The worst. Episode. Ever.
I just watched the Penn and Teller's episode on global warming and it was bullshit. They didn't attack global warming or try to disprove it, they went out for Al Gore (not a scientist) and for those who use green guilt to make money. They had a weatherman with a diagram suggesting that it's the sun, but that contradicts observation. And they believe that the climate can handle 3% CO2 rise in a small amount of time, which is not a small rise, although the percent is low.

At least Penn admitted in the end that he doesn't know. Then why did he do the show without getting into the subject? He always tells others to do their homework.

I lol'd at the pun, whether it was intentional or not. Tongue

I am 100% certain that I am wrong about something I am certain about right now. Because even if everything I stand for turns out to be completely true, I was still wrong about being wrong.

When there's a show called ''bullshit'' on global warming, one can easily assume it to be mostly on global warming(like I did), so I pointed it out.
There wasn't arguments for human-caused global warming, but there were arguments against it, and they were pretty much left unhandled (just like the guy in the one episode who said that human-driven mass-extinction is complete baloney got away with it), so it seems that global warming was shown in a slightly (pseudo-)sceptical way.

50/50. By the way, there's a fell named ''Levi'', it's one of the most known and largest ski resorts in Finland.

Everything Penn & Teller talk about on "Bullshit", is Bullshit. Hence the name. Wink
