Fox News Confused, Baffled By The Moon


mediamatters.org

Yesterday, Fox News anchor Jon Scott invited Bill Nye ("The Science Guy") to talk about newly discovered volcanism on the moon. Scott, for reasons that aren't entirely clear, asked if the existence of a volcano on the moon somehow casts doubt on climate change science: "It's not like we've been up there burning fossil fuels." Nye, clearly taken by surprise, patiently and slowly explained to Scott that, no, volcanoes have nothing to do with fossil fuels:

I am really stumped now, i could have sworn i read that he died about 1 month/2 month ago. I know there are many "XYZ is dead" internet hoaxes around all the time - but i really remember reading this on some mainstream news site.

What I find rather amusing by journalists is the way they type or rather put words together... I'm sure some don't take the time to re-read their stuff before posting. If you follow the first link then click on the text within the 3rd paragraph it takes you to Time's website that talks about the Volcano on the moon's far side where none should be... but the very first sentence is a bit awkward.

Awkward Sentence: Source

Human beings have been staring at the moon since long before we were human beings at all.

As far as I can tell human beings have been human beings since a human was a human... right?

Not that I support any particular news network, but Fox News wasn't the one baffled by the moon. In the article, I read that Jon Scott, who happens to be employed by Fox News, was baffled.

And the same people who wrote the article, wrote the headline. Not me.

Not the first time, nor the last that news-reporters (note I did NOT say journalists
) have flunked science.

Remember during the big tsunami scare when CNN didn't know where Hawaii was?

But trying to classify CO2 as a pollutant is lunacy, it's a needed component to life,


So is salt, ever tried eating a bowl of it?

Another strawman heard from.

Do you understand how little of the atmosphere is CO2?

Or how little of that CO2 is manmade?

Educate yourself, stop having it spoonfed to you by the establishment.




None of that matters. The question you should be asking is "what are the effects on the environment of increasing the amount of human-generated CO2"

AGW has it right in context,

Without the greenhouse effect we do not exist at our level.

global warming is mans arrogrance to think he has anywhere near the power of mother nature

climate change is a fact

the difference is the politlical ideology that latched on to bad science to push a political agenda that will do nothing but destroy trillion dollar industries and take decades to replace and take trillions more to make products that cant be made any other way with the caviat all those jobs lost will never be here or ever come back they will be outsourced to cheaper place in the rest of the world.

what man thinks he knows and what he really knows is a misnomer this earth has been around for billions of years and man has only been here for a blink of an eye mans knowledge isnt anywhere near what he thinks it is.

to the op its a given people arent that smart as they think they are and i attribute that to government throwing billions of dollars that produce less than stellar results.

doesnt matter what station it is anyone on "tv" these days well all i can say what do you expect?

they dont get paid for being rocket scientists

HAS Fox News ANY credibility left? Did it have any to begin with? Does Rupert Murdoch even care about factual newscasts at all?

So many questions - so few answers...

Wow!! Almost word for word you just reiterated the Oil Industries tired and totally un-scientific argument! Either you bought into their BS, or you get your paycheck from them.
This 'Global Warming Is Bunk" argument has been dead in the water almost since the day the Oil Industry dreamed it all up...

He's a skeptic on anything that hasn't been proven. He is a SCIENtist.

Fox News is really starting to wane a little bit on the science coverage in general. I think it proves what Fox News is really focused on which is political coverage. In turn, it politicizes themselves and their own views and the science is just an added "What the hay" kind of add-on when they really have no idea what they're talking about.

All they really do is post up stories published by other websites and news agencies and change the name of the story slightly.

If you really want decent science news, I recommend www.livescience.com .

Like half of Fox News science stories that are even remotely interesting are from that site.

Also, Bill Nye is a really smart guy but sort of a closed-minded drone when it comes to possibility of alien life and other unexplained phenomenon. That is exactly why they devert to him on science related content.

Have you actually seen the Larry King Live special in which Bill Nye basically makes a complete &#^ out of himself?

If that's the smartest we've got, that's pretty sad.
