  1. Pretty bold statement; "The landslide WAS a result of climate change"…I would like to see the scientific data to back up that statement….I also like how those young trusting influential minds unquestionably just soak up the data they are fed and regurgitate facts they haven't bothered to research themselves….Sad.

  2. No volcanic eruptions aren't to blame . No cutting down co2 breathing trees aren't to blame .hell it's not even a Little something "us " non gov funded scientist s. Call solar cycles . It's me.. I'm eating too much red meat. Lmao

  3. If you irrigate the mountain meadows there will be a trickle down effect & the wells begin to fill again with groundwater. Collect the manure & use!
    Collecting rainwater at ground level and pumping for irrigation of mountain meadows would also help. Connect to ground level aquifer now & later!
    As the sea levels rise, this mountain meadow will likely become a local savior for the villagers. As the age old saying goes –> "Head for the Hills!"
    With this in mind, it is imperative to begin building irrigation & agriculture at higher altitudes as the Sea levels begin to rise even faster.

  4. I stopped everything, thought I would watch a few minutes and come back after a break outdoors, but couldn't leave this. At times near tears. We need a rapid paradigm shift to on a major scale create devices that remove the carbon from the atmosphere. We can do it as look what they did during WWII and manufacturing at tremendous rates, and that was many years ago. I was several months in Grindelwald Switzerland in 1975 and 1976. The resort I did kitchen work for to earn travel money… Hotel Sunstar, the workers lived in the old chalet, which I liked much better than the new one ha! There was a beautiful oil painting of the valley there where (I don't know today but probably not visible any more) you could see how the glacier receded in the maybe 80 years prior. I was amazed then at how much the glacier receded. You could still see the glacier from the chalet then. I hiked along it on solid rock and saw mountain climbers in training climbing it. So if I saw that then, there's nothing new in regard to the glaciers receding too fast. I bet all that is receded by far more than it was then, maybe none of it visible from the chalet. Sad.

  5. As long as we keep VW as the biggest car company in the world, that is all the matters, who need ice, water, and clean air?

  6. Interglacial Temps Have Been Tempered by Younger Dryas Event —
    The ‘Younger Dryas’ event disrupted the warming effect of the Milankovitch Cycle. Temperatures would’ve been much warmer and sea levels higher during our current interglacial period otherwise. Milankovitch himself said we were sliding into the next ice age a hundred years ago — however, CO2 levels increased and the Greenhouse Effect held sway. Now, we see a dynamic increase in global temperatures that will not stop unless we reverse overall greenhouse gas levels.

  7. Stop telling children the end is near, it's a lie and you know it… you are robbing them of a future, they are scayed and soon to be self harming depressed In 15 years they will get out of rehab and see another generation getting lied to, and say…WTF?, then attack YOU.

  8. Single events are not a sign of climate change. Decade long events are. If you look at the glaciers 100 years ago and today, the difference is very clear. The glaciers retreated hundreds of meters.

  9. Why when you talking about glaciers not mentioning that "studies show that solar variability has played a role in past climate changes. For example, a decrease in solar activity coupled with an increase in volcanic activity is thought to have helped trigger the Little Ice Age between approximately 1650 and 1850, when Greenland cooled from 1410 to the 1720s and glaciers advanced in the Alps". https://climate.nasa.gov/causes/

  10. Why is not one talking or investigating about the effect of all the polución on the sky made by the chemtrails or contrails? Most people are unaware of that because they are focused or glued to their cell phones and hardly look up to the sky … all those white trails on the sky are happening everyday and worldwide in almost every big city around the world… it’s sickening to witness that. I constantly heard in the news that climate change is caused by us (regular citizens) ignoring that mostly is been caused by big corporations… and Governments do so little to help, they are more interested on wars and destroying nature in the process.

  11. This is such a shocking bit of news. I was skiing in wengen and I went to Saint Moritz in the summer I loved writing on the ski lifts and seeing the beautiful animals graze Below in those wonderful fields of flowers and grass. And we went to the zugspitze also. My heart is breaking for Switzerland

  12. keeping the visitors happy is all that matters….isn't that great? visitors who pollute to get there, by car, by planes…this society is really fucked up. Only monies matter

  13. According to the Vostok Ice Core Records, CO2 level changes have followed Earth's overall temperature changes at an 800 year lag for the last 800,000 years. That means that our current CO2 levels are the result of Earth's overall temperature 800 years ago. World leaders have convinced their dependents that this works in the reverse order, relatively quickly, and that we are to blame, so that they can tax us out of a false shared guilt in order to be able to afford to "fight" climate change, an unstoppable natural cycle. The following is the source of this information:

    Period of Record
    417,160 – 2,342 years BP

    Methods
    In January 1998, the collaborative ice-drilling project between Russia, the United States, and France at the Russian Vostok station in East Antarctica yielded the deepest ice core ever recovered, reaching a depth of 3,623 m (Petit et al. 1997, 1999). Ice cores are unique with their entrapped air inclusions enabling direct records of past changes in atmospheric trace-gas composition. Preliminary data indicate the Vostok ice-core record extends through four climate cycles, with ice slightly older than 400 kyr (Petit et al. 1997, 1999). Because air bubbles do not close at the surface of the ice sheet but only near the firn-ice transition (that is, at ~90 m below the surface at Vostok), the air extracted from the ice is younger than the surrounding ice (Barnola et al. 1991). Using semiempirical models of densification applied to past Vostok climate conditions, Barnola et al. (1991) reported that the age difference between air and ice may be ~6000 years during the coldest periods instead of ~4000 years, as previously assumed. Ice samples were cut with a bandsaw in a cold room (at about -15°C) as close as possible to the center of the core in order to avoid surface contamination (Barnola et al. 1983). Gas extraction and measurements were performed with the "Grenoble analytical setup," which involved crushing the ice sample (~40 g) under vacuum in a stainless-steel container without melting it, expanding the gas released during the crushing in a pre-evacuated sampling loop, and analyzing the CO2 concentrations by gas chromatography (Barnola et al. 1983). The analytical system, except for the stainless-steel container in which the ice was crushed, was calibrated for each ice sample measurement with a standard mixture of CO2 in nitrogen and oxygen. For further details on the experimental procedures and the dating of the successive ice layers at Vostok, see Barnola et al. (1987, 1991), Lorius et al. (1985), and Petit et al. (1999).

    Trends
    There is a close correlation between Antarctic temperature and atmospheric concentrations of CO2 (Barnola et al. 1987). The extension of the Vostok CO2 record shows that the main trends of CO2 are similar for each glacial cycle. Major transitions from the lowest to the highest values are associated with glacial-interglacial transitions. During these transitions, the atmospheric concentrations of CO2 rises from 180 to 280-300 ppmv (Petit et al. 1999). The extension of the Vostok CO2 record shows the present-day levels of CO2 are unprecedented during the past 420 kyr. Pre-industrial Holocene levels (~280 ppmv) are found during all interglacials, with the highest values (~300 ppmv) found approximately 323 kyr BP. When the Vostok ice core data were compared with other ice core data (Delmas et al. 1980; Neftel et al. 1982) for the past 30,000 – 40,000 years, good agreement was found between the records: all show low CO2 values [~200 parts per million by volume (ppmv)] during the Last Glacial Maximum and increased atmospheric CO2 concentrations associated with the glacial-Holocene transition. According to Barnola et al. (1991) and Petit et al. (1999) these measurements indicate that, at the beginning of the deglaciations, the CO2 increase either was in phase or lagged by less than ~1000 years with respect to the Antarctic temperature, whereas it clearly lagged behind the temperature at the onset of the glaciations.

  14. For the same or similar reasons they melted over the last 20 million years+: it freezes it melts it freezes yep change the globe has always changed its the great cycle we as humans just dont like change. Here is the paradox for human existence if it was not for change we would not be here. Plastic thats the killer no natural phenomena. One day the Sun will go out who are you going to blame.

  15. Sad, and scary for the future of all life on this planet. I think that human beings think that they're not somehow connected to what is happening on this planet. Meanwhile, corporations are still fracking, pumping crude oil out of the ground, manufacturing plastics that are saturating our streams, rivers, lakes, and oceans while we obliviously live our toxified lives.

    May you live in interesting times. ~Chinese curse

  16. please check current weather map, oh hang on , what , record snow , take that you tree hugging hippies, global laming…….

  17. On a quest to talk utter bullshine, talk about doomsayer’s, experts say we are at a turning point, people are waking up to the scam.

