This I believe

I believe that global warming is going to become a problem a lot sooner than everyone thinks. My guess is that in about 15-20 years there is going to be a big break in the icebergs, and it is going to melt away in the oceans. About half of the world not covered in water will be covered in water, so that means that about half of the population is going to die as well, along with everything we have already created

Everyone is saying how there is nothing to worry about, that global warming it is not going to be happening during our life span. Well, why couldn’t it? And why wouldn’t it? The main reason everyone is not making a big deal is because we are all brain washed to believe that there is going to be global warming in like around million years when really it is going to be within a couple decades or so. But in a way I know why they’re telling us that, because if they were to tell us that there was going to be global warming now, every one would flip out and then that would cause a panic, which could be close to as bad as the global warming to our earth.

When the global warming does actually come, I believe that it is also going to be a lot bigger that we actually think. I think it is going to take out the whole earth when it comes. It is going to end the world and then in another 100,000 years it’s is going to start all over by having an ice age. Then we will all be alive again, but we just wont know it. That is what has been happening to us the whole time and we just did not know it.

Well, now you know my theory on how our earth is going to come to a halt, all of a sudden. We’re all just going to catch on fire because as the sun gets to close, it will kill everything living, and that’s the process of life, or that’s what I believe.
