Freaking classic. These clowns waited 8 years for the climate change to kill everyone in Westeros and *POOF* it’s gone:
Game of Thrones is not about climate change after all as HBO wimps out https://t.co/yawReMRm9V pic.twitter.com/7oK4QlwF79

“LMAOOO” is the proper, an only response:

Wait, it gets dumber! They’re mad Arya Stark was able to easily kill the Night King with a Valyrian steel dagger:
The huge HBO hit Game of Thrones has long been seen as a metaphor or parable for the climate crisis — and the author of the original books, George R.R. Martin, said as much last year, calling his story “a great parallel” to modern day climate change.
But in the show’s eighth and final season, as the TV series races far past where Martin left the story in his still unfinished book series, HBO’s writers and show runners have literally shattered the entire metaphor. (Warning, spoilers are coming.)
One of the show’s heroes single-handedly ended the existential climate threat with a clever knife trick — abruptly returning the storyline to a conventional tale of humans fighting among themselves for political power.
Have they not been watching the show? The Night King was destroyed by a coalition of fighters from 3 fictional continents that resulted in the death of thousands before he was defeated. To ThinkProgress, that was just one person:
In the real world, climate change is far too challenging a threat to be ended by one person — or even one battle that doesn’t include all of the major powers.
Anyway, we’re still laughing at them:
HAHAHAHAHAHHA *takes huge breath* AHAHAHAHAA https://t.co/5oqmmbHZXe
