And so it is then that according to Bill Nye “The Bogus Science Guy” ALL global warming skeptics, such as myself, should now be jailed by the federal government because “this extreme doubt about climate change is affecting my quality of life as a public citizen.” He made his idiotic comments during an interview with the conservative ‘Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow’ (CFACT) which was then published on YouTube this past Wednesday. Nye was asked by CFACT interviewer Marc Morano if he agrees with other green ‘activists’ that the government should throw global warming skeptics into jail as criminals, to which Nye responded “Well, we’ll see what happens. ” I’d say it’s Nye who represents the far greater danger to the rest of us.
Nye asked, “Was it appropriate to jail the guys from ENRON?” And he then went on to ask, “Was it appropriate to jail people from the cigarette industry who insisted that this addictive product was not addictive and so on? For me as a taxpayer and voter — the introduction of this extreme doubt about climate change is affecting my quality of life as a public citizen.” Nye was being interviewed for “Climate Hustle,” an upcoming documentary film skeptical of global warming that premieres nationwide next month. When asked if his proposal would generate a chilling effect on scientific research, Nye responded, “That there is a chilling effect on scientists who are in extreme doubt about climate change — I think is good.”
The question was a reference to green activist Robert F. Kennedy’s statement in a September 2014 interview where he said that the government should “punish” and imprison anyone who says that global warming “does not exist.” And just to show how far out there in the kook fringe this boob is, Kennedy also accused the Koch Brothers of “treason” for “polluting our atmosphere.” I would argue that besides being one more bit of evidence which proves that more than just a little inbreeding has long been taking place within the Kennedy clan, Kennedy’s claims, which also provoked a rather sharp response from many conservative publications, also make it quite clear that those who preach the religion of ‘climate change’ seem to have lost all touch with reality.
But let’s face it, I think most of us will agree that “climate science” is really little more than an oxymoron. And those on the left can continue to deny that fact until the cows come home but it isn’t going to magically become anything other than that. Because if the “man-caused global warming” believers, aka the nuts, were RIGHT, the science would have long ago proven them to be right and there would be NO NEED for any further discussions. But since the “man-caused global warming” nuts keep using words like “should be”, “could be”, “looks like”, “may be”, “appears to be”, and a wild assortment of other questionable words in their debates, that proves that the “science is still out” concerning “man-caused global warming!”
Nye, as many may recall, is the former host of the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) children’s series “The Science Guy.” And as such, what we have here is another perfect example of how taxpayer money is so badly wasted. Besides being used to subsidize the brainwashing of our children it’s also used in much the same manner to subsidize a near endless stream of propaganda that can, on nearly any day, be heard on that other government outlet, National Public Radio (NPR). It’s odd that Democrats are all in favor of such brainwashing and yet harp on it is that conservatives are being ‘brainwashed’ by those on Talk Radio which comes from the right and, oddly enough, requires absolutely zero government subsidization. But that’s a story for another day.
Nye began his ‘professional entertainment’ career as a writer/actor on a local sketch comedy television show which was on the in that bastion of leftwing lunacy, Seattle, Washington. His first appearance came on something that called ‘Almost Live!’. The host of this particular show, Ross Shafer, suggested that Nye do some scientific demonstrations in a six-minute segment, and take on the nickname “The Science Guy”. I’d be curious to know just how it was that this boob was able to go from a ‘six-minute science’ guy to being recognized, by the left, as an expert on the subject of “climate change.’ Because it’s quite obvious that he knows very little about that which he claims to be an expert.
And perhaps it is Barry and Mr. Nye who are the one who should be incarcerated because it’s they, and those who share their cockamamie views on ‘climate change’, who are essentially responsible for damaging the quality of life for the people of Kentucky and West Virginia with their climate change nonsense as well as for having thousands of hard working Americans being out of work courtesy of the bizarre ongoing war against coal producers in this country. Nye is a complete nut who owns a home on each coast and flies all over profiting from the climate change myth, all the while producing a sizable carbon footprint that is comparable to that left by the likes of Al Gore and Lenny DiCaprio.
The hypothesis of anthropogenic (man-made) global warming, began with Roger Revelle and Hans E. Sues in an article in, Tellus, Vol 9, No. 1 18-27 (1957). The article suggested the growing quantity of CO2 resulting from burning fossil fuel ‘might’ cause global warming. No one can claim that Revelle thought we should spend hundreds of billions of dollars on reducing ‘climate change’. He did not believe that. Also, the man who developed the computer models that all the other computer models are based on, Syukuro Manabe, doesn’t believe the models are useful for predicting climate warming. But why should we listen to men like these when we have guys like Barry, John Kerry-Heinz, Al Gore and Mr. ‘Science Guy’ here to keep us straight?
And also it’s one of the most eminent scientists alive, Freeman Dyson, who does not believe we should be taking any action to reduce carbon emission, because we don’t know if the carbon we are producing is a net good, or a net bad. So I guess my question to Nye would be, why is it that we should be listening to the man who founded the science; or the guy whose models the science is based on; or even one of the preeminent physicists alive, when we have such a valuable resource as the guy who was the host of a Disney Children’s show? It’s a no brainer right? We should go with the Disney host every time. I mean, it’s absolute nonsense how this ‘six-minute science’ guy can see himself as being more knowledgeable than real scientists!
And then if you’re really interested you can check out Nye’s evolution vs creation debate with creationist Ken Ham on You Tube. Nye’s illogical and uninformed arguments in the debate would make any evolutionist begin to have doubts about his beliefs. That being the standard his reasoning operates under, one can only be skeptical about his views on climate change. The guy is, as are most leftists, really an intellectual lightweight. And also, especially like our current president as well as the Democrat frontrunner in the race to replace him, leftists seem to have an over-inflated sense of importance. The size of their egos is exceeded only by the number of issues they know nothing about but on which they claim to be experts!
