In the interview Bill Nye accused climate “deniers” of suffering from “cognitive dissonance” and “psychological delusions.”
However, when Tucker pressed him on a few very basic questions, Nye didn’t have a coherent answer and instead tried deflecting repeatedly and then ended the interview with a bizarre and ominous statement about President Trump.
Also in the interview Tucker referred to previous statements by Nye where he agreed that climate skeptics may need to be jailed for their views. This was in reference to an interview Climate Depot’s Marc Morano had with political activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. back in 2014, wherein RFK Jr. laments over the fact that there are no current laws on the books that would “punish” global warming skeptics.
He then went on to blame climate skepticism on the Koch brothers who he called “treasonous.”
What’s most strange about RFK Jr.’s remarks is that on many other issues he is very libertarian minded. One such issue is the topic of vaccines. Despite the deluge of media talking heads calling RFK Jr. and others “anti-vaccine” for simply calling for safe vaccines, RFK Jr. has stated many times on the record that he is not anti-vaccine. However, he is a supporter of vaccine choice and understands that people shouldn’t be forced to do something or believe something that the government wants them to believe. But to hear him talk about climate skeptics, you’d think he doesn’t believe in choice at all. I guess it goes to show that many people only believe in real freedom of choice when it’s something they believe in.
I suppose anytime someone disagrees with a position it’s just easier to blame the Koch brothers, or assert some grand conspiracy. However, the real conspiracy lies in sweeping history under the rug. I’m not sure what percentage of climate change alarmists think the so-called ‘skeptics’ believe that the climate doesn’t actually change at all, but I’m guessing it’s pretty high. I would think the skeptics were crazy too if I thought they believed that. But that’s what’s most interesting because they’ve stealthily changed the actual debate paradigm. Instead of debating if, or what percentage, man’s role plays in the changing of the climate, the debate is whether or not the climate actually changes at all. How stupid is that?
Anyone who has two brain cells to rub together knows the climate changes and has always changed. But what people don’t seem to understand is that the same fear mongering that is happening today in relation to climate change was happening long ago. In a recent hearing California lawmaker Tom McClintock grilled Christy Goldfuss, a top climate advisor to then President Obama, on the climate change hysteria that continues to rage amongst democrats, the media and academia.
Rep. McClintock read a Washington Post article that included bold predictions and most of the same rhetoric we hear today from alarmists such as “the Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer” and “seals are finding the water too hot.”
He asked Goldfuss if this was the crisis she was referring to, for which she stated that she wasn’t familiar with this particular report but that this is in fact the crisis she and others were trying to address. McClintock then said that she was probably not familiar with that specific report because it was a Washington Post article from November of 1922.
Yes, they were fear mongering back then too.
My history is a little hazy but I don’t remember there being SUV’s and Los Angeles’s smog filled skyline in 1922. Today, climate change has all the hallmarks of a fanatical religion. As MIT professor Dr. Richard Lindzen puts it “Global Warming has become a religion,” and “a surprisingly large number of people seem to have concluded that all that gives meaning to their lives is the belief that they are saving the planet” and “people with no other source of meaning will defend their religion with jihadist zeal.” For the well-meaning, useful idiots of society, their crusade is their jihad against all those that dare oppose them, but for the political high priests that sit above them, selling the idea of man made climate change is their holy tithing cash cow.
It’s hard to know if people like Al Gore actually believe their own B.S. but regardless, they’ll never stop pushing it, no matter how many times they get exposed, because at the end of the day, like most things, it’s all about the money and they’ve simply invested too much in the lie to turn back now.
