The Entire World Is Burning

>>There are fires ravaging the Amazon. However, a story that most people don’t know
about, there are fires all over the place, all over the world. In fact, I wanna show you a map that helps
to visualize the fires that have been detected worldwide. So the orange areas is where you can see the
fires happening throughout the year, and this is certainly tied to climate change. A lot of this has to do with higher temperatures
in areas that you would not expect high temperatures in, including the Arctic, so we’ll get to
that in just a second. But according to reporting from The New York
Times, and honestly this is an example of excellent reporting from The Times, it’s drawing
attention to something that isn’t talked about enough. Wildfires contribute to climate change because
not only do they release carbon dioxide, a major greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere,
but they can also kill trees and vegetation that remove climate-warming emissions from
the air. So the fires cause the release of more greenhouse
gases. They also help to accelerate climate change
because they damage vegetation that helps to keep our climate under control. The Arctic is also warming twice as fast as
the rest of the planet. Since July, fire has charred about about 6
million acres of Siberian forest, an area roughly the size of the state of Vermont. In Alaska, fires have consumed more than 2.5
million acres of tundra and snow forest. There’s more but Cenk, would you like to jump
in?>>Yeah, there’s a quadruple whammy here. The two that Anna mentioned, it emits more
carbon and then the vegetation can’t absorb the carbon like it used to. But there’s also the peat normally is not
as affected by the fires, cuz it’s, now we have to use an uncomfortable word, it’s more
moist. But now because the planet is drier, the meat,
no, the peat->>Jesus.>>Is also burning which actually emits more
carbon than the trees, that’s a third disaster. The fourth disaster is, in areas in the Arctic
where they’re not used to these type of fires, the ashes are landing on the ice and they’re
black. They’re attracting heat, melting the ice and
releasing more methane. So it’s a quadruple whammy, these fires. And guys, I wanna be clear about the context. There are some areas of the world where fires
happen frequently, including the western United States and Sub-Saharan Africa. Now, what’s happening with climate change
is two things. One is, those fires are getting worse, and
then you’re getting fires in places that don’t normally get them. So for example, in California, the amount
of fires is 500% of what it used to be. So it’s not like fires didn’t exist before,
but they’re now five x of what they used to be. That is massive, massive okay. Now the second part is the Siberia is burning,
Siberia is burning. The fire in Siberia is as large as the state
of Vermont. Imagine a fire the size of the state of Vermont. That’s what happening, not only somewhere
on the planet, in Siberia. In Alaska, the Snow Forest is on fire. I’m going to repeat that, the Snow Forest
is on fire.>>Uh-huh.>>The whole planet’s on fire. For as much as the left is so animated by
this issue, it’s still not enough. And the mainstream media, for as much as they
say most scientists, blah blah blah blah blah, but we have to force and push and plead with
them to cover it, right? And then you’ve got the Republicans who are
like, nope I don’t see the fires.>>Yeah, so-
>>I don’t see them.>>So I wanna talk a little bit about strategy. I have so many more details about what’s happening
around the world. I wanna get to that as well. But let’s do a quick intermission to discuss
strategy, cuz that is important. So this is a crisis, climate change is a crisis. We know how severe this crisis is, and we
know how difficult it is to get real action accomplished in fighting it to mitigate it. I think one of the biggest flaws on the left
is our inability to put our small differences aside and unite for the greater good. Unite in order to have a broad coalition to
fight and get something done on climate change. I think we’re far too concerned with the little
battles here, maybe we’re not using the exact perfect language, maybe we’re not supporting
the exact perfect candidate for one group’s liking, whatever it is. Look, climate change, they’re the White Walkers,
right? It’s the White Walkers, they’re coming, right?>>Yes, that’s a great analogy.>>It’s coming. So the Lannisters and the Targaryens and the
Starks need to like put their differences aside. They can feud later. They can fight later but the time is now to
come together and fight. Look when it comes to Republicans, when it
comes to the right wing, and getting something done on their end when they want something,
they unite. They put all of their differences aside. The Evangelicals will support Trump, knowing
that he doesn’t represent any of the values that they like. But he does represent one thing, which is
deregulation, tax cuts, and the brutalization of people who they deem bad for their religion,
