This is not, we repeat, NOT a parody.
One of our readers submitted this item on climate change derangement – and we agree that it is a must-read.
This study is going viral on social media and was authored by FOUR scholars from Dartmouth College – which last time we checked was considered an Ivy League school.
The study titled “Global Warming, Home Runs, and the Future of America’s Pastime” concludes that climate change caused about 500 more home runs over the years 2010-19. But the authors concede that “other factors” are more responsible AS OF NOW than global warming. You see, global warming is causing a “reduction in ballpark air density.”
If the planet keeps warming, the balls will sail out of the park much faster than they did during the steroid era. Every team will have two or three Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa.
It took a professor of ecology, a professor of geography, a professor of anthropology, and a professor of earth science to bring their great minds together and collaborate on this pathbreaking study.
Do we need any more evidence that college professors have way, way too much time on their hands?
Aaron Judge clobbers his 62nd home run –
but could he have done it in the pre-global warming era?
