Movie imitates real life imitates movie

NEWSFLASH: Scientists say blockbuster global warming movie is on shaky ground.

Well, okay—so you’re not exactly surprised, are you.

What they also say, however, is that an oft-mentioned report commissioned by the Department of Defense (mentioned in this post, cough) which gives similar heed to doomsday environmental scenarios may also be on shaky ground.

In fact, the DoD study (which draws in part on strong scientific theory) was written up by two people, neither of whom (apparently) has any background as a climate scientist. Imagine that.
