science, science, science. Al gore used a piece of styrofoam to represent a glacier in his stupid fake movie that made him

a LOT of money from silly people. And, the famous "tree ring" fraud. And the UN blackballing any scientist who didn't conform to the "man made global warming crisis". etc etc etc. Because they got their GRANTS from the UN etc.

Here, we have a scientist who just posted a remote pic of the closest star to the sun.

cool stuff. Imagine if it had proven something about fake "mmgw" !

Except, this scientist later admitted it was a joke. The pic was actually a piece of sausage.

So, yes, scientists can joke around, and scientists can fabricate "evidence" to get their funding again.

but it feeds the elistist "vote for liberal/leftwing causes" hysteria just fine.

Staff Writer April 17, 2018. Some time ago, I wrote a letter stating that over 30,000 scientists (by name) have said "catastrophic man-made global warming" is a complete hoax and science is a lie. I thought for sure that the Douglas County Global Warming Coalition would submit a rebuttal using the worn-out 'denier' word.

The global-warming hypothesis, however, is no longer tenable. Scientists have been able to test it carefully, and it does not hold up. During the past 50 years, as atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have risen, scientists have made precise measurements of atmospheric temperature. These measurements have definitively shown that major atmospheric

The closest star to Earth is called "Bernard".. It's approximately 4 light years away...

Sorry Nickers... But it's not... And I knew that one without even having to think.  It's Proxima Centauri, a dwarf star that's loosely gravitationally bound to Alpha Centauri A&B...

"Proxima Centauri is a small, low-mass star located 4.2465 light-years away from the Sun in the southern constellation of Centaurus. Its Latin name means the 'nearest [star] of Centaurus'. It was discovered in 1915 by Robert Innes and is the nearest-known star to the Sun."  

BTW, it's Barnard's Star, not Bernard's.  Typo? Only 4th closest, after the Alpha Centauri triplet.  It does have the distinction of having the highest proper motion (that's the apparent motion) across the sky of any star. A little trivia- because of proper motion, the Big Dipper won't look anything like the Big Dipper in a few million years. 

And another fun trivia about the scale of our galaxy. If you shrunk it down to where the Earth was a microscopic dot orbiting one inch away from our microscopic Sun...  Alpha Centauri would be four miles away.  Beam me up Scottie.. :)

Actually the Sun would be the closest star.

Gee, no kidding?  :D

It was known as the Closest at one time... I guess that has changed... I had heard this when I was an 11-12 year old kid... Hubble Telescope was just an idea... ... The Viking Landers were on its way.. And I believer the Voyager probes were already launched.. And don't ever be sorry... There's no crime in being wrong lol.. Except a couple of posters we know here would beg to differ....  But at that time Star Wars was becoming popular... I was just becoming a real space junkie.. After In Search of with Leonard Nimoy... And Chariots of the Gods with Erik Von Daniken I was completely hooked on Space... And the idea that Aliens or Extra Terrestrials visited Earth.. While I know some scoff at the idea... I remain open to the possibility... And yeah I had heard of Proxima Centauri.. The thing I find more interesting are the number of planets that are being discovered... Most of them Jovian to this point sadly... Terran planets are harder to find... Even if we could find one like Earth in Goldilocks Orbit... Then go there (if we could) doesn't seem like a good idea... We would probably find a way to fuck it all up like we're doing here.. I think going to Mars right now is a terribly DUMB idea.. If we even do land a Human there... They aren't coming back... Id rather wait another 50 years and become more technically proficient. I don't think we could Kobyashi Maru our way from extinction...