the gay community, and all that. They will turn a blind eye to the negative
parts of Trump to get what they want. When it comes to the left, though, it’s, but
is that group using the exact right language that we like? Who cares, who cares, we need to do something
about climate change right now.>>Yeah, well look, so I’ll add to the strategy. To build off your analogy, summer is coming. And since then, this is sounding scary, fire
is coming, and it’s here. And so who’s helping the White Walkers in
Ana’s analogy? The Republicans are. So I need people on the left to understand
and people in the middle and everyone else to understand that the Republicans are not
your allies and they’re never going to be your allies. If you think you’re going to convince them,
I’m sorry but you don’t know anything about politics, anything at all. The only thing to do with the Republicans
is to defeat them. You don’t understand. They get money from the fossil fuel industry. They are corrupt. You’re not going to convince them unless you
have a bigger check. The only thing they care about is checks. So this whole idea, and the mainstream media
hurts us the most here. They’re like, well, who’s winning the debate? There’s no goddamn debate. Three-quarters of the country already believes
that climate change is real and it’s man-made. We’ve already won the debate. That’s not the issue, the issue is corruption. So if you wanna save the planet, and people
think, this is partisan, then you’re stupid if you don’t understand the actual dynamics? No, you must fire every national Republican. If you don’t fire the Republicans, the world’s
gonna burn and you, that seems hyperbolic. No, it’s not. All of the Republicans, at the national level,
vote against taking any action on climate change. They all vote against it, why? Cuz they’re all corrupt. It’s not like they’re like, well, I happen
to agree with the 1% of scientists who don’t think climate change is real. Except that guy, he died in a fire. But still, I believe in the 1%, I don’t believe
in 90. Even though all the scientists, the 99% of
the scientists have been proven right year after year after year after year. You think the Republicans looked at that and
was like, no I’ve come to a different scientific conclusion, no they came to a different financial
conclusion.>>Right, so I also wanna extend that thought
to Democrats and while that corruption isn’t as severe on the democratic side let’s just
keep in mind there are members in Congress who have done nothing to help fight this crisis. And whenever they do something it’s the bare
minimum because many of them also take donations from the fossil fuel industry and so that
persuades their decision making more than anything.>>And we have to stop being polite. Here, name names. Democrats sell out and take fossil fuel industry
money all the time, okay? Here’s a name, John Hickenlooper takes a tremendous
amount of money from fossil fuel industry. His former chief of staff is now a top lobbyist
for the fossil fuel industry. And you know what the Senate Democrats said
Chuck Schumer did? They said we are now endorsing him. We don’t care about the 11 other people in
the primary in Colorado. We’re going to crush them on behalf of the
fossil fuel industry. Guess why? Turns out the fossil fuel industry has given
a lot to Senate Democrats. So hey they’re helping our re-election. Are they? So they give more money to the Republicans. But idiots like Chuck Schumer go, well, I
got little crumbs off the table of the fossil fuel industry! It’s Hickenlooper, everybody else stand down! Goddamn, no, no way we’re gonna stand down! Andrew Romanoff is an excellent candidate
there, you should look into him. And so look, we’re looking to do a town hall
that no one will have seen anything like this because main stream media they play pat-a-cakes. The main question that they’re gonna ask is
not how you’re gonna solve the problem. How are you gonna pay for it, right? You’re gonna have seven hours of how you’re
gonna pay for it. So I don’t know which Democrats will have the
courage to show up but those are the ones you should trust. If they run from real questions from real
moderators, and I’m not talking about Young Turks hosts, we’re going to get experts in
the field, okay? That is what our effort is about. If they come to this and they give the answers,
those are the ones you can trust. The ones who run, well, you’ll have your answer.>>I just wanna leave you with one final bit
of data that’s relevant to this discussion. And it has to do with Alaska, since you mentioned
Alaska earlier. So this summer, parts of Alaska broke records. Anchorage reached a high of 90 degrees on
July 4th, when the average temperatures for that day are 75 degrees. In Alaska fires have consumed more than 2.5
million acres of tundra, and snow forests, leading researchers to suggest that the combination
of climate change and wildfires could permanently alter the region’s forest. The planet is on fire. We do not have a second planet. We must act
right now.

