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.”
