    Looking like science for kids alright.

    • lesliegraham1 Says:

      Er.. That’s because it’s a kids science programme.
      Either that or it’s for Americans.

      • dumboldguy Says:

        Easy on the snarky stuff, Leslie. At least we Americans know how to spell “program” without adding extra (and unneeded) letters. Your humour is unappreciated—-over here, the only things we “hum” are the tunes that commemorate “our” relationship with you folk—-like Yankee Doodle and Over There.

        • Sir Charles Says:

          A Brit would consider your spelling problem just as crippled English, dumboldguy.

          • dumboldguy Says:

            OUR spelling problem? LOL. And OUR English is”crippled”? LOL again!

            Our English has been mobile and agile enough to catapult the USA into the position of world leadership that the “Brits” used to occupy. Perhaps that explains this small display of “snarkiness” here?—-envy?

            And save your riposte to the effect that there is little to envy in the USA lately. I will concede that point.

    hmmm. Not sure this will add heft to the claims of real scientists. We don’t want to come off as the pro-and-anti-science camps competing on the same bogus media-soaked manipulative canvas. There’s a place for doing good science with engagement, and I think the likes of Richard Alley strike that balance about right. But maybe I worry too much. Maybe it’ll be good.

    The guy is a huckster who has made a living saying the PC version of science. Not a bad living. Since science is not in danger the claims about saving it are pure BS.

    I’m a big fan and monthly financial supporter of StarTalk Radio + StarTalk TV (both hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson) where Bill Nye is a regular contributor. I just watched TV program S3-E17 which included an interview with NOAA administrator Kathryn Sullivan. This was instructive because they talked about 1970 policy changes in the USA which were triggered by Americans seeing Earthrise from the moon during Apollo-8 during Christmas 1968. That is why both the EPA and NOAA were both created in 1970.

    p.s. Let’s not forget that Bill Nye is also CEO of the Planetary Society ( http://planetary.org/ ). How did he get his start including this job? By following the advice of Carl Sagan as to how best educate the public about science.

    That hack couldn’t even save AGW.