  • How is climate change affecting you? Leave a comment below!

  • Intersteller! the movie should have used global warming as the reason for the need to find another planet, not nitrogen 😄😄. let the planet finding begin!

  • Some say the world will end with fire — some say ICE, the International Corporation of the End. Tribulation begins next month on 09/23/19, just after the quadruple witching hour on Friday 09/20/19. Tribulation is for teaching — not punishment. Seems Man does not learn without tribulation.

  • A small group of people have manage to convince just enough people that climate change is natural or does not exist, because their way of living would be negatively impacted if it is generally accepted that climate change is happening because of human behavior. How greedy and self-centered

  • Retarded bitch…lightning starts them humans start them power lines start them sun heating up piles of leaves and other plant matter

  • How can the planet be so dry if the ice caps are melting rapidly? We have more rain now in my state then ever before

  • Ana, you have literally covered how Evangelicals see Trump as everything they claim to be.

  • Deregulation to protect industry ensures that we'll see more deaths from asthma, heart problems and cognitive degeneration.   and a huge surge in the epidemics of cancers and autoimmune diseases… and fires.

  • 7:00 climate change is cyclical event which is compounded by global warming(result of human activity) these are two different things.
    2:35 PLUS we're left with less forest to combat the co2 from the fires.
    FUN FACT: cannabis plants mature faster than trees.

    planting cannabis forests might help in our fights against global warming caused by human activity

  • It sounds like Ana is making Obama's commentary about compromising…

  • Shit , lol Ana looks pissed

  • Just walked outside. I don't see anything burning.

  • I just looked outside and it's raining, therefore the whole world can't be burning. It's raining everywhere since it's raining here.

  • The House is on fire mummy, I can see it on my I phone ! Yeah but we have got finish the shopping first and then get our hair done. And there is a great sale on at madhouse dumbass mart….

  • Capitalism though…. it’s so great we had to destroy the planet to do it !

  • The oil industry owns both parties. Humans are doomed. The Saudis owns the oil industry.

  • Anna the most high is kicking these nations behind because they will not free us and give us what is due this election is really going to trip y'all out

  • God damn you guys ROCK!! 👍👍👍

  • Amazon fire crisis has been proven Fake happens every year .

  • Alaskan here. Had to Google "Alaskan snow forest". We don't call it that. We do get summer and fire is normal here but we could use a segment about how the fire is worse this year and most of Alaska's large population centers have been smoke choked all summer and it's going to have effects on our health.

  • How do we pay to save the earth and the human race simple we make sure their a human race still in existent to pay for it, because if the human race goes extinct all the money in the world will be valued at zero, because money a human concept that can not exist without people.

  • Don't forget all that bacteria sitting down in that permafrost that is due to be released into our atmosphere at some point…Viruses + bacteria + diseases we have ZERO immunity to…Don't breed, people, its gonna get ugggggllly y'all will be eating yr house pets before were all done…and they sit around and "Debate" ?? oh, and "pray" they're always fuckin' praying
    Sellout dems can kiss my black ass

  • STOP SAYING "save the planet!" The planet is doing just that, attempting to save itself from human destruction. We need to save life on this planet. The planet Earth will be just fine once we are gone. We need to save human existence.

  • you guys are about 5 days late on this story. pick up your climate coverage

  • 1 – Thank you for demonstrating the conscionable act of bringing these worldwide fires to the attention of your viewers. 2 – I suggest we immediately develop a PDF or Planetary Defense Fund which takes in donations from all across the globe with one single, unified cause: to combat all the wrongs perpetrated on our defenseless pale blue dot, Earth. Right now, if we had a meager few millions of dollars there, we could immediately begin plans to put out these Siberian fires for instance. And 3 – we need to bring copious political pressure on that new lunatic, JAIR BOLSONARO, running things in Brazil – home to a great percentage of the Amazon Rain Forest – where he wantonly allowed thousands of fires to be set in order to needlessly clear land so that developers can raise cattle and grow palm oil plants. If we band together globally that will have far greater consequences for the future of our planet than all the corrupt politicians pretending they care while taking massive handouts from their Big Energy donors.

  • Great show

  • Leftists are feral animals. There’s no chance that they’ll all unite.

  • Why should we worry We still have amazon .com

  • Climate change is making uninhabitable parts of Alaska habitable.

  • Climate change is a hoax. Humans cannot affect climate! Stop with this narrative that humans affect climate change. No matter what humans do there will be fires.

  • This is so horrible.

  • From Alaska can confirm MASSIVE FIRES EVERYWHERE and they're getting worse

  • looks like the middle of america is the only place in the world not burning and we had over 100 tornados last spring THIS YEAR
    ……….we're gonna need a bigger boat

  • I grew up in the northwest corner of the northwest territories of Canada… something that people miss, quite often, is that the winters are staggeringly cold, but the summers are blazing hot (not quite "equator" hot, but hotter than in temperate zones). 
    So, wildfires can start in the summers, just like they will anywhere else, and the heat in summer is just as severe (and getting worse).

  • "We don't have a second planet' We actually have two others, Mars and Venus… Mars is too cold/dry, and Venus has waaaay too much green house gasses/acid rain to be remotely habitable. Sooo… basically, we're turning Earth into Venus. Good plan!

