Watch Bill Nye Refuse To Answer Basic Science Questions About Global Warming

Bill Nye the Science Guy joined Fox News’s Tucker Carlson on Monday to talk about global warming, but refused to answer any basic questions about it, and instead went on a weird rant about the White House.

When Carlson asked Nye to what degree human activity is causing climate change, Nye refused to answer. Instead he went on a lengthy, meandering diatribe about dinosaurs and the Ice Age.

  • This is Tucker’s best interview to date — he totally smashed Nye on climate change “science”. In fact Nye refused to answer any questions on science — because he can’t, he’s not a scientist he’s a fraud. He couldn’t even answer basic questions such as what is the percentage of man-made climate change in comparison to natural climate change? And what is the rate of man-made climate change since the industrial revolution, compared to the expected rate of natural change?

    Actually, if you listen closely Nye did in fact answer the latter question (twice) — he said the rate of man-made change is 100%, zero percent (0%) natural change rate! Nye is a fraud — I’d love to see Bill Nye, Al Gore, and David Suzuki in a public science debate with a real scientist such as Nir Shaviv. Even these three ganging up against one real scientist would be totally smashed. (But a debate like that would require a moderator who would be committed to keeping the debate focused on science so the three frauds don’t stray into ideology, politics, and name-calling).

    So what are you afraid of Nye, Suzuki and Gore? I would put the three of you frauds against any real scientist such as Nir Shaviv, Tim Ball, et al in a real science debate. Why have we not yet seen a single public debate on the subject? Because the frauds will be unmasked and they know it.

      Suzuki got smashed on the (Australian) ABC Question Time program by a guy in the audience who exposed what a complete fraud Suzuki is. I don’t think they’ll be doing that sort of thing any more.

      • I remember hearing about that — Suzuki is a coward. Really the only way we can hope for an honest debate is by pressuring Politicians — the citizenry needs to refuse any more legislation re: climate change/global warming until we have healthy public evidence-based debates.

        • Alain

          They are all cowards and frauds. That is why they want dissenters jailed at the very least, and probably dead if they were honest.

          • Although most dissenters are simply quietly pushed out of their careers — which is even more insidious. I’d rather go to jail, whereby I could raise cane to the high heavens…

      • Watchman

        David Suzuki refusing to acknowledge a pause in the Catastrophic Anthrogenic Global Warming (CAGW) that is now termed “Climate Change” to avoid the difficult questions that the original CAGW term invites, and has no good answers for:

        Suzuki is not even familiar with the data used that is the fundamental core of the claims of CAGW. A one hour research on the Internet would be sufficient to understand the data sources, and given the 15+ hour flight to Australia could have been done on the flight over to appear on this TV show. This shows that it isn’t about the science, it’s about the politics and the justification for being paid grandly for grandstanding.

        watched it..KookiSuzuki made an ass of himself
        did not know who was on UN IPCC panel

        • Alain

          I am not aware of a time when he didn’t make an arse of himself.

    • mauser 98

      ‘got booted from DeSmog Blog
      big time warming whacks

      they’re in convulsion re Pruitt, TRex

    • mikeh420

      And an excellent replacement for that show with Whatshername.

  • Brett_McS

    They’re more interested in what percentage of your income is causing global warming. The science is in: It’s a big percentage.

    • Reminds me of the now-defunct corrupt practice of the Catholic Church from centuries ago , when the faithful were required to pay “indulgences” to the Church in exchange for forgiveness of sin.

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        It’s the Gaia worshippers’ version.

      • Alain

        Exactly, and the same applies to the promotion of white guilt and/or reparations for whatever.

  • Clausewitz

    Bill Nye, the political asshat guy………

    • Watchman

      The man who obviously never heard of the “Little Ice Age” that was reflected in Charles Dickens’s descriptions in his novels, a time when the Thames in London froze over, and we are now in a time where natural warming ended this Little Ice Age over the last 150 years.

      Bill Nye is on thin ice talking about growing grapes in Britain: the Roman-occupied and Medieval Warm periods were both indeed warm enough that grapes were grown, so any warming then didn’t have catastrophic consequences, and the temperatures went back down again.

