    This was mentioned in the Venom movie. They said like 1 generation away from catastrophe or something.

    Unlucky for the next generations. It's obvious that the main offenders are not that interested in stopping climate change enough. By the time the damage is done and resources are dwindling I'll luckily be in a box 6ft under.

    If accurate, it's too late.

    Coal plants are still being built.

    Even the best projections don't see carbon neutrality until 2050.

    Only atmospheric remediation will pull down CO2 levels.

    Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow, we die!

    Meh, in Hong Kong we've now had two super typhoons in two years. Might be turning into an annual event.

    While climate change is certainly real, I can't help but laugh at extreme statements like this.

    Its science. They do stuff/prediction based on data, if you feel you can do better you are free to challenge their conclusion with your own experiment/ computer prediction.

    That's the beauty of science, you can test it and someone will want to prove you are wrong and make better test

    What makes me skeptical is that doomsday predictions like this have been done for a long time now. It isn't new.

    Either way, the Sun will eventually become a Red Giant and burn us to death.

    so damn frustrating

    our offspring/future generations are going to live in a nightmarish hellhole because of previous and current generations disregarding scientific findings and so forth whatever dumbass reason. we have no fucking excuse. utterly despise anyone that doesn't support drastic efforts to fight back in the best manner possible.

    See, this I can agree with. If we can avoid damaging the enviroment, there is no reason why we shouldn't.

    Some people suggest socialist policies of wealth redistribution as a solution. I can see those having an interest in the doomsaying.

    These kind of news completely throw me out the loop.

    On the one hand my narcisstic side says: Ah fuck it and randomly scream "HaHa" pointing fingers to whatever future generation like Nelson because i will long since gone when shit really hits the fan.

    On the other hand I am a sucker for Immortality and would literally kill to gain the chance to exend my life artificially under certain criteria.

    Unfortunately this would also include me havng to deal with all the bad changes - meaning I kind of point my own finger at myself and scream "HaHa" at myself...

    Damn.

    That's good if many skeptical and make their own experiment we can confirm this conclusion sooner (asuming this is true) or have better prediction (asuming this is wrong)

    But if we just being skeptics without any follow up (trying to proof) we will not get anything by disbelieving it.

    It's like i refuse to believe as hard as i can that the sun is made of hidrogen and fusing into helium. What hard proof they have anyway since noone hand been there and take a sample

    Btw why some people act that there is only one single dude doing science and trying to say
    "Extending the doomsday clock yet again I see "

    This stupid comment only valid if there is only one single dude doing science

    Probably, but even if the problem has been maximized, it is still a real. The increase in the frequency of natural disasters proves that.
