    whenever i read an article starting with "scientists say" followed by the most unbelievable poppycock, i always wonder "which scientists ? name them please"

    as for the moon, how often has the moon come this close to the earth in the recent geological past, and what is the evidence that this is so exceptional that anything out of the ordinary will happen ?

    It come nearly this close every year. This is the closest approach in 18 years, but last January's closest approach was only 20 km further out.

    The meme that these influence events in an significant way are unsupported by evidence.

    No, the supermoon is just as bad as aliens. An "astrologer" acting as a scientist is BAD.

    i wonder whether there's a word to describe non-scientists who take on the cloak of respectability that science gives in the eyes of a non-scientific public and press

    it probably involves something like snake oil
