Up to his old tricks, making up unsubstantiated, scary forecasts.
"By the end of this century, if emissions keep rising, the average temperature on Earth could go up another four to eight degrees," Nye said. "What I'm saying is the planet's on f***ing fire."
metmike: Right, Bill, the temperature went up 1 deg the last century and the planet is greening up and this will lead to temperatures going up 4 to 8 times faster and the planet being on fire.............based on? What exactly is this based on?
Based on trying to scare people by lying to them.
From the same link:
"Oliver, though, seems to be in support of the Green New Deal: "It is a non-binding resolution that very briefly sets out some extremely aggressive goals, including achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions, meeting 100% of the country's power demand through clean, renewable and zero-emission energy sources and creating millions of good, high-wage jobs in the United States ... The whole Green New Deal is just 14 pages long."
metmike: Oh,oh guys, your Green New Deal leader sounds like she's changing her tune...........maybe after realizing it can't work in this universe.
metmike: With regards to Bill Nye.
Gifted and very charismatic actor. Knows alot about many scientific topics.
Nye presents himself as somebody that understands how the atmosphere works and uses his name recognition to bamboozle people.
How do we know that he really doesn't understand the atmosphere?
He was tested on live television and amazingly, showed to us that he doesn't understand the Ideal Gas Law(PV=nRT). That means zilch to all the non atmospheric scientists reading this.............but it would be like a medical doctor, not understanding what blood pressure is in humans (-:
"Whether you believe Belicheck or not, one statement in the above video is patently, totally, completely, unabashedly, embarrassingly false. It's Nye's claim that, " . . . to really change the pressure in the ball, you need one of these - the inflation needle."
"In one flip comment, Nye undermines the cool conversation we've all been having while totally discounting a whole lot of physics. The fact is you can change the relative pressure in the ball by changing the temperature of the gas inside, by changing the properties of the the material the ball is made of (getting it wet and potentially making it more stretchy, perhaps), and changing the pressure of the atmosphere outside the ball (can you say "barometer," Mr. Nye?)"
"It's possible that none of these factors explain away DeflateGate, but to unimaginatively dismiss them the way Nye did utterly undermines his cred as a science educator. Really?!?!? All it takes for him to go totally anti-science on us is to be a fan of the Seahawks?
"Please, Mr. Nye, step back, think about what you did for a moment, and then try again."
Nye has turned into an angry activist that has completely abandoned authentic climate science to push the agenda. He is great at repeating really, really scary things like his ludicrous temperature forecast.:
Replicating Al Gore’s Climate 101 video experiment (from the 24 hour Gore-a-thon) shows that his “high school physics” could never work as advertised
The most egregious faked presentation in that video was the scene with the split screen thermometers, edited to appear as if the temperature in the jar of elevated CO2 level was rising faster than the jar without elevated CO2 level.
"It turns out that the thermometers were never in the jar recording the temperature rise presented in the split screen and the entire presentation was nothing but stagecraft and editing.
This was proven beyond a doubt by the photoshop differencing technique used to compare each side of the split screen. With the exception of the moving thermometer fluid, both sides were identical.
The reason why I took so much time then to show this chicanery was Mr. Gore’s pronouncement in an interview the day the video aired."
His specific claim was:
“The deniers claim that it’s some kind of hoax and that the global scientific community is lying to people,” he said. “It’s not a hoax, it’s high school physics.” – Al Gore in an interview with MNN 9/14/2011
Is there a better example of who and what the dem party has become than the "Green New Deal"?
Bill Nye doesn't miss an opportunity as he compares climate change to D-Day. But Chris Matthews actually made me feel embarrassed that a network news anchor could be so wrong about facts, that he would trash the person that he hates for stating something accurately.
Bill Matthews led into the interview by playing a clip of Trump making some statements about tornadoes and other things...... then bashed him for not having a clue about what he's talking about."somebody is feeding him this bs/crap"...............titling the segment "denier in chief".
Here's the thing about this segment/interview. It had to have been planned out well in advance. For one thing, they had to arrange for Bill Nye to come on their show. They had to tape the interview with Trump on climate change and review it, you would think more than once and by numerous people who picked out and edited the parts they wanted to play in front of this segment with Bill Nye. When they picked the title "Denier in chief" they obviously believed the part of the interview they were playing was evidence that Trump was a "climate denier" and was making bs statements.
So what did Trump say about the weather that Matthews criticized him for? Here's one thing that he said:
"40 years ago, we had the worst tornado binge that we've ever had"
So Trump didn't say it perfect but he's obviously been educated by somebody that knows or done some homework on the science or how else would he have known that violent tornadoes peaked in the 1970's during global cooling, when we had the "tornado binge"?
Him saying that "we had our worse hurricanes in the 1890's" was not scientifically correct. Even though he had the right idea(hurricanes have not increased in number or strength, despite global warming and many of the worst ones occurred back then), he did a Donald Trump by saying it wrong.
Trump says so many things wrong and has made me cringe before when he talks about climate change or weather because it usually shows that he doesn't understand it that well and he is usually a horrible spokesperson to represent skepticism in a climate crisis.
However, this was an exception and I was mildly impressed for once.
