Global Bullshit Level RisesColumbia University Receives Millions for ‘Climate Change Games’: Awarded $5.7 million of taxpayer money to fearmonger participants.
One “mock voicemail” (which takes place in the year 2065) has a man calling his mother and saying, “"If the tsunami doesn't get us, the heat might.... I’m just calling to say I love you and I miss you and it might be the last time you hear my voice. Bye.”

This is just so totally awaiting abusive mockery and taking over by realists. "We never stop laughing in our era at the hysterical cries over weather in the late 21st century"

Well that's just ridiculous. Obviously telecommunications would have failed due to a climate change-related EMP attack long before such a message could be delivered.

Uh, I'm not so sure many of us will see 2065. I know I won't. As to the money, our inglorious leader spends more than that every time he plays golf. You and I, we can envision doing things with a million or so. The half-breed faggot, he just wipes his hands on the bread and throws it over the railing to the peasants waiting below.

C'mon Rob, don't try, sidetrack me. The image comes from a description of wealthy landowners and minor nobility having a big meal while the peasants starve. Decadent like those French kings, so forth. As they consume lots of rich greasy food they make a gesture to the peasants by wiping their hands on the bread and flinging it over. I'd have Steadman illustrate it.

The Steadman image seals the deal, all right.
