We’ve all heard of Climate Change. Greta has told us all about it. David Attenbourgh has forced us all to watch walrus’s die. Icecaps are melting, Australia is burning. […]

Climate change: Earth’s giant game of Tetris – Joss Fong

To understand climate change, think of the game “Tetris.” For eons, Earth has played a version of this game with blocks of carbon. They enter the atmosphere as carbon dioxide gas from volcanoes, decaying plant matter, breathing creatures and the surface of the sea. And they leave the atmosphere when they’re used by plants during […]

Will Climate Change Stop If We Stop Emitting Carbon Tomorrow? | Hot Mess 🌎

Imagine that aliens landed and gifted us a clean, limitless energy source. And instead of killing each other over this technology, we decided to immediately transform the world into a carbon-free society. [animation shows closing drilling rigs, oil refineries, and coal and natural gas plants.] This wonderous source would power our homes, industries, cars and […]

Too late to stop Climate Change?

I get asked one particular question about climate change all the time. “So, are we already too late to stop climate change?” The short answer is that it’s never too late to take action on climate change. And the long answer is… well the rest of this video. You see I get where this question […]

SAVE OUR PLANET – Steep global temperature increase from continued fossil fuel burning

How People Began Using Fossil Fuels

Decomposing plants and other organisms, buried beneath layers of sediment and rock, have taken millennia to become the carbon-rich deposits we now call fossil fuels. These non-renewable fuels, which include coal, oil, and natural gas, supply about 80 percent of the world’s energy. They provide electricity, heat, and transportation, while also feeding the processes that […]

Artificial Leaf Technology Could One Day Power Our World

I’ve got some Big Green News for you: scientists at the University of Waterloo in Canada have come up with a new design for an artificial leaf. That means a whole new way of making cleaner burning fuels using a process that mimics photosynthesis! But…what’s an artificial leaf? And could it really help us move […]

Carbon Capture – Humanity’s Last Hope?

This episode of Real Engineering is brought to you by Skillshare. Home to over twenty five thousand classes that could teach you a new life skill. We rarely witness evolution on a timeframe short enough for a single human life to take notice. These changes usually occur over many lifetimes, the gradual drift of a […]

Carbon Dioxide Is Not the Worst Greenhouse Gas, Meet SF6

If we’re going to stave off the worst impacts of climate change, we’re going to have to break our dependency on greenhouse gas emitting energy sources like fossil fuels. But could a switch to more renewable sources like wind and solar power actually emit more of the most potent greenhouse gas there is? The gas […]

Renewable Fossil Fuels

Hey everyone! Welcome back to the swrm! Experts agree that everyone on our planet needs to reduce emissions below the sustainable limit in order to curb manmade climate change. But we all know this will be a mammoth task without huge financial input and it will take time that is quickly running out. Changing an […]
