This video is part of a series about climate change supported by Breakthrough Energy a coalition founded by Bill Gates, that is working to expand clean-energy investment and support the innovations that will lead the world to net-zero carbon emissions.
Also a special thanks to the team at Our World for helping us out with data and research!
Sources & further reading:
Since the Industrial Revolution, humans have released over 1.5 trillion tonnes of carbon dioxide or CO2 into the earth's atmosphere. In the year 2019 we were still pumping out around 37 billion more. Thats 50% more than the year 2000 and almost three times as much as 50 years ago. And its not just CO2. Were also pumping out growing volumes of other greenhouse gases such as methane and nitrous oxide. Combining all of our greenhouse gases, were emitting 51 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents each year.
And emissions keep rising but they need to get down to 0!
