This video is on a topic that strangely results in skepticism so I'd encourage you, if you don't believe anything said, to look at the number on the bottom left of the video when something is said, find the corresponding number in the description, and read the source of the info. Every assertive fact in this video was researched and published by someone with far more qualifications than myself so those references are the ones to read to learn more.

Conspiracy: world powers are intentionally warming and cooling the planet in order to access untapped oil in the future when reserves run dry. It's sounds so selfish and completely not in the interests of humanity so I can only assume they have atleast considered and tried to work out how to make it feasible and profitable.

+Van Ivanov Wow you're a nutcase. https://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/global-temperature/ https://climate.nasa.gov/evidence/ There is the evidence.
Van Ivanov (3 months ago)
Polar ice caps reached new records, in recent years. Recently, people have been saying that it getting colder is a sign it is getting hotter. To top it off, global temperature measurements from around the world if anything are going down lately, not up. I really do wish it was warming, as all the most prosperous times in history were during warm periods, several degrees hotter than today, back when they had vineyards in Scotland and didn't see snow. Back when Greenland was Green. Unfortunately, "facts" today means computer models and statistical manipulation. Not observation, not history, not reality... but what you can pen to paper or shop in a computer alone, which must not be met with any skepticism lest it reveal how paper-thin it is.
mathphysicsnerd (3 months ago)
Have you considered that people might be expressing skepticism at your chosen presentation of the facts more so than the facts themselves? A fact dressed up in rhetoric is very often responsible for just as much misinformation as a lie-much of language's meaning is contextual, after all.

I don't want to be mean but change is just a part of live. Climate gests warmer and then it will get colder. Fighting for preservation of things that do not work anymore is just like a XIX century workers movement which gole was to destroy machines. I honestly can not understand what's the problem with change?

I remember 15 years ago that the prediction by now is that we would all be standing in water because of the ice melting. Hmmm...I wonder what happened? Could it be that this 'warming' is a natural occurrence and that scientists don't really know what a small temperature rise will cause??

One thing I don't get about Greens. You often talk about the animals you care about, and how we must follow green practices to help these animals. And yet, recently, you've talked about how cows and hens and etc., the animals you ostensibly try to protect, are causing as much CO2 pollution as all the trucks and planes. In which case, you're recommending the extermination of life, so as to protect life? Kill things which breathe? That has been done before... killing large number of wild animals, such as camels, for the sake of Global Warming, mass killing for Global Warming. Another example, is when a cure was being discussed for Malaria. And the comments were filled with Greens, saying we should not cure malaria, because it is killing Africans, and thus lowering the population surplus, much the way of the fictional Ebeneezer Scrooge's concern for the surplus population. Of course, the most prominent example was the UN's official desire to reduce the human population to 10% of what it is today, the only means by which this would be possible being mass genocide. And the public adoration of Genghis Khan, who murdered millions of Chinese, to the extent it is believed it reduced Global Warming. Ironic... since he killed most of those people with huge, CO2 producing fires. This leads me to wonder if the point isn't the production of CO2, but the existence of CO2 producing lifeforms, that is offensive to Greens, which would make their organization a sort of religious human sacrificial cult. This would match well with all their policies, that talk about putting Gaia first, and humankind second.

Additionally.. shouldn't we all be cheering? Your green persons claimed there would be NO ice caps, that they'd ALL BE GONE, about a decade ago. Instead, they reached new record extents of ice, a few years ago. The ozone layer was meant to be gone by now... shouldn't you be happy? Nothing you say comes to pass... isn't that great since you always predict doom and gloom?

Dude can you make a video on the following -why airplane models are numbered the way they are, the basic classes of airplanes in use today -route economics (when do airlines add a new route, what defines a new route, why do routes even exist), -how the hub and spoke model really works, what are airplane hubs and why do airlines have them, why do some airlines prefer point to point connections and others prefer hub and spoke models. -Which planes are suitable for which operating models. Twin Engine, Vs triple Engine, vs Four engines , when and why are some layouts more preferable to others. -anything about cargo planes. It might be obvious or intuitive to many but it really doesnt make sense to me at all, but this is all useful info.
