Boring Revkin

(comment posted in reply to “Your Dot: What’s Really Boring?“, on the subject of climate change being too boring – have added a couple of links to spice it up 😉 )

The challenge for the dangerous aspects of human-forced climate change to become interesting enough to appear in the news is truly daunting. If that’ll ever happen, it will be the very first time that something that is neither “soon, salient or certain” would be appearing on anybody’s Newsmap.

That alone explains the amount of “science-poor climate swill” the media obsesses over.

Suffice it to say that most of the work done by CDC or NCSE does not appear in the news. Perhaps people worried about climate change should embrace boredom, and stop chasing sensational headlines.
