Bummer: Guy Living In A Jar For ‘Climate Change’ Gives Up

Remember Kurtis Baute, who was going to Make A Point by living in a jar? Well, it didn’t go so well, and, as Eric Worrell points out, this exposed the need for inexpensive, reliable energy

Why this B.C. man sealed himself in an airtight plastic cube for 14 hours

YouTuber Kurtis Baute says he wanted to teach people the ‘base science concepts surrounding climate change’

Spending 14 hours inside an airtight plastic cube with rapidly rising carbon dioxide levels left Kurtis Baute feeling a little loopy.

“It feels physically like the air is a little bit thicker, and that’s partly because it is more massive and also because it’s building up inside your body,” the B.C. scientist and YouTuber told As It Happens guest host Megan Williams.

“And it also slows your mind down. So I felt a little bit out of it and it was kind of harder to focus and harder to do higher-order decision making. It was kind of wild to feel that happen.”

He live-tweeted the experience under the hashtag #KurtisInAJar.

He originally planned to stay in the cube for three days, banking on his plants to absorb most of the CO2 and keep him safe.

But cloudy weather meant the plants couldn’t do their job, and he had to emerge early.

Well, if he had some reliable, fossil fuled/nuclear powered energy for grow lights, things would have been fine. Instead, he tried to live like it’s 1499 to prove something or other, and it didn’t work. And, get this, while the CO2 concentrations would have been caused by mankind, they would have been from him breathing out, not from fossil fuels, hair dryers, vampire energy, etc.

    One wonders why someone didn’t say to him, “Hey Kurtis, boobie, I don’t think you’ve really thought this one out kid.”

    Actually puppy, they probably did. But these people don’t think. They think their ideas are the height of mental abilities and zeitgeist.

    Sadly, this will make him more anti-c02 as to him, it proved how evil and deadly co2 is…. without realizing how high the c02 in that bubble actually was.

  3. Professor hale says:

    He originally billed this as a science experiment. But he made no effort to measure and track actual CO2, temperature and humidity levels nor did he perform any basic calculations about the ability of certain plants to absorb Co2. I have seen high school science fairs with more scientific rigor.
