OBAMA TO ROLLING STONE: CLIMATE CHANGE IS SO TERRIBLE I DARE NOT TELL YOU THE FULL TRUTH

Big Journalism- I’ve just watched the latest Rolling Stone video on climate change featuring an exclusive hour-long interview with President Obama – and I’m scared. Really scared.

screaming man

The first thing that scares me is what it says about the decline of journalism generally and at Rolling Stone in particular.  

Can this really be the same magazine that launched Hunter S Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which employed Lester Bangs, Joe Klein, Joe Eszterhas and PJ O’Rourke, and which gave us that OK-ish Cameron Crowe movie where the autobiographical hero never got to sleep with Kate Hudson?

And oughtn’t Rolling Stone to be trying to raise the bar rather than lower it after the appalling fiasco of its UVA rape story reportage?

  1. “Part of my job is to read stuff that terrifies me all the time,” replies the president.

    …and then crumple it up and toss it on the floor of your golf cart after reading the subject line, you mincing ponce. The only thing I needed you to hide from me is how pathetically ignorant you are, and you couldn’t even do that right. Eff off.

  2. Galactic flares from the Milky Way occuring daily now. Well, it started a long time ago, but we’re just seeing it based on how far light travels and how space weather works. This will have an impact on our star, our solar system, and the climate on Earth. No money, no human, nothing we do can stop it. Enjoy the day!

  3. I once had a boss tell me that the sun had nothing to do with global warming and became visibly upset that I would dare say anything like that. Is world is full of dumb bastards and journalism is like Mecca to them.

  4. You have my permission to terrify me. And while your at it, terrify me with additional information such as (1) what percentage of climate change is man made as opposed to change due to natural causes; (2) what do real scientists, as opposed to politicians, propose to do and why; (3) is our current climate change bad, and if so why; (4) how much will it cost, and who is going to pay the cost; (5) what will happen if (or probably when) you are proven wrong; (6) will tossing ship loads of money at climate change change anything; (7) how can we be sure that any supposed solutions to this assumed problem will not fuck things up more than politicians normally fuck things up?

  5. When was the last time Rolling Stone magazine was relevant? I quit reading it way back in the early 80’s right after I graduated from college. And to tell you the truth it wasn’t that great even back then, it was like People magazine for dumbass college kids and stoners.

  6. 1) 100%
    2) We need to give them money to find out.
    3) Yes because it’s not good.
    4) It’s open ended, and the tax payer pays
    5) It’s settled science, remember?
    6) See #2.
    7) It’s different this time.

  7. Maybe I missed the memo from the Desk of Dipshit, but why are we shipping almost all of our coal to China and Asia where it is burned without pollution controls while shutting down plants here that burn it cleanly?

    Simply another case in point where all the degreed, dumbed-down, self-absorbed, spoon-fed, celebrity-obsessed, White guilt-ridden, Birkenstock-wearing, bottled-water-drinking, kumbaya-singing, Xanax-disabled, Rainbow Plantation, COEXIST bumper-sticker Liberal morons can’t see the forest for the trees! If they’re sooooo concerned about Global Warming, how come they only know how to vilify the United States? Hmmmmmmm???
