A Climatologist Reviews The Day After Tomorrow

In rec.arts.sf.written, William Hyde, a climatologist, said he'd only see the movie for $100, and Dreamer, a Happy Nonsense Discordian, arranged for an auction to make it happen.

Here's the run-up to the event:

Here's the review.

"In short, This movie is to climate science as Frankenstein is to heart transplant surgery."

On the off-chance that anyone reading this doesn't know about rec.arts.sf.written, it's a newsgroup for the discussion of written sf--it includes both science fiction and fantasy since no one has ever been able to adequately define the difference. The discussion tends to drift but is dragged back to sf often enough.

Newsgroups are open public discussion areas--you can get to them at Groups at Google. They've been around much longer than lj, and there are sophisticated tools for killfiling people or subjects you don't want to read and/or having what you do want to read brought to your attention. There's a German site that's supposed to be better than google for reading newsgroups, but I can't remember the name at the moment. If anyone's interested, I'll try to dredge it out of memory.

I use trn in pine (a primitive telnet sort of approach).
