Is anybody watching the premier of Bill Nye's new show on Nat Geo. Right now he is taking global warming deniers to task in a hilarious way that is still accessible to the layman. Plus an Arnold Schwarzenegger cameo.
Human interests are nested. In any group large enough to be interesting, there are shitheads that everybody else wishes would just get lost. /sci/ has been interesting for awhile now, so we get posts from people like
What accelerates it is people who have no sense of identity themselves decide it'd be funny to pretend to be stupid, either not knowing or caring that making posts while pretending to be stupid promotes real stupidity.
If people were ever properly, permenantly banned for shitposting, 90% of them would say, "I shouldn't have been banned, I was shotposting *ironically."
Ironic shitposters should get ironically banned.
Ummm excuse me. Im allowed to like science too yaknow XP. I think its so cool how we are learning how to create faster than light travel!
I cant wait till we make real TARDISes :3
Im planning to study theoretical physics at college when I finish school ;3
Mr. Wizard lived pretty long too. So my n=2 study indicates that teaching science to young audiences extends one's lifespan.
More FORMAL education. Lots of people accomplish a great deal based on what they learn from experiences outside of the classroom.
>Starting in 1997/1998
El Nino was unusually strong in 1998 giving a skewed data set, if you go back to just 1995 you see a warming trend.
>The winter of 1997-1998 was marked by a record breaking El Nino event
That's what's always pissed me off about his followers. It is my understanding that he is famous for teaching kids about "science" and hes got the credentials to do so, but why would any grown ass human being with any sort of self respect idolize a random celebrity from a kid's science show with a bachelor's in mechanical engineering as a leading scientific figure, I've met people who have gone as far as to cite him on scientific matters, he doesn't have the credentials to do what he does, at least black science man has a PhD in his field, and if you think formal education doesn't matter in academia you're a fool. It perturbs me to think that people look to people like him and Michio Bukkake for answers.
>using only a few decades of data to compare of billions
>solid proof of 'global warming'
The Earth IS getting a bit warmer and CO2 emissions from humans slightly 'cause' it.
Volcanoes are the biggest factor in 'global climate'
"Global warming deniers" are typically rational people saying it's not a big deal
Do you even historical geology
I think it said that past calculations showing shrinking was basically false as well right? Because they didn't account for the thickness of the ice in large areas correctly or something or rather?
Pointing out that a single datapoint is unusually high, and shouldn't be used as a startpoint isn't "cherrypicking". Using that datapoint exclusively to deny a trend that's clear from any other startpoint IS.
The man who basically started the field of climatology does not believe in anthropomorphic causes for it. Don't get all your scientific facts from TV. The hoax is continually being disproven. Everyone should have realized this once it was evident from those stolen emails that bad science and data fixing was going on. That means its illegitimate.
But nooo Al Gore and Bill Nye are the most knowledgeable right?
If you go back 4,000 years you see a cooling trend.
Cherry picking: pointing to data which falsifies our "science"
Not Cherry picking: starting graphs of arctic sea ice levels at 1979 when there was a major maximum.
> Please ignore the El Nino!
Why don't you complain about the La Nina?
Doesn't matter, the temps are still flat if you start after the El Nino.
OK, by orders of Climate "Science" we'll ignore the El Nino.
Things are looking awfully flat.
