I don't give a rats xxx what he's written. Seeing him on TV a couple years ago protesting the launch of the Cassini probe, repeatedly and on several shows for several weeks, when of all people he should be intelligent and educated enough to know what the real risks and dangers were, indicates to me that he is a poser who is willing to sell science out in order to try to attain a Sagan-like level of popular fame by playing on the ignorance of the morom masses.
