    Nye Connects Irma To 'Climate Change'

    AGAIN: Nye Connects Irma To 'Climate Change'


    Bill Nye hyped "climate change" in relation to Hurricane Irma during a recent run-in with TMZ.

    Nye alluded to “climate deniers,” a term coined by leftists to smear those who reject the narrative of “climate change."

    The New Republic – a self-described "progressive" news outlet – worries that Nye is damaging the "climate change" narrative:

    Nye’s response to this critique, as he said to the Post, is that “it doesn’t take ... a meteorologist to comprehend the perils of climate change.” That is true. But comprehending climate change is one thing; explaining it and defending it effectively is another. Historically, Nye has done that; lately, not so much. It seems that years of political debate have made him too jaded, exasperated, strident, and partisan to be the face of the climate change fight. Worse, he’s unwittingly feeding the conservative narrative that the left’s reverence for science is all just a political performance.
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    bill Nye needs to go away too. the climate is following the patterns that it has been following for millions of years. cold ,today we are coming out of the last ice age, and millions of years later the ice will return

    Except for the part where there are hurricanes every year. That's why they call it "hurricane season".

    Duh.

    Not Bill Nye related, but I was watching Brock Long's presser this morning. The first question (I swear the reporter sounded like Andrea Mitchell) was trying to get both Long and the acting DHS Secretary to pin Irma and Harvey on climate change. Long didn't answer the question, not that he should have, so she kept hammering it. Finally the DHS Secretary said we hadn't had hurricanes like this for many years so we (at DHS) can't say if this is an anomaly or a trend. That's for the experts at NOAA and other agencies to determine.
