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.
