Onion Mocks News Media On Climate Science: ‘Nation’s Climatologists Acting Skittish For Some Reason’

In a satirical piece about poor news coverage of climate science, Onion’s obtuse television journalists report that “climatologists around the country have been behaving very strangely.” “Something seems to have spooked the climatologists,” the fake reporter intones, rolling a clip of actual climatologist Thomas Karl warning of catastrophic sea level rise, before saying “we’re not sure why” they’re so upset. “Maybe someday we’ll find what all this jumping around is all about,” the feckless anchor concludes.
