Recently, Bill Nye, the kids show actor turned liberal Climate Change propagandist was very open and outright friendly to the idea of putting those who deny climate change in JAIL.
He compared climate change deniers to those in the cigarette industry who insisted cigarette’s were not addictive, 2 cases that bear nearly no resemblance.
Asked about the heated rhetoric surrounding the climate change debate, such as Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s previous comments that some climate skeptics should be prosecuted as war criminals, Mr. Nye replied, “We’ll see what happens.”
“Was it appropriate to jail the guys from Enron?” Mr. Nye asked in a video interview with Climate Depot’s Marc Morano. “We’ll see what happens. Was it appropriate to jail people from the cigarette industry who insisted that this addictive product was not addictive, and so on?”
“In these cases, 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,” Mr. Nye said. “So I can see where people are very concerned about this, and they’re pursuing criminal investigations as well as engaging in discussions like this.”
Mr. Nye’s comments come with a coalition of liberal attorneys general pursuing companies that challenge the consensus of catastrophic climate change. Critics fear the campaign could chill research and free speech.
Virgin Islands Attorney General Claude E. Walker raised concerns about a government crackdown on dissent when he issued a subpoena last week to the free market Competitive Enterprise Institute for its climate-related research and documents.
Next, came Bill Nye’s disgraceful appearance on CNN.
Already pitted 3 against 1 against a real scientist who does not believe in Climate Change, he turned against CNN for even allowing someone on the program with an alternate opinion.
One thing you will always notice about Nye is that he is always more about liberal politics than science. This appearance was no different.
TV personality Bill Nye criticized CNN on New Day Saturday for letting a skeptic of man-made climate change participate in a panel discussion.
“I will say, much as I love CNN, you’re doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic, and not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change,” Nye contended.
Nye appeared with May Boeve of the green action group 350.org and Princeton University physics professor William Happer, who has downplayed the impact of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. So despite the two-to-one slant in favor of the environmentalists, the former PBS host wasn’t satisfied.
Anchor Victor Blackwell turned to Happer first during the segment, and asked him about his meeting with President Donald Trumpearlier in 2017. The professor emphasized that Trump was “very supportive of science. His uncle, John Trump, was a physicist at M.I.T., and we talked a little bit about him. I knew about his work. So I don’t think science has anything to fear from Mr. Trump.”
Blackwell followed up by noting that Happer once said “the world is getting greener, and people should stop hyperventilating.” Happer replied by explaining his take on carbon dioxide.
There’s this myth that’s developed around carbon dioxide that it’s a pollutant. But you and I both exhale carbon dioxide with every breath. Each of us emits about two pounds of carbon dioxide a day; so are we polluting the planet? Carbon dioxide is a perfectly natural gas. It’s just like water vapor. It’s something that plants love. They grow better with more carbon dioxide, and you can see the greening of the Earth already from the additional carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Nye then retorted with his hint that CNN shouldn’t even bring on climate change skeptics. He later emphasized that “if you suppress science; if you pretend that climate change isn’t a real problem; you will fall behind other countries that do invest in science, that do invest in basic research.”
