    You might enjoy this article here from Michael Mann.

    Doomsday scenarios are as harmful as climate change denial
    I could definitely be wrong (since I don't really keep up with it like I used to), but I honestly don't see very many "denialists" anymore, at least those that have political sway. What I mainly see is push-back against the alarmism aspect, mainly on the political side of the issue and the things they've proposed to try and solve it.

The interviewer really tries to put it to the professor to say that he's interested in eating human meat. He answers that it was just indeed just one of several topics, and that he very much doubts that it would ever be used.

    So methinks the media is just trying to spin this into something big when it was just a weird topic raised for discussion.

    You're just saying that because you're Danish, and go well with cream cheese and coffee.*

    I recommend this prayer, best recited every morning while you brush your teeth:
    I, seer, beg you, merciful Christ, to protect me, lest the storms of the underworld swallow me up.
