My local alternate weekly in Chico has a “Green Guide”. This week’s lead story was “Scientists break ice in Greenland”. There’s only one problem.
They included a picture of Antarctica with the story.
While also an island of ice like Greenland, there’s extra points deducted for juxtaposing Antarctica with the word “Arctic” in the story.
I find it all hemispherically hilarious. I know geography is hard, but please, do try harder. Google Earth is always helpful at finding those pesky out of the way places you’ve never visited.
UPDATE: To be fair and thorough, I decided to swim upstream into the news feed current to their cited source the “Environmental News Network” to see what map they provided, just in case the map error originated there. ENN had it right and showed Greenland, though they did mention Antarctica in the first sentence talking about the two largest ice sheets on Earth.
About 18 hours after I first published this, the Chico News and Review took out the picture of Antarctica from the online edition, though it remains of course in the print edition.
