When drama-queen meteorologist Eric Holthaus warns that “personal tweets” are on the way, he’s not messing around. Ready for a little climate change oversharing?

First up: Public tears. Yes, tears, over the new report from the IPCC.

More on that report from the Daily Mail’s coverage of the former Wall Street Journal meteorologist’s freak-out:

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change used its strongest language yet in the report on the causes of climate change, prompting calls for global action to control emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases.

‘If this isn’t an alarm bell, then I don’t know what one is. If ever there were an issue that demanded greater cooperation, partnership, and committed diplomacy, this is it,’ said US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Dramatic prairie dog’s got nothin’ on Holthaus. The tears are a-flowin’ and starting, um, y’know, now-ish, he refuses to fly.

No flying … and no kids. The hysterical Holthaus welcomes extinction with open arms:

We’ll spare you his full rant about carbon dioxide removal and a global price on carbon, but here’s a selection of tweets.

Heh:

Holthaus replaced his globe-trotting bio with a simple “I don’t fly.”

But back to pesky babies and their filthy carbon footprints.

Snip, snip, snip:

We have a feeling that’s not going to make a vas deferens.

"We're polluting earth."

"I know!"

"I'm going to recycle more, drive less"

"I'm getting a vasectomy!"

"Wow. Ok"

But the idea did get a few endorsements.
