Bill Nye, “Not the Science Guy?!”
There’s been a lot of talk about whether Bill Nye is actually a scientist. (Also see: Bill Nye, ‘The Jail-The-Skeptics Guy!’: Nye entertains idea of jailing climate skeptics for ‘affecting my quality of life’ (Exclusive Video)
Here’s what left-wing climate activists at Salon magazine had to say: “Bill Nye is not actually a climate scientist. He is a former mechanical engineer turned television entertainer, and now professional edu-tainer.”
In addition, Nye was NEVER invited to participate in a panel discussion with Gov. Sarah Palin and others at the Capitol Hill premiere of Climate Hustle on April 14th at the House Science Committee.
Despite a swirl of media and online uproar to the contrary, CFACT indicated from the very beginning the panel was going to include a “special video appearance” by Bill Nye. See CFACT’s March 31 press release on the event here
Variety magazine’s national article on the event added to the confusion when, at first, it inaccurately reported that “Bill Nye was scheduled to appear.” A later version corrected the error.
Other media outlets comically distorted the panel event. The warmist Inquisitr outlet claimed in a bold headline: “Sarah Palin VS. Bill Nye Showdown Cancelled, Scientist Backs Out of Global Warming Debate.”
Other promotional materials about Climate Hustle’s May 2nd national one-night theater event did not distinguish between those appearing in person and those on video, since EVERYONE will be on video in theaters!
So to sum up, Bill Nye may do a great job teaching kids about magnets, but climatologist Dr. David Legates was the only climate scientist heard from during the Capitol Hill panel, and Nye was never invited to attend in person.
‘Doin’ the Climate Hustle’ – Is ‘global warming’ destroying the Earth?! ‘Watch Climate Hustle on May 2 and decide for yourself’ – And, just to be clear, that’s “hustle” as in “scam, con, rip-off, swindle,” not the best-forgotten dance craze from the late 1970s. Global warming activists would have you believe that the earth is being destroyed by those who don’t believe the hype.
