Climate change skeptics are partying in their parkas over recent snowstorms, claiming these wintery showers disprove global warming.

Well, Bill Nye thinks these naysayers should take a “chill” pill because crazy-face weather (hot or cold) is actually one of the effects of climate change.

Nye took a few moments to reiterate this fact this week on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show. He broke it down this way:

“Global warming was the first term for this phenomenon that we now call ‘climate change.’ So it’s very reasonable that a snow storm…that is this severe is the result of climate change.”

“If you want to get serious about it, these guys claiming that the snow in Washington disproves climate change are almost unpatriotic. They’re denying science. They’re very happy to have the weather forecast be accurate within a few hours, but they’re displeased or unenchanted by predictions of the world getting warmer. It shakes me up.”

We hear you loud and clear, Bill. What do you think about Nye’s comments? Check out the video below and then chime in to share your thoughts!

    Maybe we can post his words on the bottom of every newscast, since every dolt is saying the same thing, “Snowstorms, how’s that for global WARMING?”

    Poor Bill Nye, he said that the UN IPCC won the Nobel for Science but they didn’t, it was the Peace prize. The Peace prize has no credibility anymore, even Obama won it last year though he’s engaged in war in two separate countries.
