This is one of my favorite podcasts. If you visit the site, you’ll find a whole range of differents casts and RSS feeds for various science and engineering disaplines. These podcasts are actually live radio shows played on BBC Radio. They seem to be posted as podcasts a week or two after airing.
I sent them a question and they invited me on-air live to ask it. They phoned me from the UK this Sunday about 1pm est.. I listened to the show live on the phone for about 10 minutes until my spot came up. My question can be heard on the Christmas 2012 episode of The Naked Scientists.
What was the question? Having seen images of galaxy’s taken though telescopes, they all seem to have a bright center that is a significant portion of the galaxy. Do some planets in the bright center bathe in perpetual light independent of that planets own sun rise/set cycle?
The answer? You’ll just have to listen as I did. 😉
No serious consideration of global warming is complete with viewing this documentary. Many professors, a founder of Green Peace, weather specialits and forcasters. A former adviser to UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, BBC Broadcaster and other scientists.
Martin Durkin’s Great Global Warming Swindle:
After discussing with a college professor who was convinced “man caused” global warming was a real and present danger because another professor he asked said it was true and because of a movie. I took time watch his movie: Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth”. I was amazed at how convincing it was. You’ll find Inconvenient Truth is quite thoroughly debunked in the Great Global Warming Swindle above. Particularly the lie that increasing CO2 in the atmosphere preceded rise in temperatures when actually when temps increased CO2 increases lagged by approximately 800 years. A fraudulent attempt to deceive millions into believing the Global Warming hoax. I can see certainly see how many were duped into believing this nonsense. American’s don’t often take time to become students of important issues. They just accept the explanation that sounds best to them and move on. This sad and simple truth is the tendency that so many scams are built upon.

Since temperatures have been falling for years and so much of “Global Warming” and the IPCC report has been completely discredited, they want to change the name of the religion to “Climate Change”. A hoax is a hoax no mater the name.
