Really ?!

They say ... and they say coal power plants should not be financed any longer.  And what does the world bank do:  It holds on to its intention to finance one of the most controversial coal power plants on the planet. Take bold action!  First tell the world bank to live up to its own words!!

+Live Vegan Their 'predictions' over the last 20 odd years have all been WRONG. There has been no global warming for around 17 years, depending on which dataset you use. The halt in global warming in each major temperature dataset is as follows: For GISS, the slope is flat since July 2001 or 12 years, 6 months. For Hadcrut3, the slope is flat since July 1997 or 16 years, 6 months. For Hadcrut4, the slope is flat since December 2000 or 13 years, 1 month. For Hadsst3, the slope is flat since December 2000 or 13 years, 1 month. For UAH, the slope is flat since October 2004 or 9 years, 3 months. (goes to December using version 5.5) For RSS, the slope is flat since September 1996 or 17 years, 4 months. The science is clear! There has been NO global warming for around 15-17 years. The World Bank are part of the global warming scam. They want to create a 'problem' so they can introduce a carbon tax.

Gross underestimation. 6 degrees by 2030 is predicted.

actually 2 degrees is predicted

Andrew Davies - check the news! Say what you like about the WB but this is actually pretty major. http://theconversation.com/world-bank-kicks-coal-but-will-the-rest-of-the-world-follow-16392

An ad hominem fallacy and quite a misunderstanding of what hypocrisy is. While the WB's policies are indeed harmful, there's nothing hypocritical about this video.
jqbtube (5 years ago)
Banks, insurance companies, scientists all accept the reality of human caused global warming. Those who don't are ignorant dolts.

Ignorant dolt.

Check out Freeman Dyson's short talk on climate change and top soil. It's highly relevant! Especially, if you think this is fear mongering, a great conspiracy or whatever. Use the whole of your brain, not just your paranoia to think.

Jesus Christ! Idiots... idiots everywhere, problem mentioned in this small video is bullshit. I cant believe there are people who think its true... But anyway give away your money for fighting with global warming, for fighting with a problem that that does not exist.

Great Video....Sir could you please tell which Ad agency has done this marvelous piece of artistic genius?.Thanks in advance.

I think that 4 degrees is a very conservative estimate. And nobody seems to be doing anything. Governments,Organizations,and the ordinary person in the street. There seems to be more and more cars personal consumption is on the increase bigger houses and so on .But what will happen when the Chinese and the Indians start to live like the Americans and the Europeans? We can only wait and see.

The World Bank is directly responsible for everything that happens on the planet. The World Bank is directly responsible, for the train wreck that is the human race. Google: "The Money Masters". The Federal Reserve gave birth to the IMF ( International Monetary Fund ) and the World Bank. I have no doubt that during the next inevitable famine, right around the time that people start eating one another, the 1% will be the first against the wall.

Great video. Worldbank - Are you able to state where the figure for subsidies come from, and a breakdown of what countries they given by?
Annie Leymarie (5 years ago)
I agree with Shane Hugues (see his Ted Talk) and others - this is pretty hypocritical from an organisation that has played and continues to play such a major role in bringing in this situation. Your clip shows that falling economies will be a terrible consequence of climate change, but it's the relentless pursuit of growth on a finite planet, with debt-based financial systems, that has such devastating effects. The WB advises to cut trillions in harmful subsidies: please walk your talk!
shane hughes (5 years ago)
World bank if you want to help negate climate change please create a debt jubilee or restructuring. Your role in creating money in the form of debt has helped create an economic growth addiction, on a finite planet, where we're now running into environmental limits like the limit to atmospheric carbon. The vast majority of money is created as debt (e.g. 97% in the UK) so we have to keep growing to pay back earlier growth. We're now hooked in a viscous growth cycle. HELP HELP i want to get off!

The world Bank is nothing more than a Illuminati ran organization that's sole purpose is to put countries in debt and rule populations don't let all this propaganda fool you. They're not good guys at all.. I recommend that you go to Amazon and read "How to overcome fear, and start living fearless" These guys rule by fear tactics...

World bank could please urge world leaders to take more action on climate change? im 17 years old and have met hundreds of people who deny climate change even exists. please, the general population is un-aware on our pollution output, if we became more aware change would happen faster. i am all in favor of renewable energy and would someday like to work on Wind Turbines... please, for my future, do what you can to prevent climate change. my future depends on a healthy planet.

There is no doubt that the poor will suffer the most from global warming. But we owe it to all future generations to turn down the heat NOW ... "We have learned that we do not inherit the earth from our parents, we borrow it from our children" ... Jean Michel Cousteau
World Bank (5 years ago)
We also are financing low-carbon urban growth to help cities aggressively reduce emissions and working on ending fossil fuel subsidies. We finance coal power projects only when nothing else is feasible and the need for power to heat homes and support the livelihood of the poor is great.
World Bank (5 years ago)
Thank you for your comments. The World Bank is predominately helping countries shift to greater use of renewable energy – 84% of the power generation projects we approved in 2012 were in renewable energy. We're working with countries on geothermal, solar, and wind power projects.
Jay Toups (5 years ago)
World needs a carbon-bridging pollution solution. What is that? A clean energy/environmental opportunity so big, powerful and positive that it's like looking at the Sun. Which is why everyone learning about Bioroot Energy and higher mixed alcohol fuel squints, at least at first. Please read the note on our FB page, "Higher Mixed Alcohol Fuel: What on Earth is it?" thanks. facebookDOTcom/biorootenergy biorootenergyDOTcom Brief vid: youtubeDOTcom/watch?v=jRl9RRpPadA

Great video. Now set an example by stopping fossil fuel funding.

If World Bank is committed to solve climate issue, then stop funding fossil fuel industry. Irony.

Stop funding coal World Bank!
350duncan (5 years ago)
Seems obvious that if the World Bank believes this they would stop funding coal, yah?
Lankus (5 years ago)
The time is now, WB..
Andrew Davies (5 years ago)
So why does the World Bank keep funding coal plants when burning coal is a primary source of climate change (not to mention other pollution)? Seems to me the World Bank should put its money where its mouth is.
Stephen Leahy (5 years ago)
Good video - I take it the WB endorses all the messages in it and will act accordingly
Chris Lang (5 years ago)
Time for the World Bank to stop funding coal-fired power plants, then.

Could you please put spanish subtitles, I would like to share on my website.. Thank you.

thank you... now- could some of that multi-lateral funding get spent on immediate ozone repair and radiation remediation's technologies?.. Perhaps, I missed something?.. we all know if we don't get a hold of the most impeding GLOBAL environmental issues NOW- like nothing else matters... nothing else will, and we won't be able to continue to live here... how can I make a positive difference in my world, and in our World?.. Thank you for this commercial... please google glycan group industries =)
