    By the end of the 21st century, humanity is becoming desperate. Decades of heatwaves and droughts have led to unusually poor harvests, while the warming oceans yield fewer fish each year. In the tropical zones, millions suffer from famine and resource wars have made millions more flee to the north. As things quickly get worse, in an act of desperation, the world's governments decide to enact an emergency plan...
    It is far from certain that a grim scenario like this will play out. But the failure of world leaders to effectively address climate change, makes it far from impossible.
    So in the near future it might become necessary to try something radical to slow down rapid climate change: Geoengineering. Interventions so massive in scale that they might undo centuries of human behavior. Or make everything much worse.
    What is geoengineering, is it really an option and what if it goes wrong?

      2. pratyush Tiwari

        Why no add??

      3. INSECT BITE *-*

        @LivingIn PatheticEra Amazon is great and needed for our lives.

        Please do a video about m-theory

    2. Xd Soler

      Wow can anyone name a better science teacher? Like I just subbed to him and watched most of his vids and I love them

    3. M0oseTacular

      The Climate will change naturally without our help so I wonder if we will ever develop methods to prevent climate change it its entirety.

    4. TheRottMachine

      Those global temperature projections look a lot like Covid infection projections.

    5. Fiendish

      Me and the bois going to turn Mars into a green planet

    6. jxq12 lmao

      This scares me

    7. Deej

      Ever since 2063, we simply drop a giant ice cube into the ocean every now and then solving the problem of global warming once and for all

    8. João Paulo

      Portuguese subtitles T_T

    9. Nova Star

      Looks like the chem-trail conspiracy theorists aren't THAT far from the truth. Of course, they think it's microchips and stuff, but, whatever.

    10. sciure sci

      I like how the West keeps telling the developing countries to switch to environment friendly tech after they already built everything they need. Fossil fuels are way more reliable and cheaper than clean energy.

    11. Moody the millenial

      Do these chemical trails left from airplanes do geo engineering? Or is it something else?

    12. Charles Sloan

      guys lets just buy some ozone from darth vader hes a cool guy

    13. Ric C

      tanto tiempo esperando los subtitulos en español y nada :$

    14. Хайдер Султан Аль Рамади

      Chemtrails, they're already doing it lol. This is called predictive programming. Start showing signs if something way before u reveal it to the public to create more tolerance.

    15. Harrison Sweet

      Aren't humans part of nature too? So whatever we do would be part of the "natural processes" of Earth? We aren't removed from nature. We are a part of it and like any species we have the ability to change our environment on a massive scale.

    16. Ada

      In conclusion the best solution would be to slow down and stop the climate change, by reducing the CO2 emissions.

    17. Harrison Sweet

      Isn't just farming geoengineering? We domesticated many plants and animals and changed our environment to suit our needs. What separates city building from "geoengineering"?

    18. Aniket Bagale

      I think any idea including ozone damage should be avoided ...also u could just stop fossil fuel use instead of researching how to cool earth....i mean it looks like the only ideas happening in reality are the ones which does not include human consumption compromise

    19. wilford industries

      we here at wilford industries we warn u to not use this method to make the earth cooler trust us we have experiences

    20. Revert FPV

      What about taking co2 and making it cold to cool stuff, so we would use bad stuff to do good things

    21. *JÃÂZ* Jazir

      So you were telling were just fucked

    22. Vexnos 0zymandias

      The "Direct air capture" kinda sounds like a sequestration plant for reducing atmospheric pressure.

    23. Mário Ďuráč

      4:55 *s m o n k*

    24. Renêe Bálico

      Where the Brazilian legends??????????????????????

    25. Garvit _

      Interesting way to mask the smell of our farts

    26. Garvit _

      Interesting, i can already smell three egg aroma in the air, *Takes long breath*

    27. Solidus 316

      We cannot prove climate change via the numbers, so lets fudge it.

    28. Curtis Stephens

      This is funny cuz this is already possible and ready to be done, if not already being done. Don't believe me? Cia has confirmed haarp is a real thing and it's tech has come far enough that it can cause rain or snow at will anywhere. But they don't tell you they can cause tornados and hurricanes... Ahhh there's the conspiracy

    29. Giuseppe Fontanella

      You really should include nuclear reactors in the images of solutions to climate chabge

    30. Pearl of the Internet

      I started a YT channel yesterday would be cool if somone would bring the stone to roll. Have Your best Week :)

      If we don't reach carbon neutral before the end of this century, then the Solar system will have the second Venus.

