EARTH - The Operators? Manual (E-TOM) EARTH: The Operators' Manual : PBS Senate Republicans introduce bill to defund NPR, PBS I'm watching "Earth: Operator's Manuel". Amazing, the time lapse video of glaciers over years. Some have shrunk so much, the cameras had to be moved. The cycles of the earth's orbit and the rising temperature from the sun are all studied and the data applied. The sun gets 10 degrees warmer every 1 billion years. Volcanoes don't burn rocks. Instead, rocks are "melted" so they add between 1/50 and 1/100 times as much as humans do. Because people "burn" and not "melt". How do they know? Because samples of the atmosphere are trapped in the ice. Also, there are different kinds of CO2. Scientists can tell the difference between the type of CO2 that comes from volcanoes and what comes from burning fossils fuels and what ever else burns. Our military employs scientists so they know that climate change is happening. The US Military is the largest user of energy in the US. They scientists they employ are working to move our military away from fossil fuels. When I watch shows like this, put together by scientists using evidence, I understand why Republicans are desperate to defund these sources of public knowledge and slash education.
