Watts Up With That? [1]
July 26, 2010

I used to read Scientific American with interest and wonder. My favorite column was The Amateur Scientist [2] because it had so many neat experiments and projects. Now, it is mostly with sadness and incredulity that I occasionally glance at it on the newsstand. I don’t bother subscribing or even buying it for an interesting article TAS article anymore. They’ve lost their way.

Grist magazine wrote on July 24th:

What would the world look like without people? [3]

This is the latest in a series of Saturday GINK videos [4] about population and reproduction (or a lack thereof).

In honor of the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement [5], which we recently profiled [6], here are two videos showing what would happen if we humans suddenly up and disappeared.

I’m shaking my head as I watch this SciAm video, they have an animated musclebound synthetic person as the spokesman wearing a SciAm t-shirt. Yes, it’s that bad. They seem to forget where they came from and who they cater to.

Of course there’s the obligatory “global warming” mention, still going strong after 1000 years, turning NYC’s central park into an African jungle, complete with elephants.

And it’s not just Scientific American pushing this stuff. Nat Geo (another magazine I used to enjoy) also has a video out on the topic that looks like…like…oh heck just watch it, I can’t even describe it.

In both SciAm and the  NatGeo videos they destroy the statue of liberty. I guess either they dislike what it represents, or they have so little creative talent that they have to borrow from the famous scene with Charlton Heston from Planet of the Apes, the original human decline disaster movie.

It’s fine by me if the people at Voluntary Human Extinction Movement [5] want to recuse themselves from Earth, and I’d be totally OK if  SciAm, and NatGeo met with extinction, but please, leave the rest of the human race out of your plans. I notice that the founder of the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement [5] is still around [6], so much for leadership.

Me? I’m going to celebrate life.
