The Ever Shifting Consensus
Astronomers have been warning for decades that life on Earth could be wiped out by a collision with a giant meteorite; it hasn't happened yet, but that doesn't mean that journalists have been dupes or alarmists for reporting this news.A different doomsday scenario has not happened yet, so we should not discount this one. Great logic. The Earth has also not collapsed into a black hole, but that does not disprove that it could not happen.
I think I know what we can expect to see from Newsweek in another 30 years.
