Who Wants to Get Really Depressed About Climate Change? Thanks, Adam Ruins Everything!

In the latest trailer for TruTV’s Adam Ruins Everything, host Adam Conover talks about climate change in the most realistic and depressing way possible. Like, you know how him “ruining” stuff is often funny? Yeah…this isn’t even funny.

Conover is joined by NYU Professor of Environmental Studies, Dale Jameson, who breaks down the fact that we’ve already done so much damage to the Earth’s atmosphere that “we’d be lucky if we can hold the warming to two degrees Celsius.” In other words, it’s not a matter of if climate change is going to happen. It’s already happening. It’s just a matter of how bad things are going to get. Damn. And I thought this scene in The Newsroom was bleak:

It seems like the Cheeto-In-Chief is not the reason to fear the Apocalypse. The cause for the inevitable Apocalypse has already happened. Awesome.

Thanks, Adam Ruins Everything.
