In which case why worry about it? As Keynes said, “In the long run we’re all dead anyway”

Another one of these global warming know-it-alls like Michio Kaku-Kukka.

We’ll survive if we can find what space age technology Cro Magnon man used to survive global warming.

Scientists seem to believe humanity survived the Toba eruption. Not sure why any other event would be different.

I’m OK with it as long as Neil deGrasse Tyson doesn’t survive either.

Of course, partly based on the “selfies”/company Tyson keeps.

funny, but true

Sanctimonious "scientists" remind me of this great quote...

...and disingenuous points from the “we got a bad ass over here” science “rockstar” who does not speak for other non-politicized/compromised scientists.

Neil is a liberal in many cases, but a very pragmatic dude. His Star Talk podcast is one of my favorites. He believes in global warming, in science and in the scientific method. Unfortunately (or fortunately as it may be to some of us) he also hangs somewhere on the libertarian Left, but I really love the guy and his promotion of science in practice.

Michio Kaku is a popular science ding-dong compared to Neil. I detest his screed as much as I do Brian Green. They are two of the popular TED style science weenies that bother me the most.

“Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts” —Richard Feynman

That sure sums up Global Warming research as do their proofs cited by “theoretical evidence” as to the existence of man made climate change.

Yes, they cite “theoretical evidence” an oxymoron by morons if I ever heard one.

It annoys me that a local conservative talk radio station carries Kaku's show.

His recent comments blaming the polar vortex on global warming were only the latest irritant.

That is a pretty head-spinning statement.
He "believes" in global warming (I'm making the presumption that he means the man-caused variety), yet he ignores all the data and science that contradicts the same...

The world has always survived and thrived on global warming, and it will continue to do so in the future, if that is what lies in store for us. A very long and harsh cooling cycle is an entirely different matter, one that will require large supplies of readily available energy, like coal, oil, natural gas, wood, all those horrible carbon sources the kooks dread. Without them, we could all die.

El Cid, Dog;
Yeah, I know how that statement feels too. Neil had a very interesting interview where he mentions that Republicans under George W. Bush spent much more on science than Democrats. He said he respects that, and disagrees with administrations that convolute their rhetoric. I do believe Neil is one of of us, but he feels that he still has to support the plantation mentality to keep his friends happy. He really is much more secure than wankers like Bill Nye, Michio Kaku and Brian Green, & etc...

Neil deGrasse Tyson just loves to bash us anti science inbred Christians. They had a big yuk over getting a show on that hillbilly FOX network.

No I’ll take Kaku any day of the week. He actually admits to believing in a God of some sort.

Neil, you're such a great scientist, please answer this; where is the hot spot in the upper atmosphere?

No smoking hot spot

1. The greenhouse signature is missing. We have been looking and measuring for years, and cannot find it.

Each possible cause of global warming has a different pattern of where in the planet the warming occurs first and the most. The signature of an increased greenhouse effect is a hot spot about 10km up in the atmosphere over the tropics. We have been measuring the atmosphere for decades using radiosondes: weather balloons with thermometers that radio back the temperature as the balloon ascends through the atmosphere. They show no hot spot. Whatsoever.

If there is no hot spot then an increased greenhouse effect is not the cause of global warming. So we know for sure that carbon emissions are not a significant cause of the global warming. If we had found the greenhouse signature then I would be an alarmist again.
