""Species extinction, more widespread disease, unlivable heat, ecosystem collapse, cities menaced by rising seas -- these and other devastating climate impacts are accelerating and bound to become painfully obvious before a child born today turns 30.""

Mother Earth can only take so much abuse before it gives up.

Thank you to the Koch Brothers, Rupert Murdoch and human greed in general for making this possible...

The end was supposed to come a long time ago. 10,000 years from now- “end of the world is closer than originally thought.”

Mother Earth can only take so much abuse before it gives up.

The Earth, with a rocky crust and a molten core, doesn’t care about what humans do. The planet has been a frozen wasteland on multiple occasions and has been much hotter during its existence.

But nonetheless, some believe that based on a UN report, there is only nine years left now before the end of the world. No one should be gullible enough to believe this tripe but people go out in public and spout this nonsense to frighten others into submitting to their politics.

Crushing climate impacts to hit sooner than feared: draft U.N. report

...and here is Prof. Steve Konin (climate advisor of the Obama administration):

"Leaders talk about existential threat, climate emergency, disaster, crisis, but in fact when you actually read the literature, there is no support for that kind of hysteria. The science is insufficient to make useful projections about how the climate will change in coming decades. Much less what effect human beings will have on it."

Yep. But the politicians do need their existential threats, dont they.
