This genius Nobel Prize winning physicist says runaway climate change is the biggest threat to our planet, that the planet is hurtling toward total inhabitability by our collective consumption of fossil fuels.

There are so many geophysical positive feedback loops going on right now making the problem worse. Ever hear of burning permafrost in the Arctic? If you care about your children’s future, commit to never again buying another internal combustion engine vehicle. This means that you need to make your current ICE vehicles last until you can replace them with battery electric rides.
