    Mankind will be the cause of its own destruction…..Climbing the ladder of too much development creating waste and green house gases will eventually be the reason of own doom.

    The levels of co2 have been much higher in history…..ahh the sky is falling the sky is falling!!! Alarmists at best. Here comes the UN to regulate us more. Blah blah blah…she can go pound sand. I wish I could go to Walmart and buy a co2 making machine that just sits on my patio and pump out co2. Brainwashing 101. Scare the crap out of people. When I was 20, the earth was cooling down and they warned of an ice age. It’s all about control. Wake up people!

    or it’ll get worse and there will be a mass extinction and humans will die out very soon, which is a win for the planet at this rate. XD

    This is almost laughable! Don’t be deceived by this nonsense. The impact we have on this planet is minuscule. Ever consider that what we are experiencing is a natural cycle of the earth and even the entire solar system? Understand that Earth isn’t the only planet in our solar system going through massive changes right now. Global warming and then Climate change is a conglomeration of corrupt scientists who skew their data because they’re too prideful to admit that they are wrong.. the impact of mankind is irrelevant in scope of the real culprit of climate change… THE SUN!

    Rising temperatures????? Where the check do you live crazy lady?? Right now in the USA there are 49 STATES. B E L O W freezing…or will be tonight or the next night. GOOD GRIEF. STFU about climate change. That’s what it does….it changes….always has always will. Even if there’s not one living soul left

    There isn’t enough time left to fix it. JOUCQUE COUSTEAU tried explaining this when I was a kid. The time to fix it was some 30 years ago. As long people are interested in anything industrially manufactured this planet will continue to die off. We must kill industry. Our comforts are killing us 7 ways to Sunday. Either we kill industry or industry will kill us.

    Shellfish will die off. What is the effect on the food chain base plankton that supplies oxygen? Ocean acidification was involved in the Permian Extinction. It set up a feedback loop between land and sea. A bad day in biodiversity.

    I go from door to door removing all plastic from people’s homes. I only do it when I’m drunk, though. And on Christmas Eve. And if the door is unlocked and I’ve been invited. And if I remember to bring a big enough plastic bag to fit all of their plastic items.

    stop thinking that we’re ruining the Earth, no we’re not, Mercurius got full blast by the Sun 24/7 and yet still doing its thing, Earth is the same, the planet itself is fine, it is not going to fall apart or disintegrate, the real thing is we are ruining ourselves, by destroying environment we lived in

    We are a force of nature and are doing exactly what we should. We are preparing life for the next evolution.

    I used to say “Global warming” (AKA climate change) isn’t real. Thats not true, climate does change, and I dare say it might even be changing in a disastrous way. There is some data to suggest that. However, even if it is truly as bad as it is made out to be, the problem I have is not IF it exists, but WHY and what to do about it.
    The “why” part of it being “is it man made climate change?” There is a lot of data that promotes both sides of the argument. If you say otherwise, you are not looking deep enough and you likely have an agenda. BUT the “what do we do about it?” part of the equation is what fascinates me the most. There are some legitimate green initiatives out there, BUT consider this…..
    The majority of “solutions” to the growing problem of climate change involve some sort of shift of power. Mainly taxation and regulation.
    The same group of “97%” scientists that agree on climate change are funded in one way or another by the same revenue source as the people that are making rules, regulation and taxes for said climate change. Government.
    That by itself should make anyone with any capacity for critical thinking question things.

    The EU already produces less than HALF the the co2 per capita then the US. China also uses far less than the US and is the world leader in renewables.

    The USA on the other hand uses fossil fuel like it’s going out of fashion headed by Trump that thinks global warming is a hoax made up by the Chinese and has no intention of reducing it..

    Australia just passed a law in 2018 that supermarkets can no longer distribute plastic shopping bags to customers. A long way to go before we are free of our plastic prison but at least we are moving in the right direction.

    i use bottles and fill it with plastic paper popsicle sticks and spit and send it to the dump why deal with its not even being dealt with my method at least will have a better chance of being held down by its own weight from chip bags to candy wrappers paper towels to paper plates roll them right on in till where forced to deal with it

    “The fact that climate change is literally dissolving pieces of the ocean floor”.

