Piers Morgan and Bill Nye Speculate on Climate Change’s Role in Deadly Okla. Twister
The Blaze ^ | May 21, 2013 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 05/21/2013 2:58:29 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

During CNN’s live coverage of the deadly Oklahoma tornado on Monday night, host Piers Morgan and Bill Nye speculated on the possible role of climate change in the disaster.

“As a scientist, when you hear about the size, scale, power, devastation of this tornado, what does it tell you about the ongoing debate about climate change?” Morgan asked his guest.

Nye said climate change has to be considered after a catastrophic weather event like the devastating tornado in Oklahoma. He also claimed 10 of the last 12 years are the “warmest years recorded.”(continued)

Dead children still trapped in a school, and these a-holes use the tragedy for left wing, junk science political purposes.

Bill Nye is a COMEDIAN...he was part of a ‘Saturday Night Live style’ sketch show out of Seattle called ‘Almost Live!’ Look up his ‘Speedwalker’ videos on YouTube ...funny stuff, but you’ll NEVER take this guy seriously as an expert on anything after watching...

I posted something very similar earlier this morning on another thread, except I was speculating as to when Obama was going to do it. He’s waiting for the talking points buildup from his hens scattered around the media to soften up the audience I guess

I am getting so damn sick and tired of these ghouls doing a two-step on the corpses of the innocent to advance their agenda whenever something tragic occurs.

“I am getting so damn sick and tired of these ghouls doing a two-step on the corpses of the innocent to advance their agenda whenever something tragic occurs.”

I always put myself into the mind of someone I’m trying to understand. In the case of liberals, I try not touch anything as they drip alienesque goo. Certainly you shouldn’t drink the Kool-Aid while there.

Imagine you’re touched by the tragedy of children dying. You want to make their deaths meaningful. Someone who dies without promoting a liberal agenda is truly dead. But someone who dies promoting an agenda becomes immortal. Trevyon Martin, for example, will live forever. It’s rather like (or not) Christians baptizing the dead.

Gee Bill Nye and Piers Morgan the melding of great minds - how irresistible must be their conclusions. I do hope they keep it for posterity so we may all learn from their collective wisdom !!!

“As a scientist, when you hear about the size, scale, power, devastation of this tornado, what does it tell you about the ongoing debate about climate change?”

As a scientist, I have great skepticism in the climate changing power of a small change in the concentration of a trace atmospheric gas. As a scientist, I don't interpret the ubiquity of the phrase "because of climate change" in scientific literature as definitive demonstration of climate change. As a scientist, I'm still waiting on empirical proof that humans can cause world-ending climate change.

As a scientist... just sayin...

Any weather event is now tied to “Climate Change”

No Tornadoes? Climate Change.
Huge F4? Climate Change.

I wish someone would shut these idiots up.

Permanently.

Just like Newtown, they can’t wait to dance in the blood of dead children.

I hope they like Hell.

There’s nothing new here.

Tornadoes have been flattening prairie towns and crops for as long as they’ve existed.

Charles Ingalls lost at least one crop every season on Little House on the Prairie to tornadoes, hail storms and the occasional swarms of locusts.

Thanks 2ndDivisionVet. If they'd had even more time to fill, they'd have linked the disaster to the sequester, the failure of gun control, and the outcome of the Gosnell trial.

No these fools do not have any sense of decency or common sense. Liberals use any event which happens to push liberalism. In this case, the liberal cause is global warming. So, they are pushing global warming from this tragedy. Ditto Hurricane Sandy. Sandy Hook was used to push gun control. Three Mile Island and Fukishima were used to push the anti nuclear power agenda. And so it goes..........

Morgan can’t resist standing on the corpses of dead children can he?

Btw, this was an EF-4....not even the most powerful tornado....and as far as I know the first major one of the season.

The twister was caused by Unicorns. Republicans and their ‘scientists’ want large cash grants to study Unicorns. Anyone who disagrees will be investigated by the IRS

Yep, they are even more despicable than the bible thumpers that run out after every bad thing that happens claiming that it is God wrath.

I am sick of people trying to take advantage of events like this.

I have met Bill Nye, by accident, and he is a pompous jerk. My 10 year old points out his faulty logic. He is a “celebrity scientist”.. nothing more than a scrawny, ugly, nerdy, homo celebrity.

No one should listen to this guy.

You can never use isolated weather events on a microscale as evidence for macroscale activity.
