    Love how they say bringing an apocalyptic ending to the world would at least "solve man-made climate change for a few decades". If it takes a world-ending event to halt "climate change", perhaps we're better off with a gradual degree increase here and there....

    Listen, I've come across lots of your videos now, and while some of your ideas are nice: "what if we didn't leave the EU?" "what if we build a colony on mars?"; others like "what if we bring the earth to the sun" and "what if we blow up all our nukes in the Amazon?" seem ill-thought through and not things we should be doing, at least until we've perfected virtual handball as a species. I am making my personal recommendation that you don't become the head of scientific experiments for the UN. I am sorry.

    All of this video goes on numbers and data that isn't stated or proven. Entirely a straw man argument. You never say how much, in what way you'd get it, and where you're putting it. You just assume it's a significant amount and go on data that is entirely theoretical. If you took 1 atom from the sun, basically nothing would happen. If you took the entire sun, the earth would Evaporate. I don't even have to prove that Math for the outcomes to be obvious. You need to specify.
