New York Times Dismantles Its Environment Desk

The reporters were reassigned to the science fiction desk.

“The New York Times will close its environment desk in the next few weeks and assign its seven reporters and two editors to other departments. The positions of environment editor and deputy environment editor are being eliminated. No decision has been made about the fate of the Green Blog, which is edited from the environment desk.” [Inside Climate News]

    Tsk. Mundanes. You clowns have no real idea of what science fiction is – and how its differentiated from fantasy – do you?

    “Science fiction is the most important literature in the history of the world, because it’s the history of ideas, the history of our civilization birthing itself. …Science fiction is central to everything we’ve ever done, and people who make fun of science fiction writers don’t know what they’re talking about.”
