Skip to comments.Bill Nye “the Science Guy” and Rep. Marsha Blackburn don’t see eye to eye on climate change

What we have to do is look at the information that we get from climate scientists, she said. As you said, there is not agreement around the fact of exactly what is causing this.
Mr. Nye, who recently debated evolution with creationism proponent Ken Ham, said politicians like Ms. Blackburn are exacerbating Americas problems by casting doubt on scientific evidence.
So what I would encourage everybody to do is back up and lets agree on the facts. Would you say that the Antarctic has less ice than it used to? he said, adding later, You are a leader. We need you to change things, not deny whats happening.

Antarctica had record ice coverage this year
“Would you say that the Antarctic has less ice than it used to”
Bill Nye ‘the Anus Guy’ doesn’t dare mention the north pole, where ice has grown rapidly. Blackburn should just point out that science does not depend upon the opinions of childrens’ entertainers.
Marsha Blackburn = Conservative, pro-life, 2A, small government, no AMNESTY, etc
Not just me Bill, but the SCIENTIFIC FRIKEN DATA says, there is MORE ice you idiot!
“A new record: the most sea ice in Antarctica in 30 years by extent and by volume”
Arctic ice is on the low end, but within normal ranges, of historical extent and thickness as well.
Good Lord, You can swing a dead cat on the internet and find pictures of US and British submarines surfacing at the North Pole from 1959 and beyond due to no ice.
These a$$hats just pandering to fools. The fools who believe them.
$hit's not good for my blood pressure......
Real science guys stick to their specialty.
Gollee Mr. Science, could you tell me how no increase in the average earth temperature in the last 17 years is melting every thing. Teach me oh wise one.
He held up the wrong graphic.

