    Bill Nye The Science Guy is getting roasted online for his TikTok video touting the Biden administration’s “Build Back Better” agenda as “cool” — and featuring a cameo from President Biden himself. “Consider the following… #infrastructure is #cool,” Nye captioned the more than 1-minute clip Tuesday. The TV scientist is referred to as a “science icon” before he descends into a speech about the recently signed bill, emphasizing the importance for repairing America’s infrastructure and providing funding for climate change. Biden joins Nye about halfway through — and is introduced as “Amtrak Joe.”

Let me be clear: Trump will be president for another four years. Biden will not be president. Yes, I know those are shocking words in these crazy days. I have been approached by many saying, “It’s over…” and “Trump conceded the election…”. Nothing of the sort has taken place. Go back and listen to the videos all the way through. At no point does Trump even mention Biden’s name. At no point...

    **SNIP** "Historic resistance from Democrats, the media and even some Republicans has made your accomplishments even more monumental," Gunasekara wrote. "I am increasingly concerned with the rhetoric from the far-left supportive of Venezuelan-style socialism, government take-overs and crony 'green new deals' that do little for the environment and threaten our economic success." **SNIP** Appearing on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews, Nye said Gunasekara's environmental policies were "striking" given that she and her husband have two young kids who will "inherit the Earth." He noted that these children are going to have to interact with their mother, who has been a...

    Bill Nye wants to remind you of the seriousness of global warming and he's not mincing words. The well known science commentator appeared on "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" on Sunday and put things bluntly while talking about the Green New Deal, introduced by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Ed Markey. Nye wants you to know, "The planet's on [expletive] fire." "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 [expletive] fire.

    Donald Trump gathered his social and political clan around him at his opulent Mar-a-Lago club in Florida to welcome in the New Year in classic Trumpian style. “It will be a fantastic 2018,” a tuxedoed Trump said, as he entered the gilded ballroom at Mar-a-Lago, accompanied by first lady Melania Trump and son Barron, and predicted the stock market would continue to rise and businesses would come to the US at “a rapid clip”. The US president cited what he considered to be signal accomplishments, including opening the Arctic national wildlife refuge to oil drilling, tax reform and scrapping individual...

    Bill Nye “the Science Guy” said his efforts to convince the public of the dangers of global warming have failed, largely due to a misinformation campaign by the fossil fuel industry.“I am a failure,” Nye told Salon in an interview ahead of a documentary on the Science Guy’s rise to fame.“The United States has now got the head of the EPA who wants to close the EPA,” Nye said, adding his decades-long effort to convince people of the dangers of man-made global warming has been “completely ineffective.”Earlier this year, Nye aired a documentary series on Netflix aimed at adults.

Bill Nye on his climate change education efforts: “I am a failure” “The Science Guy” looks back on his 1990s TV show, and why climate change education has not reflected policy change Between hosting “Bill Nye the Science Guy” and serving as CEO of The Planetary Society, Bill Nye’s career as a science educator means he is also, inherently, an activist when...
  • Bill Nye the 'Fake Science' Guy Gets Schooled by Meteorologist on Hurricane Irma and Climate Change

    Last week, media personality Bill Nye "the science guy" waded into meteorology, claiming that man-made climate change is directly responsible for the strength of hurricanes Harvey and Irma. "It's the strength [of these hurricanes] that's almost certainly associated with global warming," Nye told Dan Rather in a radio interview. "Global warming and climate change are the same thing. As the world gets warmer and there's more heat energy in the atmosphere you expect storms to get stronger." Nye doubled down on this statement. "The more heat energy in the atmosphere strengthens the storms, Dan," he said. "We are all gonna...

    On Monday's edition of 'This Morning' on CBS, "Science Guy" Bill Nye speculated about why so many people skeptical of climate change predictions. Nye said that the Earth could power itself renewably if we had the will to "change everything." Nye says such changes are always taking place: "What I tell everybody, my grandfather went into World War I on a horse. He rode a horse," Nye said. "But nobody rides a horse [anymore]... Everything changed in two decades. So let's change everything. We can do this people. Let's go." Nye also gets a chance to pitch his new book:...

    When uploaded to Netflix, an episode of the educational children’s show “Bill Nye the Science Guy” cut out a segment saying that chromosomes determine one’s gender. The original broadcast of the episode, entitled 'Probability', saw a young woman explain (at 9:07 below): “I’m a girl. Could have just as easily been a boy, though, ‘cause the probability of becoming a girl is always 1 in 2,” a young woman says in the show. “See, inside each of our cells are these things called chromosomes, and they control whether we become a boy or a girl.”

    To be fair, Bill Nye didn’t actually say people should be eliminated by their governments to save the environment and the planet. He did say that there are too many people and parents, at least in the developed world, should be punished for having “too many” children: The season finale of pop scientist Bill Nye's new Netflix show "Bill Nye Saves the World" suggested that the government should punish people who have too many children, for the sake of the environment. "The average Nigerian emits 0.1 metric tons of carbon annually," noted Nye's guest, Dr. Travis Rieder. "How many does the average...

    Here’s the 1996 clip from “Bill Nye the Science Guy” which is currently being censored on Netflix During the original 1996 broadcast of the “Probability” episode of the TV program “Bill Nye the Science Guy,” there was a segment that explained how a person’s gender is determined by genetics.In 2017, Netflix aired a version of this episode in which this segment had been removed.I don’t know if it was Netflix, Nye himself, or some other party that instigated this censorship.Since YouTube has a nasty habit of removing politically incorrect videos, I’m including links to four videos, all of which have the...

    “Useful arts in 18th Century usage would be what we call engineering or city planning or architecture,” Nye said. Nye’s used the argument before to underscore how “unpatriotic” it is to not have the federal government hand out billions of taxpayer dollars to universities, corporations and research institutions. “Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution says the government shall ‘promote the progress of science and useful arts,'” Nye told Vox in 2015 — Vox didn’t correct him or fact check his claim. “So if you’re a politician looking to derail the progress of science, I think you’re not doing your...

    Bill Nye was invited to speak on CNN’s New Day Saturday program for Earth Day, along with May Boeve, the executive director of green action group; and William Happer, a climate change skeptic and physicist at Princeton. Nye was clearly exasperated with Happer’s claims, and annoyed that CNN had invited him. To enthusiastic nods from Boeve, Nye said, “I will say, much as I love the CNN, you’re doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic and not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change.” (CNN is hardly the first media organization to give these...

  • Tucker Carlson Induces Cognitive Dissonance in Bill Nye the Science Guy over Climate Change (video)

    Here is the best (and weirdest) example of cognitive dissonance you will ever see. The set-up is that Bill Nye, an engineer by training, and a proponent of science, is defending climate science on Tucker's show. The first weird thing is that Bill Nye starts by talking about cognitive dissonance being the only reason that anyone would be skeptical of global warming. But he seems to not understand the concept of cognitive dissonance because he believes only the other side could be experiencing it. The nature of cognitive dissonance is that you don't know you're in it when you're in...
