The Paris Accord: What is it? And What Does it All Imply?



At the coronary heart of the need to get The us out of the Paris Arrangement would seem to be three factors: one. Nostalgia. The target on coal, an power supply that is starting to be …

    The accord did nothing to prevent pollution.

    listen….so is there a science to taking a large subject and condensing it down to a 5 to 10 minute script? If so…..can you share it please! this is great info!!! I've learned quite a bit from your 'Crash course' channel, FAR FAR FAR FAR MORE than i ever learned in school.
    what is the science please?

    We have an urgent planetary emergency, that threatens billions in a century or two, and we're not supposed to be "political"?!! Give us a break. Reality is real. Consequences are accruing. Stupidity is not wisdom, and ignorance is not knowledge.

    Alright guys here are two articles from MIT you can read them here if you want: http://news.mit.edu/2016/how-much-difference-will-paris-agreement-make-0422
    http://news.mit.edu/2017/mit-issues-statement-research-paris-agreement-0602

    But the idea of it is that even if the Paris Agreement were implemented in full, with total compliance from all nations, it is estimated it would only produce a two-tenths of one degree which basically means that nothing would happen, nothing would change, (NOTHING!)

    We are going to die whether Trump stayed in the agreement or he left.
    So I want you guys to justify you're blind hatred for Donald Trump.

    (and don't try to say that the Paris agreement was a step in the right direction because some countries haven't even agreed to the current agreement)

    The Paris Accord agreement is worthless but it makes liberals feel better about themselves.

    Just to point out here, the opposition to this is that the amount of carbon we pump out doesn't have any significant effect on the climate. No one is denying climate change itself.

    The environment has been a very important issue for me since I was very young. It really saddens me to see that there are sp many people out there who live in denial about how we are slowly killing our planet. All the data and all the visible proof, they consciously choose to ignore. And even more unfortunate is that these people hold positions powerful enough that they can actually adversely affect all the efforts others are putting in.
    Donald Trump's speech where he announced this decision was so grossly misinformed and for lack of a better term, included so much shit that has nothing to do with the entire point of the Paris Accord, that it was embarrassing to see that this is the man nearly half of the US population voted for. I am not an American, so Donald Trump sometimes just feels like a joke that is happening on the other side of the planet, but no. This affects me too, and why should the rest of the world suffer because of this idiot and his idiotic supporters.

    America is already going green. The Paris agreement had nothing to do with it though. It's just an expensive scam. We give money to other countries and they don't say thank you.

    You give us a quick rundown of how greenhouse gasses work, but nothing else on the extent of warming caused by the capture of UV rays by carbon dioxide. I don't know all the data on temperature and carbon levels throughout the world's history, but it seems fallacious to assume that societal scale carbon output is the cause of our current warming period without considering other factors. Even if carbon was the only factor we know of that indirectly affects temperature, it would still be unscientific to claim it's the cause without data to back that claim.

    But is it worth it? As global temperatures have risen, carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere have trailed near behind. Would clean cole plants, fracking, and safe nuclear energy be the best answers to balance economic impact and environmental impact? If it was a treaty, could a sitting president make such a treaty without consent and ratification from the sitting congress? Would it not be wise to place solar panels across the coming wall with Mexico, allowing energy to be sold to both sides during times of great sunshine(as it can not be efficiently stored without a ton of batteries or an elaborate water pump system that creates hydro electricity when the sun isn't shining and pumps water up a hill into a reservoir when it's not)

    I don't know if it's an issue of whether or not they 'agree' that it's a human-caused issue. I think it's that they don't 'understand'. And they seem to confuse belief with facts.

    Honestly, the agreement does so little for such high cost it really isn't worth it. Countries can find their own paths without being told how to.

    You should be addressing the specifics of the Paris Accord rather than climate change. It's bad judgment to support any kind of policy without identifying what exactly it is you're supporting.

    I felt this video came across as manipulative. You're appealing to an authority, in this case science, and using it to dress up and sell an idea without adequately explaining what that idea "is" or "means".

    Here's climate change simplified:

    Scientists: "The earth has been warming and cooling for millions of years. At earth's inception, life was not viable it was so hot. We've probably had an ice or snow-covered planet at some point too. The climate is always changing."

    Progressive Marxists: "If it wasn't for the industrial revolution we wildly speculate that the temperatures on earth would be EXACTLY THE SAME AS THEY WERE 400 YEARS AGO. We need heavy centralized, collectivist efforts to combat this."

    This deal was not going to effect climate change. to my knowledge it's a non-binding, which allowed trump to leave it, the contract doesn't say reduce but maintain same levels of CO2 ECT….NOT to reduce it. and it dosn't even come into effect till 2030…..the deal ends at 2030, £100s of billions wasted which can be used for better measures.

    so, this video isn't exactly about the Paris agreement. just more global warming talking points that everyone is already aware of. we've been taught this stuff in high school. there isn't really much information in this video that would help one understand what it actually is, and why someone would or would not want to agree to it. Yet, at the start of the video these people point out that a lot of people don't know anything about it so they shouldn't be voicing their opinions , yet it doesn't appear as if the people here know much about the details either.
