Meteorologists Dismantle Bill Nye’s Alarmist Hype Of Global Warming

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:

Bill floods Texas. Alaska is on fire. Just a little global warming & climate change. Nothing to worry about… pic.twitter.com/l2qAaiytE6

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.

Bill Nye the bloviating, low information “climate guy” … not taken seriously by any meteorologist. https://t.co/aOHSCW3Ga2

@joshwallswx @wxhistorian @BillNye @weatherbrains he couldn’t handle people that actually understand how the atmosphere works

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.

@BillNye you stand for everything that is wrong in the world of climate/atmospheric science

.@BillNye Your hysteric stance is harmful to the scientific body currently researching our true footprint (+.6C temp/+55ppm CO2 since ~1950)
