Bill Nye’s unscientific tirade on abortion [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2015-09-28 23:55:07 by redleghunter

In a new viral video starring Bill Nye, the famed "Science Guy" declares that laws protecting "unborn people" are "based on ignorance" and reflect a "a deep scientific lack of understanding." He also says that if you support such laws, you "literally or apparently literally don't know what you’re talking about." Nye's video was released during an ongoing battle in Congress over sending taxpayers' money to Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider. Several large media outlets have glowingly covered the video, including the Washington Post, Newsweek, and the Huffington Post. Nye's central argument is ...

Some people love flying and some people hate it, but no matter how you feel about being thousands of feet in the air, there’s no denying that just being able to travel by air is a miracle of technology. Even though most of us are perfectly content with being able to travel across the country in a matter of hours, there are some planes that can travel far faster than the commercial aircraft most people are accustomed to. Mankind has seen some crazy things flying in the sky before, such as this UFO that appeared right next to this Virgin Airlines plane. But the coolest thing about some of the world’s speediest planes is that we know for a fact that human beings were able to create ...

A zero-emissions refuelling station for hydrogen-powered cars - claimed to be the first of its kind in the country - has opened. ITM Power created the site at the Advanced Manufacturing Park near the M1 in Rotherham. It uses electricity generated by a wind turbine to split water into its constituent parts: hydrogen and oxygen. A hydrogen car could now fill up with enough fuel for it to reach London from South Yorkshire, the company said. Rebecca Markillie, of Sheffield based ITM, said: "It's the perfect solution. It's a clean fuel utilising wind power, we start with water and end with water". A hydrogen-powered car only emits water vapour as it runs... More: ...

TOKYO—Like Olympic villages of past years, Tokyo’s version in 2020 will feature new buildings to house athletes and buses to ferry people to competition venues. But if Tokyo’s governor has his way, it will all be powered by a new energy source: hydrogen. Tokyo Gov. Yoichi Masuzoe “The first Tokyo Olympics, 50 years ago, left a bullet-train system as a legacy. I want to leave a hydrogen society as a legacy for the next Tokyo Olympics,” Gov. Yoichi Masuzoe said in an interview. Tokyo has said it plans to spend 40 billion yen ($330 million) through 2020 to encourage the development of technologies based on hydrogen, a gas capable of producing energy without ...

I've heard stupid before. But this pretty-much takes the cake. Describing Mars as "a fixer upper of a planet," Musk noted that the main problem with our red neighbor is that it's too cold for inhabitation. But, he noted, it can be made to more closely resemble Earth if we just warm it up. "There's the fast way and the slow way," Musk said, with the slow way being the gradual release of greenhouse gasses, which are famous on Earth for causing global warming and climate change. There's dumb and then there's really dumb. This falls into the second category. Mars lacks an atmosphere of material density because it was stripped off by the solar wind. ...

Nye Judged by the huge strides that people all over the world have made in overcoming poverty and want, it is only a slight exaggeration to say that little of economic consequence happened before the last three centuries. Before that, most of the world not only took poverty for granted, but also assumed that little could be done about it. Even the most optimistic early writers could not imagine that more than a few percent of the population would ever be well off; they thought that the best we could do for the masses would be to minimize their suffering on Earth. ...

The researchers detected neutrinos in Earth's mantle using the Borexino detector buried under a mountain at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy. Using giant vats of organic liquid buried under a mountain in Italy, scientists have shed new light on the origins of ghostly particles known as neutrinos generated by the Earth. This research could yield insights into what radioactive elements lie deep inside the Earth and how they influence the churning of the Earth's innards, researchers added. Neutrinos are subatomic particles generated by nuclear reactions and the radioactive decay of unstable atoms. They are vanishingly tiny — 500,000 times lighter than the ...

The colouring shows how they tile the plane when arranged in identical groups of three.In the world of mathematical tiling, news doesn’t come bigger than this. In the world of bathroom tiling – I bet they’re interested too.

Panasonic moves closer to home energy self-sufficiency with fuel cells Asahi Shimbun August 02, 2015 Panasonic Corp. said it has developed a catalyst that uses sunlight efficiently to extract hydrogen from water, a technology that could lead to energy self-sufficiency in homes powered by fuel cells. The company said it tested photocatalysts consisting of niobium nitride that can absorb 57 percent of sunlight, a rate far more efficient than the titanium oxide photocatalysts used today that absorb only ultraviolet rays, which constitute 4 percent of sunlight. Using this catalyst, Panasonic plans to develop products, such as panels similar to solar cells, for installation on rooftops. ...

Lab experiments suggest that a strange synchronization of pendulum clocks observed in the 1600s can be chalked up to acoustic energy Christiaan Huygens was a busy scholar. Among his many achievements, the Dutch scientist figured out the shape of Saturn's rings and discovered that planet's largest moon, Titan. He founded the theory that light travels as a wave, and he invented the pendulum clock. Huygens, it seems, couldn't even turn off his scientific mind when he was under the weather. In 1665 he was ill and stuck in bed, watching two pendulum clocks that were attached to a beam in his house. He noticed the pendulums started to swing in time with each other, no matter ...
