If our readers thought we put climate change on our front pages for the same reason that porn mags put naked women on their front pages, they would stop reading us.”

–Ian Birrell, The Independent

They’ve certainly stopped reading, Ian, though I suspect this is because your rag has become what someone neatly described as “the Daily Mail for people who recycle” and you no longer seem interested in collecting factual information—“news gathering” as some newspapers call it. Putting naked women on the front page might be your last hope.

[Note: this post is not in the “Pseudoscience” category because I think all theories about climate change are pseudoscience, but because the Independent is happy to publish pseudoscience about climate change and many other things.]
