Tucker Carlson And Bill Nye The Science Guy Have A Calm, Mature Debate About Climate Change

Submitted by: fancylad 2 months ago in Science


Just kidding. Tucker Carlson barely let Nye talk and he only made those why disagree with climate change look foolish. If FOX News wants to air a serious debate about climate change, they probably shouldn't use Carlson as their representative.

I agree with almost everything he says, but Bill Nye is still a condescending asshole. I can always see why people dislike him. "I'm a member of both skeptic organizations" Oh, my goodness then, you must know things, you're a member of something! Same with Al Gore, the talking heads need to get out of the way, they do nothing much but make for an easy target

Global warming is absolutely a false and ludicrous concept.

I mean, at the moment (14:00hrs), it's only 34.6C (94.3F). It's meant to get to 36c (96.8F) today....and even if it makes that, it's still cooler than the last 3 days in a row. The next few days the temp is dropping to 34C (93F), then 33C(91.4), and then for the next few days after, a chilly 30C(86F)...I better dig out a jumper! Thank fuck my work station is only 25 yards from a blast-furnace, or I might freeze to death!

buttersrules Because Australia was covered in ice before Human-Caused Global Warming melted it all and turned much of it into a hot desert... lolz! 

Actual Question: did Australia get covered up at all in the last Ice Age? I know parts of South America did... hummm...
A quick look says, maybe Tasmania? But not Australia. And South America grew a big ice sheet, but it wasn't connected to Antarctica...

And yes, thenedman is correct, butters is joking around, as am I.

oederl 5cats thenedman

My sarcasm was about as obvious as an 18 foot tall woman with 3 eyes, two of which are blue, one of which is green, and one of which is yellow (and yes, I know that's four), who has an 18 inch penis growing out of her forehead, and is wearing a t-shirt that is fluoro-green with the logo on it that says "I'M BEING SARCASTIC, YOU DUMB BASTARD!!"....

So, oederl, dear sir, I ask the question; Who is the idiot? The sarcastic joker, or the person completely oblivious to said obvious sarcasm?...

It is always frustrating to watch a scientific intellect interact with a master manipulator. Almost didn't make it through that one.

markust123 I know right! Scientifically minded Tucker could hardly get a straight answer out ot the Manipulator Nye. ;-) Did you see how hard he tried to dodge ANY question? Just kept repeating the dogma, like he was chanting...

And Nye said AGW is 100% human caused, you agree with this?

You're right, 5cats. The millions of tonnes of shit humans pump into the air, land and oceans every year over the past several thousand years has had zero effect.
Why would it? Ton after ton after ton of poison in our air and oceans. I can't see how that would have any effect whatsoever.

You're clearly a scientist with decades of experience just like Tucker. Tell me how someone as stupid as Nye (and thousands of other so-called scientists) could have come to the conclusion that the earth is just fine.

oobaka 0.01% of the air and you're saying that's destroying the world? Wait, you're joking of course! Lolz!

Did I SAY it has ZERO effect? Did I? No, fuck you very much. Make shit up and attack me for things I've never said, ever. OF COURSE we 'effect the weather' a small amount, DUH! Maybe a large amount, but absolutely NOT 100%!! Just our cutting of trees and plowing of fields causes a small change. Sometimes (mostly probably) warming, sometimes cooling (those vapor trails in the sky? Cools the Earth, measurably). DUH! Chickenshit spreader...

5cats I like how you list 2 things that seem so docile as cutting trees and plowing fields. If I remember right, more trees are planted than harvested in the US every year. Trees aren't that big of a deal anyway. They just provide us with the air we breath.

But I need to ask...you mentioned vapor trails. Please tell me you think those are chemtrails. Your journey to the crazy side of the force will then be complete.

oobaka No, fucking moron who cannot even speak English, VAPOR trails are not fucking CHEM-trails. Are you retarded? 

During the 9/11 3-days of NO commercial aircraft flying over most of North America? They measured the sunlight hitting across the whole thing. There was a measurable increase in what would normally be recorded. not a lot, but outside of the margin of error. Thus that particular human activity actually cools the Earth. Not a lot, but there it is. But you're too stupid to understand that, so don't hurt your little brain trying to.

I just said cutting trees can adversely affect the environment, and you argue with me? Is the USA 'the world'? no? How about the REST of the deforestation going on? Take a look at Madagascar lately??? Fucking idiot. Argues when I try to agree with him, what a shit-for-brains.

Hey! Looked up the definition of "Stories" Yet? Willing to admit you were wrong yet?

5cats During England's industrial revolution, England put out so much carbon bearing smoke it blackened whole Forrests all around many big cities such as London. One species of white moth went extinct because it could no longer blend with the formally light colored wood of the trees there and became easy prey for birds and other insects. Also there are reports that the air at times became so toxic from the smoke that many either died outright or later suffered a condition similar to black lung like coal minors

Now remember that was just one country with only a few factories, now fast forward to modern times where you have maybe 200 countries with thousands of factories doing the exact same thing or worse and you say there is no impact on the environment?

thezigrat I have never once said "humans have no impact on the environment" ok? 

Yes, isolated smog (that's what it was, not 'fog' actually) was bad and killed people. Same for dozens of huge cities over the centuries.

And the temperatures or CO2 did not start rising until (about) 1900, so you're claiming humans changed the Earth's atmosphere from a tiny % of the then tiny population? And it just didn't show up for a hundred years or so? Nope. Didn't happen. Not outside the 'margin of error' ok? Nothing that can be definitively measured, only 'extrapolated' and 'modeled' which is entirely different.

