Corn corner

Chuckles has produced his first of this year’s crop. He writes: “Today’s corn pickings, with the corn shucker in the background:”

The globalleftograph appears to be perturbed:

Astronomers reject the idea of Nibiru, and have made efforts to inform the public that there is no threat to Earth.

That’s well and fine but we’ve seen quite a few examples in recent years of ‘scientists’ getting it wrong, not least the IPCC ‘scientists’. And there is something going on at the end of our solar system which has not been satisfactorily explained away – some have mentioned a black hole, SF devotees have mentioned an interface with another dimension.

It may be a bit rich for a believer in the Sky Fairy to smile at the above but there is this:

Plastic

We’re gonna drown in it:

Typical of Scientific Urban Legends, the Garbage Patch grew and grew, in size, nature and villainy, each re-telling adding to the size and content and magnifying the horror of it all.

Key to the Legend is the falsehood  repeated by Tatiana Schlossberg in her NY Times piece — that plastics are somehow magically eternal, that they do not degrade in the environment, and incineration is the only way to destroy them.  A falsehood oddly supported by Dr. Roland Geyer — who ought to know better.
