YouTube time traveler Noah wants you to believe that he’s from the year 2030. He’s taken lie detector tests, given his prediction on how the Philippines will form a mega-country in southeast Asia by next decade, and showed “raw footage” of what Las Vegas will look like next century.
Now, he’s produced a map of the U.S. from 2030, and he showed it in his latest video on the ApexTV YouTube page. And Noah said, “it’s shocking.”
As Noah has explained, he’s originally from the year 2030 but is stuck in the year 2018 and can’t get back to his regular life. He’s become the only recurring character on the ApexTV channel, and he’s earned fans by participating in live Q&A sessions and for constantly returning with new supposed information and props. The channel has developed a cult following with its fun, low-budget “news” reports about time travel.
He recently completed another lie detector test for the channel—ApexTV said he passed the test—but as they were wrapping up their shoot, Noah said he had something else to show the audience. That’s when he produced the alleged map.
“I need to show this to you guys because it’s really important information,” he said. ApexTV continued filming him in the backseat of a car when Noah, with a pixelated face and a modified voice, showed off what he said was his evidence.
It’s a map where much of California and Florida have completely disappeared because global warming melted the ice caps and flooded much of the coastal U.S. “Anything by water,” Noah said, “is completely flooded.”
Even worse, Noah claimed that there are no steps Americans can take to stop this from happening.
Which is a bummer. In 12 years, though, people will get to see whether Noah is right about climate while, at the same time, deciding whether the people who have “very high levels of intelligence” were completely wrong.
