With Thursday marking the 75th anniversary of the Allied invasion along the northern coast of France known as D-Day, news organizations have been offering special coverage with incredibly powerful, substantive, and fitting tributes to both those lost that day, since then, and those remaining veterans. But then there’s Wednesday’s Hardball on MSNBC and guest Bill Nye the Science Guy comparing the need to fight climate change to D-Day.
It’s hard to follow a stunt like setting a globe aflame and proclaiming the world is “on fucking fire” because of global warming, but Bill Nye “The Science Guy” managed in it a CNN podcast interview.
With less theater and showmanship than his “heartfelt,” expletive-laden performance on HBO’s Last Week Tonight, Nye still made outrageous claims about natural disasters and global warming on Brian Stelter’s Reliable Sources podcast May 30.
The Sunday edition of HBO’s Last Week Tonight With John Oliver focused heavily on climate change, so it featured an appearance from Bill Nye the Science Guy, who had some harsh words for conservatives skeptical of the Green New Deal throughout the episode, concluding with a profanity-laced rant aimed at critics of the Green New Deal.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews brought on liberal Bill Nye the Science Guy during Tuesday’s show to lambast the President for tweeting about the liberal rush to promote climate change despite what’s been thought of as a once-in-a-lifetime polar vortex bringing record cold to large swaths of the country. But the craziest part of the three teases plus seven-minute interview was a question from Matthews about whether the influx of illegal immigrations from Central America has to do with climate change making that part of the world less desirable.
Each time an end-of-the-world prophecy is delivered -- whether by a self-deluded preacher, a group of politicians or scientists -- we are told that we must believe. Never mind how many of their prophecies have been wrong in the past, this time they mean it. The latest prophecy of doom and planetary extinction comes from a government report authored by people appointed during the Obama administration. This report, and others before it, concluded that Earth is warming, humans are responsible and that we have only 10 years to fix it.
On her 2:00 p.m. ET hour show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur predictably exploited Hurricane Florence to push the left’s climate change agenda and condemn “deniers” in the Trump administration. She brought on liberal environmental activist Bill Nye and ex-Clinton administration official Paul Bledsoe to provide even more alarmist rhetoric.
In the third season of Bill Nye's not-so-humbly titled Netflix series Bill Nye Saves the World, there are an unusually large number of shots taken at religion. Even more awkward are the clumsy attempts at what seems to be outreach to people of faith, they are almost painful to watch they're so bad.
New York Times movie critic Andy Webster made the new documentary Bill Nye: Science Guy a “Critics Pick,” and the online headline sold it hard: “‘Bill Nye: Science Guy,’ a Portrait of a Fighter for Facts.” A photo caption gushed: “Bill Nye has a new mission: challenging climate-change deniers.” With jail time, apparently, though the Times doesn’t get into that.
Wednesday on CNN Tonight With Don Lemon, the host brought on a former children’s television host to push the idea that the recent hurricanes and earthquakes were the result of manmade climate change. What made the segment even more ludicrous, was that Lemon pointed out that actual climate scientists have said these natural disasters aren’t due to climate change, but he continued pushing for that as the “root cause” anyway.
“The Obamas won an Emmy!” At the Creative Arts Emmys in Hollywood, the real winner was the liberal agenda, as represented by CNN, the Obamas, climate change, drag queens, and the Women’s March.
Celebrity climate extremist Bill Nye thinks the solution to dealing with “climate deniers” might be to just wait for them to “die” out. Talking to the Los Angeles Times on Thursday, he mocked “people who are afraid in general” as older and added, “Climate change deniers, by way of example, are older. It’s generational. So we’re just going to have to wait for those people to ‘age out,’ as they say.”
The journalists at CBS This Morning on Monday conducted a fawning interview with environmental activist Bill Nye. Rather than offer any hard questions, Charlie Rose offered softballs such as asking, “Are other countries more curious about science than we are?”
