It's just a shame we couldn't come to a bipartisan agreement to address the crisis and therefore can't do anything about this.

Nah, I'm sure it'll be fine... year after year of record high temperatures, the glaciers are melting...

Soon we'll be wondering where the East and West coasts have gone...  They were just there last year!

The planet? No. Itll be fine.
Itll be different but fine.

We, however, are dead. Which is also fine.
In 400 years youll never even know we existed.

Sure they can. Make human-robots hybrids powered by solar energy.

We won't do anything about it because we cannot possibly be bothered and CHINA and further.

So, yeah.

We've been "DOOMED!" since at least the early 70's. Some people just love hysterics.

Yeah, because a 4-billion year old planet that has experienced thousands of cycles of earthquakes, droughts, floods, ice ages, volcanos, asteroid impacts, sun flares, tectonic plate shifts, glaciers, magnetic reversal of the poles, forest fires, and cosmic rays is simply going to fall apart because of the humans that have lived on the surface and have been using fossil fuels and plastics for 0.00005% of its life span.

I can't even imagine having young kids and trying to plan around this?

Do you teach them accounting? Or survival skills and combat?

Maybe a solid trade that can be practiced wherever you may go like carpentry, medicine, beer making etc.?

When the SHTF will my 401K simply vanish?
Will paper money become more valuable in small bills as toilet paper?

How many zombies will there be and how hard will they be to kill?
I hope they're not the smart & fast kind. Those are the worst.


I need answers!

Humanity has two choices : deal with the climate change deniers/scumbags ruining it all in a very very aggressive way or let humanity die.

What this world needs is a good dictatorship willing to send tens of millions of assholes six feet under for the good of humanity.

99.9% of all living species that existed during that time are extinct

Humans won't go extinct- we're very adaptable, although life is going to get real uncomfortable for many.  For those people, they're going to try and move to places that are more comfortable, so I hope you're ready for a *lot* of immigration in the next 100 years.

Billions of humans will die, but not every single one.  The survivors will evolve into a new species better adapted to life on the new world.

Think about it, the entire planet isn't going to melt into a fireball.  Sure it might be 99% uninhabitable, but you can bet there will be some crafty humans living in that 1%.  We already have extremeophile humans living in deserts, so imagine of few of them just keep moving North as the weaker humans die off and end up living in Norway instead of the Sahara.  That's how evolution works, the edge cases hang on in the good times and thrive when the system changes to favor them.

They absolutely can, have, and do. It's why we inhabit everywhere like the parasites we are.

This is what I've seen coming for years and years now. Thankfully it'll be a nice slow painful elimination of life as we currently enjoy it. Many will die, more will suffer, and few will look down upon us peasants as we gnaw for scraps off the bones of our fallen friends.

Maybe I'll see it in my lifetime, maybe ill be dead tomorrow. Either way it's coming and nothing's going to stop it at this point outside of a infinity gauntlet situation blasting away half of human life on earth in an instant.

Yep. They've made hundreds - if not thousands - of dire hysterical predictions of end-times environmental collapse, and none of them have come true.

Safe to ignore this latest ridiculous prediction as well.

This is true of all forms of life. Congratulations for making a tautological statement.

We have 1 particular, peculiar superpower however; we can propagate information across generational boundaries. Otherwise, yeah, we're not any different from any other form of life, aside from the information snowball we've built over the last 10,000 years.

The kids are into LOTR... they'd be up for a plan on living in a half-underground hobbit house to beat the heat.
Maybe I should put that bug in their ear now.
Maybe not happy about it, but it would make sense. Plan on being off grid and collecting rainwater. A smart drainage plan around the home where runoff waters the shade trees.
I think these types of small communities would fair well, not having to rely too much on a major population center.

Yes, because when I want to discuss science I go to a libertarian think tank that is the real world version of the guy in the left in that comic.

Oh, yeah? I'm inventing an air conditioning unit that can take ambient atmospheric energy and transfer it directly to cool running air. It's cutting-edge tech and I plan to sell the patent to the government. No batteries, no plug for the unit. Energy comes from the universe. I personally have Nikola Tesla's stolen papers and got this idea from them. All I need now is a collage degree of some kind, some investment money, and a technical plan so I can actually GET the patent. Then we'll see who can "adapt", infidel.
