Up to his old tricks, making up unsubstantiated, scary forecasts.
"By the end of this century, if emissions keep rising, the average temperature on Earth could go up another four to eight degrees," Nye said. "What I'm saying is the planet's on f***ing fire."
metmike: Right, Bill, the temperature went up 1 deg the last century and the planet is greening up and this will lead to temperatures going up 4 to 8 times faster and the planet being on fire.............based on? What exactly is this based on?
Based on trying to scare people by lying to them.
From the same link:
"Oliver, though, seems to be in support of the Green New Deal: "It is a non-binding resolution that very briefly sets out some extremely aggressive goals, including achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions, meeting 100% of the country's power demand through clean, renewable and zero-emission energy sources and creating millions of good, high-wage jobs in the United States ... The whole Green New Deal is just 14 pages long."
metmike: Oh,oh guys, your Green New Deal leader sounds like she's changing her tune...........maybe after realizing it can't work in this universe.
metmike: With regards to Bill Nye.
Gifted and very charismatic actor. Knows alot about many scientific topics.
Nye presents himself as somebody that understands how the atmosphere works and uses his name recognition to bamboozle people.
How do we know that he really doesn't understand the atmosphere?
He was tested on live television and amazingly, showed to us that he doesn't understand the Ideal Gas Law(PV=nRT). That means zilch to all the non atmospheric scientists reading this.............but it would be like a medical doctor, not understanding what blood pressure is in humans (-:
"Whether you believe Belicheck or not, one statement in the above video is patently, totally, completely, unabashedly, embarrassingly false. It's Nye's claim that, " . . . to really change the pressure in the ball, you need one of these - the inflation needle."
"In one flip comment, Nye undermines the cool conversation we've all been having while totally discounting a whole lot of physics. The fact is you can change the relative pressure in the ball by changing the temperature of the gas inside, by changing the properties of the the material the ball is made of (getting it wet and potentially making it more stretchy, perhaps), and changing the pressure of the atmosphere outside the ball (can you say "barometer," Mr. Nye?)"
"It's possible that none of these factors explain away DeflateGate, but to unimaginatively dismiss them the way Nye did utterly undermines his cred as a science educator. Really?!?!? All it takes for him to go totally anti-science on us is to be a fan of the Seahawks?
"Please, Mr. Nye, step back, think about what you did for a moment, and then try again."
Nye has turned into an angry activist that has completely abandoned authentic climate science to push the agenda. He is great at repeating really, really scary things like his ludicrous temperature forecast.:
Replicating Al Gore’s Climate 101 video experiment (from the 24 hour Gore-a-thon) shows that his “high school physics” could never work as advertised
The most egregious faked presentation in that video was the scene with the split screen thermometers, edited to appear as if the temperature in the jar of elevated CO2 level was rising faster than the jar without elevated CO2 level.
"It turns out that the thermometers were never in the jar recording the temperature rise presented in the split screen and the entire presentation was nothing but stagecraft and editing.
This was proven beyond a doubt by the photoshop differencing technique used to compare each side of the split screen. With the exception of the moving thermometer fluid, both sides were identical.
The reason why I took so much time then to show this chicanery was Mr. Gore’s pronouncement in an interview the day the video aired."
His specific claim was:
“The deniers claim that it’s some kind of hoax and that the global scientific community is lying to people,” he said. “It’s not a hoax, it’s high school physics.” – Al Gore in an interview with MNN 9/14/2011
