The following program might be considered politically biased because it is almost entirely science based…
We have not taken time to include the “other side” of the arguments.
We will often refer to the world as round knowing full well that there is still a robust argument
amongst a few individuals somewhere around the world,
who have a different view of how the universe works.
We will talk as if global warming is real and man made and getting worse,
despite the politicians with ties to the fossil fuel industry not being convinced.
We will talk about extinct life forms, ancient DNA, and evolution
without explaining that most of the world still entertains cartoonish children’s stories as its origin.
And we will talk about the very real threat from a pandemic virus…
We will not allow anyone here to call it a hoax.
Not when there is now 1 American death every 80 seconds from covid-19.
Wear a mask…
Wash your hands…
Stay home…
or better yet
Head for the hills, and don’t ever plan on coming back…
What ever you decide
Remember that if we all took the drastic step of doing nothing together
For just three weeks,
We would be done with it.
Instead, we are just beginning another episode of
This Week in Science,
Coming Up Next…
Let’s start with some quick science news stories…
Martian Ice Sheets
