Bill Nye accused by the CNN Crossfire host S.E. Cupp

“Science Guy” Bill Nye has been accused by the CNN Crossfire host S.E. Cupp who suspects that he might just be using his professional experience as a tool with which to intimidate global warming skeptics. Even before coming to the aid of Heritage Foundation economist Nicholas Loris, Bill Nye was asked by Cupp that “Isn’t it a problem when science guys attempt to bully other people? Nick here had to say, ‘I’m not a denier.’ He had to get it out: ‘I’m not a denier.’ Because really, the science group has tried to shame anyone who dares question this, and the point I’m trying to make is, it’s not working with the public.” Alongside this, Cupp also accused Nye, co-host Van Jones and President Barack Obama’s administration of using “scare tactics” against the public regarding climate change, while Loris called into question a study released on Tuesday by the National Climate Assessment (NCA).

Loris clearly told Bill Nye that “I’m not a denier, I’m not a skeptic. What I’m saying is, climate is changing — yes, man-made emission are in some part to that — but we haven’t seen these extreme event trends. The observed data doesn’t prove that.” However Nye here interjected saying very bluntly “So I disagree”.

More importantly is, the policy prescriptions, these greenhouse-gas regulations coming down, prohibiting building new coal fire power plants, is just going to make us less equipped, less economically prosperous to be able to handle these problems.”

“So let’s start with, we don’t agree on the facts,” Nye answered. “This third [NCA] report came out, saying it’s very serious, you say no. There’s the essence of the problem, S.E. The science, the researchers say yes.” To this however, Loris protested “Not all the scientists.” Loris here did not mention anything about this think tank business which in financial terms is held very strongly by billionaires Charles and David Koch. He also kept back the information regarding his organization expressing skepticism toward the idea of man-made global warming.

The NCA has recently released its report which says that “Corn producers in Iowa, oyster growers in Washington state and maple syrup producers in Vermont are all observing climate-related changes that are outside of recent experience. So, too, are coastal planners in Florida, water managers in the arid Southwest, city dwellers from Phoenix to New York and native peoples on tribal lands from Louisiana to Alaska.”
