If this video did not exist , it would be necessary for Watts to invent it.

When I rebooted my machine this evening and started up my browser I got the following message from Wordpress when I peeked at Judy's page:

"curryja.wordpress.com has been terminated for violating the Terms of Service Agreement"

Unfortunately as refresh left me looking at her blog. I really need to delete it from my default set of tabs...

The original Symphony of Science on climate change was Our Biggest Challenge which is even better (and has Alley and Asimov).

World of the Dinosaurs is also awesome.

"Glorious Dawn" is still the best (mainly because Stephen Hawking has such an awesome singing voice)

Watts tried to counter Al Gore's 24 Hours of Reality broadcast. Here's the outcome in viewership.

John Platt at Mother Nature Network wrote [1]

(Update 11/15/12, 8 pm: As the 24-hour events concluded, the Climate Reality Project broadcast had exceeded 15.7 million views. The Watts Up with That broadcast totaled just over 16,000.)

So there were about 1000 people watching Al Gore for every Wattsbot.

That seems quite unfair, as the Wattsathon is only a few hundred times worse than Gore 24 or the PBS auction.
