A whole lot of people are going to die in ways that are less than pleasant, and humanity as a whole will experience a level of social dislocation that will make the Dark Ages look like a trip to Knott's Berry Farm.
Is that your theory or is this just one of floundies indisputable facts again.
You asked what we thought; that's what I think.
Given the data on increasing desertification of cropland, loss of rain forest, collapse of aquaculture and rising sea levels, it seems more like a reasonable conclusion than 'hype.' Of course, one person's 'reasonable conclusion' is another person's 'hype' - which is another way of saying that some people are fatuous morons, and it's typically an analysis of how they came to their conclusions that allows other people to accurately gauge whether or not the person in question is a fatuous moron.
If the cap fits, etc.

I also heard that REO Speedwagon was pretty cool back in the day. I remain unconvinced.

Did someone just say 'fatuous moron?'

Different empire. Same dynamic.

Well, given all the million things you can make with plastic, I think future generations will be thinking (among other things) 'I can't believe those shitheads just burnt this.'

I guess if you didn't call global climate change 'hype' and invoke a bunch of sophistic arguments against the accompanying scientific literature and methodology I'd be more inclined to accept this statement as something other than disingenuous twaddle from a blatantly obvious contrarian who has no intention of adding anything of substance to the conversation.
If being Ned Flanders with a slightly more effective prose style is your idea of an accomplishment - well, as Flava Flav would say, "I can't do nothing for you, man."
