    Hmm not sure about this climate change. The geography looked more Tahitian than Marquesan, the VR doesn't hold up

    Unless you've invented the holodeck, a green screen segment does not count as virtual reality. If you've invented the holodeck, please share with the world. We promise we won't use it for twisted sexual purposes.

    Climate change is a challenge for the US? More like, it's a challenge for the planet.

    It is hot enough on the surface of Venus to melt led. Melt led. Just melt it, right there on the dirt. It's that hot because the atmosphere is mostly carbon dioxide. So, when you see the nerds start to freak out about lots of carbon dioxide in the EARTH'S atmosphere you know why. Sure we won't be able to dump enough CO2 into the air to get the oceans to boil, but it doesn't take too many degrees to convert Antarctica to a tropical island.
    One group of people is setting the living room of our house on fire and hiding in the bedroom, proclaiming they can pray the flames away so everything is fine.

    This isn’t funny tbh. This just pushes the population further to not take this crisis seriously.

      Just curious, fruits and vegetables also need to be transported many miles. How is that different than transporting beef? It's not. It's just many vegans have a superiority complex. Cutting out fossil fuels would also impact fruits and vegetables. Depopulation is the only answer.

    You should have tried the idea that @ Annie suggested in the comments that have the guy as Trump losing everything he holds dear to climate change .Now THAT would make people take notice and even Trump would hate it. So Good thinking Annie. 👏🙌 That's the only way you can get away with this being funny as sadly it isn't , especially as the Rain Forest is STILL on fire Aug 2019 😢😞

    Why bother with the simulation? You could have just reported the news, especially from Australia
    Feb this year, 400,000 cows drowned by a flood that covered an area the size of France & Germany combined under a metre of fast moving water
    A few years back a firestorm with the power of 1,500 Hiroshima bombs, sending sparks 20kms ahead of the firefront to start new fires that obliterated entire towns before firecrews could even reach the new firefront
    oh nm, as long as Sheila & Tyler were also in the Boxing Day Tsunami in Thailand all is good :)

    LMAO I really enjoyed this sketch!!! I like that you guys are doing something a bit different in your shows! It's a refreshing shake up, that makes you stand out amongst all the other nightly talk shows! Great work Late night!!!

    That was pretty good. Not too often we can somehow be amused when the subject of Climate Change comes up. Leave it to Seth Meyers to entertain us nonetheless.

    Here in Canada, we've got the arctic melting right above us.. with humidity levels of 90 goddamned percent and more! I'd prefer virtual reality to living in a gigantic outdoor sauna..

    What a waste. They could have made a good and funny segment on climate change and then just blew it off. In 12 years we are going to look back like damn that is what we were doing in the face of catastrophe. Dumb asses. SMH

      I guess you could say we were both there when the timeline fractured and the 6 minute comedy bit on a late night talk show after midnight that was supposed to change the world decided to make something funny instead

      Where were you, Seth, to save us?

    You don't need a simulator. It's happening right now all around you. Galveston what's 100 degrees day and night for days. An ice-free Arctic in 2019 or 2020 guarantees and abrupt spike in temperatures, more wildfires, droughts, Superstorms and Rainbombs, more crop losses, already happening right now, famine, already happening right now, Mass migration of hundreds of millions of people, also happening right now, together leading to civil unrest and riots, then collapse and extinction of all life on Earth when skilled labor stops maintaining 1600 nuclear plants including 450 generating stations, and toxic facilities already leaking, destroying habitats, our rivers and oceans. Meanwhile Plankton biomass is down 50%. That means our primary oxygen machine is broken and our backup oxygen machine, the Amazon, it's being Black by Brazil's Bolsonaro. Meanwhile vertebrae biomass is down 60%, insects are down 50% to 90% depending on region and Fisheries are crashing. You have months, not years let alone decades. Buy wine now while it's still under $500 per bottle.

    lame - kinda felt like you guys were punching down, too. no upside to climate change, either unfortunately - if least favorable predictions come about we're going to be cursing the day we all sat back and made jokes
