Skip to comments.Bill Nye the Science Guy Confuses Arctic with Antarctic at Global Warming Debate
Posted on 02/17/2014 2:55:39 PM PST by SeekAndFind
Arctic, Antarctic, who cares? The science is settled. Just look at this hockey stick. So what if it’s really a baseball bat. The science is settled, I tell you. We settled it one weekend and now it’s settled for good.
At 8 min. 30 seconds in, Nye holds up a picture of Arctic and asks: ‘Would you say that the Antarctic has less ice than it used to?’
Climate Depot’s Answer: NO! See: Antarctic Sea Ice Extent is on track to have highest minimum in modern satellite era! Sea Ice Extent is 27.4% above normal as of Feb 7 2014′
Er, Bill, that graphic youre holding up is one of the Arctic, and not the Antarctic. Nye doesnt even know north from south!
And concerning global sea ice, today it is at near normal levels. Nye cherry-picking the single data-point of September 2013 at the single location of the Arctic is not a persuasive argument never mind him using the wrong chart.
This is why treating a creepy kids’ TV show host like a science expert is a bad idea, but we live in liberal mediaville where no errors by progressives ever get acknowledged.
So Time Magazine headlines this embarrassing performance as “Bill Nye Scolds GOP Congresswoman On Global Warming”.
Neither (Bill) nor I are climate scientists. He is an engineer and an actor, I am a member of Congress. And what we have to do is look at the information that we get from climate scientists, said Rep. Blackburn.
Bill Nye responded harshly to the congresswoman.
We have overwhelming evidence that the climate is changing. That you cannot tie any one event to that is not the same as doubt about the whole thing, said Nye. There is no debate in the scientific community. I encourage the congresswoman to really look at the facts. You are our leader. We need you to change things, not deny whats happening.
Yes Marsha, please change the Arctic into the Antarctic. Immediately. There’s no point in denying that the Arctic is really the Antarctic. Just change it immediately. A guy who made faces on TV for a few years told you so.
What kind of “Scientist” is Bill Nye the Science Guy? His most advanced degree is a Bachelor’s, majoring in Mechanical Engineering. “Dr. Phil” and “Dr Laura,” while not being “doctors,” have more claim to their titles than this joker.
Well, there aren’t always ants in the Arctic, only when it’s warm enough from global warming, and drowned Polar bears attract ‘em.
Arctic or Antarctic. Constitution or Declaration of Independence? What difference does it make?
“What do you call a group of 10 or more penguins on an ice sheet in the Arctic?”
A: REALLY lost — by about 12.000 miles ...
He’s a children’s entertainer. That says it all.
Actually, Dr. Laura earned a master’s and Ph.D. in physiology in 1974 at Columbia. And unlike Obama, we actually know what her doctoral dissertation was.
Dr. Phil earned a Ph.D. degree in clinical psychology in 1979 at the University of North Texas.
What a bufoon! The climatards beclown themselves again
Funny how it was Summer in Antartica when the ICE froze in the morons on their little ship of fools....
Hey! Bill Nye’s just as much an expert in the field of science as Al Gore! Oh, wait...
Bill, only fake people put fake hair on their head.
I ask you. What amount of money will it take to control climate? Why does this attack me?
I proudly stand corrected. I don’t much care for either of the personalities mentioned, but I’m glad to hear they came upon their credentials to old-fashioned way: They earned it.
I've flown with lots of high time retired military and active civil pilots who will read back an instruction correctly to ATC and then execute the turn in the wrong direction. It doesn't seem to correlate with skill as a pilot, but seems like one of those brain fade events. Pilots do a lot better with the up/down thing usually.
For that reason, and only for that, I would tend to give the officious little Nye guy a pass. Just a 'senior moment' that will soon pass. Bow tie too tight probably.
Bill Nye is not a scientist...but he did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
RE: Bill Nye is not a scientist...but he did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
I’m a little slow... what’s the connection?
Apparently you didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
Polar Cap Supposed to Disappear by 2013 is 60% Larger than 2012 September 16, 2013
You can't handle the facts, Bill!
Global Warming Petition Project
31,487 American scientists have signed this petition, including 9,029 with PhDs
The climate is always changing and always has, doofus.
Bill Nye the Fail Guy
Arrogance is one of their better qualities.
Did Captain Kangaroo really give military advice during the Viet Nam War?
I don’t attach a great deal of significance to anything the host of a children’s television program has to say.
Or mediocre Ex-VP and failed presidential candidate.
i say they are ALL liars and idiots . global warming is not happening and hasn't.
i’m not a scientist. but i know the truth
