Bill Nye the Mis-Information Guy

Will he ever get one of these interviews right? Don't hold your breath.

The man knows nothing about meteorology or climate. Nothing.

Nye calls the Louisiana rainstorms "hard to forecast" when they were very well forecast. This blog started talking about it six days before the storm began!

Nye blames climate change for the flood. Flooding is getting less bad in recent decades!!!
He then calls the CNN meteorologists (even though no one asked him), "climate change denier meteorologists." Unlike CNN's meteorologists, Nye has no, zero education in meteorology or climate.

So, here is what is occurring in the United States' climate in recent decades:
  • Tornadoes? Down.
  • Hurricanes? Way down.
  • Floods? Much less damaging (see above). 
  • Rainfall? Up in the Farm Belt.
  • Growing season? Longer.
If this is what global warming is going to do for us, what's not to like?!

Every time CBS or CNN has Nye on the air, it is a factual debacle.

ADDITION: From NPR (who else) earlier today:
From the article:
But Sadiye agreed that the moral bar for a second child is much higher. The couple is "one and done." Any more children will come through adoption.
Travis also argues that someone who doesn't feel that deep longing to procreate is morally compelled to think twice before having any children at all...
But if his idea seems like a last-ditch Hail Mary play, he wouldn't disagree.
"The situation is bleak, it's just dark," he says. "Population engineering, maybe it's an extreme move. But it gives us a chance."
So, repeating the above, here is what is occurring in the United States' climate in recent decades:
  • Tornadoes? Down.
  • Hurricanes? Way down.
  • Floods? Much less damaging (see above). 
  • Rainfall? Up in the Farm Belt.
  • Growing season? Longer.
If that sounds "bleak" to you, perhaps you need to brush up on your vocabulary!
