Bill Nye Debating Climate Change With Congresswoman

bill-nye-climate-change-debate.jpg

Happy President's Day. Let's all go around the room and say who our favorite president is. Mine is Benjamin Franklin. And to you Canadians -- Happy Family Day. Let's all go around the room and say who our favorite family is. Mine in yours. This is a video of Bill Nye arguing climate change with smug looking Tennessee congresswoman Marsha Blackburn. Obviously, neither's opinion is swayed, but it was fun to watch them argue. Like listening to a couple fight at the table next to yours at a restaurant. Oh shit, I think she just joked on his penis!

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Yesman and Adam, who both claim they've touched Bill Nye before but I don't believe it.

    There is far more pressing matters that require our funds, chasing ghosts by forcing hard earned taxed trillions of dollars to keep feeding a myth of a bottomless pit, while making a few soulless scumbags filthy rich! When in the end it all comes down to a Fukushima'd planet and God forbid a big meteorite.

    Ever heard of a book called 'What I tell you three times is false?'

    Look it up, it exists.

    Oh, and...look! You said something three times!

  • DeksamTorrac

    Oh It is? I'll fix that thanks. Good cause every time I posted it and came back to this site, what I had said was gone, couldn't find it anywhere, so I reposted it, again and again it disappeared, So i posted it again, I thought it was censorship. But glad to see it was not, cool. thanks again!

    The best part of this is watching Bill Nye's face when Blackburn talks.

    debating climate skeptics is like playing chess with a pigeon. He knocks over the pieces, craps on the board, then flies off to declare victory to his friends. -Scott D. Weitzenhoffer (originally about creationists)

    Climate change always seems to create a lot of extreme feelings either way and tends to cause everyone to become angry.
    I am not going to try to incite anyone, but for anyone to say it is 100% true or 100% false cannot be correct. We are burning unbelievable amounts of fossil fuels and have reduced vegetation and that has to have SOME effect. The problem is that scientists are pretending like they know what effect it will have and they are consistently wrong on any prediction. In the 70s, they looked at industrialization and concluded that "global cooling" would ruin the world. In the 90s they said "global warming" was going to ruin the planet. Specifically, they said that CO2 is directly proportionate to temperatures and that we will reach a "runaway greenhouse effect" that would be irreversible. Those predictions were incorrect. In fact, they learned that CO2 levels were FAR FAR higher in the past and no "runaway greenhouse effect" occurred. In fact, ice ages occurred AFTER these super high CO2 levels. Now they changed the theory to "climate change" so that any time it is not 80 degrees and sunny they can be "right" and they have stopped making specific predictions or they make predictions with huge ranges. i.e. "sea levels could rise 6 inches to 6 feet in the next 50 to 100 years". Well, 6 inches in 100 years is nothing.
    Please remember that pretty much all the carbon that is on earth has been here for billions of years. The carbon that is locked away in the coal/oil/gas was free at one point until biological activity trapped it. Therefore, burning it is actually releasing it to the natural state before life changed the environment. Remember that life has ALWAYS changed the environment since way before people evolved. In fact, scientists believe that free oxygen in the atmosphere is here only because life caused it to be.
    Furthermore, realize that the Earth is constantly in flux and is constantly going through climate change.
    We should be careful to ruin the way we live based on shaky science.
    I for one will not change my lifestyle until a scientists predicts an unlikely event and the event comes true.

    Lol. I think GW found a little honey pot. All he needs to do is post something about global warming or guns and he gets some major traffic!

    Stupid, stupid, stupid. While we let these people run our planet we let them run it into the ground,

  • People like her give me no faith in humanity!

    She doesn't make a single constructive argument that doesn't come back to lining her own pockets in the short term. She clearly has spent a lot of time researching facts that support her ridiculous argument, it baffles me that she didn't accidentally stubble upon the overwhelming facts that support climate change.

    The climate change debate aside; it make obvious long term sense under any scenario to find clean, renewable and sustainable sources of energy. And plan for disaster scenarios like flooding, drought etc... Why wouldn't you?

  • Tony

    Is this the kind of person you vote in to positions of power in America ?

    Let's put the specific issues aside for a moment, and ignore her poor mathematics.

    I'm genuinely curious. Aren't you worried that people like this have such an enormous responsibility ?

  • DemiGosh

    Yes, yes we are. Without getting into too many details about the intricacies and idiocracies of the United States political system, understand that many people don't even know how these people got to the positions they are in, and worse, don't understand how to remove them.

    The same people who control the press control the politicians, and any time there is a real issue they all point the finger at the one person people pay attention to, our figure head, the president. So every 4 years we either praise or blame this singular individual for everything effecting the country, meanwhile congress has absolutely no recourse for their action or inaction.

    Voting for the president gets more fanfare than any known sporting event to help ensure voting for our representatives by state is quietly overlooked, especially since they have no term limits. We are a country guided by distraction and sustained by ignorance. However there are those of us who realize what is happening, it's just hard to stop.

    I'm gonna click that just so I can read the no doubt GLORIOUS comment section on Youtube.

  • Shawn Haywood

    I disagree with Mr. Nye. But I also disagree with the smug faced congresswoman. It's not about nations rising to power through science. It's not about regulations and policies; certainly not about going by the book. It's about EVERYONE saving the earth's future, through whatever baby steps we can, even if we don't get to see the end results of our actions before our time on this soaring space rock.

  • Altior

    Wow. XD It appears everyone on here is an Atheist Democrat. XD

  • WTFITSAY

    What I got from her talking is that she's really just interested in what's best for the economy instead of what's best for the environment. What a shit head.

  • Imadethisnameup

    Y`all need to get laid, then maybe you can quit crying about the fuckin` ozone for two seconds and move on with your lives as adults.
