Neil DeGrasse Tyson is sick of the anti-science sentiment in America. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/join
"Famed astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson took aim in a tweet at climate change deniers for believing predictions about Hurricane Harvey while rejecting the scientific consensus about global warming.
“Hmm. Don’t see much denial of @NOAA climate scientists who have predicted Hurricane Harvey’s devastating path into Texas,” he wrote on Twitter Friday.
“What I should have said was NOAA ‘scientists,’ rather than ‘NOAA climate scientists,’” he told TMZ Tuesday. “The point is that we have people in denial of emergent scientific consensus. That was the real point of the tweet.”
The astrophysicist went on to say it was not necessarily that the hurricane was caused by climate change – but that people accepted scientific predictions about the storm. If the public accepts predictions about a hurricane, Tyson explained, why does it not fully accept a consensus about climate change?”*

if you idiots cant see the geoengineering being done and global warming if it is man made theen the governmet men created it.chemtrails are real because i see them everyday i test the water and air.the levels of metals are high.listening to the actors rlike hawkins and tyson are really bad actors.i used my own rader and it never showed the weather channels.tyson is a hoax like all the rest of them nasa iss and soace travel have you ever watched 1 iss live feed? its a jo k e
"Waaahhh!!! The science is just too complicated!!!" Step one: take a tube and put an infra-red light at one end and an infra-red camera at the other. Step two: video the bright pretty light. Step three: fill the tube with CO2 and watch the light magically disappear! Real complicated!
ASS WIPE/DONALD TRUMP, SAYS THAT AMERICA'S SECURITY IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE TO HIM. HOW COULD THAT BE WHEN HE LIES ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING. GLOBAL WARMING IS A THREAT TO OUR COUNTRY IN MANY WAYS. WHEN WE SPEND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS CLEANING UP FLORIDA AND TEXAS, THERE IS LESS MONEY FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE. IN FACT THERE WILL BE LESS MONEY FOR A LOT OF OTHER THINGS. HE STATES THAT GOING GREEN IS BAD FOR BUISINESS. THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT GOING GREEN HAS AND WILL CONTINUE TO CREATE MILLIONS OF JOBS. DESPITE THE LIE HE TOLD THE MINERS, COAL IS DEAD. I WORK FOR A POWER COMPANY, AND WE ARE CONVERTING OUR POWER PLANTS TO USE NATURAL GAS. WE ARE ALSO INVESTING IN WIND AND SOLAR FARMS. HE IS EITHER STUPID, A LIER, OR BOTH WHEN IT COMES TO GLOBAL WARMING. TAKE OFF THE BLINDERS DT, AND YOU WILL SEE THAT CLIMATE CHANGE IS ANOTHER ENEMY THAT WE ARE FACING. WE NEED TO FIGHT THAT ENEMY AGRESSIVELY.
That's like saying if a news source tells you something you believe that you must believe everything they say.
Humans are affecting the climate.
Doesn't mean agree with everything, because you agree on other things.
Because a hurricane that happens during hurricane season where they've occurred before ...
... means that _global warming_ -- now called _climate change_ for more generality in terms because the previous hypothesis proved a failure, does exist? Then where is the data supporting such?
Anybody that questions the "consensus" is considered a "denier". Look at Chunk's argument: They were right about the path of the hurricane, therefore they are right about climate change. For all you "educated" people out there, tell me what the fallacy is. Nobody denies that the climate is changing. There are very intelligent people that question this so-called "consensus". But you label them "climate deniers" and dismiss their arguments, which is another fallacy. So set on critical thinking, yet use fallacious reasoning yourselves. AND they have been incorrect about the path of Irma several times now and were incorrect about the path of Harvey several times. Their models can't even predict what a hurricane is going to do after 2/3 days. So, how are their models going to predict what will happen 100 years from now? Tell me, please. OR just label me a "denier" and dismiss my argument because you are incapable of critical thinking. Science is becoming the new religion. That is the only danger to mankind, devolving into worshipping icons instead of thinking for oneself.
I have no problem with science and I'm totally on board with Neil with Climate Change. But otherwise he is one of the most extremist neo-atheists, whos claims about history are often completely fake (when it comes to the exact story about Gallileo or Giurdio Bruno), or are complete nihilists against ALL social sciences.
*Which is very ironic, because it is exactly the lack of knowledge about history, the lack of philosophy of ethics, the lack of a broader understanding of psychology, sociology and politics WHICH IS THE VERY CAUSE FOR CLIMATE CHANGE DENIAL!*
Volcanic gasses are a massive contributer, Underwater Volcanos cycle in weeks, islands form, water displacement, WE know more about space than we know about our OCEANS. Is it so hard to believe that we can't see the big picture, that maybe it might have more natural factors?
