  1. Ta Tigtog, i see there were no csiro scientists there.

    • Roger Jones is ex-CSIRO, I think.

      I imagine not all organisations would be cool with their scientists doing media stuff.

  2. oh my god that is beautiful. THE INTERNETS THEY HAVE WON THEM.

  3. Fuck it, I hate it when something that should be OMGFABULOUS yet afuckinggain has a whacking great dose of sexism and homophobia at its core. Characterising denialists/politicians as “bitches” who are “too busy sucking dick”? What did that add?

  4. I noticed that and wanted to barf too, Lauredhel. So disappointing.

    • Sorry for not warning about those moments of fail. I liked the rest of it so much that I subconsciously glided over those, as those of us with privilege do.
      It would be really nice if, once in a while, white folks playing off the rapper tropes realised that they don’t have to include so-called ‘gangsta’ slang/slurs. It’s not compulsory, really.

  5. @dylan agh:

    i see there were no csiro scientists there

    That’s because we’re officially not allowed to have an opinion, if we identify that we are working for CSIRO and that opinion might have anything to do with anything political. At all. This is what happens when we do express an opinion, even when that opinion is backed up by scientific evidence.
    In fact, posting this might count as political. Oh well, I was going to be looking out for a new job soon anyway.
