"Historic resistance from Democrats, the media and even some Republicans has made your accomplishments even more monumental," Gunasekara wrote. "I am increasingly concerned with the rhetoric from the far-left supportive of Venezuelan-style socialism, government take-overs and crony 'green new deals' that do little for the environment and threaten our economic success."
Appearing on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews, Nye said Gunasekara's environmental policies were "striking" given that she and her husband have two young kids who will "inherit the Earth." He noted that these children are going to have to interact with their mother, who has been a strong advocate of "putting more carbon dioxide" into the atmosphere.
"What they do - very common in the people that they have hired, the environmental protection agency of late, including Mr. Wheeler - is confuse or try to blur the idea that carbon dioxide, although not a traditional pollutant, is a problem," Nye said. "Carbon dioxide is the problem. Yes, methane is a problem, some other greenhouse gases are the problem. But because there is so much carbon dioxide, it is the main thing that we need to address."

Because for decades consumers were demanding ala carte on demand programming and competitors like HULU, Sling TV, YouTube TV etc are the ones leading the way.
| Bill Nye the Science Guy has a somewhat imprecise idea of how this whole climate thingy works.
Carbon dioxide is NOT the culprit in whatever climate change is going on. This observation is too simplistic by far, as there is only a very small percentage of carbon dioxide free at any given moment in our atmosphere or dissolved in the surface waters of Earth.
But that small percentage is responsible for maintaining ALL life on earth, as it is the source of the oxygen we breathe and the food source known as carbohydrates which is the direct result of the energy of sunlight acting upon a most wonderful process in green growing plants, photosynthesis.
Primordial atmosphere of earth contained HUGE quantities of carbon dioxide, as well as ammonia, methane, and water vapor, plus some amount of sulfur compounds. Only as the earth cooled sufficiently so that water vapor could form liquid water, did the complex chemical reactions take place that would one day give rise to self-reproducing life forms.
These primitive life forms did not by themselves use oxygen to maintain their existence, but when life forms that could evolve oxygen and carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water came into being, the atmosphere of earth began to change.
| Introducing free oxygen in the atmosphere containing ammonia and methane caused the oxidation of these two compounds, resulting in free nitrogen and even more carbon dioxide, plus an increasing quantity of water as both liquid and water vapor. This highly reactive element also caused a change in the nature and distribution of the microscopic life forms, into aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms.
The aerobic bacteria then continued their conversion of the content of the atmosphere, and to some degree the composition of the surface waters, slowly arriving at the approximate composition of the biosphere today. The hellish conditions that once existed on the surface of the earth had been converted to the living conditions that exist today, and the dimensions of that system greatly dwarf the feeble efforts of mankind to significantly alter it in any way, shape, form or manner.
Get with the program, Bill Nye the Science Guy. Actually STUDY this science of which you so proudly boast.
Like I say to Liberals all the time - Stop breathing and die. Do your part to help the carbon footprint.
And he looks like a child molester to me.
Bill should blame obunghole for setting the example that waterfront property is just beachy to buy even in these days of GlowBulllWarning:-)
Well he is a dick
Inherit the earth. Jeez, they’re going to be very wealthy
Yeah, kinda. I dunno, I might like to have a beer with Billy. Let’s see how many it takes to get him to betray that whole camping trip on a hidden body cam.
He’s just weird. Sad.
Bill Nye the Lying Guy
His degree is actually Engineering.
He is a mechanical engineer who doesn’t know diddly squat about climate change.
