Today’s youth have inherited a big, unprecedented climate problem to solve — and the eco-anxiety to go with it. Gen-Zer and activist Clover Hogan knows the struggle firsthand, but she also understands the path to climate action starts with the one thing you can control: your mindset. She explains why challenging the stories that keep you feeling powerless can help you take the first step to protecting the planet for generations to come.

  1. Im honestly accepting it. I hope it gets so bad that humans are forced to find a solution

  2. You need to go through the despair and denial before real engagement to action.

  3. My first–but not last–heartbreak was in the fall of 2016 when 60% of the Great Barrier Reef was destroyed in a matter of weeks. No one seemed to care that much, much less Australia that wrote of the tourism dollars they might miss (they are the leading exporter of coal on Earth by the way). And I am well aware climate change is just an aspect of overshoot. That's right; we had too many babies collectively and now we will all suffer, but worse much of the rest of life on Earth will too (and the fact I never had kids is the single best decision I ever made my entire life). The good news is that our current civilization is going to collapse, and in our passing, the load on the resources on Earth will be greatly reduced. The bad news is that the entire Earth will be in collapse right along with our civilization. There will be no winners with climate change, but that truth–that we are ALL the losers–we cannot deal with yet. In time, we will all come to terms with climate change if we like it or not. I'm 51, an older man by any metric I would say. I am hoping that I won't die of climate change, but in all likelihood, I very well might even as a well-to-do US engineer. And if I do, then most likely you will too. The facts are the facts.

  4. I really wanted to throw a brick at her but I can't afford a new TV! Arm yourself with knowledge, search for the truth from trusted scientists and then make your decision but always be aware time is very, very short.

  5. “I believe that the threat even greater than climate change is how powerless we feel in the face of it.”

    What a powerful talk. Thank you.

  6. thank you so much for this clover :') <3

  7. Honestly I think that the main and best way to solve climate change is through community action. You can make a difference as an individual as every actions counts but it is much more effective to get involved with your community. Whether it's your family, town, local community, school, workplace, etc. Community work is the most effective.

  8. I don't get the dolphin thing. Is it worse than factory farming..?

  9. This is utter nonsense. These "climate wizards have been predicting another "ice age" or claiming "the planet is going to burn up" for over 100 years. I'll start in 1967 because going back 100 years is way too much to cover. In 1967 scientists predicted a major famine by 1975. Never happened. Not even a slight food shortage. In 1969 they said "everybody will disappear in a cloud of blue steam within 20 years." Obviously that didn't happen. In 1970 they said there would be “water rationing by 1974 and food rationing by 1980.” Never happened. That same year they predicted "a new ice age by the 21st century." This was 11 years after they had said we were going to burn up "in a cloud of blue steam.” In 1971 they doubled down on the "new ice age" prediction. In 1974 they claimed "space satellites show new ice age coming fast." Still hasn't happened. In 1988 they changed their minds about the “new ice age” and claimed the heat was going to kill us. They predicted that “sea levels were going to rise from melting ice” and that “rising sea levels were going to swallow up many small islands within 20 to 30 years.” We haven't even come close to losing a single island ANYWHERE. They doubled down on that prediction in 1989 saying "Rising seas could obliterate nations by 2000." Never happened. There are hundreds of these "the world is going to end" predictions. Research it.

    By the way, the "new green deal" is BS too. For example electric vehicles take 40 to 50 hours to fully charge. They need a minimum 3 to 4 hours to go even a short distance. Imagine everyone driving an electric vehicle and trying to use charging stations? Instead of a few gas pumps there will need to be hundreds of these charging stations in place of one gas station. No more 5 minute gas fill ups. That ought to be real fun especially if you are in a hurry. You'd better reserve a hotel and make restaurant reservations while your car charges, which will cost you another $150 dollars or more. Those who own electric vehicles with gasoline backup systems won’t be so inconvenienced but there are still major problems to consider. One of those problems is that the country already has major problems with our current power grid. Every summer cities call on people NOT to use their air conditioners 24/7. Many electric companies already shut down your AC during peak periods. So how do they propose to be able to charge hundreds of thousands, if not millions of electric vehicles? To deliver the electricity needed for these vehicles the government will confiscate, that means STEAL, thousands upon thousands of acres of land to build more power plants and more wind turbine and solar farms. Won't that make a beautiful scenic drive? Most of this land will be farm land as it is mostly level and already cleared of trees and stumps etc. This means families losing their property and their livelihoods. It also means less food grown to feed us! They will also have to increase coal and gas usage to backup the "clean energy" farms. The very fuels they say they want to get rid of. Remember what happened in Texas last winter when their "clean energy” grid froze up leaving people without power for days? That outage killed 69 people and caused 18 billion dollars in damages. They were very proud of that “green power” until then. Then you have the MASSIVE waste problem of wind turbines going bad, solar panels going bad and the cars battery systems going bad. These cars use 8 to 12 batteries that only last 6 to 10 years depending on usage, charging habits and extreme heat or extreme cold climates. Since the battery system is the most expensive part of the electric vehicle it will be like an appliance, cheaper to buy than to repair which means even more waste to manage and we will be forced into buying a new government mandated vehicle every 6 to 10 years. No more driving a good old gas vehicle for 20 plus years. Save your money folks because there is nothing cheap or green about the “new green deal”, err NIGHTMARE! And this is only the “electric vehicle” part of the bill, err NIGHTMARE!

