Description from store This extension replaces fossil fuel related terms with absurdity and commentary inspired by speculative fiction. Science fiction and fantasy have been effective vehicles of social commentary since their beginning. The distance provided by these stories helps to return strangeness to what has become ordinary. This plugin leverages terms from the milieu of speculative fiction in order to bring absurdity, commentary, humor, strangeness, and disbelief to the current state of our fossil fuel economy.

  • (2016-01-24) John Lyell: This is great! It really makes you think about the euphemisms we've become unconsciously accustomed in the debate on environmental issues, and helps you take a step back and assess articles and different arguments through humor.
  • (2016-01-22) Alyssum Pohl: I keep cracking up at this. As someone who works in the environmental realm, it's nice to see a fresh and humorous take on issues that often just elicit stress.
  • (2016-01-16) super funny.
  • (2016-01-15) Alix Kashdan: This extension is both really fun and on point - makes you think about environmental issues in a new way.
