He Spent 40 Years Alone in the Woods, and Now Scientists Love Him | Short Film Showcase

  • Yayınlanma Tarihi:  2 yıl önce
  • Welcome to Gothic, Colorado—one of the coldest places in the United States. This ghost town has been abandoned since the 1920s, but there is at least one person who still calls it home. For more than 40 years, current resident billy barr has lived in a small cabin, recording data about the snowpack to pass the time. In this short film, Morgan Heim of Day’s Edge Productions profiles the legendary local who inadvertently provided scientists with a treasure trove of climate change data. Winner of the Film4Climate competition organized by the Connect4Climate Program of the World Bank (film4climate.net). ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe ➡ Get More Short Film Showcase: http://bit.ly/ShortFilmShowcase About Short Film Showcase: The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors.

    thing is we should adept to climate change but we should also try to prevent it from getting worse.


    i mean lets say people randomly starts shooting everyone in the head you can say the same, learn to deal with it and where they are and dont be there... adept and survive?
    i understand its important to know you can still survive and make sure you can survive but not everyone can do it like he did there.

    Climate change appears to be a real phenomena & has happened time & again thru the aeons.
    The problem is that leftist Dems want to politicize climate change as a way to control every individual, telling each person what they think or not think & should or should not do with their own lives, money, homes, modes of transport, etc. .... They think they know better than we how we should conduct our own affairs.

    Whereas, conservatives, who know that climate change is real, also know that all individuals are created to be free, and that climate change should not be politicized for their own political ends.

    Being social is extremely over rated and unnecessary in the modern times. Being social served humanity well when they were sharing hunting grounds with wolves, wildcats, bears, and so forth. There was safety in numbers. The herd mentality saved many. But those times ended about 1900. Today, friends and mates are an unnecessary hindrance and liability. What is considered a friend now is nothing but an aquaintence or an enemy in disguise. They will be the first to use, betray, and abandon you after painfully backstabbing you. Humans that still collect in herds are endangering themselves and do not know it. The herd will turn on you sooner than later. I have not had friends since 2000, nor a girlfirend. I found out the hard way of the horrible dangers of belonging to a herd. I was painfully used, betrayed and abandoned. But I exchanged that for mild loneliness by no longer having anybody in my life. It is a good exchange. I will never have to suffer of the downfalls of being social again.

    I'm afraid that one of the drawbacks of the media is that you get half-truths, or somebody else's truth. Whatever they want you to think, or whatever they think you want to think, or both.
