    It won’t take that long! I’m already wondering!

    • Because you’re a brainwashed ninny.

      Jeffrey Meade you’re the brain dead people Tom is referring to

    • Ashton no one has ever proven your stupid hoax.  The fact that you resort to childish insults is proof you are the brain dead one here.  Consensus is not science.  Computer models can be programmed to say anything.  Meanwhile the earth is doing just fine other than India and China polluting.  Man you people are gullible.

  2. None fossil fuels also means cleaner air, But we don’t want that do we?.

    😶Republicans are bad for the environment and for your health

    • @Southern Fried Cynic : Learn a little history. The US got involved in Vietnam during the Eisenhower administration. Fake news? You wouldn’t know truth if it sat on your face.

    • Irish buck, I guess in the fantasy Trump world you reside, non of my comment would make sense. So an attempted insult from a moronic cult member means nothing. Idiots like you try to say how figures on the left instigate things, yet when some right-wing nut, similar to you, uses Trump’s rhetoric as THE REASON for their actions, its all different. The problem with you and Southern Fried cynic is you love to use a certain kind of logic to bash the non cult members, but don’t want it used against you. So try to make an argument using facts and not as some butt hurt snowflake.

      @Merrilou Neigenfind Yea you voted for a bigoted, racist war criminal who called potential voters deplorable, u absolute virtue-signaling hypocrite. But _please_ keep telling yourself how superior you are… it worked out _so well_ for us in 2016! 😂🤣😭

    And so, with great determination, you elected a person, so idiotic that there was no way he could have understood the seriousness of the situation, namely, the one and only, Donald J. Trump!

    • @LunarJane Global WarmingIs Real We don’t get paid, we’re trying to stop your incessant insanity. Wanker

    • @MeanGeneSanDiego Lord, I can’t stand the King James Version! It prevents people like you from understanding what the scriptures really mean. Try reading The Message, by Eugene Peterson.

      @Shawn Corbin “People like me?” Sorry, Pal you don’t know me. While working as a printer/proofreader I spent YEARS comparing 5 different versions, I simply cut and pasted that one because it came up. I personally prefer the “New Living” version. But I compare important passages with a Greek/English version. Don’t be so quick to quack, buddy!🤨

    • Please think with some logic religion is fine but Christian teaching is not the only religion in this world . For some godknows reason the 4th world united totalitarian States of America think they can see the future by quoting scripture written over 2thousand years ago get real people We as a Species’ have evolved over that time to be masters of our destiny. And to ignore your own science community is folly in the extreme NASA told your Government 40 years ago we had the Advantage then maybe it’s too late but this constant I’m right your wrong BOLLOX has got to stop.

    • @Johnny Johnstone Ecclesiastes 10:
      5 There is an evil I have seen under the sun,
      the sort of error that arises from a ruler:
      6 Fools are put in many high positions…

  6. Because Republicans know they’ll be dead in 100 years.

    • Most of them will die from old age or natural selection in 10 years. But our planet doesn’t have that long.

    • Or maybe even sooner if they continue to follow everything about Trumski just like Pavlov`s dog (which is exactly what Trumski is, a very sick one).

      I think some of them already are. Weekend at Bernie style. Someone just props them up everyday.

  7. My wife and I don’t have kids. Good Luck.

  8. The world acted on Chlorofluorocarbons in the 1990s. Now Big Money buys fake science and sells out future generations.

    Impeach and incarcerate the dotard NOW

    • countdebleauchamp | September 20, 2019 at 3:36 PM | Reply

      He isn’t going to be convicted in the Senate. If she thought he would be convicted in the Senate, she would have initiated impeachment.

    • The most corrupt Republican group in history stealing public money daily and the only people trying to stop this you call corrupt … WTF is wrong with u????

    • Please do. It will guarantee he wins even easier in 2020. I dare them to lol.

  10. What, we don’t need 100 years! Stop Trump now!

    What makes you think that humans will still be around 100 years from now?

    • @michaelthemovieman ah so the polar ice caps melting at an alarming rate? Which causes the oceans to rise? Which causes places that are below sea level (like Miami) to slowly but surely be swallowed up by the ocean? Scientists and reporters have been talking about that for YEARS because it’s been happening a little bit at a time.
      And this summer was only the hottest summer in Europe EVER recorded. About ten years ago scientists predicted what the temperatures would be around this year if climate change continued to worsen…Their guesses were still lower than the actual temperatures that hit and killed many people, plants, and animals.
      Now plant and animal life are severely affected by climate change. It takes animals hundreds if not thousands of years when adapting to their new environment (example the different subspecies of Galapagos turtles & how their shells around the head and neck have formed). But animals don’t get that time to adapt and evolve naturally when the planet is changing this fast. There is a very delicate food chain/ecosystem on this planet. When a species of plants or animals can’t survive & goes extinct it causes a domino effect. (Ex: palm oil being in everything and how severely over harvesting the plant is killing it’s ecosystem) (also the amazon rainforest).
      Garbage Island isn’t going away. The plastic is only breaking down into smaller and smaller pieces. Sea creatures eventually eat it and we eat them. Where I live, because of all the oil rigs CONSTANTLY screwing up and causing oil spills there are serious warnings about eating certain sea life. Shrimp had black all in their bodies from the oil. It is gross and horrifying!

      It’s not fear mongering, it’s the truth. It only causes fear because this doesn’t have a happy ending for humans.

      @Cory Tolbin That’s how Robert Bowers and Connor Betts talked before they caused their deadly shootings.

    • @michaelthemovieman truth hurts.

      @Cory Tolbin And you’re proving it hurts by your denial of the truth, future mass shooter.

  12. Thinking we will be here in a hundred years to look back is part of the problem.

    100 years!!?!? Bruh, those of us with a fully functional brain are doing it right now

  14. “In 100 Years We’ll Look Back, Wonder How We Were So ‘Braindead’ To Not Act Faster”

    Sooooo true !! 🙁

  15. At this rate, we…all of us…won’t be here to wonder about that.

  16. 100 years aren’t necessary. This country was brainless in 2016.

  17. 100 years from now, animals that have adapted to extreme heat will be feasting on whatever is left of humanity remains.

    If we don’t do something now, we wont be here in 100 years

  19. Tom, only brain dead people would take a hundred years to realise what happened. I think the majority of American knows what hit us.

  20. The world will survive fine, it is the people who won’t.
