>> headquarters in new captioning sponsored [cheering and applause] >> jon: welcomeily show." my na man! we got a good on ouris ishysicist so get ready to get your learning on. yo. trying to get kids interested in what up, but first we're coming up on the second anniver scandal the scientific community. no it's not the discovery ofinstein's lingerie collection. e equals mc... about climate- controversy surrounding possible irregulities i research data. >> someolenst e-mails are giving to globalcs. >> hackers seized a file of more than 1,000 e-mails. >> in those e-mail some climate
scientists see that perhaps they're the data. >> jon: ah, then releasing it. yes. [laughter] hacked e-mails suggested that some global warming scientists wer of massage with release. [l ironically giving their critics erections. >> climate-gate has revealed tha movement is run by hacks and frauds. >> the global warming hoax continues to be and debunked. >> one of the things we h learned through climate-gate with the e-mails is this is an unsettled science. >> perhaps it may even be >> jon: poor al gore, g warming completely via the very internet you invented. me from, really, that's only two years ago? i'm aging in dog years.has been dropping
from 7 % in 2006 to only 59% now. it's change of 20% or minus 6.6% celsius or calvin percent. i got a scientist on tonight. i've been reading up o [bleeped] all day. all right. if only an impartial arbiter could come in, remove the warming debit's politic implications and just examine the science. and if only that person could be funded in large part bywo titans of a seldom-heard constituency of the global warming debate, industry. [laughter] yes, richard muller, the berkeley physic's professor that took onf ng climate data as funders, the koch brothers. no not those different coke brothers. those guen think are brothers. that's the guys.es and david koch.so you see where this research sure enough last week sceptical
doc mullertsnnounced his rin an op-ed in the "wall street whoa, global warming is real.did not see that coming. yes, the study funded by the koch brothers confirms that the original research washe earth is getting warmer or judging by this getting more embarrassed. [laughter] climate-gate was a huge story. i bet debunk climate-gate is going -- hoosier. >> foodies of the world rejoice the mcrib is back. >> time toiterally pig out >> the bonelessarbee sandwich will be on mcrib >> how excited are you about themcrib? >> i can't believe there's por mcrib. i thought it was koshe [laughter]>> jon: you know they reintroduce the [bleeped] year. the shamrock shakes all year long, that's big news i don't get this, climate-gate was huge news. the of total of 24 seconds of cable news coverage. doh!
global warming re you win this round, science, butas more. science disease, save greatestt's it really from global warming... >> i don't believe global warming is real. >> to evolution... >> absolutely not. vaccine. >> her of that vaccine. >> it seems science is up to something. >> there are a sub manipulated data so that they will have dollars rolling i their projects. >> could these republicanght we answer the question: science -- what's it up to? to get the colard facts onwith scientists are scamming t own financial gain. have any i don't want to say not data. >> i think every american, if they really thought about it, gut feeling that some ofthese numbers that the not right. >> i knew it. i knew it. i mean, i didn't know it, but one of the most swindlers is columfessor, nobel prize
dr. martin luxurious palace of science.play along here. wh studying? studying nerve cell development. >> yeah, the oldest grift in the book, right >> probably no other occo many people questioning the time. nd you confir experiment. >> but even that's a neat ap. >> onlyqualified scientific theories. this is what raises with not only but americans. >> it's like why are sure jobs the only ones allowed to perform surgeries and other the only ones who get to whether or not this surgery is necessary or not,. m >> n'es>> it never and the only other people heck to make they're not manipulating... scientists. >> they're very >> it's all toobv oou know the scam. >> it's not really a scam. all that we do in pce called peer reviee otherar >> bingo. rape and the jury is f rapists. i mean,ferent from a rapist in >> definitely not a >> that's what a wipist wo
i an part is the rapistsur children.ands of elementary high school students projects, and they >> you're a [bleeped]. get away this. with our most vulnerable at stake, undercover tonal science fair to try to save them from science. investigatedtum physics. >> jesus, what have you? i >> iation of dark galaxies.f the school bus know how the univer you conclusio results. >>o your bra and start listening to your hearts.net and you'll break >> my parents support me. they think science is good. >> pretty soon you're hooking for that's how its.kor is that >> yes. >> it's taugh wisadly whether science is peddling quantum physics or our every day right under our noses. >> it's very co ly taught evolution to go home to a household where their parents say, well, a minute created the earth. >> what isint of teaching children facts if it's justuses the childrenthey go home.