  10. Whe can not be frozen! We need to do something in our control . Like be zero waste , carbon zero, like transform our way of work in a company, newspaper, church, court, scholl parlment….
    At least that you will fill that you done your parte. For sure other person' s will change whit your example. YOU NEED TO BELIEVE AND JOIN TO THE OTHERS THAT BELIEVE.

  11. What to do is….do a small amount of research and realise that climate change doesn’t exist and it’s only weather cycles that have been happening since time began

  12. The timing is IMPECCABLE. I am terrified about what's going on now that the IPCC has given a Code red for humanity alert, and now my life feels like it's practically useless. I hope they can help us find out more about possible alternatives and such.

  13. Russia will be superpower again .
    Siberia melting snow will uncover the fortunes the earth is hiding.

  14. I have been rejoicing ever since I got rid of my Diabetes disease with the herbs supplement I ordered from Dr. IGUDIA on YouTube. God almighty continue to bless you sir

  15. I am forever grateful to Dr IGUDIA on YouTube who cured me from Diabetes disease with his herbal medication, you are so real and trusted.

  16. I love her sincere feeling, but deep ice cores which scientists have examined show that the world's climate has been warmer at various times in the distant past, and that humans are influencing things only slightly. Climate change is being pushed as a pretext for increased central control. After covid dies down, elites will have climate change, or whatever else, to draw upon. Climate disaster as portrayed by Greta Thurnberg has been highly exaggerated, just like covid.

  17. Climate has been a catalyst not a constant

  18. The most important topic I loved it

  19. What feels even more draining is the fact that when you do your part In trying to limit the damage, but still the climate crisis looks inevitable with each passing day. Especially when you see weird weather patterns in your hometown you never did as a child.

  20. The truth is we are all delusional in one way or the other. We as human beings are like parasitic organisms to the Earth. Its true that the Earth needs to recover from the disasters that we've caused. But we can not exaggerate the situation to those who will listen or those listening will dismiss it. Even I know that the conditions that are happening are getting out of control but you have people who talk about it and do nothing or people who talk about it for political reasons or to take advantage of a situation. One person can't make a change like this alone and I am not an environmentalist.

  21. YES, Clover! LOVE THIS!!!

  22. check it out before you get all weepie and such record snow later then at any time in astralia 2021 this is hog wash

  23. What to do ? Nothing ! You just need to calm down, think and understand that no climate change due to human actions is happening. It's a lie !

  24. There's no way out. And there never was.

    I mean its fine to try to slow it down but make sure your ready for extreme change.

  25. Ban virgin plastic, Ban Fuels, no More Burning Fire, let's Be sustainability consumers, like plant using sun energy, We Are The Target Market

  26. She is a smart talker

  27. reminder that the actual single greatest thing a person can do in the fight against climate change is to adopt a vegan or plant-based diet (according to the UN) and to advocate for the abolition of animal agriculture.

  28. it's really true.Clover hogan is such a nice expert that i have ever seen.Not only that,she also has an altitude for telling us advice and speaks really fluently,lowly to make the stupid boy like me can understand.She also beautiful and has a nice eyes.I wish i could meet and shake her hand

  29. Several years ago, people said that climate change is aun unreal phenomenon. Now they said it is a normal phenomenon that have been happening millions of years and people could not do anything to change it.

  30. Please do check out our changing climate on YT they have tons of content and they do provide tips on what can be done on an individual level.
