Meteorologists Dismantle Bill Nye’s Alarmist Global Warming Claims

nye sightedBill Nye the “Science Guy” is once again trying to blame global warming for a series of weather events happening around the U.S., but this time meteorologists aren’t having it.

    Bill Nye is a failed comedian, who has found he can make money by joining the phony climate alarmism propaganda machine.

    Bill Nye is the kind of person that inventors of bicycle helmets had in mind with something that turns a geek into a super geek the minute they put their lid on .

    There is a massive void in the media for anyone that is a credible scientists, such that they have turned to hiring comedians.