    A fact? Here’s a fact no one actually read this study before writing this episode. My guess is you didn’t as you don’t even have a link in the description to the paper. A paper that was literally just published last month.

    From the actually study:
    “How the work was done

    Because it is difficult and expensive to obtain measurements in the deep-sea, the researchers created a set of seafloor-like micro environments in the laboratory, reproducing abyssal bottom currents, seawater temperature and chemistry as well as sediment compositions. These experiments helped them to understand what controls the dissolution of calcite in marine sediments and allowed them to quantify precisely its dissolution rate as a function of various environmental variables. By comparing pre-industrial and modern seafloor dissolution rates, they were able to extract the anthropogenic fraction of the total dissolution rates.”

    I am in no way a climate denier. But some of the studies that come out, or rather, how those studies are reported on and portrayed in the media hurt rather then help the cause. Especially when important facts are omitted because 99% of the information reported is parroting from other 2nd and 3rd party sources. Rather then taking from the original paper or omitting important facts about the study to fit a narrative.

    Fact: This is based on a single study by Mcgill University. A study which was a “RECREATION” and best guess “SIMULATION” of what the researchers think is going on in some areas on the ocean floor. All actual data for this is based on climate models which is one of the single most complicated algorithms humans have ever tried to model and understand. Another words it’s really really really hard.

    Fact: It can take “CENTURIES” for the C02 to reach the bottom. So any effects seen on the ocean floor currently are from the C02 from 50 to 100 years ago. Furthermore the study only “SUGGESTS” this could happen and is based on a comparison of pre-industrial dissolution rates. Another words it’s based on comparisons of all those studies done before 1750 to 1850 on the ocean floor.

    This is not to suggest we ignore this or any other study because of the high number of variables that make climate incredibly difficult to model. It means that all studies should be taken at face value and all information including additional studies or lack there of need to be considered. Far too often we learn data was manipulated in a study to meet the expectations of those doing the research or we find funding comes from questionable sources. It is far more damaging to something like climate change when this happens then when a dozen additional studies are shown to support it. Worse yet is attempting to make a change based on an incomplete incomplete picture only to make things worse.

    Try to buy stuff packaged in paper glass or cans. Reduce beef intake. Drive less by biking or walking or carpool

    I love your videos; great information and great presentation. What I wanted in this one was a little more info about what is under calcium carbonate bed and if some ocean water might be migrating into lower levels of our mantle.

    How is this my fault. I never threw plastic waste in the ocean or drove a car an I shouldn’t have to do anything about it. Infact I’m moving to mars

    Analogy they used at 3:35 killed me from deep inside, It’s like one by one every protecting layer is going, No Ozone can barely affect the 10% of biodiversity on land but what about 90% of marine biodiversity, Are they doomed to swim in acidic cola (carbonic Acid) that we are creating for them.

    Guys, it’s not that hard: stop voting for anyone who doesn’t want to address climate change.

    We all know what the problem is, yet we let politics get in the way of what needs to be done.

    We’re pretty much past the point of no return now regarding climate change. The damage is irreversible. We’ve ruined the only place we can call home. There’s nowhere else out there that can support us the way our own planet does.

    Just slap a tax in the name of climate on the sea and everything will be fine.

    If only there were enough Tums to relieve the oceans’ heartburn. Until then, I use my own reusable bags when grocery shopping (or regular shopping) & reusable straws at restaurants. I also reuse many of the plastic containers that fast food comes in (especially Chick-fil-A). And we recycle.

    I wish youtube would shut down so we would all stop burning up energy and creating more co2 watching seeker. kill technology and save the planet.

    We should have an environment tax so more of our hard earned money gets embezzled. Great Idea.

    When you finally explore the other 90% of our oceans! then you can make assumptions. Till then continue spending our tax dollars on mars and military funds >.>

    carbonic acid is not real. spectographic examination of theoretical carbonic acid solutions show nothing but dissolved CO2. That stuff is nasty though.

    Mathematical modeling is still extremely vulnerable to incorrect or bad information.
    I would like more actual sampling. More “boots on the ground”, if you will.
    Mathematical modeling is only as accurate as the information it’s provided in the first place.
    Estimation is all well and good for theories, but when we’re talking about actually fixing such a potentially significant problem, we need more than theories and estimates.
