NASA Warns Of Mass Extinction If We Don’t Fix Climate Change

NASA is sounding the alarms about climate change. Again. Will anyone in power listen this time? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“The planet is warming at a pace not experienced within the past 1,000 years, at least, making it “very unlikely” that the world will stay within a crucial temperature limit agreed by nations just last year, according to Nasa’s top climate scientist.

This year has already seen scorching heat around the world, with the average global temperature peaking at 1.38C above levels experienced in the 19th century, perilously close to the 1.5C limit agreed in the landmark Paris climate accord. July was the warmest month since modern record keeping began in 1880, with each month since October 2015 setting a new high mark for heat.

“In the last 30 years we’ve really moved into exceptional territory,” Gavin Schmidt, director of Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, said. “It’s unprecedented in 1,000 years. There’s no period that has the trend seen in the 20th century in terms of the inclination (of temperatures).””*

  1. The petroleum companies have to give political donations (I mean bribe) politician's to look the other way.  It will come to a breaking point soon enough that it may be too late for us humans.

  2. Don't think about it just do the simple math. Earth SRF (Solar Radiative Forcing) is now 5w/m2. It was 4w/m2. That's a rise of 25% from Water vapour increase 11%, Co2 increase 75%, Methane 150%. These are the main gasses that warm the earth. Without them the earth would be a frozen ice ball. To much and you get a planet like Venus, 600'c all due to a Co2 atmosphere. The earth temperature increases by 7.5'c for every 1w/m2 increase in SRF. Its the only number we need to know. SRF is (5w/m2) 15. The minus 15 is because the earth is further from the sun than Venus. Venus is used as the Zero point as this was the planet chosen to conduct experiments on atmospheric forcing of a planets temperature. Venus SRF is 80w/m2. (80×7'5) +/ SWRI) = 600'c Exactly correct. Earth SRF was 4w/m2 (4×7.5) -15 = 15'c Again exactly correct. Earth SRF is now 5w/m2 (5×7'5) -15 = 22.5'c. The earth must now break the laws of physics, chemistry and thermo dynamics for it not to warm by 7.5'c over the next 40 years.

  3. the powers that be will never allow the cooperation necessary …..this problem will manifest much sooner than we are led to believe………likely we are past a point of no return…..

  4. Speaking to Anna's point about connection b/t inability to grow crops and war: the Syrian war started as a mass demonstration against rising prices due to crop failure in the country. Now, over 500,000 are dead and counting.

  5. The numbers are manipulated to show what radical tree hugger political "scientists" want. The founder of the weather channel (a real climate scientist), the co-founder of Green Peace (a real climate scientist), and over 30,000 other climate scientists will tell you that there is no proof of man made climate change. I wouldn't care, but the lunatic tree hungers want to harm people's ability to make living and drive up the cost for existing, just to push their ideology. The Church of climate Scientology.

  6. here's an idea let's have government Personnel like in Germany create a giant son that's artificial to warm us up that much faster

  7. Listen at 5:40. I saw this weird pictorial by a scientist a week ago. It's a map of north Africa and The Middle East with a contour around a vast area that is the 200 mm / year rainfall line, < 200 mm / year inside this zone is considered the cutoff point where agriculture is not sustainable (such as Sahara Desert obviously). There were dots on the map which he said were the locations of U.S. drone strikes and they follow a path around the contour of < 200 mm / year rainfall line, the agriculture marginally-sustainable zone contour. I haven't a clue what that's about. Coincidence I guess ?

  8. The human specie will end in mass cannibalism in less than 10 years just like the Ester island. You can mark my words.

  9. The only way they got temperatures to got up as fast as it shows is by faking data. The earth has warmed faster in the last 1000 year at least 3 times. That's what happens when you come out of a little ice age.

  10. climate change? Why not steralize all immigrants. than you don't have to worry about that excess carbon dioxide.

  11. You American will submit to Islam. Europe already accepted the inevitable. Their women wanted it. Infidel are no longer in control. Once Trump gone, the will of your women will welcome the authority of Muslim. Thanks be to Allah.

