If we succeed in launching these many satellites then all the energy from the sun will be absorbed by the satellites and no energy will be released in the solar system therefore making it a dark place and lead to many other dangerous possibilities. 2.

  • I get so tired of people hating humanity. "WhAt GoOd HaVe We DoNe-" Conservation efforts, natural disaster control, prevention of extinction of specific species, but hey, some _plastic bottles_ am I right? I can almost guarantee that while you sit there and blabber on about how the human race is nothing and only pollutes, you're on some electric device, powered by an electric service that has set up what some may consider to be machines contributing to pollution, or fossil fuels. How about cars? Don't care if you use an electric car, you still use oil. Get your _head, out of your HAMSTER HOLE, AND STOP TALKING SHIT OR THROW YOURSELF INTO THE FUCKING VOLCANO-_ That is all.

  • Earth: Mostly harmless.

  • Honestly, sometimes the comment section ruins the vibes of beautiful contents like these with their stupid memes

  • Lamentablemente en México esto ha escalado a niveles sumamente mas preocupantes: los capos de las drogas al no tener donde lavar el dinero proveniente del narcotráfico han establecido sus propios negocios, plenamente legales con lo que podrían sobrevivir y refinanciar el lucrativo negocio de las drogas mundialmente. Esto es un problema financiero también, donde los grandes bancos mundiales (como HSBC) no solo no cooperan, sino que evitan se investigue a sus grandes clientes.

  • This covid hoax is going to be the focus on this very crucial time in human history . The outcome of this giant hoax will be the direction we fall into . We have a window of time here to take down the government and stop not only this hoax but all of their corruption . We have the power and we have few choices if we want to survive this attack on humanity . They plan to force vaccinate everyone except those in power and in those vaccines will be micro chips and deadly poison . Two types of vaccines , one that will kill you withing 10 days and another that will make you sterile and stupid but leave you smart enough to work and obey to keep the world running the way they want it . If we dont stand together as one race and stop them they will decrease the world population by 90% withing 8 months by making unlawful restrictions and paying the police to enforce laws that will violate all human rights and will be eligible for war crimes and crimes against humanity . This will be nothing short of Nazi Germany revisited . Nobody will be able to buy food, gas, or anything without the microchip , they will abolish all money and everything will have to be purchased by micro chip , they will say its for our own safety and that will be the death of humanity if we let it get that far . We must stop them NOW , we cant wait until the military knocks on our door to realize they are taking us to fema facilities which they have all over north america . they are set up to take those said to be covid positive and for those that do not comply . At these fema facilities will be everything that was in the gas chambers at Auschwitz . This is not a test people its now or never , we have a small window of time to stop them or its lights out for everyone

  • can you talk about more moons plz

  • Please explain that during fusion within the sun they produce more heavier eliments. Their terminal eliment is iron, which absorbs more energy than it produces during nuclear fussion. Thus the stars turn into red giants or implode into supernova.

  • banco , so Japanese people have the correct pronunciation

  • reminds me of the book Gun Germs and Steels so much, condensed into a 10 minute video.

  • i would die instantly right now so theres nothing to think about or worry

  • I love all the 'moderation is key' comments. Wow, so wise. Thanks for the insight.

  • I am not crying.😭

  • “Being one with nature is nice, but it’s not the path to irrigation systems or gunpowder or cities.” HARD disagree on that one. So many indigenous peoples and cultures were intricately tied to nature and lived very sustainable lives, and still had civilizations more advanced than Europeans. This video is well done but that statement in particular is quite ignorant. Edited to include time stamp: 1:59

  • You guys know that 80% of carbon emitted is from cargo boats and ships. A cargo, cruise, or battleship can emit as much carbon as millions of cars. The most logical way to combat this would be to decommission unused naval units and limit foreign trade. Not putting a tax on the average person who isn’t contributing to it. The current legislation being proposed is a fraud

  • How evolution works: It doesn’t. Lol

    • Uneducated troll.

  • what bird are you?
