Comments
  1. Everyone ignores the climate change BS if they have half a brain. The weather is changing and we cannot control it, unless the Democrats get into power and decide to tax the sun.

  2. Anything that MSNBC reports is utter BS! There is no climate crises accept the crisis created in their stupid warped minds.

  3. MSNBCannibals hungry for that central American meat since the enforcement of US law is causing their fresh supply of Illegal alien meat to dwindle

  4. While this is very unfortunate for these people, I still fail to see how this is the USA's fault. There are starving people all over the world, this doesn't mean we can take on the world's impoverished.

  5. There will be many new Florida voters from p.r. Thanks to climate change. Republicans own climate change denial will bite them in the butt and I'm glad. Karma. Republicans are too dumb to even realize they've upped our numbers by their own stupidity.

  6. And the polluters are still not owning up to their blame in these disasters.
    Less food = less people.
    The human population is about to drop like flies pretty soon…

  7. Maybe the parents of Greta should have been ‘environmentalsick’ childless? To Climate Kid Greta: “Nana NANA na!” For more than 50 years 🏆 Climate Alarmists in the ‘scientific’ community and environmental movement have not gotten 🥁 even one (1) prediction correct, but they do have a perfect record of getting 41 predictions wrong. 🤪In other words, on at least 41 occasions, these so-called experts have predicted some terrible environmental catastrophe was imminent … and it never happened. ✝️‘The liars who give false witnesses will go to the Lake of Fire?’ ‘For ever?’🙈🥵

  8. in ten years china will make 50% of the earth carbon . 3rd world cuts there tress , over graze the grass lands to sand ..they have to many kids for the land they have .they need to stop cutting down trees . and having do many kids .china has 900 million poor let all them in .well let in 550 million poor in India . ITS ONLY 1.5 BILLION PEOPLE …it is that easy to understand ,

  9. it is not 1550 AD , in 1970 there was 2 billion people ,less then 50 years there are 7 going on 8 billion , that rate of grown is over running the planet . i see no point in speeding up the decline of our bit of the planet for this human flood ,we don't have good drinking water like we did 50 years ago and need a life time to upgrade them , water from Flint anyone ? 70 million don't have good water .

  10. Trump says America has the greatest economy ever on Planet Earth, yet he cuts off aid to country where the children are starving to death and spend billions on a worthless wall rather than feed the hungry.

    We could set up refugee camps on the Guatemala border, put them in tents, let them apply for asylum, conduct asylum hearings, and look for solutions to their climate problems and our immigration situation That is if America really wanted to help..

  11. Every time the Trump trolls post something stupid and hateful, another person decides to vote against Trump. Thanks for the help!

  12. I don't know why evangelicals are backing trump, a liar, a man who had extra marital affairs, racist, anti scientific proof of climate change, trying to befriend with dictators around the world, distancing with the closest allies , criticising truth and getting rid of all his friends who correct him.

  13. Trump's just an old evil man trying to ruin the future for the people he doesn't like and those he likes don't matter to him anyway.
