Why Climate Change Is a Threat to Human Rights | Mary Robinson | TED Talks


Climate change is unfair. While rich countries can fight against rising oceans and dying farm fields, poor people around the world are already having their lives upended — and their human rights threatened — by killer storms, starvation and the loss of their own lands. Mary Robinson asks us to join the movement for worldwide climate justice.

  1. Its a really good thing that the atmosphere is not nearly as sensitive to the co2 change thus will never be that bad.

  2. https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCmNRe9FK1pXKBISWAnQCYo


  3. Canada's Liberal government is spending Billions re: Climate change hoax. Trump was smart to leave paris accord money pit. Liberals have killed our Energy resource Canada in big trouble.

  4. Climate change is a physical reality, that is and will continue to destroy vast numbers of species, and the way we are going, us as well. Human rights is a concept only, an assertion of our superior condition, and is a gross conceit. Not offered to the other species we destroy and enslave. Personally, I am unconcerned with human rights; my concern is the continuation of all life, and not the gross murder by our gross arrogance.

  5. This is based on modelling and projections. All these extrapolations are wrong. They have always been wrong. Just sayin'

    The Global temperatures stopped rising in 1998, shortly after Kyoto was signed. That's according to satellite and weather balloon data from two independent sources. The computer models proved to be totally wrong. The number of days during the summer over 90 degrees in the nineteen thirties far exceeded the number of days over 90 degrees in recent times………… The polar bear population in the arctic back in 1965 was about 5,000. It's now over 25,000…………… Wildfires in the US consumed over 21 million acres in the US in 1938. In 2018 is was only about 4 million acres, an exponential decrease over 80 years……… Average corn crop yield in 1946 was about 40 bushels per acre. It is now about 150 bushels per acre. ……….There has been a 6% increase in the greening of the planet since this recent rise in CO2 according to satellite data……. According to a study on frequency and cost impacts of hurricanes tornados floods and droughts over the past century, headed by climatologist Roger Pielke, there have been no discernible increases in these phenomena and cost impacts may have actually decreased (this study was not funded by the oil companies either)….. Climatologist Jim Hansen predicted a number of decades ago that Manhattan would be under three feet of water by the year 2018. Last time I checked Manhattan is still above water. Al Gore said the polar ice cap would disappear by 2014. The polar ice cap area has actually gone back to the way it was in 1979. Historically human beings have been terrible predictors as to what the future will bring in terms of climate. Yet, we are constantly barraged by Apocalyptic gloom and doom. ……..

  7. According to the Vostok Ice Core Records, CO2 level changes have followed Earth's overall temperature changes at an 800 year lag for the last 800,000 years. That means that our current CO2 levels are the result of Earth's overall temperature 800 years ago. World leaders have convinced their dependents that this works in the reverse order, relatively quickly, and that we are to blame, so that they can tax us out of a false shared guilt in order to be able to afford to "fight" climate change, an unstoppable natural cycle. The following is the source of this information:

    Historical Carbon Dioxide Record from the Vostok Ice Core

    Period of Record
    417,160 – 2,342 years BP

    In January 1998, the collaborative ice-drilling project between Russia, the United States, and France at the Russian Vostok station in East Antarctica yielded the deepest ice core ever recovered, reaching a depth of 3,623 m (Petit et al. 1997, 1999). Ice cores are unique with their entrapped air inclusions enabling direct records of past changes in atmospheric trace-gas composition. Preliminary data indicate the Vostok ice-core record extends through four climate cycles, with ice slightly older than 400 kyr (Petit et al. 1997, 1999). Because air bubbles do not close at the surface of the ice sheet but only near the firn-ice transition (that is, at ~90 m below the surface at Vostok), the air extracted from the ice is younger than the surrounding ice (Barnola et al. 1991). Using semiempirical models of densification applied to past Vostok climate conditions, Barnola et al. (1991) reported that the age difference between air and ice may be ~6000 years during the coldest periods instead of ~4000 years, as previously assumed. Ice samples were cut with a bandsaw in a cold room (at about -15°C) as close as possible to the center of the core in order to avoid surface contamination (Barnola et al. 1983). Gas extraction and measurements were performed with the "Grenoble analytical setup," which involved crushing the ice sample (~40 g) under vacuum in a stainless-steel container without melting it, expanding the gas released during the crushing in a pre-evacuated sampling loop, and analyzing the CO2 concentrations by gas chromatography (Barnola et al. 1983). The analytical system, except for the stainless-steel container in which the ice was crushed, was calibrated for each ice sample measurement with a standard mixture of CO2 in nitrogen and oxygen. For further details on the experimental procedures and the dating of the successive ice layers at Vostok, see Barnola et al. (1987, 1991), Lorius et al. (1985), and Petit et al. (1999).

    There is a close correlation between Antarctic temperature and atmospheric concentrations of CO2 (Barnola et al. 1987). The extension of the Vostok CO2 record shows that the main trends of CO2 are similar for each glacial cycle. Major transitions from the lowest to the highest values are associated with glacial-interglacial transitions. During these transitions, the atmospheric concentrations of CO2 rises from 180 to 280-300 ppmv (Petit et al. 1999). The extension of the Vostok CO2 record shows the present-day levels of CO2 are unprecedented during the past 420 kyr. Pre-industrial Holocene levels (~280 ppmv) are found during all interglacials, with the highest values (~300 ppmv) found approximately 323 kyr BP. When the Vostok ice core data were compared with other ice core data (Delmas et al. 1980; Neftel et al. 1982) for the past 30,000 – 40,000 years, good agreement was found between the records: all show low CO2 values [~200 parts per million by volume (ppmv)] during the Last Glacial Maximum and increased atmospheric CO2 concentrations associated with the glacial-Holocene transition. According to Barnola et al. (1991) and Petit et al. (1999) these measurements indicate that, at the beginning of the deglaciations, the CO2 increase either was in phase or lagged by less than ~1000 years with respect to the Antarctic temperature, whereas it clearly lagged behind the temperature at the onset of the glaciations.

