I honestly have considered killing myself so I dont have to face this someday,it scares me that much; I don't want to have to be alive and face this,and suffer..
Update: I was doing well (I suffer with bad anxiety,and all this about GW scares the **** about of me..) I didn't hear anything about it for a while,now the media is talking about it again like crazy..I'm so freaked out..I don't wanna burn to death and suffer...Will it become so hot we all die?

While there is some global warming it is not nearly the catastrophe that you are being led to believe. In fact, it is likely more beneficial than detrimental.

The entire paleoclimate record shows that more warming and more CO2 means more plant life. This is backed by real life evidence of the planet getting greener. We are not going to die, the world is not going to end and civilization will continue.

There has been no global increase in droughts. There has been no statistically significant global increase in any form of extreme weather. If global warming is going to cause some increases, obviously they are so small they can't even be measured over a 60 year time frame.

While global warming will cause some problems, global warming is slow. We have time to make some adjustments and reduce our CO2 emissions. You might want to focus your energy on what you can do at home to reduce the amount of energy you use. While I think global warming will be more beneficial than detrimental, we should lessen our CO2 output for frisk mitigation purposes.

Things you can do to help generally fall under being less wasteful. Recycle, reuse and reduce. Simple methods at home include properly insulating your home, so you don't need to use as much for heating and cooling. This saves you money as well. You might also consider solar panels for your home. They are a bit costly, so save and plan. Overall you will get your money back in saving, but it will take awhile.

Mostly, be aware that there is nothing to be frightened of. The world is not dying, but it is better to leave the world better than you found it, right?
