Bill Nye offers global warming hysterics in response to Tucker Carlson, then explains ‘Trump leaks from the inside’

Tucker Carlson interviewed Bill Nye about global warming in the wake of claiming deniers suffer from “cognitive dissonance.” Nye offered up talking points, debunked facts and other hysterics about global flooding.

“The evidence for climate change is overwhelming,” Nye told an open-mouthed Carlson. “So we’re looking for an explanation for why you guys are having so much trouble with this.”

“I think most people are open to the idea of climate change,” Carlson parried. “The core question, from what I can determine, is why the change?”

“So the word ‘degree’ is a word that you chose,” Nye explained. “But the speed that climate change is happening is caused by humans. Instead of happening on time scales of millions of years, or let’s say, 15,000 years, it’s happening on a time scale of decades. And now years.”

“Is it 100 percent caused by human activity, is it 74.3 percent? It’s ‘settled science,’ please tell us to what degree human activity is responsible,” Carlson asked and then continued to interrupt Nye who was rambling and never offering any science to back up the assertions.

Carlson: “You look annoyed that I’m asking these questions, but they’re very basic questions. They’re not denial,” he said.

“100 percent!” Nye nearly yelled. “If that’s the number you want. Humans are causing it to happen catastrophically fast.”

“OK, so, basically, the cycles of climate change,” Nye continued to ramble, “the last ice age we had was tens of thousands of years ago. So, uh, bear in mind that in ancient dinosaur days there was more carbon monoxide, the world was warmer than it is now, there was an inland sea in what is now Wyoming. I understand you have a member of Congress from Colorado used to be underwater and you can go to Dinosaur National Monument to see it, but that was millions of years ago…The rate, the rate is the problem. Now here’s the thing – half of the people in the world live on sea coasts. As we get the ocean a little bit warmer, the ocean is going to expand, and people on the sea coast are going to be displaced.”

“You’re not answering my question,” Carlson correctly stated. “I’m asking you a simple question about the rate of climate change. You said that it would be happening but that rate has been accelerating because of human activity. And I’m asking very simply–”

“The word ‘accelerated’ is an understatement,” Nye interjected. “It’s happening extraordinarily fast.”

“I’m asking you a simple question,” the Fox host pressed. “And because the science is ‘settled,’ I hope you can answer it in simple terms, which is, without human activity would it have taken for us to reach this level of warmth in our climate.”

“It would have looked like it did in 1750. Britain would not be very well-suited to growing grapes as it is today. French wine-makers would not be buying land to the North as they are now. People who plan to run ski resorts would still be able to do it in Europe,” he said.

“You’re using the science of politics. You’re not a scientist, as you know, you’re a popularizer,” contended Carlson.

“So much of this you don’t know. You pretend you know, but you don’t know,” concluded the host. “I’m open-minded and you are not.”

Nye then rambled on about leaks in the Trump White House and how divided they are on climage change.

Nye explained the cognitive dissonance of those who deny climate in the face of undeniable evidence.

“To the deniers out there. I want you to think about what is called cognitive dissonance,” Nye said. “Here’s what we say — there’s overwhelming proof. Proof isn’t even the word. It’s overwhelming evidence. And so, what I believe you’re doing on the other side is you’re suffering from this magic thing — magical thing called The Backfire Effect. When you see evidence that conflicts with your worldview, you just double down on denying it. And we all do it [. . .] but the stakes when it comes to climate change in the world’s population are huge.”

Back in April of last year, Nye stated that “…as a taxpayer and voter, the introduction of this extreme doubt about climate change is affecting my quality of life as a public citizen. …So I can see where people are very concerned about this, and they’re pursuing criminal investigations as well as engaging in discussions like this.”
