die. It will save us some money.both the Republicans and the Democrats are going through hell they both want to say they want to help Americans but it's all about their own agendas so no one gives a f***

It's not actually funny... people will kill this our species in order to not have to sacrifice their comfort and convenience. Doing things the way we've always done them only works in an unchanging environment.
And the likelihood of radically changing out society and culture is low. We shall perish.

John was just talking about green part of "Green New Deal"..........what about "New Deal" part ........................the point of this deal is to create new good paying real jobs through huge public "green" projects with emphases on creating jobs............if we continue like this and majority of people die from hunger do we really care what kind of planet we will leave to couple of zillioners John do one show about New Deal part if you dare

There's a bill for example the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act that gives tax revenues back to the people. The carbon tax or cap and trade sets has goal of the negative externalities of emissions, not merely for generating revenue. In economic terms, it puts output at the equilibrium. Why do people seem to oppose? Lack of information?

Unfortunately, if the US government collects a tax on carbon, there is little to no chance the proceeds will find its way to investment in clean technology. They will spend it on kickbacks to the same oligarchs who will pay a disproportionately lower rate for the carbon they produce.
Oscar Wilde
Oscar Wilde - Před dnem
I read the Green New Deal and it was pretty stupid.

It can be read here:

On several occasions AOC goes off on numerous, irrelevant tangents. For example, on pg. 4 she talks about the "gender wage gap" which has been disproven time and time again (see Claudia Goldin a female economist from Harvard if you want a good read of the subject). Go figure. I don't know why that was relevant to CO2 in terms of ppm.

Anyway, read it yourself. It more like a poem than anything truly tenable. IF YOU WANT TO READ SOMETHING GOOD ON TENABLE SOLUTIONS, see what NASA posits instead:

Or Google "scientific american climate change".

Id like you to check your facts and educate yourself b/c frankly if u attended a single course in earth science, it would be taught to you that CO2 is reflecting rays from the sun (A form of Radiation). Therefore heat bouncing off of the atmosphere and back down to the earth, this should generally heat up the surface of the earth. So even with all your fancy PhDs and the oh I got this award and attended this, and I was on the climate conference, doesn't permit you to deny any facts that a majority of the climate science community admits to a drastic increase in the C02 emissions. Also even according to the U.N.(for dumb people U.N.=united nations), WE HAVE YEARS TO CLEAN UP THIS SHIT. But hey ill gives you credit to all people of the generations before this(ahem US-midwest #sciencenonbelivers), I just want to live till I'm 60 but frankly cant b/c your generation is too concerned about the coal industry and industries that frankly emit carbon emissions but provide fewer jobs than clean energy(via solar and wind). SO if u wanna talk shit get your facts straight before you come to the media and try to spread this propaganda of false info, and yes you make call me young and uneducated but at least I want to live until I'm 60 and not try to dip out before shit hits the fan. #Greta Thunberg

What Bill Nye's statement ignores is the lack of elasticity behind fossil fuels. For those of you who have never taken microeconomics, elasticity is defined as the degree to which a demand or supply is sensitive to changes in price or income.
We created a society where people need fossil fuels, no matter the cost. Not to mention, the reckless spending our government perpetuates means you wouldn't be likely to see that tax money again anytime soon.
If we could adapt our society to consume fossil fuels and the atmosphere's ability to clean up pollution at a sustainable rate, fantastic! But let's be real. That isn't going happen unless we reach an event of apocalyptic significance.

I'm all for the green new deal. Oddly enough I'm also all for the tariffs on China. Yes, it will make things more expensive, that's a good thing. When things are more expensive people buy less. Rampant over-consumerism is one of the reasons we're in the situation we're in. Go tariffs!!!!! See Trump IS an Environmentalist and he never even knew it.

Could this show make an episode on 5G??
Really interested to know if it affects our health and what really drives the governments to want to make haste in this new race...
ClonedGamer001 - Před dnem
It shouldn’t affect health at all. 5G networks would still use either infrared or radio waves, both of which are already in use by various appliances. As for why everyone wants to get 5G first, that’s because it would significantly improve their standing in the global economy

Sorry for posting a second comment, but I need to point out that the poet makes a point, "Tax me and my kids to school" This is actually the biggest problem with carbon tax, Americans don't like to do things that cost them more money, and companies that sell gas, or carbon polluting products will simply tack that tax onto the end, passing the cost onto the consumer while keeping the same income. So if we were to drive a carbon tax home, the first step would be to prohibit companies from charging the tax from their customers.

Isn't carbon dioxide essential to the continued existence of plants though? Won't more CO2 just cause plants to grow better and faster until they balance out?

Not with so much of our forests disappearing. Many parts of the Amazon rainforest have been cut down. Cities are growing. the human population is expected to top out at about 11 billion. We're at about 7 now. I'm no scientist, but I think that only works if you have enough plants to absorb the CO2--and we're making more than can be absorbed.

8:47 as far as building a new power grid goes, we could try supplying all of our urban and most of our rural electricity needs with nuclear power. Safe, long term power for much lower cost than any other form of power available, and with its only emissions coming from the initial construction it is also the cleanest. This could even boost the economy massively because cheap power means cheaper production, which means cheaper products, which means you can buy more with the same amount of money.
For those wondering about nuclear "waste" we have luckily solved that with breeder reactors utilizing the "waste" as yet more fuel and removing it from ever being a problem again.
In fact, with power so cheap we could even have widespread electric cars with much smaller batteries (the main problem with e-cars) because they could be powered by induction on the main roads. Yet one more goal of environmentalists achieved.
Now to just persuade those in power of this plan. Hmm...

Problem with a carbon tax in the US is that it will just line the pockets of the rich like all other American taxes do. No good programs and policies can be implemented in America without being molested by payed off politicians to pinch working class Americans