we as americans we're paying tax our children to be educated. offer them every theory that's out there. it's all about freedom. >> i mean, it should be up toican people to decide what's true. >> the future offers little hope.yeah. in big trouble and it's all because of people like you. >>sorry. not good >> aasif mandvi.
round-up. things going among adorable. city.., so nice they union. and oakland, things -- [laughter] [bleeped] happened in oakland? did theunny wake-up? chill out. very slowly tell me what >> they were there for about two weeks. much peacefulring that period. and then police situation deteriorating in terms of a public safety they saw health conditions getting bad, so they decided toll them to disband. >> jon: so the [gunfire]seems a little heavy handed. unless w the protesters godzilla? [laughr] that would justify an attack. ruffians i bet that professor's class is oh are you [blee me? that guy was a public menace?me on.
look i know a group of people can't take over public space forever. it's public yone including people who consider drum circles to beepy time music, but seems to me have been a less. [ismtates machine-gun fire] way of resolving this. want the protesters to occupy that space because it's across from city hall, you know, those kinds of sure you have plety public jack london square right there, boom. popular area down by the water frongtd. maybe that. what about the it's october. you know the a's aren't going to be using it. boom! boom! [applause] did i just making a joke? listen oakland, i know you want to keep the peace respectin to assemble, but it's hard to watch your reaction to this group of protesters with the tear gas when every sunday you host
applause] my guest to physics prt harvard university also a bestselling author. her new book is called "knocking on heaven'sics andking [c ere. >> here. >> jon: it's called "knocking on heaven's scientific thinking illuminate the universe and the modernrld. physics and science the universe and the modern world. why do we fight so hard not to be illuminated by really good and i don't know the answer. so exciting, but i guess part of that some of the id what we see in our daily lives. get outside or human really goingon at places wherelly need technolog make measurements. but my hope is that people or are aware of it then they afraid and they will be more interested. >> jon: i thought it was interesting to watch in the first part, there's a sense that
this is very complicated and it sounds made up.so you must be making it up and then it's a very easy thing to say, and the reason you're maki is because you're working for the democrats. [laughter] you know somehow... i don't understand how it becomes a politicale little turnpens there.rtof the problem i think is actually d always talk about we're a little bit afraid to talk aboutf. we talk abo his person said that. and that's not the same as really understan at th also true isn't always entirely at 100% of the nature of science. that's why we sti and becausay, this is the way it works, we sometimes that and we lose th that t is actuallyinteresting. i assumption, understand the questions people are asking, so you can move forward. >> jon: i always felt that the more you learnientific research, the more mysterious and incredible the universe becomes. you know even if you learn exactly what happened at th bang w particle is whatever other things you clearly are making up, that doesn't discount that doesn't ever get... i don't think we'll
ever get to the we know everything and tre's no room for god or faianything. is that... why are they incompatible? >> well ok first of all, i another say the se questions is fantastic. first of all, it we lived at the one time why knew all the answers. that's what gives us roomin terms of room for people can think whatever want. there's room social psychologicalactually tells very definite way of forward. answer to everyth degree of is how we forwa forward bywe can test. ideas. the answer. the title of "knocking on was we do know a lot but there we're still trying to pry open. and so that signs does. and there's nothing wrong with that. >> do you think the confluence of science and the individual... has science gotten so complex and our knowledge gotten so great that we still have room for things like, you know, we had walter isaacson steve jobs this guy in what was the forefront of semiconductor science and could garage fashion new and incredible things that would help you play pong. [laughter]
are we at a point where that still will be able to... isguard of that can still occur with the individual? >> lo were working out in theld make sense nucleuss, they many years that, wow, this implicas.on there's semiconductor industry. electronics. anditnges the world.what those things are it. seems that these advances come maybe in tandem but certainly when we have more knowledge to think through them. >> jon: is there any... why do you think the further we get into it, we're still stuck in that fossil fuel, you know, engine, and we haven't been able for 100-some years with all the advances we made in so many areas, why energy is still somewhat problem. because i'm the scientist doesn't mean i know the answer to t here's part of the answer. you're talking because i don't think the is i think part of magic bullet yet. everything at th difficult sciee web happens or things expo you have to do research to comnk obviously of entrenched business interesthings in with science. and i think that gets confused world.
