This one is starting to trend on reddit:

And there are the usual cheerleading comments about how the Earth is doomed.

Let’s hear the wisdom of George Carlin on the subject

Let’s say the worst predictions of climate change come to pass. Rising sea levels, storms, crop failures, etc.

The Earth, as a planet, is going to be fine. Humans might have some troubles, but the planet and its biosphere will adapt and continue on just fine.

It’s been hotter in the past. It’s been colder in the past. Life… finds a way.

So if you want to talk about the impacts of climate change on people, fine. But don’t project your problems as if the existence of the planet is in jeopardy. It’s merely your place that is of concern.

Have some perspective.
