WOW! I can't believe you just posted this. Fifteen minutes ago I checked my mailbox and found this. I never subscribed to them, so I called them up and asked how the hell did it get here? They said I signed up at a football game which is total BS! I never sign up for stuff like this.

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?

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?

Nope. (Well, it IS a joke, but not to the writers of SI):

As global warming changes the planet, it is changing the sports world too. Already, surprising and innovative ideas are helping sports to adapt.

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.

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.

I dumped my subscription last year because of the leftward tilt inserted wherever they could. I will let my Scientific American subscription lapse for the same reason this year.

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.

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.

I've never seen an overpaid, over hyped athlete who didn't drive a gas guzzling vehicle, or was chauffeured around in a limo.

And don't steroids produce an inordinate amount of gas. Isn't that where the term "pump you up" came from?

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."
