The thing about the climate change issue, I don't understand what they want people to do. Our lives are still very dependent on gasoline and fuel sources that are emitting these green house gas effects. It's one thing to point out an issue, it's even better having a plan to solve it. Of course with the lead thing, we easily could have stopped that production, and we did. Our lives didn't revolve around lead material, it was just cheaper to make them while bringing in a big profit for all those greedy companies. Yet our lives currently revolve around using gasoline and other chemicals that would be causing climate change. Where are the inventions that will make alternative fuel beneficial? C'mon scientists and engineers! If you're going to alert me to a problem, give me a better solution while you're at it. I guess the way I see it, the only solution would be to stop living in a sense. Is that what we should do? (By the why, I hope to get involved in alternative energy. Most people vote for a president based solely on how they look, are they likable. Yet when Obama first ran for office back in '08, he talked a lot about alternative energy production. I would have voted for him based on that one issue. Unfortunately his plans concerning it haven't gone anywhere, and it looks like he abandoned it altogether. That's why when it comes to change, I believe that change will come more from informed and active people who wants to better their society, than voting one guy in to do all the work for us.)
All that said, it was a good show. DeGrasse gave us creationists our airtime in mentioning James Ussher lol! Yet again I'm still waiting for the mention of a black scientist who has contributed something to the world. Of course when it comes to science, all the major discoveries of old will be attributed to western society. Not that other places in the world didn't do anything, and there's plenty of mention coming from the middle east part of Asia with the development of math. It's just that the scientific method was primarily developed in the western world of Europe. I would like to know of a name I didn't know before, of a contribution from a scientist of african descent.
