“Global warming doesn’t mean every day is hot as the surface of the Sun from now on. Winter still happens & occasionally some of us will be very cold.

If you want consistently hot global temps. though it is only a matter of (a very long) time until the Sun swells to its red giant phase

On the scale of the cosmos, though, the universe is cooling, & is probably doomed to a cold empty death & cessation of all processes

In some sense, every expenditure of energy, every word spoken, adds to the disorder of the universe & brings it closer to this 'heat death.'”