      Portuguese plz

    35. Nazly Hameed

      To be honest even when nukes are released there is a chance that earths crust will go through a displacement and destruction can be released Is this true?

    36. joshipriyamwada6

      and you know why i want an app like that? its because i want to do ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    37. joshipriyamwada6

      please make a do ANYTHING APP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    38. Splash_ Falcon

      2:27 hold up wait a minute. Something ain't right here

    39. Metin Kurt

      Pls Turkish Subtitle

    40. Bethany Brookes

      The problem is that the companies and corporations that cause the most problems with global warming aren't doing crap to sort it out, so no matter what we do, the effects will only be minimal unless those companies pitch in ti sort it out too...

    41. Obanje Spirit

      So...you're telling me the fate of the world is in the hands of a few first world countries , USA , Russia and, lol, China included? AHHAHAHAHAAHAH. Also it's the southern part of the hemisphere that's gonna get the old climate change hammer first? AHHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHaaaaahahaahaa ha ha...cool. Ok, so no point having kids then.

    42. Muhammad Irham Fauzan

      Please make indonesia subtitle for this video @kurzgesagt

    43. Gutierrez Sean Craig

      Isn't planting trees and making it grow faster, as well as environmental friendly house is more less expensive and the obviou-est answer for climate change?? Well we need more cooperation

    44. Gutierrez Sean Craig

      Mann I myself when I here Philippines or Filipinos, or our culture be included in movies, series, songs, yt videos, etc from foreign people will always have this patriotic feeling

    45. Holphana Scott

      45 degrees in spring in Australia? boiling water coming out of my tap a full month before summer. This IS happening.

    46. doremidoredo doremifasol

      They said we all would be under water by 2020 back in .... 70s and 80s

    47. doremidoredo doremifasol

    49. john doe

      Alex Jones right again. kurzgesagt is literally saying Chemtrails in this vid.

    50. Im Philly

      Did Humans have gone being a parasite of the Earth?

    51. middleburg11

      Why we making LOW SULFUR DIOXIDE FUELS ??? THEN THEY SPRAY IT AROUND THE WORLD ... RETARDED SCIENTISTS ???

    52. monkerud2108

      if we completeley fuck the ozone layer we would be in serious trouble and would have to live in caves and shit. that far fetched ish, but i think we should consider different approaches to cooling the planet...

    53. Will Stearns

      NO SHIT....only a fool doesn't know!!! THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR TWO DECADES OR MORE!!!

    54. Mitch Rogoff

      I support geoengineering for the express purpose of keeping fossil files in business

      1. Mitch Rogoff

        @Recruit it sounds like you pulled that number out of your ass, I’m gonna need a source for that because from my reaserch the % of Americans who’s employment is directly tied to the ocean is minuscule

      2. Recruit

        @Mitch Rogoff around that amount of percent of people will lose their jobs that work from jobs that the ocean provides. Am no expert but that will affect the economy bigger than the fossil fuel industry can provide.

      3. Mitch Rogoff

        @Recruit where do you get 30-40% of jobs based on the oceans

      4. Recruit

        @Mitch Rogoff alright what about the 30-40 percent of jobs that Americans work on that are base off the oceans.

      5. Mitch Rogoff

        @Recruit horseshoe crabs have survived every mass extinction including times when there was much more CO₂ in the atmosphere then there is today

    55. Archon player

      They have been Geoengineering for decades. Idiotic.

    57. Ranvir

      Anyone who thinks this is a good idea, has not read Jurassic Park.

    58. Christian Callini

      Why isn't this guy (or those guys) the president?

    59. LunchWithOrca

      So sad. This VIDEO is intellectual disinformation. They’ve already been doing it for decades.

      1. Samrt firdeg

        @LunchWithOrca True climate change is a serious issue but we won't do anything. I feel sorry for kids born in the last 5 years.

