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).

I guess Donald Trump would call Billy a liar and a loser. He insists Global Warming is a hoax, a Chinese conspiracy, and could "all just go away on its own".

It’s getting warmer. Millennial weather cycles are a part of the planet. You can’t tell me the Earth’s ecosystem is so fragile that one hundred fifty years of gradual industrialization has turned it on its head. I don’t buy it. Disclaimer: I do not believe that the Earth is flat, or that Elon Musk is an alien. I do believe that the United States of America landed men on the moon, and that Al Gore is an opportunist. Oh, and I’m not a Republican. Or a Democrat. Or a socialist.

This is the most inspiring thing I've seen so far. Learn to adapt and not complain. Global warming and COVID are here to stay. All we can do is adapt.

If we all go vegan and base our food supplies on regenerative agroforestry we have won another 250 years to switch to renewable energy and better transportation systems... if we do all same time we can sustain humanity for long long time

Why the story was not written so we can feel nature and been able to make our own conclusion. On the other hand, it would have been better to hear his voice from time to time but no more.
