From last week’s New Scientist: hope we are saner than this!
PARANOID observation of the week comes to us from Russia, courtesy of Jeff Clarke, who uncovered it at the news site RT.com.
Operating on the principle that readers’ comments on news events can be more interesting than the coverage of the news itself, Jeff turned to what RT’s readers had to say about the cataclysmic meteorite event at Chelyabinsk on 15 February.
The not-untypical comment he draws our attention to is: “Europe is to blame. They’re using all those wind farms they are building to blow the planet off course, and deliberately tried to make Earth collide with this meteorite whilst it was over Russia.”
