British satire continues

I enjoy Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe, a BBC Two satirical program now in a third series. BBC TV is not readily available in North America without use of a proxy server but programs sometimes appear on YouTube. If this short audio clip catches your attention, watch the entire show below. The segment involves comedian Diane Morgan as "Philomena Cunk" making a serious effort to learn about climate science. She says,
"If we keep discussing climate change at such an alarming rate, scientists predict the world's stock of weather footage will be exhausted by 2050..."

If you like me cannot understand time, spend more time with Diane Morgan. It's a complicated topic, as anyone who owns Stephen Hawking's "Brief History of Time" understands. His was the best-selling-least-read science book in the last quarter century.

  1. Philomena Cunk's "Time" is a classic.
