These Satirical Nat Geo Headlines Aren't Too Far Off
McSweeney’s "National Geographic Articles in the Year 2030" actually reminded us of some pretty cool stories.
Just because we’re 129 years old doesn’t mean we here at National Geographic can't laugh at ourselves. So when Bob Vulfov of McSweeney’s mocked up some satirical National Geographic headlines from the year 2030…well, we’ll admit it. We chuckled.
My personal favorite is “These Striking Photographs Show the Best On-Fire Lakes from Around the World”—it’s a spot-on impression of my own headline about climate change portraits that are, indeed, striking.
Tapping into Americans’ acute and partisan anxieties about climate change, Vulfov imagines 2030 as a dystopian desert wasteland where biker gangs and Trump hotels reign supreme. (Read up on this running list of ways Trump is changing the environment.)