  18. Warmer at the poles. Heat output from the molten core is not uniform. Greater output used to coincide with the equator but now more heat is directed towards the poles. Each ice age is preceded by about three centuries of warmer temperatures as this shift takes place. Ice ages repeat on an 80,000 and 120,000 year cycle, as if directed from a foci of an ellipse. The ice age has never really ended. What used to be over America and Europe is now at the poles. Once again the arctic regions will experience a tropical climate and the continent of Antarctica will be ice free. Ice free oceans in the polar regions will absorb sunlight instead of reflecting it precipitating another ice age on mid-latitude continents. Sunlight has a major effect on daytime temperatures, but overall temperature is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the internal heat source. That is why there is snow at the top of a mountain at the equator, but the sun will give you a tan. Despite a claim of global warming mid-latitude cites that formerly knew only a rainy season are now experiencing cold winters with heavy snowfall, something that never happened before.

  19. Less Ice and Snow on the ground = more water in the oceans. Once an Iceberg is floating, it melting does not raise the level, ice is 2/3rds the density of water.

  20. Snow is water molecules that sublimate, more snow in one location means more water evaporated somewhere else. The only reason for more water to evaporate is a higher temperature or the same temperature for a longer period of time.

  21. its funny that plebs question the specialists. one guy said, "well scientists should question these findings." to that i say, u can't question a topic when u dont even know the basics of it. the ppl u call "scientists" are like children questioning 2+2=4, when they can't even count up to 3. Forget educational degrees of doctorates and masters, u certainly dont need a piece of paper to tell that u understand something. But the thing is, the ppl who are claiming climate change is fake news, dont even understand the water cycle. its not even close to a peer review. these ppl are as good as antivaxxers and flat earthers.

  22. Well it sounds like their strategies working. Go out and buy some surfboards and get ready for a Beach resort

  23. Warming beats freezing. Conditions were much colder 1400-1800 than today,  "The Baltic Sea froze over, as did many of the rivers and lakes in Europe. Pack ice expanded. Winters were bitterly cold and summers were often cool and wet. These conditions led to widespread crop failure, famine, and population decline. The tree line and snowline dropped and glaciers advanced, overrunning towns and farms in the process. There were increased levels of social unrest as large portions of the population were reduced to starvation and poverty."  
       Then Jamestown and Boston were established….

  24. As I say, people will get what they deserve. That's the way its going to be. That's already been decided. No one is leaving the industrial world to live sustainably. My spell check doesn't even recognise the word 'sustainably'!! Not a sniff of it. We have a 5billion human surplus. Nature will exterminate them all, like any infestation collapses, and much else will be lost in the process, but it recovers. One thing you can rely on, if any people survive, they will not have learned a bloody thing. Its a good game played fast.

  25. God's Wrath is soon coming to Earth, Earth will face many Large Disasters as humans have become sick stiff neck sinners!

  26. Rain catching reservoirs should steadily be made at higher altitudes world wide to gravity feed water supplies as the glaciers disappear. Lots of them. Good public investment for kids to come, ya?

  27. don't build near mountains and flood zones, it isn't only until recently that people were forced to settle in villages and towns people in many of these places were nomadic and didn't stay at the foot of mountains for decades on end where things like landslides, rock slides, floods could cause such misery. Thank you again Europe!

  28. Once we can get our Political classes to understand that this GROWTH thing has to stop, maybe then we can do something about polution. Climate change, well, that has been going on since time began, i don't think we are going to be able to control the weather by increasing taxes.

  29. lol white mans creates a problem…… white man forces his problem on other races…. white man complains about the problem after shit hits the ceiling….. white man cries for solution …

  30. You will never stop 🛑 “global warming” OR humans pollution unless you live in the Stone Age and stop capitalism! infact it’s only a TAX on life! FOOLS this is a way company’s pivot and charge you more money the rich get richer and there products magically always cost more even with state of the art high speed manufacturing… CORPORATION MANUFACTURING YOUR THOUGHTS 💭

  31. There are still people in Switzerland like Werner Munter denying human caused climate change. Werner is a renowned and influential mountain guide who wrote the book on avalanche safety all pro mountaineers are required to read. He invented the 3×3 method of risk assessment. Deniers in Switzerland always use him as a reference. But he is not a climatologist or even a scientist. I just do not understand Werner's position as you can see the ancient levels of of the glaciers etched in the rock and marked out by the moraines. The places I used to ski in the 80's and 90' are totally unrecognisable. Change is normal, but it takes thousands of years, not decades.

