Climate change. That’s a thing. They used to call it ‘global warming’, but it didn’t convey the cataclysmic fuckery we’re unleashing. They’ve actually stopped saying ‘climate change’ now, and instead, use ‘extinction event’.

AND IF THE PEOPLE COMPLAINING THINK THEY’RE INCONVENIENCED NOW, JUST WAIT UNTIL THEIR HOUSES ARE SUBMERGED IN FUCKING SEA WATER!
