  •  Maya 2012! I have started making public lectures (7+ / 0-)

    to debunk all of the bullshit prophecies that are out there. It is my duty as a scientist, and we have been woefully bad at teaching the public.

    I realized this when I saw letters from young children into an astronomer that were just scary. All of these kids were so afraid that planet Niburu is going to crash into the Earth. I mean really scared, not able to sleep. It's just terrible, but I believe Nye is right, part of the blame is that scientists and professionals have begun to live in academic bubbles and stop interacting with the general public.
