Stephen Hawking fears Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate change agreement could be the “tipping point” which wipes out humanity and turns our planet into a living hell.
The British professor is worried that The Donald’s rejection of this plan to combat global warming could cause irreversible changes which doom our planet to a grim fate.
In recent years, Hawking has become something of a doom-monger who is determined to sketch out a variety of grim fates which await the human race.
In his latest prophecy, the professor suggested our planet could be destined to become totally uninhabitable.
“We are close to the tipping point where global warming becomes irreversible. Trump’s action could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees, and raining sulphuric acid,” he told the BBC.
“Climate change is one of the great dangers we face, and it’s one we can prevent if we act now.
“By denying the evidence for climate change, and pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, Donald Trump will cause avoidable environmental damage to our beautiful planet, endangering the natural world, for us and our children.”
The famed physicist and doom monger also fears that “evolution has inbuilt greed and aggression to the human genome”, meaning that we might wipe ourselves out before Earth turns into Venus.