      • Frances

        I noticed that, as well. Bill Nye kept saying our climate would be the same as it was in 1750 or thereabouts. So far as I understand, that was part of the Little Ice Age, during which there were nasty things like crop failures and famines. But, hey, it was “natural” and therefore good in his eyes.

      • Not much of a Biologist, and he doesn’t know much about Archaeology and Geology either. Entire Native villages have been found in the bottom of lakes on the Canadian Shield. Those lakes were once dry valleys where human settlement flourished — before a widespread glacial cooling, followed by a natural melting centuries ago, filling all the valleys with water.

  • dance…dancetotheradio

    Nye said that human activity averted the next ice age.
    Well, good.
    I am old enough to remember the ice age hysteria in the seventies.
    I did find it incongruous that he would mention that it was warmer millions of years ago.
    If it was and life survived then what is there to worry about?

    • Yep, “Nuclear Winter” for one.

      “Former Soviet intelligence officer Sergei Tretyakov claimed that, under the directions of Yuri Andropov, the KGB invented the concept of “nuclear winter” in order to stop the deployment of NATO Pershing II missiles. They are said to have distributed to peace groups, the environmental movement and the journal Ambio disinformation based on a faked “doomsday report” by the Soviet Academy of Sciences by Georgii Golitsyn, Nikita Moiseyev and Vladimir Alexandrov concerning the climatic effects of nuclear war.[233]”

      • Alain

        Those “peace groups and movements” were organised by the KGB, especially the anti-war crowd.

    • Alain

      Based on the shitty weather we are having where I live, it really does seem like the beginning of another ice age. As an aside am I the only one who finds that Canadians panicking over the possibility of “global warming” boggles the mind. If only it were true, it would be a blessing for Canada and all northern countries.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        It was minus thirty six when I woke up this morning.
        Despite the unusually mild winter up here, every once in a while the deep freeze returns.
        I’ve been told that spring returns in May.

  • andycanuck

    He, Gore, Suzuki et alia refuse to debate skeptics like Lord Monckton as well.

  • Maggat

    Bye bye, don’t cry now, Nye.

  • Gary

    Bill Nye has a degree in Engineering that uses Science to build things once the evidence for stress and endurance dictates future outcomes.

    So why would Bill blindly accept the word of Al Gore and some rigged Software by the UN that said the Ice cap would be melted by now.
    He also admitted just last year that co2 was a pollutant , this was what Obama and premier Wynne agreed with too.

    • Brett_McS

      I’m also a Mechanical Engineer. We’re not all that bright.

      • G

        I’m certain you are much smarter than Bill Nye.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        I have an immense respect for mechanical engineers.
        I’m not an engineer.
        And my discipline is electronic.

        • Luna Tik

          Electronic discipline as in electrified electrodes to the testicles?

          Keep it DC cause if you go AC you could experience the Skin Effect!

      • Watchman

        Wow. So I is wun two!

  • JoKeR

    Bill Nye has been taking too many of those Buffalo tranquilizers for too long now.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    When he was in his prime, Joe Louis would engage in frequent matches wherein he would flatten his opponents. The boxing writers called it “The Bum of the Month Club.” Since given his nightly program, Carlson has established his own Bum of the Night Club. You would think that after a while, it would dawn on those invited guests that they were being set up for a big time teardown. They probably think that because he has a calm demeanor and is nattily dressed, they can put something over on him. They haven’t been able to do so.

    Remember when the deterioration of the ozone layer was a big deal! Now we hear virtually nothing about the ozone layer. Sure most CFC have been banned in the west but not in many developing nations. China is the worst polluter in the world with over a billion people. The ozone layer fad was a precursor of the man made climate change fiasco. The climate is always changing and has been for billions of years even if it is a problem redistributing people’s wealth isn’t the answer. Adapting to change such as building damns and levies, desalination plants in drought ridden areas is.

  • mikeh420

    Climate change is cyclic, we’re still coming out the ice ages of tens of thousands of years ago, so of course the temperature is rising.

    He shows us the difference between a true scientist and a “Science Guy”.
