STUDY: Kardashians Get 40 Times More News Coverage Than Ocean Acidification
Ocean acidification, which is currently at levels of 30% acidity and rising, has been called “global warming’s evil twin” and may be even more deadly and destructive than global warming itself, yet it receives very little media coverage. This is a huge media fail.
THAT’S IT. I’M MOVING TO JUPITER.
It’s pretty pathetic when a couple of dumb women who contribute absolutely nothing of interest to the world are considered more important than something that could potentially destroy the world.
Indeed, and this is sadly to be expected. It’s much easier to understand such trite subject matter as the lives of celebrities than to wrap our heads around a complex scientific problem of such a large scale. Plus, it’s more psychologically daunting to worry about solving issues like climate change and ocean acidification, whereas the meaningless lives of celebrity don’t strain our minds the same way.
