Human-made climate change is increasing the frequency and intensity of severe weather. 2022 continued the trend of recent years being the warmest on record. Extreme heat and water events affected many parts of the globe, with the greatest increases in temperature not where you might expect.

  1. It's December in south India and feel summer has already started. I'm really scared about real summer now(April-May). Winter this year was negligible at my place this year. Destruction of animal species on earth has begun with the climate change.

  2. 5:00 There you go, listen to his answer. We've started feedback loops we almost certainly cannot stop, but we have some idea of what's coming, so that's what we should prepare for and focus our efforts on.

    Extreme flood events? We can absolute engineer ourselves out of that. Consequently, what we do there can also mitigate the other side of that equation: Severe droughts, even long multi year ones.

    More global rain on average and longer growing seasons will mean more food on less land. Less global wind on average because of the lack of temperature variants between the poles and equator.

    Earth was were we are going only 3 million years ago. Since that time, the area I live in was once under thousands of feet of ice & call me self interested, but I'd prefer we not bring back the ice ages.

    Some areas will be worse, certainly, but most will be better. The Sahara could turn green once more. Europe could get colder. There really is no universal declaration which can be made about the earth as a whole.

    Life will adapt; it always has and always will. New species will emerge as old ones diversify.

    To be good stewards, we must be less greedy or we will go extinct and earth will go on without us, largely oblivious that we ever existed in the first place…

  3. So the climate was in a “stable state” when millions of people died annually due to floods and droughts, but we are no longer in a stable state now that deaths from extreme weather events are down more than 90%?
    I’ll take unstable any day.

  4. Simplest way to think about climate change is that more energy is added to the system. How much energy? Based on satellite and earth observations the energy added to our shared atmosphere is equivalent to the energy released by detonating five Hiroshima type nukes every single second. That additional energy then is transferred to materials with less energy thereby raising their temperature. Not knowing exactly when we're over the edge of Earth's systems to deal with this energy gives naysayers and cold hearted money lovers room to deceive themselves while working with radical right media to continue it's assault on facts, science.

  5. Education and birth control are key to reducing poverty and hunger.
    Having child that you can not provide for is cruel and irresponsible.
    Population needs to be in balance with jobs, resources, nature and the environment. Having a bigger population in any country than the country can support makes no sense. Access to food, water, shelter, energy and jobs should guide population levels. The worlds population is still expected to add another billion people to feed, clothe and produce pollution. Humans are crowding out all other species of plants and animals.

  6. The cost of dealing with the impact of Climate Change will be much greater than the cost of dealing with the cause.
    We must stop adding more fossil fuels to the climate fire. Phase out coal power plants and replace them with wind and solar energy.
    Individuals, businesses and governments need to be educated about climate change and how they can reduce fossil fuel use.

  7. I am not sure I understand what you base the claims in this video on? – According to IPCC there is none to little evidence from extreme weathers being correlated to climate change, or even worse caused by climate change. Just read chapter 11 in the latest full IPCC Assessment Report and you will see for yourselves. The only extreme weather where the authors of the IPCC report find satisfactory evidence is for the correlation of increasing mean temperatures and heat waves. The evidence presented for the other types of extreme weathers are contradictory, i.e. weak or no correlations and certainly no causality.

    For every extreme heat record you presented in this episode there are several cold records. There has been snow in Karpathian mountains in the middle of the summer for several years in a row (2019, 2020, 2021), in January 2020 there was snow and -2 Celsius in Amman in Saudi Arabia – first time in 150 years, we have seen very early snowfall in Canada (September 2020 and May 2021) and there has been snow falling during summer in Australia in 2021.

    Finally a small anecdote: In 1989 James Hansen claimed the NYC West Side Highway would be underwater in 2009. There are still cars driving there.

    So, there is no doubt climate is changing – but to make claims about correlation and/or causality between extreme weather and climate change is simply not supported by data.

  8. Climate Change is making weather events more extreme. This will impact the worlds food supply.
    Floods, droughts, fires, excessive heat, snow storms and low water levels in reservoirs and in ground water storage are becoming more common. We must stop adding more fossil fuels to the climate fire.
    India, China, Brazil, Japan, US, Europe, Indonesia, Canada, Germany and Australia need to do more to reduce use of fossil fuels. They must stop building and financing more coal fossil fuels power plants.
    Time to go all in on wind and solar energy and electric vehicles.
    Fossil fuels are a bad investment for people and the planet.
    Investors are divesting from fossil fuels. ESG investing is growing.
    The cost of dealing with the impact of climate change will be greater than the cost of reducing the impact.
    The world population is expected to grow by another billion people. Where will the food come from ?

  9. This is bad weather. This is bad governance and poverty. If the Arctic is warming faster than the rest of the planet, shouldn't the temperature gradient between it and the tropics be reduced, thus reducing extreme weather?
