Grab some SPF 7,000,000.
Here in the U.S. we have a never-ending competition among the states to see which one can enact the dumbest laws.
This polar bear mother and her cub will likely be able to swim ashore, but seriously guys, global warming sucks. View Image ›
Worst case scenario if we proceed as if global warming is a genuine threat. Scary, scary stuff. View Image ›
Eugene Mirman takes to the streets of Copenhagen for Grist TV to get a sense of what the dreadlocked population of Denmark think about the UN Climate Change summit. It’s nice to see that America isn’t the only place with crazy global warming deniers. Watch Video ›
The Yes Men, the same guys behind the fake New York Times prank, have done it again, this time distributing a fake New York Post filled with factual information that detail the threats posed by climate change. We can only assume that these guys are the product of Michael Moore eating Ashton Kutcher and pooping out citizen journalism pranksters. Watch Video ›
The Yes Men are back, and SurvivaBall is nothing less than a self-contained living system—truly, a gated community for one. If you have a SurvivaBall, even if everyone else is dying, at least you can weather all storms. (via) View Media ›
As China runs out of landfill space, it is racing to build incinerators, a growing source of toxic emissions.
I love Chris Matthews. Watch him cut through this GOP front man like a Ginsu through Tofu. I appreciate Matthew’s persistence by not letting Pence ignore the issue. Watch Video ›
Apparently, web address registrar giant GoDaddy is advising against people buying dot-TV domains, as the island that owns the domain — the island of Tuvalu — is actually sinking. After a bit of research (ie Google), I am not entirely sure whether the island of Tuvalu is actually sinking, but according to GoDaddy owner Bob Parsons, your .tv domains will be safe if the island goes under.

A rocket carrying a NASA global warming satellite splashed into the ocean near Antarctica after a failed launch. In NASA’s defense, this was, actually, rocket science.
Global warming is shifting birds’ habitats northward. The purple finch has moved all the way from Missouri to Wisconsin.
In an attempt to be awful and support environmental collapse, the fashion house is creating “the world’s first refrigerated beach” at the Palazzo Versace Hotel in Dubai. Said the hotel’s president, “We will suck the heat out of the sand to keep it cool enough to lie on [because] this is the kind of luxury that top people want.” You hear that, Top People? Amid economic crises and the global warming epidemic, the world’s douchiest resort will soon be at your very fingertips! Read More ›
A very clever way to protest climate change and callousness towards the environment. Somebody get this guy an industrial strength air conditioner. View Image ›
Frozen genitalia from the ice floes of Antarctica. The only thing more feared by sailors than the giant ice penis is the frozen vagina of doom (not pictured). View Image ›
Where will we be in fifty years? Probably hanging out on “Biggest Island Available” living in igloo condos. Nozone Magazine stole this poster from the secret Inconvenient Truth outtakes. View Image ›
The people of Greenland want to be free! Greenland is a protectorate dependent on Denmark for money and food. But global warming is melting Greenland’s icecap, freeing up farmland and unlocking revenue from the exploration for oil, minerals, and diamonds. That means Greenland might soon be free. When it comes to independence, the people of Greenland are really Inuit! View Image ›
Study by Argentinian scientists investigates effects of bovine produced methane on global warming. And it’s frickin’ dangerous!…With cows emitting between 8,000 and 1,000 liters of the gas a day, and methane absorbing 23 times more heat than carbon dioxide, we have finally identified the real source of global warming. Get on it Al Gore. Read More ›
Join the global movement to live on only 2000 Watts of energy a day. The average American lives a 11,400 Watt life - six times the goal. Europeans are better but still over the limit - they live 5,400 Watt lives. Combined with alternative energy sources, the 2000-Watt Society could stop global warming without ruining the enjoyment of our lives. In the words of project director Roland Stulz: “it’s not starving, it’s not having less comfort or fun. It’s a creative approach to the future.” View Image ›
Scientists say the ice at the North Pole is on course to fully melt during this summer. It’d be the first time in human history that a boat could reach the North Pole. It’s a worrying sign of global warming, but also makes Arctic drilling for oil and gas all that more likely. Read More ›
The mythic trash pile growing in the middle of the Pacific Ocean is now twice the size of the U.S. Hopefully all the trash will soon coalesce into some type of floating island so that the entire population of the Maldives can be moved there once global warming destroys their homeland. Silver linings! Read More ›
Could polar cities be the fallout shelters of the climate change era? In a development that could be a major boon to the fleece industry, a group of futurists, scientists, and planners has proposed building sustainable campus-like villages throughout the Arctic hinterlands to save us from the coming environmental apocalypse. Construction on the first will begin in Longyearbyen, Norway, in 2012. If these plans are carried out, the incidence of polar warfare seems certain to rise. Read More ›
