Bob Lutz gets a lesson in climate change, science from Neil deGrasse Tyson

“You’re in the bubble, Bob, you’re in the bubble.”

This was host Bill Maher’s response to Bob Lutz’s claim on Real Time this past weekend that there is no overwhelming scientific consensus that climate change is happening. Lutz, a former General Motors chairman and not a believer in global warming, defended his point of view, even when scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson patiently explained that there are, indeed, scientific agreement and observable real-world signs that the world is getting warmer. He also explained that science rests upon consensus, but it’s a consensus of experiments, not opinions. Lutz responded that he’s heard for decades that the oceans will someday warm and rise, but he bought a home in the Florida Keys anyway. Then Tyson made a prediction of his own:

You take all the scientists who author these papers, get them to pool their money and invest in companies that would benefit from global warming. And take all the people who are in denial of global warming, take all their money and invest in companies that would presume there is no global warming. And I would predict, if you want a prediction, that you will all go broke in the next 50 years.

Lutz’s reply? “I will predict exactly the opposite.” See for yourself in the video after the jump.

About James Crist

How do we stop America's decline? The country is in trouble and we can all feel it. Where did we go wrong? How do we fix it? We now have an auction-based government, for sale to the highest bidder. Politicians have become nothing more than corporate whores and pawns for the rich. If we want our representatives to represent us, let them get their campaign money from us, their constituents. We have to amend the constitution to get the big money out of politics.
