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.

    The background noise, Some may think of as music is distracting to my old ears. Young people can distinguish between sound and words. Lots of 70+ year olds can't. More and more I'm watching less and less because even documentaries are being edited by our youth who for some reason need background noise in their conversation. I also live alone in the woods. I also love it. I'm a self made Shaman. Most people who live alone come to know themselves and the universe on a level not bonded to outside noises. We much prefer the gentle voices we are able to better hear in total silence. Sadly I stopped the Video before finishing. I did notice he's probably left hand Dominant like me. Normally left-hand people are gifted. Bless this brother.

    I agree with Billy. If we truly only have ten years to reverse climate change then I would say we're too late. Not a chance to fix it that fast.

    That's what I call ambition. The Hilton was behind the trees where he showered and slept. He had a helicopter bring all his materials and his relatives cut all the wood. 😂

    Do not adjust to climate change do something about it, by researching the animal agriculture that is responsible for over 50% of greenhouse gases way more than the whole Transportation section in the world we humans just need to change to a plant-based lifestyle and then include more compassion and only then we are able to allow the planet to start reversing the process, and the consciousness off all Humanity must be less violent and then the planet will respond the same way we are experiencing our manifestation of the past decades simple but only one must open their eyes and stop being ignorant and start looking around in order to recognize the truth.

    like all problems, you have to stop causing the problem for the problem to go away- climate change is more than reversible once we stop causing climate to change. Adapting to deadly behavior just leaves you dead.

    Sorry, if the World Bank is involved there's an evil agenda and it's probably all lies.

    You don't reverse it.
    You let nature take it's natural course.
    When you have a virus your body gets hotter.
    Some will not make especially if they have a virus mentality.
    Change Yourself change the World.
    It is that simple
    Find your own way by looking inward.
    Not religiously. Just in all look inward. Every way that your personality fits.
    Find your own truth

    It is somehow interesting that especially Americans do not believe in global warming. They spend a lot of energy and have the biggest cars. They have this cowboy mentality and do not have to be thoughtful about their behaviour it seems.
