Unfortunately, Bill Nye is an advocate (for catastrophic global warming) masquerading as a scientist. All you need to know about his knowledge of atmospheric science can gleaned be from his answer in the above interview: that the recent Northeast Blizzard came from Africa!
No, it didn't.
Here is a graphic from NOAA and the Associated Press from Friday morning showing the two systems -- over the United States -- combining to form the blizzard. Both came from the west.
I traced the path of the two storms in the still image above. Now, here is the time lapse of the two storms and you can see both came from the west across the U.S., not Africa.
Mr. Nye owes weather science an apology and should stop holding himself out as an expert on atmospheric science.
