Bill Nye Says Old People Must Die For Climate Science To Progress

Comedian Bill Nye “The Science Guy” said Wednesday that the climate change movement can only move forward once the older generation begins to die off.

“Climate change deniers, by way of example, are older. It’s generational,” Nye told the Los Angeles Times in an interview. Nye added that he shouldn’t be too hard on older citizens, however, because he is “now one of them.”

“We’re just going to have to wait for those people to ‘age out,’ as they say,” Nye said, adding that “age out” is a euphemism for dying. “But it’ll happen, I guarantee you — that’ll happen.”

Nye used the interview to pitch his newest book, “Everything All at Once: How to Unleash Your Inner Nerd, Tap into Radical Curiosity and Solve Any Problem,” which lengthily discusses climate change, among other issues.

The former children’s show host has also received plaudits from Hollywood for his newest television show, “Bill Nye Saves The World.”

The Television Academy Awards nominated the show’s writers earlier this month for an episode suggesting that sexuality exists on a spectrum. The episode raised concern from conservatives and YouTube denizens alike, many of which mocked the show for awkwardly associating social sciences with physical sciences.

The nominated episode contains the music video, “My Sex Junk,” which aired in April on Netflix, featuring actress Rachel Bloom singing a song about transgenders, gay sex and how sexuality is a fluid concept. Bloom’s song appears to lament the fact that humans are relegated to living lives as male or female.

    Yes, as the old and wise die off, “The Cause” will be left to the young and gullible – to those with worthless advanced degrees in areas like Gender Studies who become self absorbed in any leftist meme they are handed. Good job Bill Nye – always looking to the future!

    .
    1811
    The FIRST Scientific LINK of Global Warming and Human Activities.
    .
    1958
    The Legititmate Scientific Community, in 1958, gave a Research Study & Warning t President Eisenhower
    about the unrestrained & MASSIVE Dumping of TOXIC industrial waste gasses &
    chemicals into our atmosphere & the climate warming Changes it causes.
    Complete with tumultuous weather changes: Cold events, Heat waves, Droughts, Rising Sea levels, & Flooding Rain events!

    Global Warming Science PROJECTED (Spot on, accurate) Changes likely over 50 yrs. into the future (to 2015)
    PROJECTED Climate changes:
    .
    1. AS PROJECTED:
    ALL Surface digital weather station measurements register RISING Global TEMPERATURES .
    Particularly during the last 20 years. 16 of the 17 hottest years have occured since 2000.
    .
    (2100+ (NASA NOAA) Ground Stations around the world)
    .
    (independent News/TV/Radio collected.
    Tens of millions of human measures / yr. from well over 30,000 private, independently owned & operated
    Digital Weather stations around the world.)

    ALL Satellite measurements show that the troposphere is warming…& verified by HUNREDS OF THOUSANDS OF
    digital weather balloon launches around the world.
    ALL Satellite measures of the stratosphere is cooling for 52 straight YEARS, as Projected by anthropogenic global warming
    & as projected spot-on accurately BASED ON GLOBAL WARMING THEORY & numerous computer models in over 2 dozen countries.
    .
    (Strotospheric Cooling “CANNOT” be explained by ANY NATURAL CYCLE !
    …If direct solar warming is responsible for Climate on earth,
    how can 1 atmospheric layer be warming while the layer closer to the sun, with a vastly larger surface area, is actually cooling???)
    .
    If Deniers/Skeptics are to be believed…the heat comes only from the sun.
    then the Stratosphere Is FIRST IN LINE to WARM from the sun…how could IT be cooling and the next atmospheric layer, the Troposphere, be warming ….? ?
    As projected by Global Warming Theory:
    Temperatures at the ocean surface & at various ocean depths show * warming as far down as 3000 meters (after thousands of years cooling)
    The additional fresh water from melting glaciers has slowed the ocean currents, cooling the N. Atlantic and altering weather for years to come.
    AS projected:
    Sea level rise gravitometric measurements of Greenland and Antarctica show net ice loss. HEADLINES: “….“The loss of ice from West Antarctica
    between 2009 and 2012 caused a dip in the gravity field over the region,”
    writes the ESA, whose GOCE satellite measured the change. Apparently, melting billions of tons of ice year after year has implications….”