    Revised February 2003

  8. She left out the point that when you have families that are not confrontational and are brought up in this manner. There are many in the world that are not like this, because their parents knew how to discipline them, and share love amongst each other. Her family is different, and so she projects this image is this way with every family. This is the huge lie folks that they want to project with everyone. They project every family as being in this type of mold. Don't fall for it. Why ? They start having to shove their belief system down everyone else' s life because they project that everyone else is like this in society. Love does not shove anything down anyone's throat. Today we call them provacitors !

  9. The Rich, the Royal, the Chosen of Mil.Gov.Sci.Edu. will have electric cars, robot servants and drink rare wines on their sunny promenade decks. Workers' future will be straw sandals and manual Dalit labor and drinking from a garden hose. You better decide. If you're not Chosen, you're just a useless mouth to feed. The Rich, the Royal and the Chosen of Mil.Gov.Sci.Edu will replace every one of you.

  10. Oh jeez a post Christianity bleeding heart name dropper saving humanity. Is Ireland sinking.? Please shut up. Floods, drought it's normal climate. Nut job.

  11. The Club of Rome is a globalists organisation and was founded in April 1968 by Aurelio Peccei, an Italian industrialist, and Alexander King, a Scottish scientist. It was formed when a small international group of people from the fields of academia, civil society, diplomacy, and industry met at Villa Farnesina in Rome, hence the name. Mary Robinson the former president of Ireland is a globalist and also a member of this club of Rome and is also in agreement with the following reprehensible and untruthful statement. This statement is the foundation of the global hoax, which was later changed to global warming and the backtracking continues.

    ‘The First Global Revolution’:
    Club of Rome’s Report

    “In searching for the new enemy to unite us, we came up with…the threat of global warming…

    “In searching for the new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. In their totality and in their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which demands the solidarity of all peoples. But in designating them as the enemy, we fall into the trap about which we have already warned, namely mistaking symptoms for cause. All these dangers are caused by human intervention and it is only through changing attitudes and behaviours that they can be overcome. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself."

  12. (30:41) Corruption has appeared throughout the land and sea by [reason of] what the hands of people have earned so He may let them taste part of [the consequence of] what they have done that perhaps they will return [to righteousness].

  13. The Warmers' Major Premise is false, which is this: "We live in a closed system (like a greenhouse) that traps C02 and other `greenhouse gases.'"

    The fact is we live in an open system, in which millions of tons of excess substances that the earth produces go out into space never to be seen or heard from again. The air gets thinner the higher you go into our approximately 75-mile-high atmosphere until it melds with space. There is no ceiling! There is no top trapping anything!

    Forget about whether the planet is warming or cooling. Forget about whether humans are adding to either one. For anything that happens to the planet has absolutely nothing to do with C02 or any other substance produced by humans or the earth. Those debates are moot!

    Debaters have let the deceitful Warmers get by with this lie. Don't do it! It's false. Never debate their Major Premise. Rather, tell them they have to prove that we live in a closed system before you will go further into a discussion. And they really are discussions, because the Warmers will not and cannot debate, because they have neither any correlating nor causal evidence for their claims.

  14. How did this old woman get to this conference? Did she walk or cycle a bike? Doubt it. I'd say she was driven to the airport. I'd say she flew to California . I'd say she had a car waiting for her at the airport. I'd say she has a carbon footprint that is more than thousands of families combined. I'd say she is a multi millionaire. I'd say the burning of fossil fuels paid a huge part in her wealth creation. I'd say she got handsomely rewarded for this speech. She is a complete hypocrite. If she was genuinely worried about climate change and leaving the poor of the world behind couldn't she have given her speech through Skype? A joke.

  15. "I wasn't really impressed by the images of polar bears. It was because of the impact on people and their rights"… human rights are important, but don't let it turn into speciecism…

  16. Mary Robinson has helped cover up for the human rights abuses committed by her 'dear friends' in the Dubai royal family.

  17. Too many cars not enough good public transportation. Or a fleet of UBER cars is good. Go vegetarian or go vegan. Human population control via incentivized sterilization. Note, this does not mean forced or coerced, but young people need to be taught about population management. In an incentivized sterilization program a mother getting prenatal care could be offered a "well baby program" whereby she gets a govt. funded loaded card to pay for baby supplies, raising her out of poverty, allowing her child to have needed supplies, but to get the card you have to agree to getting your tubes tied. Too many people!!

  18. Such a boring speech because it lacks real concrete examples. This is the weakness of 9 out of 10 speeches on TED Talk. Without concrete, descriptive examples, not only would professors fail you on your report or speeches, but you just come out with a vague, time-waster, general, dehumanizing speech.

  19. IN his recent book, Contemporary Left Antisemitism, David Hirsh argued that the problem was turbo-charged by three events in 2001: the collapse of the Middle East peace process, the anti-imperialist rhetoric that followed 9/11 and the UN conference in Durban at which “Zionism” was designated a form of white racism, ****CHAIRED BY MARY ROBINSON***. This set the stage for, in Hirsh’s words, “an antisemitism which positions Jews themselves as ‘oppressors’ and … those who develop hostile narratives about Jews as ‘oppressed’.” In the great discourse of left identity politics, Jews were now definitively on the wrong side of the line: powerful, white, aligned with imperialism.
