Bill Nye, a mechanical engineer who markets himself on television as the “Science Guy,” regularly champions the cause of climate change, which he teaches to children.
In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Nye talked about his belief that “climate change deniers” need to get out of the way — figuratively and literally. While he and other “scientists” teach the next generations that people are the reason the climate is changing, citizens must contribute major amounts of money through the Paris Climate Accord to make sure that millions don’t perish as a result of melting ice caps and devastating storms.
In the article, Nye talked about the word “theory” as it applies to science. “The word ‘theory’ is a special thing in science,” said Nye, as he put on his teaching voice. “Do you know what the special thing in science is? You can make a prediction. A theory is a system of thought that provides a prediction you can verify by observation and experiment. As the saying goes, the climate’s changing, whether you believe it or not, and we’ve got to get to work on this.”
Nye went on to say, “I was born in the U.S., I went to engineering school in the U.S., I got my engineering license in the U.S., so I’m all about the U.S. And I want us to lead instead of not lead. And I don’t know how long you can sustain things if everybody hates you around the world.”
To that end, he noted that we’re going to have to wait until older people “age out” and can’t speak up about the fact that man-made climate change theories threaten life on Earth as we know it and have been promoted by people who aren’t actually scientists.
Last month, an opinion piece was published in the Cherokee Tribune pointing out that people like Nye are perpetuating a real “climate change hoax” – by inciting fear through iffy research and unfounded claims – according to the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, which put out a pamphlet called Why Scientists Disagree About Global Warming.
“When I assert that climate change is a hoax, I am not saying that those who deny climate change are hoaxers, but that those who promote it are,” wrote Melvyn Fein, a professor of sociology at Kennesaw State University. “The global warming partisans, who scoff at those who question their Chicken Little attitude, are the real deceivers.”
The “Science Guy” says that people are afraid of climate change, but that it’s not the people who fear the predicted catastrophes, it’s the people who don’t believe that changes in the climate can be controlled by politicians.
He explained, “It just sounds like people are afraid. And the people who are afraid, in general, — with due respect, and I am now one of them — are older. Climate change deniers, by way of example, are older. It’s generational. So, we’re just going to have to wait for those people to ‘age out,’ as they say. ‘Age out’ is a euphemism for ‘die.’ But it’ll happen, I guarantee you — that’ll happen.”
Nye’s latest book, “Everything All at Once: How to Unleash Your Inner Nerd, Tap into Radical Curiosity and Solve Any Problem,” discusses climate change, personal success, and other societal issues.
