TBT: Volcanologist Haroun Tazieff's warning about climate change in 1979

A 2 or 3°C increase in temperatures, polar ice melting... 40 years ago, volcanologist Haroun Tazieff was sounding the alarm. And already met with scepticism... #tbt

    Not scepticism. It's a debate, it's different. Science can't be politically pushed. Man-made global warming was, and still is, a hypothesis, not a theory. I wish people around the world would protest against pollution and the degradation of ecosystems instead of focusing specifically on such a debatable and complex subject as "climate change".

    Los entendido en la materia adviertieron hace ya 60 años de las consecuencias de la deforestación y el incremento de emisión de los gaces invernaderos, CO2 y metano, así que cuando llegue el colapso ambiental y la mortandad masiva y dolorosa de el virus letal homos sapiente, esta depredadora especie se exterminara por su imbecilidad colectiva.

    These people have always existed. People who see short term profits to be more important than human sustainability.

    Humble Tazhieff, face au grand Cousteau ,qui avait en 1979 le discours juste et une clairvoyance on ne peut plus exacte et vérifiée aujourd’hui ... Quoiqu’en disaient les sceptiques dont faisait partie Cousteau à l'époque... mais qui a bien changé d’avis ensuite en constatant les changements qui se sont opérés jusqu’à sa mort dans les océans !... Bravo ...un débat à revisualiser maintenant et qui devrait faire réfléchir les sceptiques et méditer sur la capacité de l’homme à refuser l’ évidence lorsque pourtant elle lui fait face!...

    SUMMER 2019? SUMMER 2018 Devastating forest fires in Spain, Portugal and California claim more than 200 PEOPLE’S lives, thousands of PETS, properties and WILDLIFE destroyed. SUMMER 2017 The horrific fire at the London Grenfell high-rise apartment building highlights the urgent need for all people across the globe to be trained in the FireBurnDoctor's DSNB technology that immediately eradicates the intense pain and suffering experienced from burn injuries. There is enough proof on the FBD website documenting the "Instant Burn Recovery" experienced by more than 2000 people from 58 countries. All these people did was make a two-minute phone call or send a simple text message with a picture of the burn victims (ANIMALS INCLUDED) within the first 30 minutes of burn injury to ask the FireBurnDoctor for help. The FBD treatment is a non-medical, non-therapeutic, non-physical intervention from a distance that does not interfere with standard medical treatment. Results include elimination of pain within minutes, disappearance of redness, blisters and marks on the skin within hours, no scarring, no grafting, and no cost. People are able to return to work in record time. This "Instant Burn Recovery" technology is called Distant Subliminal Neuro-Bypass (DSNB), and the FireBurnDoctor (FBD) calls himself the "Bio-Matrix Hacker." Anyone can be trained in this advanced technology which takes only minutes to implement and is free. Media no longer have any justification to ignore this most valuable and amazing FireBurnDoctor story. Global TV networks must now be forced by public demand to broadcast some of the documented cases of "Instant Burn Recovery" so that people worldwide know that anyone can get immediate relief when they are burned and that they too can be trained by the FBD team to take care of themselves, their children, and anyone else who is ever burned by fire. After global media coverage results in widespread public interest, the FBD team of volunteers will train teams of people all over the world, for free, in their effort to eradicate the suffering, death and disfigurement that results from burn injuries. The devastating statistics on burn victims worldwide is far worse than those suffering from AIDS, yet there is almost nothing being done to eliminate the damages caused by burns. The FireBurnDoctor's Burn Eradication Project eliminates the scourge of burns worldwide. Do your part today by sending this article to media reporters as well as to your entire online network. Anyone can get burned any time, including reporters. Do them a favor and pass on the FBD phone number with a link to the FBD website. www.FireBurnDoctor.com +1 818 332 6445 (call or text within 30 minutes of a burn) REPORTERS! DO YOUR PART! Don't just "cover" a Burn story, Call or text a photo of the burn victims. Then video the extraordinary results. The FireBurnDoctor is the World's First Public - Remote Doing Protocol to erase the pain and injury from severe burns INSTANTLY, anywhere in the World from a distance for FREE. RUSH - The Most Valuable film you will see this year. To save burn victims and much more !!! It's PUBLIC and it's POWER !!! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9rZbjJze3wg&feature=youtu.be RUSH - Award-winning Movie - extraordinary REMOTE DOING

    “We can plant trees!” But we won’t. The pursuit of profits will ironically lead to the demise of civilized society where one could make those profits. When crops fail, when mass extinctions fundamentally change the ecosystems we rely on, when people migrate en mass to flee droughts, fire zones, flood zones, etc.... we’ll be at each other’s throats and all this dithering and denial will be moot.

    There's no reasoning with greed. Unfortunately you just have to wait until the worst happen for them to come to their senses.

    Then find and fine the companies responsible for the chemicals, then find and in prison the government officials who lined their pockets with “lobbyists” money!! For example, who were the government officials who constantly lied and said nicotine wasn’t addictive and yet they know damn well it was all along and profited while millions died?

    This your burden America. A generation educated by religious institutions that has stunted your Men’s education and understanding of science that the only way they can even feel good about themselves is to pretend they’re smarter than scientists who actually study the field. Good luck America, not sure if you’ll survive the ignorance and arrogance of this generation of self loathing. Better hope the millennials can spot a grifter better than these guys.

    What an amazing team of true elite. I can listen them day and nights nd weeks long withour getting bored AT ALL. It is also veru hearth breaking that, 40 years ago, France was represented by such elite names. Nowadays its synonimus with sarkozy, macron, 50 weeks long protest, corrupted politicians etc.

    So volcanos produce exponentially more c02 than humans ever have, annually. But we should all pay out the nose in taxes and go back to the stone age. Lolololololol

    More bullshit. The amount of fear put into the sheep is unreal. They cant even predict the weather in 2 weeks time. You want alarm go back to 50s London where poisonous smog was thick in the air. Lead was taken out of petrol in the 80s. We were gonna be underwater by 2000...the ozone layer in the 80s and nuclear weapons. Target the children as they are the first to have fear put in them. If we have 12 yrs left nothing we could do now would reverse. The natural system is too vast and too vast and complex for scientists to even know. A volcano will spew more c02 into the atmosphere in one eruption than all the cars put together. Where was the outrage at real issues like big business burning the Amazon or geo engineering (i suggest you look that up)...the earth naturally changes. No one alive has experienced centuries of weather patterns yet we know all in a single second we are here. Bullshit. Absolute lies. Funny that all the gov and corporate backed scientists sow these seeds. If they were that worried then Teslas plans for free renewable energy would of be carried through and big business would shut down their operations tomorrow. Those of us that see through it know where its going...more money out of ordinary peoples pockets, only the rich permitted to fly and drive, fearful divided people easier to control, orwellian dystopian control, eugenics and poss wiping out of millions. By the way London has rarely surpassed a hot summer as in 1976. They change the names to suit the agenda...first global warming (when that didnt wash) climate change. Theres over 3000 scientists not affiliated to mainstream that have called hoax too

    Life is releasing huge amounts of plastic. Plastic absorbs heat and releases toxins.
