Double thumbs up! Neil deGrasse Tyson's storytelling is amazing. I loved his recent Cosmos tv series

Sorry folks, I used to be a fan until he showed that he's not as smart as he thinks when he weighed in (for no real reason) on the NFL's 'deflategate' scandal and was proven wrong.
Turns out he's just an attention whore in love with his own voice. Truth be damned as long as someone's worshiping me!

#5 unlike many others, he admitted his mistake and corrected it :)

#6 For someone who is a 'Superstar' as #2 puts it, that is an inexcusable error because of the publicity his original comment got and the weight of his accusation. An accusation that he ignorantly doubled down on in his 'retraction', " A delightfully moot point since neither temperature absolves the NE Patriots."
How was he even able to do the calculations and reach a conclusion when the amount of pressure under regulation that the balls were was not released at the time, only speculated on. Since then it has been reported that only one ball was significantly under, the rest were a 'tick' under. So where's the retraction of his retraction?
His ignorant accusation gave weight to the tin foil hat accusations in the media. That's irresponsible. Just as irresponsible as Bill Nye.
So when will he also retract his also dis proven statements on climate change?

#7 climate change? you are trying to say: "i'm cold, so there is no such thing as global warming", and since you had a lunch, you just solved the world hunger, congratulations, there are no more problems left on this planet, you solved them all

Um, actually, I'm glad you asked. According to Neil, Bill Nye, Phil Jones, Paul Nurse and other climatologists at NASA and other places (I'm going to paraphrase) the earth has been warmer in the past and it has been colder in the past. That's not the issue. The only thing that concerns them is the pace of the change. The fact that it's happening so quickly.
However, scientists doing research into blue holes in the Caribbean found a few years ago that over the past 80,000 years the earth has gone through several events of significant climate change. At least one of which was in as little as 50 years. The indicators that preceded those events are happening today.
We didn't cause those previous events and we are not causing this. Not unless you are some James Bond super villain with a super weather changing machine on a secluded island out in the middle of the ocean........

#9 there is no doubt that there are natural cycles of climate changes, what is an issue here is disbelieve that we are speeding up the process ( by green house gasses emission )...
search for "a grave threat" ( national geographic ), and look what happened with lead mass poisoning during '60. and how scientist paid by big corporation covered this by serving public with false information
the same is happening with climate changes, but unlike "a grave treat" this is a lot more dangerous and irreversible, in fact there are some who believe we are already passed the point of no return

Of the 1% of scientists who believe the earth is getting warmer ( 1/3 of a degree over 30 plus years) 97% of them believe man is causing it.
The sun's solar cycles are the main factor in our warming/cooling cycles.
We haven’t seen any global warming for 17 years.

#11 it was the same with Tetraethyl lead, 97% of scientist ( paid by big oil corporation ) where saying that lead is not dangerous because it's naturally occurring element and it is not causing any health related issues
people are dumb, but as man said 3:24 "clear heads will always prevail"

#12 But in this case it is the scientists who are on the government's payroll and receiving grant money to keep up the scam that are the hoax purveyors.

#13 really? and as you said in one of our previous conversations, your government ALWAYS know what is best for you, no money, lobbying, corruption of any kind involved?
"we haven’t seen any global warming for 17 years." are you serious?
i have science magazines from '70. - '80. that are describing this exact scenario of global warming, weather going wild all over the planet, slowing down of currents ( both sea and air ) that causes hot and cold air to stay above certain areas longer than usual causing droughts or severe snow storms...
but you didn't see any of these?

#11 I dont care what made up number of scientists believes in global warming. For me it is enough to know that nearly all climatologists agree it is happening and linked to the increase of CO2 in our atmosphere. You should look up a peer reviewed scientific journal some time instead on relying on right-wing newsblogs.

co2 only makes up 0.04% of our atmosphere and is vital to the health of every plant and tree on the planet.
Water vapor has far more of a "greenhouse gas" effect on the earth than co2 and water vapor percentages
are determined by solar activity. How are you going to regulate that?
Picture of dushan56 achievements

+1 18. dushan commented 9 years ago

#17 you are completely right,
1. we are not disturbing fragile balance of green house gasses by increased co2 emissions in any way, and the fact that we are adding more co2 than system can absorb, has absolutely nothing to do with global warming ( i mean it's not like more than 80% of green house gases are produced by human activity, right? )
2. scientist who predicted weather changes we are experiencing today in '70. where ignorant dumbasses
3. global temperature is not on a rise and we are not "the boiling frog" ( so no ultra hot summers and severe winters, or no snow at all in some "4 season areas", no excessive rains or droughts, business as usual )
4. polar ice is not melting, and who cares about polar ice anyway ( it's not like polar ice has important role in regulating the temperature on earth )
5. weather didn't go wild all over the world, tornadoes, hurricanes, and typhoons are not stronger every year, snow in middle east deserts in 2014. was a hoax by muslims who want to destroy american way of life, and f#!@*&$ tornado touch down in serbia ( which never happened in recorded weather history of the country ) was just a product of really good weed i had that day...

#18 Maybe you did not see the news that the Arctic ice nearly doubled from 2012 to 2013 .NASA satellite imagery showed it clearly. I think the Polar bears are safe. Also because the ice extended further out to sea the bears were having to travel further to find pack ice which is where they hunt for seal and walrus.
We are spending trillions trying to control mother nature. It makes no difference or sense.
Picture of dushan56 achievements

#19 you mean ( from 2013 ):
"Still, the extent of the Arctic sea was the sixth lowest ever recorded. Compared to the 1981-2010 average, this summer's sea ice minimum -- a reflection of the maximum ice melting in the warm season -- was 432,000 square miles (1.12 million square kilometers) lower than the average, according to data presented by the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center at the University of Colorado in Boulder."

that being said, you are not seeing any fact that doesn't fit what you believe :) even that info ( 50% increase is misinterpreted )

i'm not worried about polar bears, they will adopt, i'm not worried about the planet, planet will also be fine, but we ( human beings ), we are screwed

#20 Gee that article is nice. If you had checked further (by even one month), you'd have found that NASA, NOAA, and other related agencies released very different reports last year. (I'll let you look them up for yourself)
October's rate of growth for arctic ice was faster than any month on record and the overall arctic ice cover, while a little low, was not out of the average. (and still way above the zero ice that Al Gore told us we would have by 2014 in a speech in 2007)
The antarctic ice cover last year was the largest on record.
The tropical oceans are cooler than scientists thought.
The planet has not 'warmed' in 15 years. Temperatures have plateaued in what scientists call a 'warming hiatus'. The last one lasted 70 years.

#21 al "who"?
how about covering your misinterpretations with some real science sources, from actual scientists? :)
please note, no michele bachmann or sarah palin quotes and science data interpretations

while we are on al "who", let's take a moment of silence for irena sendler

"the goal of environmental activism is not to save the world from terrifying environmental calamity, but to end capitalism" :D
this is the best joke i've heard in days, thanks mate :D

by the way, did you know that the eagle can't fly with only right wing? :D

Christiana Figueres is the executive secretary of the United Nation’s Framework Convention on Climate Change and she is definitely a left-wing liberal.
Changing the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years ? The only economic model in the last 150 years that has ever worked at all, is capitalism.

And as far as "real" climate scientists who disagree with claims of anthropogenic warming ,
here are a few for you ,and there are thousands more.