|Woo hoo!! And we're now over 59%, looking for 60!! Go, FReepers!! Thank you all very much!! We can do this.|
Its sad what passes for science..Mr. Nye does no original work and no original thinking. .he is a teacher in the worst context of the word just regurgitating a book..rote repeating of party line is not thought..even if you believe 100% party line get to via independent thought so you can defend it fro your own reason
I’ve always though that Marsha Blackburn was none too shabby. Why don’t we hear from her more often? I thought she was pretty good in this exchange.
I like how she pointed out that neither her nor the dork she was debating were climatologists. She kneecapped his only feeble argument.
“Casting doubt on scientific evidence”?
That’s what real scientists (not some media hack like you) are supposed to do, dumb@ss. You wouldn’t have people trying to poke holes in something like the Theory of Relativity if they just accepted everything like gospel.
These arguments remind me of Sports Radio talkers and Sports TV Talkers telling who and how the respective basketball, baseball, football, etc teams are going to do in the next X years.
I forgot, did any AO WARMER tell us about the Atlanta Ice Storm?
Polar Cap Supposed to Disappear by 2013 is 60% Larger than 2012 September 16, 2013
she often speaks for the GOP congressmen..
shes from the Nashville area and has been in Congress for years..
shes a Sarah Palin
The only reason why anyone remotely cares what he thinks is because all of the kids that watched his show in the 90s turned into the ultra lib hipsters that have resurrected him as some sort of supreme scientific authority. He would be in the poorhouse if it wasn’t for that.
Thank goodness I grew up with Mr. Wizard. A real science guy that would never whore himself like this for a buck.
First of all we know that Bill Nye is not a creationist, so he must believe that the earth is about 4.5 billion years old. The AGW crowd uses 1951 to 1980 as to what the average earth temperature should be. How scientific is it to take a 30 year slice out of 4.5 billion years to arrive at a fact. That would be like taking 50 people (out of 7 billion) and determining the average person’s likes and dislikes.
Bill is a voracious anti-Christian and a hard core lefty overall.
But at least he’s not a stupid as John Kerry who just made a connection to a volcano eruption in Indonesia to man caused Global Warming. Apparently humans are also causing volcanic eruptions along with atmospheric warming?
Bill Nye is SELLING an INCORRECT POV.
You are correct. Nye is a hate filled leftist and there is not a whole lot of “science guy” about him.
I assume that bow tie spins at high RPMs when confronted with GoreBull warming deniers.
He is such a leftist dooooosh.
She was terrific. I’m going to check out more about her.
Bill Nye = Speed Racer. It’s on YouTube...how can ANYONE take this fraud seriously. He’s a comedian. Seriously.
Now that you mention it he does look like a 70 year old pajama boy, err grand dad.
I liked Beakman better.
Not just me Bill, but the SCIENTIFIC FRIKEN DATA says, there is MORE ice you idiot!
Well I certainly won’t be putting my faith in his religion either.
He sounds like an arrogant gasbag that has an opinion on everything.
“You’re just trying to create doubt”. This is what passes off as science. He didn’t want to talk physics at all, he wanted people to believe and was all but ready to start an inquisition for anyone who would try to “create doubt”.
Nye recently held up a picture of Mann’s discredited “hockey stick” graph. This is the type of “evidence” he believes in.
I thought he looked like a 70 year old Sheldon.
His strangeness and bow tie are mistaken for intelligence, and intelligence is mistaken for honestly and integrity. He’s perfect for the left.
1tim6:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
And he was funnier on Seattle's local "Almost Live" comedy show in the early '90's with the science schtick, than he is now.
The so-called ‘consensus’ of scientists that support the idea man caused global warming apparently haven’t heard the news that the earth has been cooling for the last 18 years. The real problem is that a good Marxist knows that in a pure communist society the crops are always bountiful, the air and water are pristine and it’s 70 degrees year round. Facts, like global cooling and the murder of hundreds of millions by Stalin, Mao, Castro and Ho never happened.
The human caused climate change Zombies don’t want their government meal ticket to be eliminated by real science that does not tailor its findings to attract tax dollars.
Bill Nye is a human caused climate change Zombie because he is a whore for the government dollar.
All she had to ask him was “If all this ice is melting why aren’t Florida beach towns seeing water levels rise? In fact, Mr. Nye, why aren’t you buying land a mile from the beach?”
I don’t understand how someone can get elected to congress or get million dollar talk shoes yet can’t argue with an idiot liberal.
From what I can find on the interwebs, Bill Nye only has a Bachelor’s degree, in Mechanical Engineering. He got it at Cornell, so there you go.
Marsha called it when she said he’s not a Climatologist, just an actor on TV. I LOL’ed.
I’m not worried about global warming.
It’s the rapidly coming ice age that worries me.
She should have put her carbon footprint right up his skinny ass.
Bill is not a scientist. He has an engineering degree just like me.
He has never done research, much less published research for peer review. He has never had to defend his scientific research, etc. He’s an entertainer, who is taken way too seriously by the sheeple.
Its sort of like Al Sharpton is a ‘Reverend’.
Ever notice that when the Liberal Media wants a “debate” on global warming, they never bother to contact this guy:
I’d love to watch a debate on the subject between Dr. Spencer and “The Science Guy.” But I’m also guessing that Bill Nye, media whore that he is, would never debate a genuine scientist like Roy Spencer.
It seems Bill needed help, as well:
“Gregory allowed the discussion to proceed despite some terse exchanges, but said he had to step in when Blackburn claimed that scientists lack sufficient evidence to say that carbon dioxide increases in the atmosphere have had a significant environmental impact.
“Well, hold on, I just have to interrupt you,” Gregory said. “I’m sorry, congresswoman, let me just interrupt you, because it’s not — you can pick out particular skeptics, but you can’t really say, can you, that the hundreds of scientists around the world who have looked at this have gotten together and conspired to manipulate data?”
The representative argued that “there is not consensus” that greenhouse gas emissions have had a major effect on global warming.
“But there is consensus,” Gregory responded. “Within the scientific community, there is consensus.”
I guess Billy Nye the Single Guy couldn’t hold his own in the debate...
I don’t like climate change.
I preferred it much better when the climate never changed, when it rained chocolate drops and the wind never exceeded a mild breeze and always smelled like fresh baked pie...Back when it was never too hot and never too cold.
“If all the rain-drops were lemon drops and gum drops
“Oh what a rain it would beeeeeee.....”
With marmalade sky’s...
And that's against a female politician, the least likely to know anything at all about science short of a female 3rd grade public school teacher! It's extremely rare for anyone pushing global warming to get as "scientific" as to actually use a measurement like ppm when describing carbon. Usually they just say "scientists all agree that we have global warming therefore vote Democrat". But no one at all is discussing how 1 molecule out 2500 is able to cook the other 2500. Then to try to bring into the discussion the concept of a self correcting system where warmer water actually increases plankton's consumption of carbon... NO that'll never happen. We just get pictures of polar bears, smoke stacks, melting ice, etc. No science ever!
Marsha Blackburn is a hero in these parts (Nashville). She was very instrumental in our tax revolt that occurred here back in the late 90’s. She was referenced extensively in a book that was written about it entitled “tax revolt” by Phil Valentine. Good stuff. Those were heady times. :)
