Actually, it's a real, serious story about a "possible danger" of global warming: Brain Eating Parasites. :shock:

You can't caricature people who are already this ridiculous. Joe Romm, the author of the article, is a repeat offender regarding this sort of thing.

Nagleria, the amoebic parasite mentioned in the story, very rarely causes disease even in regions where the water is already warm. Few brain doctors have ever seen a case.
