Perfect: Fake scientist and obsequious CNN anchor use manufactured stat to mock ‘climate change deniers’

Bill Nye was interviewed by CNN’s Carol Costello on Friday, and the man who accepted a ride on Air Force One to go to Florida to help Obama warn about the dangers of carbon emissions was grilled… about how awfully stupid people who disagree with him are.

From Newsbusters:

On the May 29 edition of CNN Newsroom, Carol Costello brought on Bill Nye “the science guy” (who is not a scientist) to lecture conservatives about the supposed importance of climate change. Prior to the interview Costello introduced Nye as someone who is “ready to fight the haters,” and resorted to the usual liberal talking point: “Before we begin, I just want to say 97 percent of scientists say climate change is real and much of it is driven by man, so let’s go on.”

It was a tough interview for Nye, but he held his own even after being challenged by an anchor parroting a manufactured talking point to produce nothing but platitudes that are more worn out than his bow tie.

At issue was blowback Nye received from this:

Because floods in Texas never happened before “climate change” kicked in.

Having worked at a network-affiliated television station for 20 years and getting to know a number of meteorologists during that time (not just at my station but others), I can tell Nye that the majority I talked with with haven’t been “instructed by management” to avoid promoting “climate change,” but rather they didn’t hawk that sham because they believe people like him are full of BS. There’s a reason Al Gore doesn’t engage in open debate on this topic, and it isn’t because he’s shy.

I think Nye, et al, know that, because this entire interview played out like a swan song for incessant attempts to gin up public panic:

It’s fun (read: pathetic) watching these people pretend they don’t blame every weather anomaly on “climate change.” They even blame the lack of anomalies on climate change. Example: No Great Lakes ice = result of “climate change.” Too much Great Lakes ice = result of “climate change.”

But the best part of the Costello/Nye interview was when “deniers” were accused of being the ones who are “playing politics” with the issue. Alrighty then:

null

Stop playing politics with “climate change,” Republicans!
