Bill Nye Blames Global Warming For Devastating Floods In Northern Cali
dailycaller.com ^ | 1/11/17 | Michael Bastasch

Posted on 01/11/2017 12:03:24 PM PST by ColdOne

Bill Nye took to Twitter to blame man-made global warming for flooding across Northern California that claimed at least three lives over the weekend.

Nye, who rarely misses a chance to link extreme weather to human activities, suggested California’s flooding meant we’d be better off not pulling out of the United Nations Paris agreement to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

President-elect Donald Trump promised to “cancel” the Paris agreement the Obama administration signed in 2016. The Senate never voted on the agreement.

Bill Nye is a freaking idiot.

This weather stuff runs in cycles. It happened before, and will happen again. And has for thousands of years.

I recall that we had a long drought in the late 1970s to early 1980s here in the SF Bay Area. Lots of restrictions on water use, couldn’t water lawns, wash cars etc. Followed by severe rainstorms (1982 or thereabout) that caused flooding, and it ended the drought. At the time I lived in San Bruno, and had to cut a trench around my house to divert flooding from behind my home out to the street, stopped the water coming into my garage from the back. South SF had lots of flooding downtown that damaged property. They’ve since mitigated it with diversion canals.

There is no global warming. However, there are gullible warners like Bill Nye.

Really? California gets more winter storms when the Earth's climate is not during a solar maximum period. You notice every time we go away from solar maximum or there is a major volcanic eruption (e.g., Mount Saint Helens in 1980, Mount Pinatubo in 1991 and Eyjafjallajökull in 2010) California has way above-normal rains?

I got to the Bay Area in the early 70’s, and...it used to rain like this. I don’t recall the years. So you get a big whompin’ rainstorm once in a while. Ooooooooh.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pineapple_Express

Early in 1862, extreme storms riding the Pineapple Express[2][3] battered the west coast for 45 days. In addition to a sudden snow melt, some places received an estimated 8.5 feet of rain,[3] leading to the worst flooding in recorded history of California, Oregon, and Nevada, known as the Great Flood of 1862. Both the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys flooded, and there was extensive flooding and mudslides throughout the region.[4]

sadly, it will remain a drought as the state has redefined "drought" as "not enough reservoir capacity to meet the requirements of an increasing population". The feebleminded worshippers of bureaucracy will never admit they pray to a false god.

My kid just started an engineering job at an outfit that is literally studying the sun and has been for decades.

His boss think AGW is a complete joke.

These are actual solar scientists and engineers who actually know what they are talking about.

Bill Nye is a lunatic who just likes to listen to himself speak. I’m sure the drought was also caused by AGW.

Scientifically, if the problem was caused by an effect, the solution cannot be driven by the same effect.

Or maybe its his stint as SpeedWalker or appearance in a porno-film late mid 80s - yeah I think I recall that correctly now I've got to go look it up and see if its true - buzzfeed method, both would confer bona fides upon him.

Sad

You’ve gotta love this global warming bullshit; the recent droughts in California were the result of global warming and now the rain is the result of global warming. In the tiny little dysfunctional minds of the left and the Eco-Nazis, EVERYTHING is the result of global warming!

Wait a minute, I thought it was to blame for the drought. Which is it, does Global Warming create drought or too much water?

Yup. He did. Was driving through the Santa Cruz mountains when I heard him say it on (of course) NPR.

Almost ran off the road laughing.

Same road is bad messed up today because of....too much rain last night.

I think he was a decent enough engineer...developed some landing gear stuff for Boeing. But he also developed training films for them - which probably gave him the tv ‘bug’. I don’t blame him for taking the more exciting path.

However, I’m a licensed engineer myself...and I guarantee his engineering pedigree gives him zero specialized knowledge about the planet’s climate.

He’s just a celebrity know nothing like the others.

Holy f’ing crap, what a stooge. No dummy, it’s called El Nino, a weather pattern that the Spanish missionaries observed and named hundreds of years ago. This is actually a regular occurrence here between periods of drought.

My neighborhood in Portland, Oregon today will have a total of 18” of snow. I am stuck in Rancho Mirage (where it has been unusually cool) and can’t get home. If this is the result of global warming then we’re going to freeze to death.
