Sheldon: What are they doing here?
Leonard: We came to apologize again and bring you home. So why don't you pack up your stuff, and we'll head back?
Sheldon: No, this is my home now. Thanks to you, my career is over, and I will spend the rest of my life here in Texas trying to teach evolution to creationists.
Mrs. Cooper: You watch your mouth, Shelly. Everyone's entitled to their opinion.
Sheldon: But evolution is not opinion, it's a fact.
Sheldon's mom: And that is your opinion.

Does anyone have a good Simpsons reference?

This mass hysteria is people collectively thing, wishing, hoping, fearing, obsessing over how we all are going to die from man made global warming. Thinking the solution is to go Khmer rhouge on the population. The true threat, the subject of the mass hysteria can be completely real or total fiction.
It's not if it's happening, it's how people are reacting to it.

Obviously climate change happens.
Best example, the ending of the last ice age.

Hysteria? That doesn't describe science, and it doesn't describe what we know.

It does describe your opinion - but your opinion about facts doesn't change them.
I don't think the hysteria is over the science, but over the economics. I've always been a believer in thermal runaway punctuated by asteroidal winter.

Starting in 2022 through 2023 there will be a massive slow moving comet moving through the solar system.
It's out past Saturn now astronomers can already see it and it's the brightest one seen since the invention of modern telescopes. This is probably a once in a thousand years comet.

Wait 5 years look up at the night sky.
It was some astronomy news letter. No major news outlets have picked up the story and I doubt anyone who doesn't read astronomy news letters will hear or see anything about it for at least another 3 or 4 years.
Or about the time I can see it with my long range spotting scope is when lame stream media will run it.

Thanks, I was thinking of 3200 Phaeton. That's in December of Current Year.

The linked article has the usual NASA theory of volatile gases:
Quote:
"K2 is so far from the Sun and so cold, we know for sure that the activity all the fuzzy stuff making it look like a comet is not produced, as in other comets, by the evaporation of water ice," said lead researcher David Jewitt of the University of California, Los Angeles. "Instead, we think the activity is due to the sublimation [a solid changing directly into a gas] of super-volatiles as K2 makes its maiden entry into the solar system's planetary zone. That's why it's special. This comet is so far away and so incredibly cold that water ice there is frozen like a rock."
Comet C/2012 S1 ISON (14th November 2013) showed us that the flaring can occur at the the barycenter coordinate of Sun and the gas giants.

The interstellar interloper will now be referred to as 'Oumuamua, which means "a messenger from afar arriving first" in Hawaiian.
