Today I was pleased to learn that something I’ve been predicting for ten years has finally happened:

“Scientists” have now “discovered” that those “holes in the ozone layer” we spent the last twenty years “fixing” are actually “good for the planet” because they “prevent ‘global warming.'”

Science is bunk.

Speaking of bunk:  I’m no Photoshop expert, but I do know walruses are fat.

And I’m looking at that online article at The Scotsman, and I’m thinking:  the only thing missing in that stock photo is a mail order rifle and a copy of The Militant…

Luckily, my fellow blogger and co-defendant Kate McMillan is also a professional artist and photographer. So I sent her the link, and she immediately replied:

“I want to know how high they can jump. Nice catch.”

Let’s review, shall we? A major newspaper just used really fake looking stock photo to illustrate a “news” story about the latest fake scientific findings, designed to refute those old fake scientific findings we were all stressed out about back in the ’80s.

PS: Kate spent one minute on Google and discovered that:

The original photo caption at Greenpeace says it was taken in Alaska in 1999. So, obviously, it’s just the ticket to illustrate a story about ozone over the opposite pole.

And they wonder why newspapers are dying.
