the Border between satire and reality is often very subtle.
It must be the Danish tv celebrity, author, cartoonist, and klimadebattør Anders Morgenthaler certainly true, after he has shared a post on his private Instagram profile.
Here, he has put two pictures up of the sea ice in the Arctic, that shows how much of that is melted within the last ten years in connection with the #10yearschallenge, which runs on the social media for the time being. Here, one must share a photo of yourself from today and ten years ago.
the Problem is just that the images are taken at different seasons of the year. Image from 2019, derived not even from this calendar year. In fact, the pictures taken with the 35-year intervals in, respectively, 1984 and 2016, it shows the original satellite images from NASA.
But it writes the comedian, who also is a well-known voice in the climate debate, nothing about in the advertisement, that is smoked out of his button to 50,000 followers on the social media.
'I'll throw this in for general amusement in the #10yearschallenge', is it just from Anders Morgenthaler.
And the likes simply do not believe Sebastian H. Mernild, professor of climate change, glaciolog and director at the Nansen centre in Bergen.
- If we scientists made it there, we were almost fired. It is a case of wrong communication of the science here. The pictures must be taken at the same time of the year, and if you aren't aware of it, can you tell the story you want to, but then there is the talk about fake news, if I may use that expression.
- If you look at photos from the winter of 2009 and look at the pictures from the winter of 2019, I would wager that they are very, very similar. It is winter and it is cold, so therefore there is not anything that can melt. It is so unfair that he chooses to use the pictures on the way, beats the professor fixed above for the Extra Magazine.

More than 3,000 people on both sides but Anders Morgenthalers lookups, and multiple reactions shows that not all have seen the 'fun' in the advertisement. Some have found it difficult to distinguish whether it is satire or facts, as the tv-the celebrity shared on Instagram.
Professor Sebastian H. Mernild, believe completely, you should keep away from sharing such lookups, if you do it this way.
- I would advise people to do it, precisely because it is subject to people's own evaluation and the message they want out, but it is not an objective assessment. You lose simply credibility. Here is more about misinformation and a lack of maps and good fairness in it. You must be extremely careful with such things.
the Extra Leaf has subsequently been in contact with Anders Morgenthaler. He explains that he on Thursday night gave himself to look at her lookup with other eyes.
- the Lookup was meant as satire in the context of this thing, running on the social media for the time being. I have sat me down and looked at the pictures, and I can see that they do not stick together. The images are from NASA, and where they fall to the ground, is, of course, because the images are taken with far more years.
The 46-year-old comedian can see the problem in that he divides satire about climate change, when at the same time he is a well-known klimadebattør.
- you call to me, and confronts me with it here, me of course to think about my role. I had not thought so much about it, since I made the ad, but just meant it as satire, and it's also meant as a symbol of climate change. Much of the ice has melted in the past 40 years. I will continue to put the satire up, but I will think about whether it is clear enough that this is just satire.
- There must be a balance between the two roles, he stresses to Ekstra Bladet.
Anders Morgenthaler explains in conclusion, that he will correct his posting.
- I should have written that it was meant as satire, but it is a bit like a comedian explaining his own jokes. But I will go in and correct the lookup so it appears more clearly.
Subsequently, the advertisement has been targeted on Instagram.
