  • Just amazed at how the animations of Kurzgesagt improved over the years... I still remember how I watched their videos during junior high school for assignments, and looking at it now, it's just a whole new level! Kudos!!!

  • Calling us lizard men is offensive

  • No ignorance it is all true

  • any word I try to say to explain the such quality of this video, and the feeling that this video left me, would be a failed attempt and no moral, this video should be for history

  • Y do people dislike these videos edit: it was the brown dwarfs

  • can you answer this? the sattelites will melt because they are near the sun and they are made of metals.... so we will need to use thermosetting plastics to make the sattelites... in that way we don't we don't have to go to mercury (even tho we can't it is way too hot). but the thermosetting plastics won't be enough. what material will we use?

  • Do you want Snowpiercer? That's how you get Snowpiercer.

  • im a brown dwarf please help im depressed

  • A big risk but may save thousands of years. :3

  • The west coast forest mega fires are we caused by democrat super legislatures who prevent forest management. All climate change policies are just to extra maximum amount of money from the people and beat us into the stone age. There I said it.

  • Do yoga and learn to use the most sophisticated machine on the planet that is your body.... All other problems in the world will go away with enough people looking inward for well-being and not outside.

  • Nuclear energy for the win

  • Thank you for this

  • Our solar system is warming. Not just this planet.

  • i feel sad for the brown dwarf

  • 5:02 the way she showed her brain.

  • This has got to be one of the stupidest concepts ever devised! Any space faring civilization that could construct such a thing, would find it much easier to simply transfer to another planet! There would not be enough material in that solar system to construct such a thing! The people that came up with this, obviously did not think this through!

  • Türkçe altyazı desteği istiyoruz

  • ...wow...

  • Our first step on becoming gods

  • geostorm

  • The most ironic and saddest feeling of loneliness is feeling lonely in a crowd

  • all i need is mashed potatoes from kfc they put hella butter.

  • Covid 19 is joke compare to Ebola

  • Memory Cells be like : F*ck you bacteria

  • But chemtrails aren't real! You lie!

  • odiei

  • If we do the artificial cooling for a few eons and then stopped: *Self Destruction System Initiated*

  • I'm a cynic. It's just my life experience. I don't really expect humanity to prove me wrong.

  • sooooo is no one gonna mention that this is plagarized off Logic's album EVERYBODY?

  • this channell is on different level. Animations, topics. Guys (I assume guys because its impossible for one person to do it al) you do great work and make our planet more aware thank you soo much. Every little change can help.

  • government could just start planting seeds on a continental scale. turning the planet green again. enforcing laws that every person should plant at least 5 seeds. as soon as one dies. they are forced by law to plant another one. something like taxes but different.

  • worst scenario like film " the matrix " :D

  • What if imposter arrive to moon

  • I'm in this video and I don't like it

  • Matrixes

  • We're geoengineering now. Atmospheric aerosol spraying... AKA chemtrails.

  • if you continue voting clowns like trump, end is near

  • "The world is screwed up. But we can fix it. In a few days, this year will be over, and we'll get to try again" That didn't age well

  • How come when I tell people chemtrails are real and are fucking with our environment Im called a conspiracy theorist but when this guy says it people accept as truth and move on?

  • 1:35 is just overkill to nature

  • wow, the only 8 minutes I didn't waste


  • Whole world needs to declare War against China.

  • U forgot UY scuti

  • And also you can ise white holes to keep the wormholes open. I did a science!

  • So what if we just moved the planet a little further from the sun? (Does that get me the polluting medal of pollution?)

  • If this dose happen I hope it dosent turn out like the movie geo storm

  • Would it have been better to have less greenhouse gas in the air and go into the next glacial period? Do you think nothing goes extinct when we have glacial periods? We've put off the next one. And more heat and co2 means stronger winds we can get energy out of and more food and biofuel production.

  • Might have to? They are already doing it...Is this channel funded by the globalist cabal too?? What did I click on? Get Frukt Bill Gates, give your vaccines to your own children you psychopath. I'm surprised they didn't say being transgender also reduces CO2.

  • Whoevers controlling me give me the power of God I will protect this world

  • "They're a sort of failed star, and we'll now stop talking about them" - my parents talking about me

  • We would need reusable rockets *Elon Musk has joined the chat*

  • Nobody’s talking about how this is based on scale of the universe made by the creators of BFDI (Cary and Michael Huang) :/

  • While we're focusing on climate change, space exploration and other mundane human issues, little did we know the true owners of earth are slowly taking over and neutralizing their enemies by sheer numbers. Been nice living with you all

  • Mitochondria at once were independent organisms inhabiting larger communities what had learned to specialize in extracting potential and producing kinetic energy from their environment. Does that sound like anybody you might know? The mitochondria had grown intelligent enough to communicate with the larger organisms and to establish an arrangement with their communities. It was the correct solution to a frighteningly familiar dilemma.

  • what if nothing exist universe,planets,galaxy,color, and etc

  • I want the calendar, pleaase..!

  • Sudoku, Tax Forms , and String Theory

  • in comparasiotion offanic food is more ecological and require less land to industrial food

  • 1:41 Fixed

  • Has anybody been clever enough to ask why you use a two dimensional schema yet? And would you tell them if they did? In the case that you do not know, I can spot you.

  • Are we just gonna ignore that inhaling sulfur dioxide in even low quantities is extremely harmful? Especially over the long term?

  • This planet looks cool. We should start living there.

  • Literally the plot to snowpierce

  • 30 October 1961, russia has dropped the 50 megaton TNT also known as Tsar Bomba at Novaya Zemlya island. The BOMB was been carried by TU-95 plane, it's the biggest bombing plane in that day. The high of the mushroom cloud is 64 kilometers, the shockwave is 7000 kilometers, you can see it even when you are at 10.000 kilometers. it broke the TU-95 plane radio for more than a hour. The plane drop the boom at 34.500 feet. The light is still visible even when you use black glasses.

  • Woah it's been days since I left this on my "Watch Later" and then I saw Mt. Pinatubo, and then I realized that this is Kurzgesagt and not any Philippine Channel

  • Bro u got the indian flag wrong at 4:09...🙏🙏

  • We started our story at the first second. We haven't quite reached the span of minutes just yet.. our channel has only been going for a couple years or so.

  • Who would win: years of natural selection or human trying save the nature?

  • :))

  • "I'm pokimane?" and... "Yes and all her tier 3 simps" :D

  • It's always "what are you" not "how are you"

  • It's always "what are you" not "how are you"

  • How will you make a mirror bigger tha the sun

  • Me trying to finish my 3 hour assignment in 15 minutes: "get smart fast"
