This is a joke, right?

In his black-and-white photography series “Scared Scientists,” Nick Bowers captures a raw element not often associated with scientific knowledge. For the series, Bowers interviewed a selection of scientists in varying fields, capturing the frightened looks on their faces while they contemplated their findings. The photos are minimalist but intense, each wrinkle and crease pointing to a human unease we can all connect with.

Bowers told The Huffington Post he hopes to convey “the humanity and vulnerability of the scientists” through his work. “That they are as individuals concerned by climate change, separate from the scientific realm.”

Need more convincing, deniers?

Those pictures were peer reviewed at the Hockey Stick division at the IPCC and have been certified 100 percent authentic looks of scientific concern.

For the record, they also got those same looks after hearing other alarming news:
