1. Hilarious Amazon Reviewers Take on Bic’s Stupid, Sexist ‘For Her’ Women’s Pens

“Both the US National Academy of Sciences and the American Association for the Advancement of Science use the word “consensus” when describing the state of climate science.
And yet a social consensus on climate change does not exist. Surveys show that the American public’s belief in the science of climate change has mostly declined over the past five years, with large percentages of the population remaining skeptical of the science. Belief declined from 71 percent to 57 percent between April 2008 and October 2009, according to an October 2009 Pew Research Center poll; more recently, belief rose to 62 percent, according to a February 2012 report by the National Survey of American Public Opinion on Climate Change. Such a significant number of dissenters tells us that we do not have a set of socially accepted beliefs on climate change—beliefs that emerge, not from individual preferences, but from societal norms; beliefs that represent those on the political left, right, and center as well as those whose cultural identifications are urban, rural, religious, agnostic, young, old, ethnic, or racial.
Why is this so”

  11. from Cesar Maxit

this poster simply says ‘migrant’ between two stylized milkweed plants (what monarchs use for food and shelter). at the top and bottom are precolumbian butterfly pictograms (aztec, mayan, etc). designed to be painted by hand in migrant communities, the wings of the butterfly are composed of 4 power fists representing migration in the 4 directions. there’s also a simple image of a family at the tip of each wing. the white spots on the wing of the butterfly are actually footsteps showing a northern path on the left wing and a returning south migratory path on the right wing.
