Over at the Wall Street Journal, op-edster Robert Bryce has decided that climate change is basically no longer an issue. Mostly he means to say that it's dead as a political issue — he cites the failure of climate talks to produce reasonable carbon taxes and credits. But he doesn't stop there. He thinks it may be dead as a scientific issue, too.
And his hilarious reasoning for this is already spawning internet memes. Here's Bryce's scientific assessment of the situation:
Last month, scientists at CERN, the prestigious high-energy physics lab in Switzerland, reported that neutrinos might-repeat, might-travel faster than the speed of light. If serious scientists can question Einstein's theory of relativity, then there must be room for debate about the workings and complexities of the Earth's atmosphere.
Another good point to make here might be, "If I can chew vegetables, there must be room for debate about whether I can chew steel too." Also, who is to say that I can't control you with my mind? After all, I can control the Gojira action figure on my desk with my hands. I figure that opens up room for debate about a lot of things.
