"Dilbert joins the climate realists"
Not quite the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Climate Change (see “MIT joins climate realists, doubles its projection of global warming by 2100 to 5.1°C“) and not quite the UK’s Met Office (see “Hadley Center: Catastrophic 5-7°C warming by 2100 on current emissions path“).
But I think he gets more readers.
What’s really funny is that a standard slide I use (see video here) compares the large and growing U.S. funding for health R&D with the small and (until recently) shrinking energy R&D, to which I comment: “We may not solve the global warming problem, but at least we’ll live long enough to see how screwed we are.”
Perhaps I need a new category, “gallows humor.”