      2. LunchWithOrca

        @Samrt firdeg If someone wants to have even a hint of how serious our climate situation is then do this. On a clear evening when you see the moon rise, pick a star or planet close by. So for instance Mars might look like it’s at 1 o’clock in position to the moon. Every two hours, I am in the latitudes of Texas, You will see that star And the moon rotate 30° approximately. This means that six hours later when you look at where Mars or the star was originally at 1 o’clock it will be at 4 o’clock. It is so extreme that the moon rises rises and flips 180 degrees in one night. The features on The Moon are rotating with it. It’s very easy to explain if the earths axis has altered in relation to the ecliptic. A person can see it with their own eyes. This is a huge factor in the climate change. Our seasons are literally no longer the same. A person can sit in a chair and watch the heavens spin literally like a clock.

      3. Samrt firdeg

        @LunchWithOrca Ohhh. If you count the release of greenhouse gases then yeah you are right. We artificially warming the planet by accident.

      4. LunchWithOrca

        @Samrt firdeg The whole point of this video is that he is describing the Geo engineering that may possibly be done in the future. John Brennan Director of the CIA describes the Geo engineering that might be done in the future can years ago. So obviously it is possible that they can do this if they want to. I’m just saying if you look up at the skies it looks like they’re already doing it.

      5. Samrt firdeg

        @LunchWithOrcaHave you seen an exhaust pipe in a car, ya the same thing happens in a plane.

    60. codeman7055

      Self destruction? I don't think anyone should have the power to wipe us all out...

    61. codeman7055

      I find it weird we have global warming, it's there yes, but at the same time we are currently in an ice age.

    62. BETZALEL Y

      SPRAYING SULPHUR IN THE AIR, MIXES WITH WITH OXYGEN AND HYDROGEN THERE, BECOMES SUPHURIC ACID RAIN. WHAT AN ECOLOGICAL DISASTER THAT WILL BE ! IN THE US, CONCERNED CITIZENS SEEING CHEMTRAILS AND THE CORRESPONDING DEATH OF THE PLANT LIFE HAD SAMPLES OF THE PRECIPITATION LAB ANALYSED, IT CONTAINED UNNORMALLY HUGE AMOUNT OF ALUMINIUM AND BARIUM ( THIS IS NEVER NATURALLY OCCURRING IN RAIN ). BETTER THAN SULFURIC ACID, BUT ANY FARMER KNOWS ALUMINIUM SEEPED INTO THE SOIL KILLS THEIR CROP. HENCE THE DYING PLANT ECOLOGY. ALUMINIUM, IN NANO PARTICLE SIZE, STAYS IN THE AIR FOR A LONG TIME, AND OF COURSE IS A GOOD SOLAR REFLECTOR). ALUMINIUM INGESTED AS PART OF A HUMAN DIET, KILLS BRAIN CELLS, JUST LIKE MERCURY.

      1. Dhruv Soni

        calm down, buddy

    63. BETZALEL Y

      SAD TO SEE THAT EVEN IN REMOTE WILDERNESS AROUND THE WORLD, THERE ARE CHEMTRAILS IN THE SKY. I'VE BEEN AROUND MOST PLACES IN THE WORLD, AND THE ONLY PLACE I NEVER SEE CHEMTRAILS IS CHINA. SO IT IS HOGWASH THAT IT IS JUST CONDENSATION . CHINA BANS ALL NON-CHINESE UNREGISTERED AIRCRAFT ( IE MOSTLY MILITARY OF FOREIGN POWER) IN THEIR AIRSPACE. AND THEY THEMSELVES DON'T SPRAY.

      1. notanidiotasd51

        and i oop- sksksk

    64. Jahsun Handy

      This is BS. unforseen consequences have already happened from this plan that was already deployed, but actually has been used as weather warfare. This is BULLSHIT. Check out Dane Wiggington. He blew the whistle on this . If airteavelnis down by 80% why are there still grids in the sky?

    65. joke card

      You know I have an argument of some guy called “Tony” is some conspiracy theorist and made some stupid points and just argue argue argue can only link one source

    66. Kyle H

      Oh what could possibly go wrong?? Global freezing then coal will be back in style to warm the planet back up lol

    67. Broly The Ledgendary Super Sayian!

      So we have a secret wepon against 2020.

    68. Kyle Sirico

      If only some people watched your Kardaschev videos they’d know that solar, wind, and tidal power will help us get into tech booms.

    69. farceadentus

      Get with it. This has been going on for decades undercover. The problem is they are putting the wrong chemicals into the atmosphere which actually has detrimental effects on our health. What would work is atomic gold.

