Bill Nye Scolds Marsha Blackburn GOP Congresswoman on 'Global Climate Change'

Here we go again. They're back... Exit Al Gore. Enter Bill Nye.
"Neither (Bill Nye) nor I are a climate scientist. He is an engineer and actor, I am a member of Congress. And what we have to do is look at the information that we get from climate scientists,"
►Obama position: 'You're either with US... or you're with the terrorists climate change deniers."

So why don't we have new energy technology ?

If the people that create the technology stand to get very rich ?

Well because the old technology is much more economically viable. The cost of energy is mostly a measure of how efficiently it is produced, with a small cost for public safety thrown in. The fact is that fossil fuels Take much less energy to produce, and so they are probably no worse for the environment than electric cars and Windmills, and are probably better.

Crazy you say ? consider the environmental impact of mining for things like lithium and rare earth metals, as well as transportation of the metals and manufacturing of batteries. Consider the cost of manufacturing, transporting and assembling those huge wind mills. If they were energy efficient, they would pay off, and people would not be asking for subsidies to build them.

The Carbon tax is about governments controlling the distribution of fossil fuels, and not at all about the environment.

Bill Bill Bill Bill! Bill Nye the Wax Mannikin

looks like too much carbon science went into his puppet face... I guess some new age sci-fi hipsters just loooove the smell of their own CO2 so much they put a tax on it.

Lucky for him pink eye coverage is on the new obumbercare plan

Bill Nye knows what we need more than we do. Dangerous thinking.

That kind of thinking is right out of the communist playbook, and it sounds too much like Obama , Gore, and the rest of them. Why doesn't Bill Nye know that China's air is so foul that they are constructing bubbles over playgrounds, schools, and areas so that people will be to breathe?

Why doesn't Bill Nye know that the wind blows globally, so it doesn't matter what we do if the polluting countries are not also doing the same thing? Why isn't any economic pressure being put on China to clean up its act? Because that would raise prices at Walmart.

Lies, and junk science, just like Monsatan tactics with GMO's!

Here is a real scientist with proof that global warming is just a scam.

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

Im sorry, but I can no longer watch this propoganda

without getting nauseous. It is truly sickening watching these actors smile and pump out the stupidity.

Will somebody please

give him a reality show already so he'll stop trying to force himself into grown up conversations?

Defend Liberty!

I would say he is more actor and less an engineer

There are stupid engineers, Nye seems to be one of them

Using fear to control the the sheeple.

“Once the radicals realized that the decades-old rant on global warming was losing credibility because evidence was showing that temperatures may well be falling, they shifted their propaganda language to “climate change”. Climate change has been going on for millions of years, but now it’s all the fault of man’s operating in a free market economy. And it’s become just another excuse for more government – global in scope – to deal with the “impending disaster” Ron Paul – Liberty Defined

NEWS FLASH!!!

The climate changes! What a genius Bill is! Did he learn that on his own.

Doesn't know the difference

between Antarctica and the Arctic?

Ha ha ha

Nye is always spouting that we need to be innovating and at the cutting edge all the while supporting government schools which make our children carbon copies of "well-rounded" government ordered students.

Innovation comes from thinking outside the box Bill.

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

Wait a second

Bill your telling me I'm suppose to believe that our own government is able to fix this Climate Change..derp derp.

He claims he's a 'patriot'

What a maroooooooon!!!

Blackburn actually came off quite well. She could pull facts up very quickly.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
James Madison

Marsha has a low of a 50% conservative record and

a high of a 100% conservative record, depending on year, according to FreedomWorks.

She DID support and vote YES on H.Amdt. 413 to H.R. 2397 - Justin Amash's amendment to defund the NSA :-)

It appears that all, if not most of her negative ratings are budgetary, she votes positively on Civil Rights, though when it comes down to it budgetary is related to personal freedom.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Scientific Consensus is an Oxymoron

Consensus is a Majority of Opinion. Opinions are 'beliefs' on a subject. Science is the process of separating beliefs from facts.

It is not unlike Natural Law vs Majority Rule. The first is Objective and applies to all phenomena, and second is Subjective and applies to special interest.

I find it a bot odd that Nye beat up Ham over his 'questionable' creation theories, yet stands firmly by his very questionable Climate Change hypothesis. I can't call it a theory as it cannot be tested.

Blackburn

Rep. Blackburn: there is not consensus in the scientific community about global warming, pointing to two vocal dissenters maintaining: humans are not causing climate change.

Judith Curry of Georgia Tech

"Duck! any time a sudden 'surge' of rehtoric like this comes...

"We need you to change things, not deny what's happening,"
"stop questioning the facts behind climate change.."
"Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree..."
"according to NASA..."
"Experts say.."
"the vast majority of scientists ascribe..."

Maybe add tried?

I think he came off as a plodding propagandist. He kept reiterating that any doubt must be abolished. Don't worry about any competing science, just say "I believe" and ye shall be free from worry. The path to a crushing carbon tax will be easier that way.

Just open the box and see
