Skip to comments.Joe Bastardi Takes Down Global Warming Hoax
Posted on 02/23/2010 4:54:46 AM PST by eRtwngr
I nearly jumped out of my chair watching the debate on Bill O'Reilly's show last night between Joe Bastardi and Bill Nye. A quick search of the web tells me I wasn't alone. Nye got his lunch eaten. When I get the video, I'll post it here. Fox knows they have something good so it's not released for distribution yet.

Never bring an engineering degree to a climatefight with a meterologist.
The Goracle will be in hiding for another month after this!
Especially Bastardi. That guy is sharp as a tack. He's nailed the long range forecast for my area 4 years in a row now. He looks like he works out, too. Check out his arms. I'd bet he could handle himself in more than just a war of words, too.....
I saw it too. Great segment. He took Nye to the woodshed and beat him severally with facts.
Oh I did not see that!
Way to go, Joe!
Is it on youtube yet?
Ping me when it is thanks.
Not on YouTube yet but the full video is on FoxNews in the O’Reilly section
I still get a chuckle thinking that it was not a documentary that won the Oscar, but a Mockumentary. Of course, much of its competition were Mockumentaries, as well (e.g., Jesus Camp).
He’s a wrestler who still works out wih collegians.
Cool! I recorded it because I heard that Newt spanked O’R, now I get to see Joe spank Nye as a bonus!
I thought he was a body builder...maybe both.
There’s an old saying; “Data Talks Bullshit Walks”
I knew there was something else I liked about him. I was a wrestler in my younger years. I help coach the local high school team here from time to time now when my shoulder allows.
i wanted to like Bill Nye because i watched his show with my kids when they were young, but he is a clueless, pompous dweeb.
College wrestler at Penn St. and current competitive body builder in his age group.....all natural, no chemicals.
Any time I see someone wearing a bow-tie(like Nye), I get suspicious.
Funny how Bastardi was excited about talking about his field of study, yet Nye came across like a POMPOUS, arrogant Professor talking to a bunch of stupid rocks.
Bill Nye .. you lost that one.
ping. You might like this.
SPECTACULAR!!! GO JOE!! Lets Run JOE for President in 2012!! Joe would EAT OBOZO Alive! OBOZO’S Teleprompters would Blow Apart! This Scandal shows how Corrrupted, Decayed, and Treasonous the DEMORAT SENIOR LEADERSHIP REALLY IS!! They care Nothing about Our Freedoms and America, but just their short term Ill Gotten Fraudulent Bribes and Under the Table Income from Government Programs!
AMAZING!! WAKE UP AMERICA!! WAKE UP!!
My favorite part of the interview was after Joe’s intro with a laundry list of evidence and reasoned argument, Nye’s response was “Well, the evidence is overwhelming PAUSE PAUSE”
I think he thought he could end it there, but when BOR didn’t say anything, he had to start blabbering on and on about 1750 - a total maroon.
If you just landed here from another planet and knew northing about global warming, this single interview would have convinced you that the whole thing is a crock.
I have heard a lot of stupid things in my 60 odd years but Bill Nye’s claim that “global warming” causes volcanos to erupt ranks in the top ten.
I am glad to hear Bastardi won. I hardly understood a word either of them said.
Joe knows. Who do you believe- a meteorologist with a proven track record who’s the real deal or a hollywood science beaker geek reading his lines?
There may actually be some coincidence between rising temperatures and volcanic activity. It does show up in some of the long term data including pre-AGW cult corrupted data. The likely reason, though, is one the AGW cultists won’t discuss because it blows their theories/scam apart.
What am I talking about? It’s fairly clear that solar activity, esp magnetic activity, drives a lot of our climate cycle. This has been talked about in depth on FR. Short version: quiet sun brings more cold, active sun brings more warm. A more magnetically active sun might create massive current fluxes in the Earth’s dynamo (spinning iron core), resulting in significant heating. This in turn could cause more volcanic activity.
AGW cultists won’t touch this, though, because the socialists who fund them haven’t figured out a way to tax the sun yet...
Extrapolation of data = cherry picking and manipulation.
Goracle flunked out of Divinity School right? He obviously would not be in his present state of public ridicule IF he had taken his schooling more seriously....
Genesis 8:21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in His heart, "I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."
There are no exceptions given even for the evil imaginations of Goracle.
I hafta admit twas fun watching REAL scientist and meteorologist Joe Bastardi undress with the facts phony science guy (plays one on TV) Bill Nye last night on OReilly! Nyes dont confuse me with the facts bleetings were pathetic (IMHO)! More at link below:
Nye was left throwing the Denier term and pure emotion when his Hockey Stick graph failed to dent Bastardi’s arguments. To be quoting IPCC is a weak source to begin with.
Pray for America’s Freedom
So you joined FR to pimp your blog. Nice.
Bastardi is one smart dude. I heard him the Friday night before Katrina hit predict the flooding from those levies/whatever they are called, told anyone in NO to get out now.
I also loved it cause BOR is a climate weenie.
It was great...JB made Nye look like the bumbling hack that he is.
Whew! Glad I'm not the only one.
Newt spanked BO big time...Orielly looked completely lost...it was a thing of beauty.
When did Bill Nye become Bill Nye the Evil-Looking Guy? His face looks like it’s been pulled back by plastic surgery, and he has some seriously creepy Mr. Spock eyebrows.
I think Bastardi was the one who was clobbered: (1) because he had poor command of his visual props, and whipped through them and (2) Nye was slower and calmer and seemed more confident (decades of TV training).
You’re joking, right?
I think O’REilly is getting lazy. Lately he just has on a lot of guests that do most of the talking and doesn’t do much talking himself. He’s not doing the research and doesn’t have the knowledge and what he says sounds silly.
He doesn’t have the passion he once had.
The Science Guy got take down by a .... weatherman. Was Lulz to watch.
Indeed. I was going banana’s while watching this and O’Reilly persisting repeatedly with his “Socialism is ...private property” garbage. Then I laughed harder when Juan Williams came on to defend Jack Squat’s socialism/socialistic tendencies. Both O’Reilly and Juam fail! The look on O’Reilly’s face was pricelss when Newt siad “Yes...Jack Squat is a socialist and shows it via his socialistic policies and tendencies”.....
The ironic part was that none of them bothered to note Jack Squat’s past mentions that “you know me by those I surround/identify myself with”.....being 3/4’s of his Czars are socialists or have strong Communist inclinations or a sever fondness for Socialism/Communism. =.=
