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

  • Yayınlanma Tarihi:  1 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.

    Climate change is b.s. It's just a way to control world population (by limiting/suppressing it) and to create a one world order of Communism in the West! Poor 80 year-old gentleman with his 40 year-old illusions being used for ideology by National Geographic! Odd: "Unibomber" lived in the wilderness too!

    So when he moved into the wilderness for no reason save to keep meticulous weather data; scientists were raving about global cooling. He emerges with 40 years of data for his sliver of the globe to suggest it's warmer there. Wasted life par excellance.

    i like it. would do the same.
    so therr must be an initial big amount of money to be to the house and all.
    and also income for his supplys he get in town.

    if the society just teached todays only suffer, pain and war - its the best idea to just get away from society. I still play with the idea till i finish the thought of income, costs and food etc..

    Being alone for 5 days is an adjustment. Being alone for 30 days is solitary. Being alone longer becomes excuciating. It takes a gift. I can’t do it. Great research though. The cycles of smow and melt are much broader than his research and apparent conclusions indicate. Millenia wide to collect the actual picture.
