This piece sort of mirrors Brignell's. Interesting how he skirts CO2, but in a way this sounds to me like a slap to the scientists out there who fail to recognize that they are calling CO2 a "dangerous pollutant".

I read that into it. An example of my bias. The listener is as biased as the writer.

I like Dr. Tyson. He does have a Prodigal Son type following though. Marketing seems to be increasingly important in science these days.
