Listener comments!

  6:07pm Ike:

Nice to hear David Lynch incorporated into the montage.
  6:24pm the glowing one:

I doubt that a pandemic will kill all humans, some will most probably survive
  6:25pm Eric:

Yes, there's huge gulf between mass death and full extinction
  6:29pm Eric:

Evolution is an excellent theory and is very useful for understanding biology BUT we have no way of knowing if there's much more to it that we can't even hope to understand with 100% of our brains.
  6:33pm Luna Ravenmoon:

Trees know all the secrets of the universe.
  6:34pm Joe:

What training does the guest have? Immunology? Climatology? Generalist? He lost my respect when he mentioned Iranian nukes. They would only deter an American attack.
  6:34pm Eric:

I would dare to say that not even God knows all the secrets of the universe ;)
  6:35pm seang:

all the more reason to live for today
  6:35pm dale:

curious if the author thinks one presidential candidate is better for the planet than the other.
  6:40pm the glowing one:

coal plants being built if nuclear plants get shut down? hmmm, not in Germany! the one they've planned they don't need because they've built enough renewable energy plants already. I think that endorsement of nuclear power is bogus.
  6:42pm Joe:

Stuxnet by definition of our own DOD was an act if war. What is good for the goose is not good for the gander. I will assume that the Israeli assassination program is also fine with you.
  6:43pm Caryn:

@the glowing one: depends on the country. In Sweden, the decision to shut down nuclear power plants lead to a massive growth in coal use. Germany is an example others should follow, but unfortunately that's not happening for now.
  6:47pm the glowing one:

it's a risk assessment we must do, currently the risk of creating nuclear waste is well understood... it never goes away.

there are over 100! nuclear power plants in the US, how many of them are far away and are safe?
  6:49pm Ken From Hyde Park:

A radio program I heard yesterday mentioned uranium mining in Virginia. It's currently banned, but some folks are trying to overturn the ban and start mining uranium there. There's a lot of risk having so much radioactive material in an area prone to rainstorms, occasional hurricanes and the rare earthquake.
  6:50pm Joe:

Stuxnet is cool! Is no excuse for international provocation with a peaceful signatory of the Non Proliferation Treaty. Iran was left no choice to expand its production of nuclerar materials to the twenty percent range until the US Embargo cut them off from nuclear medicine. Unintended consequences.

Again, what is your CV?
  6:50pm steve from SF:

The brief book Republican Brain by Chris Mooney delves into why conservatives often deny science (climate change, evolution,etc.), and also offers interesting counterexamples in "liberals" like vaccination hysteria, nuclear energy, and fracking. Worth a read.
  6:52pm Joe:

I am not anti vaccine. The flu shots just make me sick. Consistently.
  6:53pm Fredericks:

I'm with Steve on the Chris Mooney recommendation.
  6:54pm the glowing one:

@Joe: it's ironic how this administration's damnation of cyberwar attacks is ridiculed by the fact that it was this same administration which striked first.
  6:55pm Fredericks:

"Do as I say...." Glow
  6:58pm the glowing one:

I tried to watch the Revolution pilot, I didn't last 30 minutes, such bullshit, Walking Dead is more realistic
  6:58pm Mike East:

interesting show, Chris. Thanks.
  6:59pm Joe:

@glow And also the only "civilized" nation to use nukes.
Hey Chris. Thanks for the mainstream fear monger. I trust science. Not politicians.
