Scientific American is not a scientific journal, but it’s ostensibly scientific in nature. Or at least, it used to be.

Clearly things have changed quite a bit over the past several years.

Apparently now, Science™ is about taking cues from media fearmongers:

Because nothing says “we’re committed to The Science™” like using terminology meant to appeal to people’s emotions rather than their reason.

It’s The Science™ according to Bill Nye the Science Guy, basically.

They’re definitely not about science anymore.

Maybe someday, Scientific American will regret their decision.

Until then:
