Reminds me of an article I read a couple of weeks ago.

"Let's say there's some sort of environmental crisis," Schumer said. "Well, we could selectively thaw students who majored in ecology or climatology and provide them with jobs. The same logic would apply if, say, 300 years from now a real-world application for people with philosophy degrees somehow arose."

I particularly liked the illustration "Throughout cryogenic storage, graduates remain completely unaware that their technological skills are growing obsolete."

I'd have to disagree. I am fully aware that they are growing obsolete.

I hope the Atlantic's article is pessimistic, but I doubt it.

As for the Onion article, at least it is a potential solution.
