In response to:

Asteroids, Polar Bear Cannibalism Lead to Global Warming, or, uh, Something Bad

This particular column so absolutely and clearly manipulates lazy people into believing (by unquestioning acceptance) complete and utter lies. For example: “Talk about something else that’s falling from the sky and that is an asteroid. What’s coming our way? Is this an effect of, perhaps, of global warming, or is this just some meteoric occasion?” CNN’s Deborah Feyerick asked Bill “The Science Guy” Nye, head of the Planetary Society, in a Saturday segment. The sad part is that it’s not just ditzy news anchors who propagate bad science, it’s bad scientists who propagate ditzy news. Ransom makes it sound like Nye agrees with the reporter - in truth he made the reporter look like an idiot for asking such a stupid question. Please don'

Odd, I watched the interchange, and Nye did no such thing. In fact, all he did was make some comment about meteorology and meteor sharing a common root. THAT sure let that woman know it was a stupid question. Good job, Bill!!

Congrats, ThreeStone. All you've managed to do is demonstrate your own utter incompetence. As anyone with at least a third grade reading level can see (perhaps that's why you missed it), Ransom DID NOT make it look like Nye agreed with the reporter. Instead, as is OBVIOUS, the "ditzy news anchor" was referenced in a conversation with Nye and the "bad scioentist" was in the NEXT EXAMPLE.

Please don;t believe anything ThreeStone posts without sometime in your life having passed basic reading. He misreads, mischaracterizes, he pretends that the voices in his head represent "the main body of intellectual knowledge" because reality generally disagrees with what he would like you to believe. What an obvous dolt!

Here we have a troll making up things and claims trying to cover up for an idiot reporter and this fellw "Nys" by crediting him for something that didn't happen.

Please don't believe anything John Ransom says without checking his sources. He conflates, he obfuscates, and even more important, he ignores the main body of intellectual knowledge, because it generally disagrees with what he would like you to believe. What a pompous demagog.

ANd Three Stone is a low life liberal brian dead troll that spews absolute nonsense from the load of chicken coop scrapings found between its ears.
Don't believe a word of all its lies, obfuscations, conflations and lack of sources. It IS ignorant of the main body of REAL intellectual knowledge and it desires to be the pompous demagog and windbag.
In truth its just a troll from under a bridge.

Well said! I agree. He is a demagogue.

The most pathetic part of the whole episode was that I knew that I would find it is soon as I saw the headlines and read the stories.

“A meteor streaked across the sky and exploded over central Russia on Friday,” reported Reuters, “sending fireballs crashing to earth which shattered windows and damaged buildings, injuring more than 500 people. People heading to work in Chelyabinsk heard what sounded like an explosion, saw a bright light and then felt a shockwave, according to a Reuters correspondent in the industrial city 950 miles east of Moscow.”
