“Global Cooling” Is Based On Shoddy Reporting From The 1970s

Published

If you haven’t heard of “global cooling” by now, congratulate yourself on avoiding some of the dumbest corners of the internet. Global cooling is the idea that not only is climate change wrong, it’s so wrong that the world is going in the opposite direction. As in, humans destroying the environment is the only thing saving us from another ice age. It’s the pseudo-scientific equivalent of a Jaden Smith tweet: “How can global warming be real if it’s cold outside in winter?”

Donald Trump said: “You look back and they were calling it global cooling and global warming and global everything,” because he has the best words. According to Politico(citing four White House sources), deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland recently printed out a Time magazine cover about global cooling from 1977, and served it as part of Trump’s daily cocktail of reassuring news. Before the president could tweet about it, however, staffers found out that it was in fact a shitty meme using a fake cover (Time covers didn’t even look like that in the ’70s).

And because nothing makes sense anymore, global coolists(?) also include folks on the United States House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. The official Twitter account of the Committee linked to a Breitbart article promoting the cooling “theory,” which was essentially rephrased from another article by The Daily Mail. You know, a tabloid. That piece itself riffed on a “consensus” of scientists from the 1970s that the world was definitely getting colder. As you’ve probably guessed if you’re even passably familiar with The Daily Mail‘s idea of journalism, said consensus didn’t exist, and it was actually the opposite.

The supposed consensus boiled down to “only 7 articles indicating cooling compared to 44 indicating warming,” which whiz kids at home will recognize as an “anti-consensus.” Plus, most of those articles didn’t even make long-term predictions. One of the most frequently lauded articles by the global cooling crowd is a 1975 Newsweek cover story by Peter Gwynne titled “Cooling World.” But according to Gwynne himself, “My 1975 ‘Cooling World’ story doesn’t make today’s climate scientists wrong … It’s time for deniers of human-caused global warming to stop using an old magazine story against climate scientists.” Well, someone earned himself a ban from the president’s daily news pile.

Top 5 Hilarious Jokes on Batman

Published

on

By

For what reason do we like making Batman jokes? Is it because – regardless of the character being something made for kids – there’s unavoidable obscurity that exemplifies the style, as well as figured out how to spread out through whatever is left of the ordinance?

To such an extent that even the animated arrangement feels darker than consistent youngsters’ modifying? Or on the other hand is it because the idea of a developed man and his more youthful companion circling in tights offers to us in an adolescent and guileless way? Or then again perhaps it’s simply straightforward to make bat-based plays on words. Whatever the reason, we’ve assembled a rundown of our most loved jokes and plays on words in light of our most loved caped crusader. What’s more, indeed, these are the Batman jokes that you merit, and need.

What Happens When Batman Sees Catwoman?
The Dark Knight Rises

What Do You Call It When Batman Skips Church?
Christian Bale

When Is Joker Not Plotting A Murder?
When he’s riding his Harley!

What’s The Difference Between Batman & A Robber
Batman can go into a store without Robin!

Batman & Robin Go Camping In The Desert:After setting up their tent and falling asleep,  Batman wakes his faithful friend. “Robin, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.”
Robin replies, “ I see millions of stars.”
“What does that tell you?” asks Batman.
Robin ponders for a minute.
“Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.
Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo.
Chronologically, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three.
Theologically, it’s evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant.
Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.
What does it tell you, Batman?”
Batman is silent for a moment, then speaks:
“Robin, you idiot, someone has stolen our tent.”
