Meteorologists Dismantle Bill Nye’s Global Warming Alarmism

Nye’s hype over Tropical Storm Bill comes on the heels of news reports that the U.S. is actually in the midst of a 10-year “hurricane drought.”

Bill Nye the “Science Guy” is once again trying to blame global warming for a series of weather events happening around the U.S., but this time meteorologists aren’t having it.

Meteorologists criticized Nye’s claim that warm temperatures in Alaska and flooding in Texas are a product of man-made global warming.

As Tropical Storm Bill (no relation to Nye) was projected to make landfall in Texas, Nye tweeted:

Nye has been been relentless in trying to connect such extreme weather events to man-made global warming in recent months, to the point where actual meteorologists who study weather patterns are fed up with him.

Nye’s extreme weather claims and hype over Tropical Storm Bill come on the heels of news reports that the U.S. has been in the midst of a 10-year “hurricane drought.” For nearly a decade, no Category 3 or higher hurricanes have made landfall in the U.S., and there’s been no upward trend in other natural disasters like tornadoes, droughts or wildfires. Even a meteorology student at Pennsylvania State University and independent weather forecasters out of New Jersey criticized Nye for harming the scientific debate on global warming.

    Ken Ham proved that “the science guy” can’t debate evolution, so now Bill Nye is looking for something else to do. Alas, his “science” appears primarily to be a form of — irony — religious belief that has little to do with the work of actual scientists or the actual facts.
