  1. Weather Channel Co-Founder Tells Fox News Global Warming Is a Myth, Says Polar Bears Are “Happier” Than Ever Before

    100% chance of eye-rolling, with some possible head-to-desk movement in the late afternoon.

    On Monday night, meteorologist and Weather Channel co-founder John Coleman sat down with Fox News host Megyn Kelly to "come out" as a skeptic of global warming and play the world's tiniest violin for climate-change deniers everywhere.

  2. Japanese Scientists Think Climate Change Could Alter Human Male-to-Female Birth Ratio

    And just like that, Congress cares about global warming.

    Since the '70s, Japan has seen a surprising fluctuation in the gender ratio of babies born in the country; specifically, there's been an increase in deaths of male fetuses in relation to deaths of female fetuses, which leads to more female babies being born. Surely that can't have anything to do with the way the temperature has been shifting in Japan over the past 40 years. What's that you say? It might? Well, uh oh.

  3. Ship Lost In Arctic 160 Years Ago Found Due To Global Warming

    Good. Soon we'll need all the ships we can get.

    In 1845 explorer John Franklin set off to explore the Northwest Passage. The adventurer and his ships the HMS Erebus and the terribly-named HMS Terror were never seen again--until very recently, that is.

  4. New Study Shows “Exceptional” And Increasing Trend Caused Sinking Of Titanic

    This relates to my own paper, How many people can fit on a door: more than one, you lunkheads.

    A new paper published today in Significance says that human hubris may not be as wholly responsible for the Titanic disaster as previously thought--and no, that doesn't mean an alien time traveler is to blame. Probably.

  5. LEGO Caught In Political Struggle Between Greenpeace And Shell Oil Company [Updated]

    But...but they're still coming over for Taco Tuesday, right?

    LEGO might be hazardous to more than bare feet, and Greenpeace is willing to kill as many teeny-tiny polar bears as necessary to prove it. (See above. L'il guys didn't stand a chance.)

  6. Texas Museum Removes Exhibit On Climate Change, Keeps Drill Bits And Fracking Simulator

    Psst Ken Ham check it out!

    Last week our very own Glen Tickle explained why The Mary Sue won't be lending credibility to climate change deniers by giving them equal consideration when we write about science. Unfortunately, the freedom to embrace facts (global warming is real, and a real bummer) can be a luxury. Texas' Perot Museum of Nature and Science is in the news for allegedly omitting global warming from its exhibits, but it's not the only educational institution bowing to pressure from climate-change deniers.

  7. NASA Warns That Loss of West Antarctic Glaciers, Rise of Sea Levels Now Unstoppable

    Any news on that extra Earth we ordered?

    A NASA press release today revealed that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet is in an "irreversible state of decline" and rise of sea levels following its destruction will be unstoppable. So excuse me for a second, I need to go breathe heavily into a paper bag.

  8. The Ocean Is Turning Into Acid Because Of CO2, So That’s Fun And Exciting

    Maybe start avoiding the beach? Unless you want to look like Harvey Dent.

    Stop me if you've heard this one, but the ocean is fairly important to, you know, all life on Earth. That being said, it's pretty unfortunate that a new, comprehensive study of our major bodies of water has shown that - slowly - they're all becoming steadily more acidic because of global warming.

  9. Cat Parasites Are Infecting Beluga Whales, So Who’s LOLing Now Cats, Way To Go

    i can haz dead whales?

    The internet loves cats, but it should also love Arctic beluga whales, because whales are great, majestic sea-cats and we need to embrace them. But tragically (and mysteriously) a parasite that previously typically infected cats has been turning up inside Arctic belugas - and scientists aren't really sure why or how this is happening.

  10. The Discovery of Climate Change Might Be Our Greatest Scientific Discovery [Video]

    Hooraaaay?

    Oh boy, PBS Idea Channel's getting into the climate change game. Say what you want about whether it exists, though (and I'm sure you all will); according to Mike Rugnetta, the fact that we've been able to gather so much data about different weather patterns across the globe for a century, standardize all that data, and turn those random numbers into useful and understandable information? That is pretty dang impressive. Seriously, have you ever watched the Weather Channel and thought about how much actual work goes into being able to record and analyze all that stuff? Watch the video already, because Mike explains this all better than I can.
