Saw one of the episodes of a Neil Degrasse Tyson show on National Geographic today. I didn't watch the whole thing but glanced at it as it was running in the background. The topic was.. you guessed it, climate change.

The issue of Sun came up. You know that yuge burning fireball that keeps our planet warm. And he pretty much said "we know it's not the Sun, it's the CO2".

Not a word on the of the solar cycles (the short 11-year one, or the longer 400 year one), or how the Sun's energy output is slowly growing over time.

The man has a PhD in astrophysics.

I watched an old documentary with Black Science Man from 12 years ago, and he was trying to invent a time machine to prevent his dad from niggerdeath.  :tuss:

Look up the young sun theory. It says that the earth had a shitload more of Greenhouse gasses than it did today and they protected the planet from keeping it warm since the sun was too underdeveloped in order to do the job.

FWIW, Carl Sagan, whom Degrasse Tyson takes up the mantle, was a world class shit-peddler, too; even to the point of being an unwitting Soviet disinformation pawn.

Do you have some examples of this? I'm sincerely curious. His writings and the Cosmos series seemed to be generally apolitical except for some fears about nuclear annihilation that were warranted at the time.

I think the earth was hot enough for life to form back then because of the volcanic activity.

The world class shit peddler remark was a bad joke (because he was an astrophysicist and he was stupid fascinated with dust storms on Mars) about Sagan from my college days. No, Sagan was the most visible proponent of nuclear winter back in the 1980s. The whole idea is based on shaky science that has roots in the Soviet Union and is alleged to have been a product of a KGB disinformation operation. The Sovs were scared shitless of Ronald Reagan and so sought to curb a possible nuclear conflict by supporting anti-nuke movements in the West, including introducing junk science like nuclear winter.

Mind you, and I would acknowledge the tinfoil hat part here, this comes from various accounts from Russian defectors.

But that aside, you’re right, he was pretty apolitical in his writings (Demon Haunted World besides), certainly more apolitical than Tyson.

Thanks, I was curious what the general line of reasoning was. Yeah, nuclear winter was A Thing for a few decades but we don't know would happen in a total nuclear exchange. Happily we probably won't ever know.

Still, he did speculate a lot outside of his field of expertise. I think he was generally pretty awesome at describing science to a lay person. Neil deGrasse Tyson is in a similar vein - popularizing science - but he seems more like a showman or huckster than Sagan. Maybe it's because Sagan had to go to the effort to publish his stuff and had editors and other folks (like his wife) who could read it before it went out. NdT tweets whatever dumbass thought comes into his head.


I'm still salty about the Cosmos II series. They had an opportunity to build on Sagan's outstanding series and used it as a platform to promote junk science, bash religion and act like pompous assholes.

Bill Nye's shitheap of a show was even worse.

It's pretty hard to make a show that will have broad appeal and be educational about science. Maybe that time has passed. There's just too many areas to focus on and you've got a million shows that cover different facets like "How Do They Do It?".

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYhCQv5tNsQ" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYhCQv5tNsQ</a>

This documentary is more than 10 years old, but it nicely covers all the basics. Even better, this kind of thing would have zero chance of being made in today's climate (no pun intended).
But I do often point out that I write both science fiction and fantasy. It’s just that the science fiction is usually titled ‘technical proposal’ and the fantasy is titled ‘budget proposal.’

You might be wondering, what exactly is the point of the global warming hoax — that is, the point of pretending that the weather getting slightly warmer is catastrophic, and that do gooder libshit governments can prevent the climate from continuing to fluctuate as it always has? Apparatchiks appointed by our nascent world government, the United Nations, thoughtfully provide the answer in a document ominously entitled, “Transformation: The Economy.”

From the report:

Quote
Strong political governance is required to accomplish the key transitions. Market-based action will not suffice – even with a high carbon price. There must be a comprehensive vision and closely coordinated plans. Otherwise, a rapid system-level transformation toward global sustainability goals is inconceivable.

Economic freedom at it's most basic will not suffice. Merely to cripple the standard of living worldwide with oppressive carbon taxes will not suffice. A an unelected central authority must control all things economic — like in the USSR, except on a global basis.

As the hippies used to say, the issue is never the issue; the issue is always the revolution.

Even before the global warming hoax, the "mainstream" media would hype weather events to the point of absurdity. Now that we are expected to believe that problematic weather is caused by capitalism and by people liberals don’t like, the weather report is as fake as anything else in the news. Watch and laugh as this Weather Channel reporter struggles to keep his footing in the ferocious Florence winds, while others casually stroll past in the background.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFh-X1bv4P0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFh-X1bv4P0</a>

The media personification of Clownworld, Brian Stelter, jumped to defend the honor of the Weather Channel fraudster and silence the rubes and doubters.


Similar theatrics from the reality-detached media have been seen before Florence. Here’s a classic, featuring disgraced NBC degenerate Matt Lauer.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgm3_jzcNm4" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgm3_jzcNm4</a>

This look behind the scenes of a weather report demonstrates how the mainstream media produces hurricane coverage.

Also fake is the frequently shouted talking point that hurricanes are stronger due to the climate trending warmer. This is conjecture, and may or may not be true.

There was someone in the SA climate thread who had studied it a bit and it was clear that there has been no measurable increase in hurricane activity or strength. They are just predicting that things will get much worse, based on... well, "evidence". As for now, everything is the same as it has ever been.
But I do often point out that I write both science fiction and fantasy. It’s just that the science fiction is usually titled ‘technical proposal’ and the fantasy is titled ‘budget proposal.’
