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).

We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.

He Spent 40 Years Alone in the Woods, and Now Scientists Love Him | Short Film Showcase
It's one guy's statement, in one small patch of the world. But assuming his data is accurate and meaningful, what does this suggest as a cause? Seems we too easily assume a substantial amount of climate warming is owed to C02 emissions, and so little to methane, to solar activity, to our movement away from the ice age we find ourselves in, to global engineering (aka chemtrails), et cetera and et cetera.
Sometimes I want to live like this for the rest of my life. But I also want to be part of society, have a family have a "normal" life. I don't know what I want and how ill actually be happier. Age 19. Anyone else feel like this?
As human beings we are herd animals. This lifestyle appears attractive but it is unlikely many of us could pull it off. Emotionally I mean. The majority of us are not wired like that. That’s why there are not many “Billies”.
Well, I was going to say that kind of life must pay pretty good, but I see a couple of commenters were thinking along the same line.
He must be independently wealthy or has a government grant. Richard proenneke was out in the wilderness like that for 30 years and didn't have all that kind of stuff. And he had contact with people.🤔😏
The very first Colorado trust-fund baby discovered! His significance, beyond this polished NatGeo narrative, is accurately exemplified in the way he spells his name: lowercase letters. His obnoxiously novel, narrow life, seemingly adventurous, is actually that of hiding from growth and expansion via braving the world of human interaction, contributing to society, and journeying personal vulnerability. Fellow introverts, anti-social hiding is not the point of life and is not to be celebrated, no matter how novel it seems. Strive to be more. Your depths of thinking are nowhere in this video. You have so much more to offer the world (beyond hiding behind snow).
Why was there an ice age when humans had no impact....
Cars make C02. Trees take it and make O2. The more CO2 you produce the more O2 the trees make.
Ita not us and you cant reverse it. The earth changes to make us adapt and learn.
We are never set on one trens for ever. Things shift and the world is doing what she does.
