    The most environmentally conscious straw: Just using the GODDAMN face hole you were born with. I dunno what kind of straws Cavemen used to derive nourishment from _their_ Big Gulps before Bloomberg nuked them, but they must have been pretty Eco Friendly

    No, carbon emissions in lithium batteried vehicles are much higher than convetionals due to how carbon intensive it is to get it.

    i'm still wondering why the straw argument didn't just end when it started with "how about we use the basis of civilization itself, our opposable thumbs, to grab the fucking cup, and pour the liquid down our mouths. you know, drink like functional fucking human beings?" If my grandma with arthritis can manage drinking out of a cup, so can you. argument over, no ifs ands or buts, moving on.

    I did not hear you say one intelligent thing about the role of CO2 in the environment, its role in healthy plant life on earth, its absorption into the oceans and the equilibrium with the deep ocean, its origins from massive outgassing of the inner earth 4 billion years ago, about how we are in a starvation era of CO2 for the biosphere. Your cute approach to thinking left out all the adult conversation. Lets learn to think again, like they used to.

    One of the best ways to reduce your personal CO2 emissions is to stop eating meat or eat less of it. But no one wants to talks about that. Anyways I wonder where a steak would have fit in on this scale?

    Climate change is a corporate issue not an individual problem. They messed up the environment in the first place they need to change the most to fix it.

    The only thing about the cotton bag is that you can probably hold 2-3x more material in it than a plastic bag so you probably need to use it about 50 times to be worth not 150

    damn, guess i can be pretty happy about norways hydropower. but then again, the less i spend the more norway sells to other nations so they dont have to make as much dirty energy... fml i almost thought i could be happy about spending to much time on this thing :(

    I don't really think you can seriously talk about Co2 emissions without at least mentioning animal products Although it might be smart for Bill and Melinda Gates to leave that out because many people have yet to be convinced anything should be done at all

    Even though you aren't using fossil fuels directly for the electric car those boys take TONS of electricity to charge and that is a lot of fossil fuels being burned to create that electricity.

    Eat less meat or go vegetarian/vegan. Production of animal foods causes massive emissions of CO2.

    i like the video although i really don’t like how you compared the plastic bags with the paper bags only by their production CO2 emissions. the point of plastic was precisely that it was cheap and easy to manufacture, but its problem is that it isn’t environmentally friendly AT ALL when it comes to get rid of. plastic isn’t as reciclable nor as resuable as paper or woven bags.