+VeryEvilPettingZoo lol yeah I asked that before looking into it more.
Gerckal (1991) Did too little research, never tested submarine volcanos only hydrothermal springs. Also, CO2 Is indistinguishable and claiming it retains infrared radiation is hypothesis. Vapor would be the first to heat.
Besides, we're the imagination of ourselves. Peace!
I am a bit disappointed that such a limelight scientist makes the sad mistake of confusing "weather" and "climate." All of the weakly educated people who like to pretend they are incredibly smart simply because they believe in climate change are excusable, but this kind of talk is what gives deniers more ammo. Remember, it was "climate change" that was said to cause an incredible increase in hurricanes after Katrina, followed by one of the quietest hurricanes decades in history. Trying to capitalize on weather-related tragedies does not help the case since the flip side is when weather events do not happen, you cannot discount deniers. Can't eat your cake and have it, too
it's the exact same phenomena when the Creationists will happily accept the diagnosis of Diabetes from their doctor, and thank the doctor for his deep of education and training......then turn around and give comments like "those scientists are just TOO smart"...or "they don't really know anything at all", when confronted with the facts of Evolution......
It's notable the two groups (climate deniers and Creationists) have some significant overlaps in population....
So we're talking about picking and choosing now when it comes to science? Loads of progressives do the exact same thing when it comes to gender and race. A white supremacist takes a genetic test and it turns out that their not 100% white so they can't claim to be white. Yet when a boy 'identifies' as a girl they have the option to 'change' their gender?
And before anyone accuses me of being a conservative. I'd like to say that I'm a progressive on many issues. A progressive whose brain hasn't fallen out.
Re: "Loads of progressives do the exact same thing when it comes to gender and race"
No, I'm afraid that doesn't hold up. Gender identity issues are about social and psychological understandings, not biological science. And progressives are almost by definition not racists (at least not by open intent), so when progressives even bother to discuss biological science and race, it's invariably just to counter whatever "science" the racists are claiming (since racists are, currently and historically, fixated on trying to claim scientific justification for their bullshit).
Right-wingers are adept at picking and choosing what statements from true authorities to believe and what not to believe. Entirely based on what is CONVENIENT for them not to believe. Pro-tip to any non-expert in any field: be very wary of what you WANT to believe.
The MOST ironic thing about this whole situation is that MOST climate deniers live in the SOUTH ! Guess where all of the SUPER POWER hurricanes are going to go first !!! You can "choose" to have a religion and you "might" be going to heaven or hell eventually. BUT if you "choose" to deny science you WILL be going to one of those places MUCH quicker then you would like !!!
Science deniers can keep denying and WILL keep dying !!!
Oh I don't deny climate change at all.
I just have enough sense to know that buying an electric car is not going to prevent a hurricane from making landfall and stop it from flooding and destroying everything in its path.
Let me put this another way,no matter what you come up with to buy or over regulate to force us to either cut down or stop using and doing whatever it may be that you seemingly don't like,none of that stuff is going to prevent,stop or divert a natural disaster from happening because natural disasters and climate change has been going on here on Earth way before factories and automobiles were ever thought of.
So,after you get done making all kinds of electric stuff to use to replace all those other things that you want to get rid of and then over tax and over regulate everything that you don't like let me know when all that nonsense can prevent,stop or else divert any natural disasters.
Some people also deny evolution and thinks the Earth that only 6,000 years old. Plus Egypt somehow survive the Global Flood that does not appear in the rock record and yet the Asteroid impact that cause the dinosaur extinction is world wide 65 million of years ago. :) I think the rich want people to believe that stuff so that they will be easier to control.
Tell me, today Sep 4, 2017, exactly what the weather is going to be like on January 13, 2018, without errors and I'd start believing some of your narrative, until then everything you say is simply a hoax to keep your stupid jobs as alarmists idiots
If you want folks on board with climate change tell Al Gore and most Dems conservatives hate to stop talking about it. Have someone like Mattis convince Trump it's real - and Trump supporters fall in line. Seriously, Al Gore and other Dems are destroying the planet by opening their mouths.
IMO, the issue is the ol' "put your money where your mouth is". Gore and DiCraprio alone could donate close to a billion dollars and still live like kings, along with the all the millionaire elites who spout supposed sincere concern. Why campaign endlessly and resort to bully tactics of name-calling to bleed the middle and lower class tax payer to fund endless "research'? After all, if these "believers" truly believe in impending doom, why haven't they already donated most of their mass fortunes instead of using it to buy personal jets and mansions on beachfront property? Sounds like THEY are the true deniers out to scam others.
