New age of ignorance

The new age of ignorance.
A panel of well known (UK) scientists and artists are asked some basic questions about science
Except the questions weren't that basic (since when is the Second Law of Thermodynamics
considered basic knowledge?) so the results weren't surprising... although some of the answers were amusing ("The sky is blue because the sea reflects on it.").
The worrying thing is that the questions could have been much simpler ("How many planets are there in the Solar System?") and I suspect the results would have been much the same. Meanwhile, ignorance marches on