    70. Дани

      Where is russian subtitles 😢

    71. B H

      lol... engineers gonna hate this, because the total energy equation for the solutions proposed are not even close to balanced.

    75. Peter DeVido

      sooo we're going to spend trillions of dollars for years to slow climate change just so we dont have to abolish capitalism?

      Look, dear kurgeast, I will not learn English just for this video. Just give Turkish subtitles I don't want that much

      1. Enes Erdem Atik

        O am not that dominant on plartfoms like HUfast, and even comminity subtitles may have been turned off when I was born. I do not know

      2. N. M.

        there would've been subtitles in many languages if youtube didnt turn off community captioning

      I actually just learned something my teachers are failing to teach me thank you

    86. Sience In A Nutshell Nutshell

      There is something i dont understand... why does he first say. That we need to stop rapid climate change. But then at 7:20 he say that we try to see how fast we can heat op earth😐

      1. Sience In A Nutshell Nutshell

        @William Chamberlain yup

      2. William Chamberlain

        It's satire. Like sarcasm. Deadpan voice.

    87. Sean Birdwell

      And everyone ignores the safest and most reliable renewable source of energy:nuclear.

      1. Sean Birdwell

        Sorry. 'Alternative'

      2. N. M.

        It's clean, but not renewable.

    88. Zemu Robinzon

      "And this experiment Is about to get really exciting" Indeed, fellow people

    89. Greg Warner

      We do not have to worry about these climatic changes. More than likely a large volcano will inject the dust required to chill the climate. There is the possibility it will chill the globe a bit too much and we will be selling snow shovels in Arabia. Maybe we just accept the heating and work on ways to mitigate the adverse effects.

      1. N. M.

        @Greg Warner Apart from Florida drowning, I don't see any positive side effects of climate change. A tropical Russia? No thanks!

      2. Greg Warner

        All of this along with the opposite has happened before. It will happen again. We have to figure out how to cope while still maintaining a economy strong enough to support the various wars mankind is indulging in.

      3. notanidiotasd51

        Ocean's still acidifying.

      4. N. M.

        Isn't the point to mitigate _both_ the heating and adverse effects?

      5. William Chamberlain

        Okay. Got any data for that?

    90. Zionist World Order

      Try it over Turkey or Russia and see how that goes.

    91. GaryOak

      But warmer means wetter, not drier.

      1. William Chamberlain

        @GaryOak yes, and a temporary dry spell helped precipitate the civil war in Syria, and the fluctuations at the start and end of the last ice age show decades-long drops in plant cover. What's fine at the scale of a few centuries can be catastrophic at the scale of the next harvest.

      2. GaryOak

        @William Chamberlain Global warming may be a problem for the equilibrium, but warmer times on earth have also been the ones with the highest fertility Preliminary results from a Smithsonian Institution project led by Scott Wing and Brian Huber, showing Earth's average surface temperature over the past 500 million years. For most of the time, global temperatures appear to have been too warm (red portions of line) for persistent polar ice caps. The most recent 50 million years are an exception.

      3. William Chamberlain

        Depends where you are. Should mean more moisture bin the atmosphere overall, but can change wind patterns, cause El Nino, cause monsoons to fail, stop tropical troughs from forming...

    92. Neo Smith

      Isn't meddling with nature what got us in so much mess in the first place?

      1. William Chamberlain

        @Neo Smith set another fire so you can stand on the just-burnt bit and not get burned when the unburnt bit burns.

      2. Neo Smith

        💀 If you love something, set it on fire

      3. William Chamberlain

        Could be we've got to the point of needing backburning

      And not a mention of Chemtrails in the whole video!?!? How can you talk about something and not mention it at all? Diabolically fascinating world we have created with our stories.

      1. Samrt firdeg

        @N. M. lol thanks for the laugh

      2. N. M.

        Chemtrails - made with the chemical dihydrogen monoxide, commonly known amongst the uneducated as "water"

    97. Ad-Dhuha Poetri

      Every time I watch Kurzgesagt video that related to science, I can't help from feeling useless knowing I contribute nothing to the society to prevent any possible earth damages. Let me just vanish into thin air....

      Maybe we could Geoengineer naturally with those crazy brown & green CO2 scrubbers. I think they are called trees or plants.