Pretend they're the biggest hypocrites the world has ever seen, and are out solely to "scam" everyone. (That's bullshit - and you know it - but let's just pretend that for now.) Okay... what changes? The science still says what it says. The scientific findings have no connection whatsoever with Gore or Dicaprio.
BTW; google Neil degrasse Tyson net worth. He's up to 2 million already. One million alone could do wonders erecting windmill power in some small towns,..why not? And why wasn't he in Houston getting a first hand account and giving a hand to the victims? (Isn't flooding usually the result of poor infrastructure? Perhaps engineers have more credibility.)
Funny thing is, actual climate centers accept that climate change had nothing to do with this. The cause of the extreme hurricane was caused by the slightly warmer temperature in Texas which led to it slowing down and causing mass destruction. Be careful how you use your last pawn left, cause the last "scientist" you had claimed gender was a spectrum. And well now people consider him a joke more than a scientist now.
NASA Goddard July 2017 hottest ever matched only by 2016. 3 years of this month after month not in the bell curve at all, right? oh, that's confirmation bias... I hope so... we were really blessed this year in SE Asia... rain... if the fire smoke and droughts return..... I don't know.. where do half a billion people, who live on $10 a day, escape to?
It's funny how these guys make fun of people that don't listen to the scientific consensus for climate change, but yet will totally not believe the same scientific consensus that says GMOs are safe. Yes, everybody has a political bias that clouds your view, how about you be as open to the facts as you claim to be?
Im blind omfg im blind help me sweet 8 oz baby jesus i didnt mean to see that which cant be named cause of the stupendous ego which is unmatched on earth!!! She would be a solid 7+ but her outlook n views on life n her big loud mouth brings her down to a weak 5-. So didnt mean to click these tools!!!!! GO CROWDER!!!! He does such a amazing cenk!!!! N no im not a bigot or anything else ya wanna label me as cause of what i think of you turds!!!
DeGrasse Tyson is right..."if you're in denial of global warming, you're in denial of objective scientific truths." Is this denial stance political, or religious, or maybe it's economic...or societal. I really don't give a rats ass...as all it really is...is IGNORANT. I've given up trying to convince the idiots in this world of anything. Anthropomorphic Climate Change...Evolution...Primordial B-mode Polarization Waves...Time Dilation...The Moon Landings...a Round Earth. The world is awash with idiots...we've even managed to elect one to be president. Humanity is special, but we are not above going extinct. Maybe we will blink out...or maybe we will find a solution in time and pull our asses out of the fire. Either way...we will always be plagued with idiots. People who think their personal opinions are just as valid a perspective as scientific consensus and verified facts.
Climate change, a goddamn "Chinese Hoax," really! Are this deniers really this ignorant!!!!? What the hell is on these stupid idiots' heads!? HUMANS CANNOT CONTROL THE WEATHER! Climate change does indeed exist. I live in St. Louis Missouri and I remember when I was young in late 1998 trough the early 2000s the days leading up to Halloween the landscape was already completely covered in snow. And now this last five years or so, it hasn't even snowed as much as it use to back then.
Trumpet , if this is an hoax why didn't we see the label "made in china" stapled on that hurricane ? Trumpet , you are a hurricane that is destroying the US for 4 years , no hundres of billions will let the US recover that easily from that 4 years hurricane.
The premise of this is absurd. So I must believe everything one group of Scientists say because of a Hurricane. I know a Meteorologist that can predict weather extremely accurately, but the same man believes that Global Warming is BS. This has no logic.
CLIMATE CULTISTS GET WORKED UP. NICE TO HAVE MONOLOGUES. BIZARRE THAT CLIMATE SCIENCE IS THE ONLY ONE OF ALL THE SCIENCES THAT WILL NOT DISCUSS OR DEBATE WHAT THEY PREACH. ALSO THE ONLY SCIENCE THAT MAKES CLAIMS WITHOUT HAVING TO SHOW THE RAW DATA INVOLVED IN IT'S EFFORTS. TAX PAYER PAID DATA. IF IT LOOKS LIKE A RED FLAG, WAVES IN A BREEZE LIKE A RED FLAG, TASTES LIKE A RED FLAG AND CRAPS OUT SOMEWHAT LOOKING LIKE A RED FLAG MIGHT HAVE ONCE LOOKED LIKE THEN IT MUST BE A RED POO FLAG. NO OTHER SCIENCE ACTS IN SUCH A MANNER. FOR ME, THE JURY IS OUT AS LONG IT TAKES THE JURY TO RETURN WITH THE RAW DATA. CAN SOMEONE CHECK THE BATHROOMS PLEASE ? TAKE SOME AIR FRESHENER. THEY HAVE BEEN HIDING IN THERE I'M SURE.