  • The population grows, and more people start fires, so there is more fires.

  • The Earth moves closer to the Sun every year. Ana fails to mention that part…

  • One good thing about TYT, Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, and all the dishonest papers, they keep you on your toes. And I do appreciate that especially with TYT. They're very sly with the stories they pick and the coverage they provide. It keeps those research skills sharp.

  • stop eating soy retards maybe they might stop the burning of the amazon

  • If the moist meat is burning… cenk.. you probably want to go see a doctor and get that checked out.

  • It's funny TYT put so much effort into this story yet they conveniently forgot to mention fires are down the last 30 years and overall forest growth is up.

  • KJV | Revelation 8:7 – The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

  • this horse face woman is dumb

  • Even worse, Australia is heading into our fire season…

  • The world is burning but obviously that's not sexy enough and financially important let alone popular cus it's not Hollywood famous or Instagram popular

  • integrity is the issue to cover the real news [remember the days were the real breaking news story was like gold to cover] you guys have integrity [god help you] i myself are using my skills to help in that way but im in the rabbits hole too far and reality seems to be wonderland now

  • Moist Meat. We got it Cenk.

  • The Amazon fires were started by farmers.. not climate change

  • at this point, the only way we can get cuckservatards to care, is to burn down their homes and blame it on climate change.

  • Ready folks, my husband and I are ready to storm Washington. It's worse than we could imagine, no clean air or water, temps so crazy you can't go outside. Forget about landscaping, gardening, being sufficient if your environment is unsuitable. !(70's some where aware, but no one listened. I hope the earth is as resilient as some scientist say, but we need to act now!

  • The Right Wing, the enemies of Mother Earth and Humanity

  • I gotta say, when you act this hysterical it really discredits the points you're trying to make.

  • Happens every year calm down

  • BURN 🔥!

  • OK guys I love y'all, but is it really excellent reporting to say that burning trees produces more greenhouse gases and reduces the amount of vegetation capable of absorbing it? Really?

  • The donors that give money and support Donald Trump want the same crap he's pushing which is a whiter richer America..and if he wins again it would be because just that and the electorial college being bought off. Which honestly I already think it has been..

  • Eating LESS MEAT can help a LOT. Please consider this.

  • Please read "The Uninhabitable Earth" by David Wallace Wells.

  • It's way past time to start taking drastic action to stop greedy billionaires from destroying the planet's ability to sustain life.

  • Ok, climate change is really bad and the GOP is very corrupt… But let’s also not forget that your very own AOC and Justice Democrats, when given the chance to propose a deal to transition to a greener American economy, produced a bill which is essentially all leftist policies ever conceived crammed into one big law. And then you sit around and wonder why you keep losing? 75% of Americans agree that climate change is real and man-made. That does not mean that 75% of Americans agree that to resolve it, the US must stop using nuclear energy and mindlessly send American resources to poor countries. As a matter of fact , opposing building up nuclear energy in my opinion contributes to climate change. But that’s only a sidenote. Be a little more conciliatory to people who are on the left , but only to a degree and not all the time, and maybe you can actually come together around reasonable policies in the middle rather than fight over meaningless details from the fringes.

  • Dave Rubin will probably support the fire because it fights Marxism

    He said something like that about the Brazilian president

  • Wake up America wind power and solar heating it is SO simple, why are you SO greedy ?

  • Why do you continuously use God's name in vain on your videos, Chenk? Why don't you try using Allah's name in vain, as in Allahdamnit? You afraid you'll get your ugly head hacked off while you're making a video out by that bush?

  • It's amazing how utterly hysterical and stupid TyT and democrats are on virtually everything.

  • I'd like to fact check you if that's okay. The idea that the Amazon rainforest produces 20% of all earth's oxygen is a misnomer, considering that the entire world's atmosphere contains about 21% of oxygen. The Amazon isn't capable of producing that massive amount. Sure it holds a large surface area but the actual number is closer to 0.1%. A large proportion of oxygen comes from psytoplankton in the oceans.

  • haha this is like news for retarded people xD

  • What y’all took so long to report on it !!!!!!!!

  • the republicans only care about how the high amount of money they get from the fossil fuel industry even if it is at the earth's expense and thats the saddest thing

  • Fake news


  • On point as always. However, I would like to see you talk more about the number one contributor to climate change, environmental pollution, ocean dead zones, water shortages, deforestation etc., which is the meat and dairy industry. 90 % of the deforestation happening in the amazon rainforest is due to animal agriculture. Corrupt politicians and corporations aren't the only problem, the widespread demand for meat (especially for beef) in today's society is an even bigger problem.

