Needs a swimsuit.
Sorry! Forgot the "Projectile Vomit Alert".
this looks like a parody - SI has gone liberal in a bad way
You have got to be kidding me.
This *is* a joke, right?
To top it off I the lady tries to get me to subscribe to Time magazine. I said I'm a right wing conservative and would use most likely use Time for toilet paper.
Anyone else get this without subscribing?
What are they whining about? Marlin are fish anyway.
They're going to lose subscribers over this.
They should have keyed that to the steroids story instead. (Are we drowning our sports with chemicals?)
I posted about SI being a liberal rag a year or two ago, and got ridiculed big time by a few people for saying that.
Hmmmm, who was right about that one?
BUMP! Because this is just outrageous.
I'm guessing it is a joke. Otherwise the cover would include "This Is Bush's Fault!"
That is pretty stupid.
Even though they did not say global warming is man's fault, they said climate change.
Its stupid because climate change to create a flood of that nature would take 100s of years.
they act like the world is gonna flood tomorrow.
You've got to be kidding me...
How many carbon credits does an issue cost?
Wow, that's some pretty lame doctoring. I mean, they should at least TRY to make it look real.
seriously though - you can't even watch the weather channel anymore. inside every block, is something on climate change. its insanity, I just want the damn forecast.
That dude on the cover might want to try some of those NASA diapers.
This crap is everywhere. More sickening by the day.
I really feel sorry for little children. What a hell of a world they are going to have.
"You've got to be kidding me..."
No kidding....We are doomed.
NYC forecast for tommorrow - the record low of 10 degrees, will be broken tommorrow night.
Good grief. Is SI looking for social relevance? Talking about steroids or even domestic violence might be right up their alley but this reeks of PC run amok.
Unbelievable. I guess they think that their main readers are high school kids who will believe anything that the see in print.
This has GOT to be the dumbest thing I've seen in a long time. Just what were those dopes smoking when they came up with that idiotic story?
I'm afraid it's not a joke, unless someone has gone to a LOT of trouble to make it.
The domain appears to be a valid CNN.COM domain and I don't think you can fake that easily.
And the cover is certainly a professional piece of work.
So I'm afraid it's real.
It might be a more interesting story than you might think though, since it's talking about ways to cope with global warming, something I'd be interested in.
That is, if global warming is happening, I'd love to know how we can adjust to it, as opposed to how to stop it. After all, to be honest, most parts of the world would be better off with warmer weather. I have read that the hot parts of the world will hardly be affected at all, and winter will be far more affected than summer, so human comfort-wise global warming of a few degrees would be a very clear win-win.
So if we could prevent global warming from affecting the polar ice caps and increasing sea levels, I'd like to see it happen. I think we should be thinking about how to do that instead of trying to figure out how to prevent warming.
Someday we will look back on all this hype and laugh.
Gawd what madness.
And to think it was only in the 1970s when the gloomer-and-doomers were warning us about the upcoming ice age, how the Earth was cooling, and that in 10 years we'd be facing catastrophic results (fewer crops, shorter growing seasons, etc.). My, how things change.
Then shouldn't they close their doors to protect the trees??
Pray for W and Our Troops
Well I'm feeling challenged. I shall return.
Oh for Pete's sake. What's next Cooking Recipes for a World of Global Wamring?
Disgusting that the editors are so easily duped.
I sure hope so.
It's nice to see that they found something they know even less about than sports.
I got 8 free issues for buying something at Best Buy. I've received 4 issues, so far. I just cancelled the rest of the issues.
How frickin stupid can they be.
LOL, that didn't take long.
Yeah, this would have been more believable had they done this for the swimsuit issue.
And then put all the babes in eskimo outfits.
Climate change! Climate change!
What a load of Mohammad.
That's EXCELLENT! Har!
I hate commies.
That's why I love Free Republic.
Time's no good for that. Good only as landfill... unopened... unread.
And don't forget National Geographic and Smithsonian. I almost cried when my favorite magazine of my childhood had to be denied to my child (National G). My grandmother had every issue going back to the early 20s stored in a closet for my enjoyment and kept a subscription until she went to the nursing home in the early 90s. I still have the Admiral Perry at the Pole issue with hand tinted photos.
But, National G went WAY south with new management and when they called about my cancellation I told them exactly why. I thumbed one at the docs the other day; guess I did not make a difference.
"They're going to lose subscribers over this."
Hopefully subscribers are not so hot-headed as to cancel subscriptions WITHOUT demanding carbon credits in return.
Fewer magazines - more trees, less production related CO2 "pollution."