Record twelve-years since the last major hurricane hit the U.S. Sea-levels remain constant. If anything, the world has remarkable climate *STABILITY* and chicken-little climate "scientists" are in fact, Stability Deniers.
She forgot to say that N.O.A.A. made it clear that Har ey was not climate change. They also indicated that it has been almost 11 years since they have had a hurricane, because they have become LESS frequent Why didn't She mention this??? Very telling.
Of course, of course climate change is real. The fact is that most of us that you call climate deniers don't actually deny climate change. We just recognize the fact that there's a lack of evidence of man-made climate change to the extent that liberal politics tries to push. We see that we have had some effect, but it's not so severe that unless we take immediate action that the world as we know it would end. On the issue of sea levels, do I even have to mention Al Gore. What was it that his first movie stated... was it a 20 foot rise in ocean levels. Even climate scientists had to deny those statements.
Another fact to consider, a few degrees warmer would be exponentially better for our world then a few degrees colder. With a slightly warmer climate, huge areas of Canada and Russia that were previously non agricultural lands could finally be used for farming and other such needs.
Now I got a feeling that this is going to get me some hate mail, but I ask that you actually do some research before you attempt to try and rebuke me.
But here's the thing: some people define climate denial as the earth not warming. Others are deniers for not believing liberal propaganda about how dire the effects will be. Some are deniers simply because they don't think the government is in the best position to handle the problem. Also, nuclear is the only viable zero emissions source of power.
So many bitch about climate change. They point their fingers and expect SOMEONE ELSE to do something about it. But THEY do virtually NOTHING to reduce their OWN carbon footprint. They love their current lifestyles, their cars and their material comforts. They are just Liberal lemmings jumping on the bandwagon. Hypocrites.
OVERPOPULATION will be a MAJOR factor in Climate Change. The U.S. population is now 323 million. The Liberals want open borders and virtually unlimited immigration. So the U.S. population will grow even faster - by tens of millions. More energy consumption - more vehicles on the road - MORE POLLUTION. Is that what we want?
And NOAA just changed the global temperatures because they didn't know how to take the temp. The ocean levels are supposed to be rising. Levels are dropping.
Also your point about why would they not be lying about a hurricane coming. That is easy to answer. If they lied about a hurricane it would be known right away that they are lying. With global warming on the other hand they can just keep changing the time table. Like they have been doing for years.
You are right. Hurricane Harvey is intrinsically linked to how climate on our planet works. Unfortunately, we do not have a weather dominator yet, so we cannot terraform earth into a gaia world of our liking. As it stands, while Climate Change is a prime observation of a phenomenon affecting our seasonal cycles, there is so much more that our planet is suffering from that we simply cannot change. One such example is the salinization of our oceans; if our sea gets any more saltier, much of our marine life is going to have serious problems surviving those conditions. I would demand that LoL players stop dunking their heads in the sea, but there is so much more going on here than meets the eye.
That is the message that climate change deniers bring. Through ignorance of the subject matter and a suspension of disbelief, it can be established that a change in climate couldn't be as bad as what is being observed. This notion extends to how climate change denial is informed. A common theme I see in denial is linking the scientific face of climate change into politics, stating that it is a method of political control. As much as that sounds like a tin-hat conspiracy, the climate change deniers are right; Government reaction and usage of the environment is a political end. This is where climate change advocates are ignorant. Climate change as an observable effect on our planet is more than a 'scientific fact', it is also a political concept used under a government's whim. It doesn't matter how much a 'scientist' demands that climate change is a fact, if an administration sees it as an inconvenience they will suppress that 'fact' for their own ends.
This is why, ultimately, both climate change advocates and deniers are correct. Climate change is both a major, commonly observed environmental effect and an ideal that governments use for their own end against people. We must address both, and stand undivided on this issue. Climate change is real operational concept, and there are certain political entities that would like to use that fact against you. What we should be doing is discussing the entirety of the subject matter. Bring forward the concerns on how climate change as a concept is used as both a scientific understanding and a political end. We lose if we start ridiculing each other about this topic and ignoring obvious political moves attempting to get certain concessions for or against climate change.
Not that it matters in Trump's America, of course. The political move has already been made.
I predominantly incline more right wing, however, all these left wingers saying right wingers can't stand science and logic should really reconsider their whole stance on multiple genders. I am neutral in terms of the whole climate change debate, but I personally would like to improve our eco-friendly technology.
Do anyone remwmber when Neil Degrasse Tyson tweeted "If it hurts for a species to reproduce, that species would be extinct". You should always think critical of what people say even if that person is a national tressure.