  12. We are destroying our Garden of Eden by overpopulating the earth beyond recovery. Each and every person comes with a carbon footprint and places demands upon the earths fast disappearing resources. We cannot save our selves and the ecosystem if we do not begin now to reduce the worlds population. Please stop having kids. They have no future except suffering. Blessed is the woman who is without child and who does not give suck during these terrible times. By overpopulating the earth we are committing the suicide of our species. The child has already been born that will perish as the result of catastrophic climate change. Stop having kids.

  13. + The Yung Turks – It is worse than you have said. Human influence by CO2 emissions isn't that much to contribute to climate change as it happens now.
    There is something else : Solar sistem is now passing again through the center Galactic plane in which more energy is concentrated. This happens each 12.200 (aprox). years by moving up and down passing the plane. Last time it happend was the biblical Flood now beginning to appear again given to high temperatures melting ice and levelling oceans and so on. All planets and the Sun are also heating up external – and inside provoking vulcanism and earthquakes.
    Humanity can't do anithing against this sorry.
    If somebody wants to know more about this ( and Nibiru too ) send me a reply here.

  14. It's all a bit late now for 'if' statements; everyone has terminal cancer and, at the very, very, inconceivably best, maybe three decades left to die in.

  15. It's amazing August 1st 2017 East Coast Central Florida the high today was 83 the high tomorrow will be 84 global warming is bullshit to suck your money explain the highs in Florida

  16. Hopefully AI will have some ingenious solution to our problem. There has to be a way to remove pollutants from the air which we haven't thought about yet. It's easy to be optimistic if you can imagine AI calculating possible outcomes a billion times faster than all of humanity combined.

  17. NASA talks nonsence. Nature and climat is changing  extremely because of big changes in the cosmic area around us, also in the sun! It 's a normal cyclus. For us it seems strange and unusual, but it is all a normal proces; had nothing to do with CO2 and humans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. So if a chef started giving advice and dire warnings about Keynesian monetary policy, would you accept the advice and act on it?     NO?   Well why then would you take the advice of a SPACE AGENCY about Climate matters when they are too stupid to admit that we need 1000ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere to green up our planets vegetation instead of the current LOW level of 450ppm.?        I mean these are the basic  FACTS , so how come they don't know them???    I wouldn't believe anything they say anymore, they have NO credibility.

  19. Nothing will help, if the human population remains above 2 billion.  Forget veganism, LED bulbs, electric cars…… none matters if the population doesn't drop dramatically.

  20. Its time to start using Free Energy if we want to save the Planet.

    The $5 Trillion oil, gas and coal industry is blocking this information from coming out. Help!

  21. Used to believe this. But then something happened. It got colder. There was no summer this year. The ice in the two polls grew. Idk but don't plants thrive off co2 n make oxygen? more co2 comes out a single volcano than all are cars. And there also at one time was more co2 in the ice ages than there is now. Did anybody ever think it was that big ball of fire up there? You know that gets hotter n colder? Nooooooooo there's no way that could affect us. Check sun spot cylcles n u might actually find it matches a temperature chart.

  22. What a load of bullshit: humans can easily survive in a +5 degree increase, facts are winters are still very cold.Sea levels are not rising, food production is at an all time high & polar bear numbers are higher than ever.

  23. Plant life cannot be sustained at the 3 Degrees to be gained by 2080. Someone want to tell me how to breathe without trees?

  24. Dumb asses…Climate change is a natural process. It's gonna happen just as it has over the eons.
    Why not do a program on chemtrailing if you have the balls.
    Nobody talking about all the pollution coming over the U.S. from China & India, nor all the Asian countries openly dumping all their -n garbage right out in the middle of the Pacific ocean.

  25. geoengineering programs using toxic aerosols in the atmosphere and over oceans is also contributing to global warming .  wake up America . weather is being controlled!!   look up :   EXTENSIVE LIST OF PATENTS GEOENGINEERING WATCH      &   DANE WIGINGTON YOUTUBE      To find out the truth!!!!

  26. Blah, blah, blah bull excrement at best. The activity of the Sun cannot be changed. Well at least man cannot change that. There used to be over six thousand temperature recording stations. Now there are only two thousand stations, all of the low average stations were dropped, the result is an average increase of temperature, add to that the under reporting of low temperatures. Your entire broadcast is pure bull shit.
    Your are either very stupid or you have zero integrity. You need to shut down or do your own research. In plain English you are a fraud a worthless jerk.
