Aviation pioneer and master engineer Burt Rutan on Global Warming
Came across this video series the other day and now is a great opportunity to share it. You know, it's just a lot of fun, after being called a "flat-earther" and a "denialist" (is that even a freaking word???) to share such a well thought out presentation that is skeptical of AGW claims.
Who is Burt Rutan?
Elbert Leander "Burt" Rutan (born June 17, 1943) is an American aerospace engineer noted for his originality in designing light, strong, unusual-looking, energy-efficient aircraft. He is often described as the "second true innovator" in the field of aerospace materials technology; his most important predecessor was German engineer Hugo Junkers, who pioneered the design of all-metal aircraft in 1915. He is most famous for his design of the record-breaking Voyager, which was the first plane to fly around the world without stopping or refueling, and the sub-orbital spaceplane SpaceShipOne, which won the Ansari X-Prize in 2004 for becoming the first privately funded spacecraft to enter the realm of space twice within a two week period. He has four aircraft on display in the National Air and Space Museum: SpaceShipOne, the Virgin Atlantic GlobalFlyer, Voyager, and the VariEze.
Enjoy the video series.
