Bill Nye wants global warming deniers to die

Matthew Vadum author image / /   2 Comments

The scientifically illiterate “Science Guy” Bill Nye says the argument about climate change is over and it’s time to drag warming skeptics through the street to the gallows.

Well, Nye didn’t quite say that, but he is looking forward to everyone who doesn’t see eye-to-eye with him on anthropogenic global warming to get six feet under in a hurry.

Nye told the Los Angeles Times:

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 isn’t the only public figure to go bonkers over “denialism.”

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s (D-R.I.) wants the Department of Justice “to consider filing a racketeering suit against the oil and coal industries for having promoted wrongful thinking on climate change, with the activities of ‘conservative policy’ groups an apparent target of the investigation as well.”

    Dear Bill — recognizing that your warming theories are as much religion as anything else, one can only hope that the younger population actually develops some critical thinking capacity along the way, and aren’t the conformist mental sheep you are counting on. Anyone with the slightest bit of critical thinking should be on a constant state of alarm at alarmists like yourself, who have been as close to 100% wrong with Erlich presented his Malthusian nonsense, assuring us that within decades the earth would run out food and other essentials. There’s no way you will live long enuf to witness how stupid your religion really is, which is one of the reasons you can be such a zealot about it. The evidence of global warming — or whatever name you have creatively adjusted to deal with the non-evidence — is sparce, for sure. The probability of a global cooling makes considerably more sense, once you get beyond the leftist group think. Do you guys all take the same pills? If it is such rigid science, then how can it be science? And if it really were science, why do you act as if it is religion — and all non- believers should suffer the wrath of …of…well, the elitist gods?

      Well said. I am a physicist. Ignoring earth bound sources of heat (volcanoes and hot springs, e.g.), 100% of energy available on Earth comes from solar radiation. Part of this energy is stored in plants, whose later decay can be burned (coal,wood and oil e.g.). The total of energy expended by a year of human activity is minuscule compared with the energy delivered to Earth in a single day by the Sun. Global alarmists ignore variations in solar activity not because it is unimportant but because such variations do not support their theory of anthropogenic cause. Mr. Gillespie said “…the prospect of global cooling makes more sense….” He is correct, but global cooling not only “makes sense.” It is a fact. Every Ice Age derived from repeatable changes on Earth of renergy radiated from solar activities. Each recovery to “normal” average temperatures occurred long before the invention of coal-fired power plants and other man-made devices. There were no SUVs to induce recovery from Ice Ages. Another example shows that alarmists treat climate change as a religion is their insistence that carbon dioxide is a pollutant. Actually, carbon dioxide is an elemental requirement of all life on Earth. Animals exhale carbon dioxide and plants breath it in while discharging oxygen, through photosynthesis. Without carbon there could be no plant life. Without plant life there could be no animal life — no life as we know it.
      Yes, current “deniers” will pass away. So will “climate alarmists,” especially if they can impose their religion on nature.
