Bill Nye Gets Slammed From All Fronts Over Hurricane Rant

After you lost your house, and everything you own - a lecture from Bill Nye is EXACTLY what you want to hear!

Bill Nye, the “Science Guy” from a hit educational show from the late 90s, and noted global warming alarmist took to the airwaves to describe how Hurricane Irma and Harvey are the fault of man-made climate change.

During an interview with Dan Rather, Bill Nye took pains to explain that Hurricane Irma was caused by people not taking global warming seriously enough.  “It’s the strength that is almost certainly associated with global warming,” Nye said. “As the world gets warmer and there’s more heat energy in the atmosphere, you expect storms to get stronger. You also expect ocean currents to not flow the way they always have. That will make some places cooler and some warmer.”

Bill Nye continued, “We’re all gonna pay for Harvey, we’re all gonna pay for Irma one way or another. So…anyway, the more heat energy in the atmosphere strengthens the storms — as you would expect.”

“Deniers will find a way to show that you can’t connect [Global Warming to] any one storm, but this is probably the future,” Bill Nye told an interviewer at TMZ, “Wouldn’t it be great to be a world leader instead of a sit-on-your-hand-ser?”

However, Dr. Ryan Maue, a well-known climate scientist took to Twitter to needle Bill Nye over scientific errors he stated in his interviews. “The more heat energy in the atmosphere strengthens the storms, as you’d expect,” but “Bill Nye confuses the oceans with the atmosphere.”

Breaking Nye’s narrative over climate change, University of Washington atmospheric scientist, Cliff Mas, published a study on Hurricane Harvey, proving that it was not caused by climate change.  “Hurricane Harvey developed in an environment in which temperatures were near normal in the atmosphere and slightly above normal in the Gulf,” Mas wrote. “The clear implication: global warming could not have contributed very much to the storm.”

Mas’ study continues, “There is no evidence that global warming is influencing Texas coastal precipitation in the long term and little evidence that warmer than normal temperatures had any real impact on the precipitation intensity from this storm.”

Furthermore, the Washington Examiner ran an article published last week, casting doubt on the connection between human activity and the strength of recent hurricanes. “Don’t hold your breath: Even the best meteorologists in the world weren’t able to predict the development and track of Hurricane Harvey until a few days before it hit.”

The Examiner continued, “This is why the idea of climate science being ‘settled’ is so ludicrous, at least as regards the connection between global warming and tropical cyclones. A settled theory makes specific predictions that can, in principle, be tested against observed data. A theory that only yields vague, untestable predictions is, at best, a work in progress.”