  32. It is impossible to model the effects or even to cover all the aspects of the current extreme climate events in short articles, lectures or video documentaries because of the complexity of the many parameters. Additionally, with so many specialized areas of study, very few looks at the overall 'big picture' encompassing every aspect of the subject of climate change. Just one aspect not considered in models is the huge variation of crustal thickness on land and sea and the huge variation in the structure of soils, minerals, metals and magnetic materials at different locations around the planet. These variations have an immense bearing on the recorded magnetic fields at any one location and the variations generate localized variations at different times as a result of the quantity of magnetic material in each location. As the pole shift progresses, variations in the thickness and quantities of magnetic materials at different locations are already displaying huge localized variations in the magnetic fields around the planet. Currently, as a result of the pole shift, there are two main magnetic north poles and two south poles….these represent the intense poles of the core and the lesser intensity of the poles of the magnetized crust. The geographic poles remain the physical center of the Earth's rotational spin.

    Historically, this planet has seen surges of earthquake, volcanic activity and generally increases and decreases in temperature, but these changes have happened over many tens of thousands of years. Some changes have almost certainly happened suddenly as a result of asteroid strike, pole migrations and pole shift (see the current and predicted accelerating movement of the position of the North Pole at) http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/geomag/data/poles/NP.xy and have been accelerated by the effects of excessive plate movements causing extensive earthquakes https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/ (then click the cog top right hand corner, select Magnitude 2.5 + worldwide, then twice on the – sign on the top left side to see how many earthquakes have occurred in the past month. Earthquakes have increased by 20 times in the past 16 years in recent months! For volcanic eruptions http://www.volcanodiscovery.com/erupting_volcanoes.html activity now up to 79 from 3 sixteen years ago. See also http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/40-volcanoes-are-erupting-right-now-and-34-of-them-are-along-the-ring-of-fire Currently, as a result of the pole shift, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions (79 active volcanoes!) are on the increase and there are over 3,500,000 fissures in deep ocean releasing much greater volumes of greenhouse gases than man produces and pole shift will increase this volume. Hence the spike in CO2 recorded by the IPCC! (It is not us driving 100 times more for the past few years!) So prepare for more earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and more severe climate change in the future!  The next pole shift is well overdue and the last one caused mass extinctions worldwide. See also www.magneticreversal.org 

    One very good example of the current effects of sea-level rise can be seen with the Florida sea level rise  
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjZtdpD2XiE and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JbzypWJk64 & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zqfuie-fCzE where sea level rise is not to do with global sea rise but to do with pole shift as North America moves south towards the bulge of the ocean at the Equator. Coastlines approaching the bulge of the ocean at the Equator are sinking. Coastlines moving away from the Equator are expanding.

    In previous pole shifts, there is now strong evidence to show that leading up to such events, oxygen levels decrease as more poisonous and inflammable greenhouse gases are released from the increased number of volcanic eruptions, deep ocean fissures and earthquakes. In addition, following massive volcanic eruptions, without sun to allow plants to grow converting carbon dioxide to oxygen, carbon dioxide levels increase and oxygen levels fall exponentially. See  
    http://earth-pages.co.uk/2014/04/17/oxygen-magnetic-reversals-and-mass-extinctions/ Wild weather is on the increase monthly. Please see 
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVeRAaNokfQ ; Worldwide extreme climate change 2019. Many more problems are on the horizon, see

    The costs of the current increases in extreme climate events already exceed the world economic cost of recovery, so many will fail to recover. In many countries, even defense forces are already overwhelmed assisting those suffering from the increase in extreme climate change events. There is a possibility that the world economy could collapse as more and more food and manufactured 'essential' goods become scarce and power grids fail. There has been an increase in civil unrest in an increasing number of countries as a result of the effect of climate change and this can only increase. Tens of millions have already lost their homes, businesses and family members to climate change. At very least governments should warn us all to keep our critical documents in fireproof and waterproof boxes in safe locations and even photocopies in alternative safe havens in the event that an extreme climate event arrives in a previously historically safe area. To re-establish identity and critical documents take time and money at a time when everything else may have been lost. Those living in potentially vulnerable locations such as river banks, low lying coastal homes etc should consider moving as soon as practicable in the event that an extreme weather event occurs in their location sometime in the future.

  33. The sixth extinction; an unnatural history/Elizabeth Kolbert!! @mifuerzamorales/check the documentary post… The humanity continue!!The planet,it's the only coutinue for century's!!The big question it's…how many? In what conditions???

  34. Just over a year ago Iceland was covered with a massive snow storm.  No mainstream media channel covered it.  We are in a global solar minimum a several hundred year cycle of repeating weather.  Its all due to the sun nothing to do with man made climate change.  Termites put out more CO2 than man.

