The Times They are a-Changing....

Having just been reading some of Melanie Phillips' drivel about how the entire scientific community is engaged in a Marxist-inspired conspiracy to destroy capitalist freedoms by pretending that there is such a thing as man-made global warming, I felt the time was right to share this old advertisement with you.

You may enjoy following the link to the original 1962 Time magazine edition from which it is taken. It includes more wonderfully dated ads, as well as a report (p.32) on Dean Rusk's attempt to persuade the OAS to oppose the Castro government in Cuba. Also for all fans of The Dish, there's an article (p.41) on the newly-built Parkes radio telescope.

No doubt Mad Mel believes the Apollo missions were all faked by NASA to fool the US government into giving it more money. Let's face it, she's credulous as hell (*).
