Feminism is destroying the planet!

Popular Science points to a tongue-in-cheek "study" by Sean Carroll of Cosmic Variance (a group blog by five physicists): it's feminism, not greenhouse gas, that's causing global warming. Carroll used Google's Gapminder World to generate the correlating graph.

Conclusion, from Carroll's study:
"The correlation is clear as the Los Angeles haze — countries that educate women are dumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Now, unless you’re crazy enough to think that it’s the CO2 that is causing all those girls to go get themselves an education, I think the implication is obvious: feminism is destroying the planet."

As clear as the Los Angeles haze...get it? And hey, an article that calls Al Gore a tree-hugger and a girly man can't be that bad, right? It's a gas.

As Mario would say: "You fool! You have doomed us all!"
