    I can answer this one guys. "We will be very very dead. We would be SO dead in fact, it wouldn't quite matter how." EDIT: Ok, a piece of the sun. Right, well, still dead, but most would just die from the massive raise in temperature. You know, unsustainable life for more than a few days. Surface temps could get as hot as an oven. Subterranean shithole mole-rat humanoids would starve out and suffocate rapidly.

    climate change and ice age..... great explain to me how can you do so much work figuring stuff out just to insert your belves into a video..... Just for example any kind of dust in atmosphere will rain down and whit in 3th day 99% of it will already fallen. For any kind of sky darkening to last any longer period you need konstantly add more dust to offset fallen one..... BOMBS ARE NOT VOLCANOS THEY DO NOT EXPLODE CONSTANTLY ERGO THEY CANNOT CAUSE DARKENING THE SKY..... AND FOR THE FUKING LAST TIME THERE IS A CLOUDY DAY WE DONT FREEZE!!!!! SUN STILL SHINE TO THE CLOUDS AND THERMAL CONVECTION IN ATMOSPHERE KEEP US WARM!!!! FUKING IDIOTS...

    1. Earth would obviously be the hottest planet 2. Humans would go extinct because the intense blazing heat and/or burn to death. 3. Ash would be falling from the sky 4. Even if some humans survive, they would need cold sources like water and air conditioning, but it would still be way too hot. 5. They can’t even move to Antarctica because the ice will melt. 6. The earths surface will get warmer. 7. Tons of fires and tons and tons of burning things like houses. It would be impossible to live if the sun was brought to Earth.