  35. Don't like to be negative, but this is what it going to happen they don't want people to know ! It will happen very fast when it begins. Please conciser this. We know the climate is changing, much confusion has been put out intentionally for good reason.
    This planet is heating up" has been for a while now. Global oceans have and are warming" fires, storms are exceeding records. A domino effect has begun. Here is the big one ! As the heat equalises through the planet, it will reach the core. That change will set off a global volcanic reaction and life as we know it now will be over and a dark time that will echo in history we will face 🙁 Most will forget what I said if you read this, and it's ok. Some may use it. There is also a reason for this that is totally unexpected but makes perfect sense. We may be lucky and doge it, but the change we need is not happening fast enough, and it's not just climate. Good luck to all, and love one another.

  36. The Swiss are worried because of the loss of ski resorts, while hundreds of touring cars are spreading their fumes over the snow. In the opening shots you can see that the alpinist’s plastic helmet is whiter than the background snow. How much soot does it take to make white non-white? If the albedo drops 10%, we still see it as white, but it means that that sunlight is absorbed, and melts the snow, leaving the soot on the surface, absorbing more heat.
    It’s easy to blame global warming, while it’s your own filth that is doing the damage.

  37. Climate change is not caused by pollution. It's caused by the north pole shifting on its axis, tilting the earth, and moving the climate zones a little at a time to more extreme temps which dry the soil and vegetation and melt the ice caps. The north pole has moved towards Siberia 2253 kms since 1841.

  38. It's all about the geoengeneering, manipulating of the weather, you must believe IPCC the liars of the world climate!!!

  39. The world is going to end soon, Heres why. The pope, who is the false prophet and the man of sin, Donald Trump, XiXing ping. Putin…Acts of God are called climate change caused by emissions. The messages just aren't being understood.
    Most of you won't understand this, but a few will.

  40. "Acid rain will devastate ecological systems planet wide" – "Ozone depletion will cause climatological collapse and skin cancer rates will soar" – "Climatologists are certain that the next ice age will occur within the next generation's lifetime" –  "The gypsy moth will undoubtedly be the cause for catastrophic deforestation in many of the areas they have invaded" – "Desertification models show that large areas of the African continent as well as north America will be swallowed by these ever expanding wastelands" – "Scientific evidence suggests that commercial fruit farmers will suffer economic disaster with the invasion and expansion of the tent caterpillar which will ravage orchards coast to coast."
    The sky has been falling for as long as I can remember. Good news goes nowhere and garners little government money for research. But politics and "science" that predict disaster and the end of life as we know it sells like proverbial hot cakes. And the bad news is always delivered with the same conviction and passionate proselytizing – that labels those who dare question or doubt "expert" scientific opinions, with all sorts of invectives – the kindest of which being "deniers." While none of this is an excuse for poor stewardship of our environment or the planet, this kind of histrionic display (married with greed) desensitizes society to the real need for environmental responsibility by offering one misleading distraction after another. And heaven forbid our "scientists" should ever admit that they are not gods,  and perhaps,  might not know as much as they would like us to believe.

  41. oh you can't sky year around now sounds like a sky problem too me and do you know how high up that is the air is thin and dry they where not thinking this ice and snow may melt some day and rocks will fall the Sci always said that some day all that snow and ice will melt and the air is to thin and dry too have snow falling all the time even when the temp is low

  42. So look at it from a positive side. When the glaciers melt we can possibly grow more trees and crops. On a glacier nothing grows after all.

  43. When the ICE AGE ended, millions of years ago, without man, everything started to melt, ALL by itself ! Mankind's contributions to natural global melting are less than minuscule. Get over yourself people, you are just too small to make any material difference.

  44. "Experts say…" Well then it must be true! Of course forty years ago they were just getting over predicting for over a decade that we were heading into an ice age. The northern hemispheres glaciers have been receding for three hundred years long before S'UVs. More hysteria!!!

  45. I think it's funny that nobody is addressing the solar influence on climate change. It's real, stop making humans responsible for everything. It's all for money.
    Climate changes every thousands of years. We're in a change period, think about it.

  46. Natural climate change……………….let's try and return to the objectivity of scientific and journalistic ethics, not hypothetical pseudi science greenwash, and then we might actually save democratic free speech from propagandising, and the planet from climate change alarmist extremists

  47. I'm not denying climate change, people who believe climate change is the end of everything are denying climate change. Climate change, it happens, with or without humans.

  48. 4c above 1880s too conservative 2100
    4c above today still to conservative for 2100