    National Snow & Ice Data Center registered the ARCTIC AND ANTARCTICA set Satellite Historic Low Ice LEVELS…2016
    Anarctica melted so heavily a slushy lake covered 300,000 SQUARE MILES….hard to believe with an average temp. of 50 BELOW.
    As Propjected:
    Ice loss in the Arctic is dramatically accelerating setting low ice records 2015, 2016 etc.
    **continuing a 40-80 year trend ! Acceleration of melting glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica, particularly within the last few years.
    China reports a stunning 18% loss of Ice Packs and Glacier Ice in recent years, Citing Accelerating Global warming & Black Carbon build up
    from Coal electric generation locally & around the world.
    Asian Mountain populations are in near panic as, today, they can see, year after year, their Snow Packs and Glaciers receding
    …which is their primary source of Water for drinking and irrigation.
    AS Projected:
    Poleward migration of species: (42% of ALL species have been dislocated)

    The Pine Beetle, for example, has been confined to much warmer southern latitudes for tens of thousands of years by Frigid Northern Climates.
    Today, That Beetle is found north of Fairbanks, Alaska !!
    MORE LODGE POLE PINE will be felled by the Beetle than FIRE & LOGGING combined.

    AS Projected:
    Increased hurricane & Storms (numbers &/or intensity) as expected from rising sea surface temperatures
    & expanded surface area, with expanding evaporation.
    (10 of the 15 Busiest Hurricane Seasons have occurred since 2000.)
    Accelerating decline of glaciers throughout the world
    Montana’s glacier national park had 150 in 1910 ((& in 1958 when I was there)) today, only 25 remain ! (soon to be 24)

    ( at a time when Skeptics & Deniers claim we are Plowing into a new ICE AGE, that we will be knee deep in it by 2030 ! ?)
    As Projected:
    The rise of the troposphere altitudes
    .
    As Projected:
    Rise in temperatures at greater depths in the permafrost
    As Expected:
    Rapid expansion of thermokarst lakes throughout parts of Siberia, Canada and Alaska
    .
    Russia reports that atmospheric temperatures in Siberia are rising at Twice the world wide average increase.
    Changes in ocean circulation as predicted by climate models, for example, with temperatures rising more quickly overland
    AS expected: Disintegration of permafrost coastlines in the arctic
    AS expected: Changes in the altitude of the stratosphere.
    ALSO, AS expected: An energy imbalance-the earth is receiving more energy than it emits (Hansen 2005) Verified.
    every monthly compilation of energy readings registers the same imbalance
    increasing energy staying within the earth’s atmosphere rather than escaping to space.
    (These findings are verified by detailed satellite data from 3 different nation’s satellites)
    .
    Poleward movement of the jet streams
    SOURCE: (Archer 2008)
    SOURCE: (Seidel 2007)
    SOURCE: (Fu 2006)
    The 270 Largest Fresh Water Lakes in the world are ALL rising in temperatures, TWICE as fast as the atmosphere.
    Algae Blooms and mass fish die-offs have doubled.
    .
    Flooding Rain Events have far more than doubled. (Regional Flooding Rains have tripled )
    .
    Deserts world wide are expanding.
    .
    The Number of droughts has more than doubled AND the Square Miles affected have more than doubled.
    .
    Heat Waves have more than Doubled.
    .
    The world is greening, primarily at higher altitudes on mountains and in far northern/Southern latitudes
    & far southern lattitudes as snow is replaced by vegitation. So let’s remember that Snow/Ice Reflects I.R. Heat back to space
    but vegitation absorbs MORE heat on Earth.

