He may not have realized it, but Bill Nye, aka the “Science Guy,” summed up the left in a nutshell during an appearance Saturday on CNN when he slammed the network for allowing an opposing point of view.
Participating in a panel discussion that marked Earth Day, Nye took issue with fellow panelist William Happer, a physicist who doesn’t buy into the established narrative on climate change and his solution was to shut down any and all debate that challenges the accepted dogma of the environmental left.
“I will say, much as I love CNN, you’re doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic, and not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change,” Nye said at one point.
Happer, a professor at Princeton, posing a particular challenge to the left as a member of the intelligentsia. He dismisses their tenet that not only is climate change real, but a primary driver is human-induced increases in carbon dioxide.
He argues that “the world is getting greener, and people should stop hyperventilating.”
“There’s this myth that’s developed around carbon dioxide that it’s a pollutant,” Harper said Saturday. “But you and I both exhale carbon dioxide with every breath. Each of us emits about two pounds of carbon dioxide a day so are we polluting the planet?”
Way too much common sense for the left in that argument, no?
