THEORY: Come on, guys. We’ve all got access to YouTube, we all know, deep down, that climate change is a myth. Any scientific evidence suggesting otherwise is clearly part of an elaborate conspiracy theory where scientists fabricate studies in order to, uhm, get increased funding to fabricate more. Ask David Icke or Alex Jones or that guy in the club smoking area who likes his ketamine a bit too much.

Climate change will eventually make the world uninhabitable or just totally unbearable for everyone.

Our climate is changing and it is making our weather more extreme, but it is just part of a natural cycle of the Earth. Anyone claiming that the process is influenced by humans is probably part of the cover up.

The Poles aren’t melting; there’s no risk of huge waves flooding major cities around the world. The Poles are actually GROWING — see how these wacko scientists have corrupted us?

All sea levels are rapidly rising and, perhaps even more worryingly, people are starting to suggest that Noah and his ark doesn’t even exist. We are on the brink of a new Ice Age; The Day After Tomorrow is going to happen IRL. Cities like New York, Miami and Boston will soon be totally underwater.
