Greg's Monologue

Gutfeld: Why does debate scare Bill Nye?

The March for Science was really a march for silence

 

Do you know what Saturday was? It was Earth Day. I know because I had to work and it took me forever to get here. They shut down the main streets so cars and trucks idled forever on the avenues, which apparently is great for the planet like Leo DiCaprio's private jet. Why question reality when you have symbolism? Speaking of, there was also a March for Science:

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE PROTESTER: They are endangering literally the entire planet for political gain in the short term.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE PROTESTER: Climate change is real and we're -- millions of people may end up dying of it not too long in the future and it's just infuriating that people pretend it's not decided, that pretend it might not be happening. The oceans are rising. The glaciers are melting. It's insane.

That didn't sound like science and I love science. It's given us so much: Water purification, antibiotics, light bulbs, robot dinosaurs at monster truck rallies.

But still, I don't think that March for Science was really for science. It was for silence. Fact is, if you hold any view critical of climate dogma, you will be smeared. Bill Nye, the science mascot for Botox reporters scolded CNN for having an actual real physicist on the program to debate him.

BILL NYE, HOST, "BILL NYE SAVES THE WORLD": I will say, as much as I love the CNN, you're doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic and not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change.

Yes, that would work. So you can't even have a scientist, one scientist on to question a comedian who got his degree in mechanical engineering. See, Bill breaks the golden rule of science: He is mocking skepticism which is the spine behind the scientific method. An actual scientist embraces debate because it sharpens their research.

Look, you can still want clean air and clean water but you can also question climate predictions too because they are often horribly wrong. But Bill paints everyone a critic as anti-science even those who tread carefully through the data.

So why should debate scare Nye? Because climate fear is his livelihood. It's his game. And if you don't play along then you're off the field, and that way, he can't lose. And so far it works. It got him a new show.