  • Thats very cute, these libs think they’re on the left.

  • Trump supporters denying climate change should be forced to live in towns and cities most affected by the changing climate – fires, flooding, mudslides etc!

  • Dam you. Im gonna throw a snowball at you. Teach you a lesson. IT GETS COLD IN N.E. USA SOMETIMES! THINK ABOUT IT!

  • It's already to late.

  • This is the way the world ends…

  • Freudian slip on the meat Cenk! Get food woke and stop eating those soybean fed farm animals! @t. They're slashing and burning over this nonsense! TYT needs to go vegetarian/vegan and quit the bullshit!

  • An untold story regarding Alaska is that management in the weather service have decimated the offices throughout the state, having ended services previously provided the public, to winding them down to one person each thereby severely restricting what the remaining employees can do for the public resulting in a lack of weather data, accurate climate info, service to the public and mariners among other services, all while weather is more important than ever and has been devastating to the people of Alaska. There is virtually nothing said about it yet it is scandalous with real life consequences.

  • I live in Jamaica. I'm use to warm weather but holy crap is it hot these days and the average citizen here don't have AC so we have to bare it. So we need to get this global warming ish to slow down or stop.

  • We need a big rain storm then

  • what, no trolls?

  • This has nothing to do with the "left" uniting behind an issue. It has to do with basic psychology…. Short term benefits always outweigh long term gains. It's far easier to cut taxes or deregulate because that is something which impacts people and companies immediately. However it's a much harder argument to convince people to pay more taxes and take on more regulations to fix intangible improvements that people won't experience until 10 years later.

  • Michael Seo = Useless. Dickless. Failure.

  • winter is dying

  • I live in Anchorage, Alaska. A few weeks ago they evacuated all of us from our condos. The police forced us out and said we had to go because there was a 15 acre 60 ft fire behind our complex. The last 2 weeks we've had to keep our windows closed and we don't have AC. The smoke from outside burns your nose after some time.

  • Hmmm, I remember a time when Cenk use to pretend like the right were just a bit naive and they lived in this bubble. Today I hear a change of tune, now it's they don't care it's about the money on whose check is the biggest but like why can't he see that these same people know and understand about their own racist ways and that's funny,(²bcontinued)

  • If the planet was just in the middle of space and NASA's scientist and all these astronauts that claimed they visited space why wouldn't the wind blew own thru to space, umm unless there was this "firmament" over Earth keeping us inside? Hmm Sky Daddy is doing his thang. (²bcontinued)

  • Question, what group of people is wholly responsible besides the Asians? The so called Caucasian. Every since they have been on rulership they kill steal and destroy. Whether it's people's lives this world everything but they say that Africa is a shit hole. I been to differ. Everything Caucasians touch they curse. They for the most part are arrogant think this country is the best and every prideful and bike thing they can think of. America is a place where the no such thing as morals.(²bcontinued)

  • They will bring up foolish debated to beat the morals, that are guidelines set up for us to go by, right out of your head. Just because you don't see anything wrong with people having no morals and you think that ok is still a form of evil. It's no different that the sickness and wickedness of the demonic Republican. (²bcontinued)

  • The more you try to speak understanding to most of you it's like you could careless then start with the tin foil hat non sense and the mocking comes after. Now that man had done and did what he wanted because those people back before the stone age's were dumb and we the people today are so smart now the planet is on fire. Even though Yah is allowing it you can't blame him because warning comes before destruction. We were given free will to do the right thing or the wrong things and the choices we all have made were our own and I completely own mine. (²bcontinue)

  • Now that I know Yah is the one who controls weather and natural disasters, for all of you who were arrogant and prideful because "America is number one", your arrogance has given God the ammunition to open prophesy. There is LIFE AND DEATH IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE. All who have laid their hands and mouth on His people and treated them like they didn't matter your time has come. THE WORLD IS BURNING. America are you ready for his arrival?!?!

  • Need a cooling core and human waste management.

  • Cenk covered this well. Pay attention!

  • Liar spread fear much

  • Biggest common since ever when the trees burn theres nothing to suck up the carbon…..get it? Lol

  • Her source is Time Magazine LoL

  • Money is the root (or is connected in one way or another) to just about every main problem we face and cops are here to protect and serve the highest bidder

  • meat makes me moist

  • The Brazilian president started the fires in the Amazon.
