Bill Nye targeting kids with climate change hype in new show

Netflix is launching a new show confidently titled “Bill Nye Saves the World” where Nye will explain complicated topics like global warming to kids as he understands it.

The show wants to illustrate how #Climate Change impacts everything from politics to pop culture, but from his “special blend of lab procedure” and quirky guests.

He also wants to refute what he considers are non-scientific claims by industry leaders, politicians, and religious leaders. By doing that, he’ll be “saving the world.” There’s just one problem: Nye is a not a scientist and his track record is dreadful.

Since ending his first show in the early 2000s, Nye has been on a quest to convince as many people as he can that climate change is the world’s greatest threat. But schoolchildren aren’t interested in demagoguery, but rather “how and why” things tick.

And parents may be wondering if a climate activist should be spreading his gospel to their children. He also brings with him over a decade of controversial assertions that may prove daunting to overcome.

Epic fail

In a heavily publicized experiment, Nye tried to demonstrate how carbon dioxide (CO2) warmed up the atmosphere. He put a thermometer in a sealed container filled with excess amounts of CO2.

He then used a heat lamp to warm up the container and watched as the temperature rose. That, he said, was proof that CO2 is overheating the planet.

But what Nye proved wasn’t CO2’s response to radiation like the sun, but rather the “convective” properties of any gas.

    Indoctrination via propaganda and junk science is all true of Bill Nye. But we fool ourselves if we believe it is all aimed at our youth. Unfortunately, gen-Xer’s and millennials are mostly devoid of adequate science education, and ignorant of scientific methodology. Bill Nye is the perfect media culture emotional image these people need to form opinions.

    Back in 1968 our science teacher filled a glass jar with water and sugar then added some yeast. She sealed the lid and set the jar on her desk. Watch what happens, she said. Of course the water turned cloudy and after a few days, the bottom of the jar was covered with dead yeast. She told us that this was the future of the human race. We will consume everything then die in our own waste. Fifty years later we have Bill Nye tricking the wee’uns.
