Is This a Joke? Democrats Turn to Bill Nye the Science Guy for Climate Change Advise – Oh the Lunacy
Bill Nye The Science Guy, who happens to be the proud owner of a BS degree from Cornell University, is now being tapped to speak out about climate change. It’s the sort of thing that comes off as a joke and we have no idea how people are supposed to take this. Why was this man called in front of Congress, in a world where people are more distrustful of the government than ever before?
It’s like they want people to turn against them at this point. The Free Beacon has more:
“Democrats invited former children’s science TV show host Bill Nye to a House Homeland Security subcommittee to testify about climate change and how to introduce policies to “change the world.”
Nye likened the effort needed to combat climate change to that of the United States’ effort during World War II. He advocated for more government involvement, including regulating greenhouse gas emissions and investing in nuclear energy. Citing Texas’s February winter storm, he argued the free market fails to protect people from climate change. Instead, proponents of combating climate change need to take political power and elect people who “accept the science,” he said, adding that voter suppression could stop the United States from taking action.”
If you have seen the past rants from Bill Nye, you were probably taken aback a bit by some of the rants that he has gone on about climate change before. Here’s what he had to say during a past appearance on Last Week Tonight With John Oliver:
“Here, I’ve got an experiment for you. Safety glasses on. By the end of this century, if emissions keep rising, the average temperature on Earth could go up another four to eight degrees. What I’m saying is, the planet’s on f—ing fire.There are a lot of things we could do to put it out — are any of them free? No, of course not. Nothing’s free, you idiots. Grow the f**k up. You’re not children anymore. I didn’t mind explaining photosynthesis to you when you were 12. But you’re adults now, and this is an actual crisis, got it? Safety glasses off, motherf—ers.”
This is what the man really thinks about those who are skeptical about climate change. Guess what? Bill Nye is not really qualified to even be making those kinds of statements. He may have convinced people that he knows everything there is to know about science but that’s not the case at all. He’s just a mechanical engineer who likes to play pretend. We guess that Bill Nye The Mechanical Engineer does not have quite the same ring to it.
As you would have expected, these types of facts do not mean a single thing to the one and only AOC. She’s using him as a means of pushing her progressive agenda. AOC is tapping Bill Nye for one reason and one reason only: he calls himself the Science Guy. She’s also banking on positive nostalgia from the older millennials who listen to every word that she says.
It’s emblematic of how the Democratic party approaches most things. They do not care about actual policies, they just hope that they can use celebrities to vaguely fumble towards something resembling a coherent point of view. Bill Nye the Science Guy being given the chance to speak in public like this was the most predictable thing that they could have done, if you really stop to think about it.
This man does not need to be around children, if we are being frank. Nye might freak out and fly off the handle at any moment, if he does not get his way. He thinks that climate change is one of those obvious things that he can just yell at people over and they will simply do what he wants. That’s the Democrats in a nutshell and that’s probably why they are loving this man so much.