And here's Bill Nye saying NATURE has NO IMPACT on the environment, and you just let that slide?

Nye is so full of shit. The REASON parts of the world used to be underwater is TECTONICS not climate change. zomg he cannot be more wrong if he tried!
And the oceans are simply NOT rising like AGW predicts. So his fearmongering is utterly baseless. It is rising slowly, yes, as it has ben for 15,000 years...

And yes, Nye said that any climate denier should be sent to jail. Why he denies it? He's just bonkers.

Tucker gave him every opportunity to talk, and every change to answer his very simple questions, but Nye just dodges and changes the subject every single time.

And in Roman times? Wine Grapes grew in the UK because it was during a Warming Period that was 100% natural... so again, Nye is full of shit, again.

Nye even gets the MSM accusation wrong! And claims Trump's people are the ones leaking things? Not the thousands of Obama appointees? What a joke. Who takes this idiot seriously? Oh yeah, IAB Liberals...

5cats - You agree tectonic plates exist? It can be argued there's a similar scientific consensus (that term you hate) regarding their existence as AGW.

mikesex Lolz! Your ancestors either walked across during the Ice Age when Sea Levels were 100 feet lower, or at least before Lake Agassiz bust it's ice-wall and flooded the Earth. It separated UK from Europe, opened Gibraltar and created the Black and Caspian seas among other things...

Ancient Britain was a peninsula until a tsunami flooded its land-links to Europe some 8,000 years ago. 

The coastline and landscape of what would become modern Britain began to emerge at the end of the last Ice Age around 10,000 years ago.

What had been a cold, dry tundra on the north-western edge of Europe grew warmer and wetter as the ice caps melted. The Irish Sea, North Sea and the Channel were all dry land, albeit land slowly being submerged as sea levels rose.

But it wasn't until 6,100BC that Britain broke free of mainland Europe for good, during the Mesolithic period - the Middle Stone Age.

mikesex Right, and 8000 years ago is when Lake Aggasiz burst it's northern ice wall and flooded the Earth with the largest tsunami ever seen, bar none. :-) That's the one you refer to.
IDK when Ireland's island broke away though, before during or after that?

Anyhow, it altered the climate (cold snap) for a couple of decades because it pushed super-salty Arctic waters south and replaced it with clean lake waters...

At 3:00 Tucker asks the BEST question ever! Why this isn't POUNDED by Skeptics in every conversation is a mystery.

And Nye just said it: 100% After avoiding the question entirely, of course.

What % is 'caused by humans'. There has to be an answer to this, it's not a rhetorical question. AGW is founded on it being 100% human caused and nothing I've seen has disagreed with that. Gore to Kyoto to Paris all say it's 100% and that the science is settled. Period.

jaysingrimm He said Global Warming is 100% caused by HUMANS. 
There are 2 things that change the Earth's climate: humans and nature. Nothing else.

How much is 100 - 100 = ? 
What's left is what nature does, according to Nye and the rest of the AGW Zealots.

Take your time, I do understand that you are retarded and find grade-3 maths very difficult...

Tucker is great! A really refreshing change from the 'normal' talk show host.
He lets his guests talk a fuck of a lot more than Lemon or 50 other leftist talking heads.


Nye is fucked in the head, his 'best before' date was 20 years ago...

I watched the interview. Tucker was abrupt, but when Bill Nye (he is not really a scientist guy) states "the science has been settled". That goes against any form of sciences...not considering other possibilities. Our sun has much more to do with our client than mankind activity. I'll never understand why people treat man made climate change like a religion/cult. No science is settled when it is mainly political. Follow the money trail. Now comes the insults from the cult members...

Mikeman64 - Of course the sun is a huge factor, including our angle of precession orbiting around it (Milankovitch Cycles). However, the sun itself has shown a slight cooling trend the last 30 years, contrary to our increased warming here on earth. Meanwhile, greenhouse gases (such as CO2) trap heat, inducing warming.

Mikeman64 I have been repeatedly told, by various IAB AGW fanatics, that NO ONE EVER SAID "the science is settled" and that this is a 'vast right-wing conspiracy' spread by Big Oil... and Coal too... probably tobacco as well... and the dirty Joos... Lolz! 
Even now, they will deny anyone says it.

As we see the climate deniers or skeptics are moving farther and farther towards Climate change.  Now it's "How much is man affecting the climate".  That is a valid question.  And if you look at previous warming periods and climate cycles we SHOULD be cooling.  We are warming rapidly.  (relatively speaking).  There's nothing quite like it.  It was 70 degrees last week in the middle of February.  Listen the climate change isn't catastrophic.  But it NEEDS to be addressed.

Not happening
Not happening a lot
Not us
Not us a lot
Not much we can do

BTW if they can't use a freak snowstorm to say GW isn't real we can't say a warm day in Feb is and indicator either.

Well said!
And it's the AGW fanatics who say EVERY weather anomaly is 'caused by' AGW, the Skeptics are making fun of them! Lolz! When we point out how many of Al Gore's speeches get cancelled by snowstorms, or things like that, we're not saying it 'disproves AGW' ...we're mocking them. :-)

And it is AGW fanatics say that AGW causes everything, literally everything! Heat, cold, rain, drought, winds, calm, more storms, less storms, ice melting, ice increasing, earthquakes! ALL caused by AGW! All caused by humans! There is nothing AGW cannot do! They tell us...
