Colbert’s take on my last post

Posted on Posted in Blog, Main

It happens fairly often that after I post something, I stumble upon an article or video touching on the same topic. After I posted “Why I love grad school,” I was reminded of this video that Jeff sent to me a while back. Colbert does such a great job at summing up the importance of challenging each other’s ideas and coming in contact with ideas that make you uncomfortable that I thought I’d let you hear it for yourself. (Apologies, but the code for embedding the video into the post is broken on the show’s site. Linking to The Colbert Report instead!)

Of course, my favorite line – and that which has become a driving force for a research project this semester – “Sure, there’s a vast consensus on global warming science, but doesn’t the opposing 5% deserve 50% of the time?”
