Video: Tucker Carlson clashes with Bill Nye over climate change

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson went head to head Monday night with Bill Nye the ‘Science’ guy and it was like watching the school nerd beating up on the bully. Except in this case the nerd was Tucker Carlson and the bully was Bill Nye.

The subject was #Climate Change, a subject Nye claims to be an expert on, and throughout the nearly 10-minute exchange, he couldn’t answer even the most basic questions posed by Carlson.

Carlson began by pointing out some recent statements Nye made regarding climate skeptics, saying they suffered from psychological delusions and should be jailed.

Carlson then went on to ask Nye a very simple question: To what degree is human activity causing climate change?

Carlson wanted to know if it was 100 percent, or 74.3 percent, and “since it was ‘settled science’ please tell our audience how much is based on human activity?”

Depends on what degree means

Nye first argued about what the word degree meant and said we should be concerned about the speed at which climate change is occurring.

“Instead of happening on time-scales of millions of years, or say 15,000 years, it’s now happening on a time scale of decades, even years.” Nye seemed to forget the Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age, both of which lasted centuries and long before SUVs.

    Bill tries to argue “cognitive dissonance” on the part of people he calls “climate change deniers”. I”ll get to that momentarily…

    First he attempts to pull the bait-and-switch maneuver of setting up his the assumption that all or most skeptics deny that the climate is changing altogether, something Tucker quickly refutes this by stating that the climate is ALWAYS changing. This Nye simply ignores.

    I would argue that the whole “cognitive dissonance” thing is EXACTLY what the LEFT has done to promote this massive scam. They so desperately want to validate their dreams of wealth and income redistribution along with global governance, that they have twisted the very fundamentals of science and manipulated grant funding to achieve THEIR predetermined meme.

      Speaking of cognitive dissonance, what about the people who vote for liberals and their energy policies, then cheer for a warm winter that cuts their electricity bill in half?

    Tucker did a great job of not letting Nye weasel from basic questions .
    When pressed on his opinion about the percent of climate change attributed to humans
    Nye finally tells Tucker … well if you must have a number it is 100% .
    This is where Nye ‘ s magician training comes into play . Like an illusionist
    what Nye revealed that the earth has a fever promoters have done is created their own definition of climate change . Their definition of climate change is not what the common everyday person thinks is climate change. Which is the type that has been occurring for millions of years . That is why he was extremely reluctant to address the question . The slight of hand illusion was thus revealed and the con exposed .
    They like to bully and intimidate based on a term they created to ensure anyone who didn’t drink the cool-aid could be attacked . That is why they never want to debate .
    Sooner or later they knew the con-job definition of climate change would be exposed
    and that is what Tucker did because he would not back down or listen to the
    evasive bullshit Nye was trying to use as part of the climate change illusion .
    Global warming alarmists rely on the scientific illiteracy and weasel word language to trick the public and much of the MSM . They had to repackage the ” global warming ”
    hype into “climate change” because they knew the scary predictions of catastrophic warming were being proven to be a fraud and goofy climate model projections were grossly overstating warming by hundreds of percent.
    No wonder they can’t debate . Tucker by design , good reporting or just a good sniffer of bullshit flushed the climate illusionist out in the open .
    The scary climate illusionists are busted . At least Nye can return to comedy .

    “”Nye blurted out ‚Äú100 percent‚Äù followed by: ‚ÄúIf that‚Äôs the number you want.””
    This clearly demonstrates the current practice in climate science.

    If Bill Nye is a science guy then have him answer this question…

    The UN IPCC claims that a doubling of CO2 from 400ppm to 800ppm
    will cause global temps to rise by about 2 C degrees.
    The increase of 400ppm is 1 part in 2500.
    How can 1 molecule of CO2 “trap” enough “heat” to raise the temperature
    of the other 2499 molecules of N2 and O2 by 2C degrees?

    Bill Nye is an actor first and foremost whether its comedy or something else .
    Don’t expect an answer Edmonton Al . They are to chicken to debate the science
    that’s why they like to pretend it’s “settled ” .
    Isn’t it a bit odd to the MSM that the front and centre cheer leaders of the scary global warming industry are politicians and a comedian/actor . Even the climate scientists who make broken hockey sticks or “adjust ” temperature data are such wimpy cowards they will never produce their data for replication or debate .
    Most of the MSM are so scientifically illiterate they don’t even know what questions to ask .
    We can only hope it keeps warming and CO2 levels don’t drop for either scenario would be a problem for life on earth .