    "....Robin Bell, an Antarctic researcher at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Institute at Columbia University who was not involved in the study. “Who had heard of rain in Antarctica — it is a desert!....”

    " Our ability to analyze and adapt is what makes humans the dominant species on the planet.
    Spitting on that, is spitting on what makes us, us !

    .
    Fewer than a Dozen Coastal cities experience tidal flooding issues in the US in the 1950’s…”….already, more than 90 coastal communities in the United States are battling chronic flooding, meaning the kind of flooding that’s so unmanageable it prompts people to move away.
    That number is expected to roughly double to more than 170 communities in less than 20 years.
    .
    In the 70s,
    when scientists told us that CFCs used in aerosol sprays and refrigeration had punched a hole in the Ozone Layer
    & their continued use would render the planet uninhabitable to humans,
    we listened and A VERY CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN banned them.
    The hole is closing and we’re safe from a world poisoned by ultraviolet radiation.
    HUMANS AFFECT the CLIMATE of EARTH.
    HUMANS can correct CLIMATE CHANGES they have caused.

      Kind of going overboard with rant? Like claiming Roy Spencer says there is warming now (trick wording) means that he never believe that the Earth has been warming since the middle ages but now he believes is absolute crap. Not even a good try. I can do better.

      There is not time to respond to your massive post, but the following examples show just how valid the entire thing is.

      “16 of the 17 hottest years have occured since 2000.”
      The warmest three years in the last hundred years were all cooler than 87% of the years in the last ten thousand years. The earth is naturally returning its normal condition, which is warmer.

      The NOAA ground sensor data is useless because they have eliminated sensors in cooler locations such as rural and higher altitude locations. This creates false data that the earth is getting warmer than it is.

      Historically the satellite data showed that the climate models were running too hot. Recently the satellite data has been “corrected” to agree with the models.

      We have had a dramatic decrease of hurricanes in the United States despite predictions that they would increase.

    Toddlers are the only people the scary climate clowns can now scare .
    Nye is acknowledging the harsh reality of the earth has a fever crash . Even Gore has moved on to greater and greater insults to fan the flames but to know avail .
    Yes maybe the next generation can be the dupes for some other earth Armageddon con game after all memories are short .
    The likes of Gore and Nye gave it a good shot but the hot air balloon has sprung a leak spiraling to the ground .
    Let’s hope actual climate scientists can restore their credibility .

      Scientists are not pleased with M. Mann. I’m reading Mark Steyn’s book “A Disgrace to the profession” . Mann’s stick trick and his lame defense of his work has earned a book full of ridicule. He might have fans, but scientists, even Warmists, shun him and his graph.
      Cheeky Steyn says his book is volume one.

    Nye is wrong . Younger people have had the earth has a fever BS in their face most of their lives and have tuned it out .
    No ice free arctic , no drowning polar bears just a greening earth .
    When promoters like Nye and Gore use scary global warning(climate change ) and are getting more and more desperate people see through it . Neither of these guys are even scientists .

    Unfortunately I have been around long enough to “Have been there, done that.”

    The same thing was thought about many issues in the 1960’s and 1970’s. However, as the younger generation becomes older, they tend to adopt the beliefs of those who were older.

    When it comes to climate change, what the real world does will have the most influence. Unfortunately there is a better than 50% chance we will enter a mini ice age. If we are lucky enough to avoid that, the real world will continue to be further and further from the climate models.

    If ” dying ” is so necessary,
    why doesn’t Bill Nye die ?

    By his own good example
    he should finally excuse himself
    and just plain
    EXIT.

    Why has he not done this despite
    his wish and advise for others ?

    Because he is a typical leftist pig
    who thinks he has the wisdom to rule
    over other ” lesser ” people’s lives.

    But, of course
    only supremely wise people like

    BILL NYE

    know that .
