SCIENCE GUY ANTI-SCIENCE, ANTI-FREE-SPEECH
According to Bill Nye, the popular children’s science entertainer, the time for debate is over. “We know exactly why the climate is changing–it’s human activity!” he said in an interview at Salon. According to Nye, climate realists, whom he labels derogatorily “deniers,” must be silenced in order to motivate individuals and government to fight climate change. “[Get] the deniers out of our discourse,” Nye said. “You know, we can’t have these people–they’re absolutely toxic. And so part of the message in this book is to get the deniers out of the picture.”
Nye himself denies at least one simple fact at every turn: Climate alarmists have been wrong and climate realist proven right. Climate models say global temperature should climb right along with the rise in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, yet temperatures fell while emissions rose from the 1940s through the 1970s. For the past two decades, while CO2 emissions rose, global satellites show temperatures have been in a holding pattern.
Climate models predicted more intense hurricanes, yet for nearly a decade the United States has experienced far fewer hurricanes than the historic average, and they have been no more powerful than previously experienced. Sea-level rise has slowed, polar bear numbers have increased, Antarctica is gaining ice, the Arctic is back to average ice levels for the decade, and crop production continues to set records year over year. Each of these points contradicts predictions made by IPCC and other climate alarmists.
