Michael Crichton on Charlie Rose

Global warming denier Michael Crichton spent an hour with Charlie Rose the other night, laying out his flawed statistics and uber-conservative agenda. Oh yeah, they talked about his new book, too, something on genetic engineering.

He comes across as kind of nice, but I'm still not a fan of his stance on just about anything. I'm only posting this because I know there are many people out there who support Crichton, or are at least more generous than I am toward his position.

Hit the nail on the head. I like how they call them scientists and don't specify how many are climatologists. I think it's all about money. If they were to say that global warming was a natural cycle of climate change they wouldn't get any funding for studying the changes. I find it interesting that most of the climatologists i've heard on the subject that debunk the "sky is falling" mentality are all retired and don't need to stay in line for funding. In the 1300's Greenland had a farming culture. But not today, it's all snow and ice. Must have been from that big coming catastrophe they predicted in the 1970's called "global cooling"

Global it real? Sometimes I think it is and then most times I think not. It can be a bit confusing when you are watching the weather and "on this day in 1954, it was 85 degrees". That day was in January and it was pretty dang cold. Was the high weather then due to global warming, El Nino changing currents? How can they say its getting hotter when about 50 years ago it was hotter on that day than it is now?! When science gets to be where it doesn't need money to do its research (that'll never happen) then I'll start believing the facts.
