Max C Roser and 223 of his closest friends are Enemies of the Truth!
Like an arrow through the heart! Max Roser's tweet really kills. With his one tweet he spread false, misleading, and dangerous information to thousands — maybe tens of thousands — of people across the globe. 223 Retweets. 198 Favorites. Egads. What a disaster!
More reason The Debunker Club is needed. More reason for you to help debunk these myths!
Please, someone, please send me a tranquilizer…
And apologies to Max. I'm sure he's a fine human being. And of course he's not the only one who sends this bad information around (we have evidence that 223 others followed his lead), so I shouldn't really be focused on the poor lad….
But cripes! How do people get through the education system not knowing not to pass information around without at least a hint of skepticism, without checking sources, without taking a breath of oxygenated air…
Here's the evidence that this information is bogus: http://www.willatworklearning.com/2015/01/mythical-retention-data-the-corrupted-cone.html
