Our home is burning. Rapid climate change is destabilizing our world. It seems our emissions will not fall quickly enough to avoid runaway warming and we may soon hit tipping points that will lead to the collapse of ecosystems and our civilization.

While scientists, activists and much of the younger generation urge action, it appears most politicians are not committed to do anything meaningful while the fossil fuel industry still works actively against change. It seems humanity can’t overcome its greed and obsession with short term profit and personal gain to save itself.

And so for many the future looks grim and hopeless. Young people feel particularly anxious and depressed. Instead of looking ahead to a lifetime of opportunity they wonder if they will even have a future or if they should bring kids into this world. It’s an age of doom and hopelessness and giving up seems the only sensible thing to do.

But that’s not true. You are not doomed. Humanity is not doomed.

    “It’s dire, but not hopeless” I think is a good mindset for most serious problems in life

    • Vinny says:

      Easy for someone like you to say.

      that’s me when I start a 1500 words assignment 4 hours before the deadline. Yep…humanity is doomed.

    • Ian Corral says:

      They got a lot of things wrong in the video, for one carbon capture isn’t viable yet and is too expensive

    • Clover says:

      Hey Click! Hoiiii

  2. Transdimensional says:

    I love the fact that in this there’s a clear contrast from the last climate change video where things seemed a little bleak. But this shows everyone that we as humans are able to come together and fight for our planet!

      @Joseph Stein lol they aren’t too different. I get you’re trying to focus on semantics, but focus on the actual topic Einstein.

    • Off Jvlone says:

      @Pranav Old account did you watch the video ?

    • Joseph Stein says:

      The planet doesnt need fighting for and will survive with or without us lol. We have to decide if we want a future with the planet.

  3. John Chessant says:

    I think the feeling of hopelessness is understandable when we talk about the political aspects of climate change. It’s not that we think humanity as a species is not capable of solving climate change, it’s just structurally difficult to pass any climate legislation when the fossil fuel industry has so much influence in government. As for me, I’m pessimistic in the short term but optimistic in the long term. More and more young people who care about this issue will become eligible to vote, and we’ll gradually win.

    • Off Jvlone says:

      @ZenoTheMeano both is 2 , you listed 3 …..

    • Rhys Marchand says:

      I hope that there will be a major shift in political views and that current political views will completely disappear! I hope our species will start acting together instead of against each other

    • James Waterlow says:

      @john dalton it’s not about cutting your gas emissions to zero in one day, what you can actually do is find ways of reducing your energy demand or alternative sources and cut it down as you are able to.

  4. Selestrielle says:

    I’ve always been of the position that even if the world is doomed, everything you can do to minimize harm to other people is a win nonetheless. But it’s good to know maybe the world isn’t entirely fucked.

    • Fork says:

      I never thought the world would be doomed because of increases in technology and other things. Solar power is bad for the environment because heat, but we have other advances (like fusion).

    • Marcel says:

      Until we figure out the problem of money there will always be people who choose it over human life.


      READ MY NAME!!!!!!!

  5. Elan says:

    I’m 30 and I have spent about 10 years in apathy, out of hopelessness.
    I finally started trying to make things better recently.
    Thank you for this video, it keeps me moving forward.

  6. OmicronGaming says:

    This is such a nice balance between the extremes of believing we’re all doomed and not believing in climate change at all

    • Splitted Spark says:

      @Pyranders if done right and a bit of luck it will make you money. Almost like a car or yt could. So your point is invalid

    • Mack says:

      @ECKtrain Crypto is not “burning” the world, stop exaggerating. Crypto allows for more economic freedom, eventually there be a more environmentally conscious service available. Crypto is much better for humanity than government controlled currency

    • Armpit Beard says:

      @Pyranders So are all fiat currencies.

    “Consequences, Schmonsequences, as long as I’m rich.”
    -Daffy Duck
    This quote pretty much sums up the mentality of a lot of the 1%. The fact that we’ve achieved any progress is nothing short of miraculous.
    We CAN do this; we CAN be better. We WILL do better.

  8. Alexander Friis says:

    I think an important thing I have realized lately is that we Will never get back what is lost but we can still save what is left. And that is reason enough not to just give up. Thank you for a meaningful video

  9. Abvolts - Animation says:

    I’ve always held hope despite so many others saying “kill humanity” “we suck” “we’re doomed” and such. This video has reinforced my beliefs and I thank you for that. Brightened my day just a bit
