Bill Nye Paid $35K To Tell Students To Dismiss Global Warming ‘Skeptics’

nyeBill Nye the “Science Guy” was paid a handsome speaking fee to tell Rutgers University students to dismiss those who would question the consensus on man-made global warming.

Nye, who gave the commencement speech at Rutgers over the weekend, told graduates to “challenge those who dismiss climate change,” according to NJ.com. Nye also reportedly said the “scientific consensus on climate change is as strong as the consensus that smoking causes cancer.”

“Climate change is a real deal,” Nye told students in his speech. “So, hey deniers — cut it out, and let’s get to work.”

Rutgers paid Nye $35,000 to speak at this year’s graduation at its New Brunswick campus. Nye was also given an honorary Doctor of Science degree during the ceremony — which means he’s an actual scientist now, or something.

But the university may consider Nye’s speech money well spent since students raved about it, NJ.com repored. Students chanted his name before his speech, and were taken by his call for them to solve global warming.

“It’s a heavy topic, but it’s something that was necessary to address,” Jesse Bagley, who earned a degree in science and biomedical engineering, told NJ.com. “He’s right. We all have an opportunity to make a choice as far as that goes, so it was something that we needed to hear.”

“I learned from Bill Nye probably more than any other science class because he is so awesome, and I was was so excited to see him speak today,” echoed Michael Bruchert, who got a journalism and media degree.

Nye has been a major critic of those who are skeptical of man-made global warming. For Earth Day, Nye flew with President Barack Obama on Air Force One to Florida’s Everglades to highlight how global warming was damaging such environments.

Ironically, Nye’s Air Force One trip emitted the same amount of carbon dioxide as 17 passenger vehicles would in an entire year — more than 9,000 gallons of gasoline.

    Apparently Mr. Nye is the ignorant guy. Like the flat Earthers, he is clinging to believe in something that has been thoroughly disproven. Maybe he should listen to those he calls “deniers”. He might learn something about the realities of climate change, such as we have had no global warming since 1998 and there isn’t a shred of evidence that CO2 has ever caused global warming. Unless, of course he believes the UN mantra, as voiced by one of their top people: It’s not about climate, it’s about the redistribution of wealth and the destruction of capitalism.

      Where do you get this evidence? What tells you “it’s not about climate, it’s about the redistribution of wealth and the destruction of capitalism?” Do you have solid facts? Have you ever realized that many of the oil companies pay lobbyist to deny climate change, so people will continue to buy their products? If you can convince me, you will have just created a denier. If not, well, maybe you can learn something.

        DO YOU HAVE SOLID FACTS ???

        You can’t even prove there is a Greenhouse Effect.

        That in itself is a FATAL ERROR dismissing your ravings.

        Have you ever looked up who’s funding the liars you listen to ?

        If anything, the people you obviously hate are funding the argumentation you’re advancing and endorsing !

          My question for you is, do you have facts? All you can say is that this is false. Where are [i]your[/i] facts?

            Jund, just stop. I appreciate what you’re trying to do but you can’t convince people who believe everything people tell them, no matter how ridiculous it is.

            You got it backwards. It is you who will not research and deduce for yourself.

            Ever hear of Thermal Infrared Spectrography ? Look it up with regard to that hated co2. It conclusively proves the Greenhouse Effect Hysteria to be a LIE.

            I know you won’t look it up. Your attitude is that of a lazy know-nothing.

            Show me where TIS proves that the greenhouse gas effect is false. And yes, I looked it up.
            Now I have a challenge for you. Look at graphs of carbon levels for recent eras. You’ll see that CO2 levels vary sinusoidally (and yes, I do know what that means). That is, until recent years, where it has skyrocketed. Almost every scientist (97%)believe that the climate is indeed changing for the worse. Give me evidence and I will gladly discuss it with you.

            JayPee, I harbor no resentment for you. I wish you the best in life. Call me names if you will, but it just makes you look bad.

            Proof positive you don’t know what your talking about. You repeat the 97% lie. That only makes you look bad.

            Go back and continue your homework. The co2 spectrograph is not substantially different than o2, n2 and ar. If co2 is a ghe, then also must be o2, n2, and ar. Maybe we should eliminate all 4 from the atmosphere.

        What climate change? There has been no change for almost 19 years. Which according to many alarmists, has invalidated the CAGW Models and refuted the “hypothesis”.

        No mention of “reducing” energy use, just redistribution. Which has been the goal from day one.

        Now as for the claimed Co2 warming predicted by models. There simply is no evidence for this as this new PEER REVIEWED Paper shows.

And it has not changed despite half a doubling from 280 ppm.

        Yep undetectable after a half doubling of the effect of CO2 above 280 ppm. What’s 2X undetectable again, so we can get our bearings on a full doubling ?

        Any other climate parameters where the effect is above the square root of F-all ??

    Well at least the pretend geek is smart enough to not hang himself with idiotic statements like the earth has a fever or the Arctic will be ice free in next summer or kids won’t know what snow is .

    “Climate change is the real deal “.. who knew ? Was someone teaching that it doesn’t change ?

    Rebranding global warming to climate change in mid campaign to hide the fact the earths temperature is virtually unchanged since those graduating kids were born .

    When they knew the global warming scam had run out of hot air, and what ever credibility it had, they send out people to make sure the rebrand language is used.

    Same overblown scam different name .

    If Nye is supposed to represent a scientific perspective lets see his published scientific research .

    Yes climate change is real as it has been for millions of years but you don’t need a university degree or Nye to figure that one out ..Maybe Grade 4 .

    Save the 35 $$Grand or build some wells in Africa next time .

    This line may be more profound than you intended. Aside from the Nye’s speaker honorarium, just imagine if [i]just half[/i] of the multiple billions of dollars diverted into the global warming scam in the last 20 years went toward tangible improvements for third world health and infrastructure problems!

    We rarely discuss lost opportunity costs of mega-funding a politically motivated hypothesis.

    Bill Nye is a cheap sh*t

    Hillary Clinton is paid ten times that to stand in front of a crowd and lie.

    Barack O’bama gets to stand in front of carefully picked stooges who give an air of endorsement.
