First, the video.
Let us not forget, as was mentioned, that Bill Nye said skeptics of global warming suffer from delusions of cognitive dissonance. He also suggested the skeptics of global warming might be better served as being imprisoned not unlike war criminals.
“You’re using the language of politics. You’re not a scientist as you know, you’re a popularizer.”

Bill Nye, the science guy, is open to criminal charges and jail time for climate change dissenters
by Valerie Richardson
Bill Nye “the science guy” says in a video interview released Thursday that he is open to the idea of jailing those who deviate from the climate change consensus.
Asked about the heated rhetoric surrounding the climate change debate, such as Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s previous comments that some climate skeptics should be prosecuted as war criminals, Mr. Nye replied, “We’ll see what happens.”
“Was it appropriate to jail the guys from Enron?” Mr. Nye asked in a video interview with Climate Depot’s Marc Morano. “We’ll see what happens. Was it appropriate to jail people from the cigarette industry who insisted that this addictive product was not addictive, and so on?”
Of course. But here’s the money shot:
“In these cases, for me, as a taxpayer and voter, the introduction of this extreme doubt about climate change is affecting my quality of life as a public citizen,” Mr. Nye said. “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.”
Already, under BBC protocols, one cannot disagree with GW/CC and find yourself employed by Auntie Beebe.
BBC staff ordered to stop giving equal air time to climate change deniers
by Jessica Chasmar
The BBC’s governing body has ordered staff to stop giving equal air time to climate change deniers and other scientific experts with a “marginal opinion.”
The BBC Trust published a progress report analyzing the corporation’s science coverage and found it remains prone to “over-rigid application of editorial guidelines on impartiality” that resulted in the BBC giving “undue attention to marginal opinion,” The Telegraph reported.
Note to so-called “scientists,” Bill Nye and the Religious Left (the Religious Left are those persons who believe in “global warming” — now transmutated to “climate change” because it’s so much more comprehensive — . NOAA lied about their global warming statistics, skewing them purposely. Why? Because cash money is attached to these studies and there is competition for this cash provided by GOWPs.

Climate change whistleblower alleges NOAA manipulated data to hide global warming ‘pause’
by Valerie Richardson
Former federal climatologist John Bates blasts 2015 NOAA study as other scientists defend its conclusions
The climate change debate went nuclear Sunday over a whistleblower’s explosive allegation that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association manipulated data to advance a political agenda by hiding the global warming “pause.”
In an article on the Climate Etc. blog, John Bates, who retired last year as principal scientist of the National Climatic Data Center, accused the lead author of the 2015 NOAA “pausebuster” report of trying to “discredit” the hiatus through “flagrant manipulation of scientific integrity guidelines and scientific publication standards.”
In addition, Mr. Bates told the Daily [U.K.] Mail that the report’s author, former NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information director Thomas Karl, did so by “insisting on decisions and scientific choices that maximized warming and minimized documentation.”
“Gradually, in the months after [the report] came out, the evidence kept mounting that Tom Karl constantly had his ‘thumb on the scale’ — in the documentation, scientific choices, and release of datasets — in an effort to discredit the notion of a global warming hiatus and rush to time the publication of the paper to influence national and international deliberations on climate policy,” Mr. Bates said Saturday on Climate Etc.
Second note to Bill Nye and the Religious Left: climate does in fact change. I can look out my window and see it.
The weather in my area changes frequently; sometimes by the hour. In Fornicalia where I live, there has been a drought for the past seven years. Last winter in 2015/2016 the El Nino was supposed to even things out because, allegedly, El Ninos bring wet weather. It was a dud.
This winter, Fornicalia is now mostly out of the drought (definitely out of the drought in Northern Fornicalia where I live in the Sierra Nevada mountains) and the Sierra Nevada snowpack is 150% of normal. In the meantime, there is no snow in Chicago.
Climate does indeed change. And the record keeping on weather has documented only a minuscule amount of planetary history at best, to the point where I submit that computer models must be constantly updated due to new information and input. We cannot yet make adequate prognostications under the most ideal of conditions. You cannot convince me that much of what we see is in fact cyclical and natural.
I have, bottom line, yet to be convinced beyond the shadow of any doubt that “climate change” — which any rational human being realizes occurs — is obviously anthropogenic in nature. Because for any argument in favor, I can show you an argument against.
I submit that we as a species are not nearly as smart as we think we are, when it comes to Planet Earth. We make a rather elitist and arrogant assumption that we can truly know and predict actions of this third rock from the sun.
