Watch This Physicist Try Desperately to Explain Climate Change to a Politician Who Denies It

Having Professor Brian Cox explain the human element of climate change to Malcolm Roberts, a science-denying newly elected senator from Australia, is an exercise in futility. Yet, Cox did his best to explain the evidence to a man who refuses to accept any of it during an exchange on the ABC show Q&A:

There are some links you post that I can't get. NBC (National Broadcasting Corporation) was the first station in the U.S. to broadcast in color.

The program was Bear walking with President Obama showing glacial melt.

On lint,

Language differes from place to place.

Spelling? Getting the point across should be what matters without contempt. Indeed what counts is power.

Getting some high winds on the West Coast of the U.S., Canada, and Alaska.

CLIMATE & ENERGY

“Climate change” vs. “global warming”? It really doesn’t matter

Quit with the linguistic navel-gazing. What actually counts is power. (As explained in a dozen tweets.)

According to the AAA, the average person spends $9,641 per year for...

$9K would provide a lot of public transportation.

This graph, based on the comparison of atmospheric samples contained in ice cores and more recent direct measurements, provides evidence that atmospheric CO2 has increased since the Industrial Revolution.

New York Attorney General Launches Investigation Into ExxonMobil

Will Kamala Harris (Attorney General in California U.S.) take this on as well?

This is nothing new. It was known that CO2 adversly effected the environment since  1883?.

Petroleum and Coal companies should be "Mobile" and shift to non polluting energy.

Is it possible? 

The diesel engine polution fraud and key defect problem with automobiles demonstrates that unfeaddered  capitalism can run rampant.

It's So Hot in Australia That They Added New Colors to the Weather Map

Image Australia Bureau of Meteorology

See that deep purple in the middle of this acne-red weather report from Down Under? That right there represents 129.2° F or 54 °C — it's a brand-new shade that the Australian bureau of meteorology was forced to add to its heat index because their country is, you know, kind of on fire. "The scale has just been increased today and I would anticipate it is because the forecast coming from the bureau's model is showing temperatures in excess of 50 degrees," David Jones, head of the bureau's climate monitoring and prediction unit, told The Sydney Morning Herald, which notes that the previous record high was 50.7°C  (123°F), recorded in 1960 at Oodnadatta Airport in the southern part of Australia — right around where the new shades of hot are showing up today.

To give you an idea of just how uncomfortable this Australian heatwave really is, consider that it's just past midnight there right now ... and it's 95°F in Sydney. Doubly scary are the giant fire risks that come with the heat — risks so severe Australian officials are taking no chances and labeling the warning "catastrophic." "A 'catastrophic' warning carries the risk of significant loss of life and the destruction of many homes, according to the NSW Rural Fire Service," reports CNN.
