Bill Nye the “mental guy” believes science is based on the feels. Unborn babies aren’t alive. Pumping hormones into children is good parenting. Lard filled feminists are beautiful (see Bill Nye Wants Your Grandparents to Die. For Climate Science… and New Guidelines Allow ‘Transgender’ Children Under 16 to Medically Transition). But some people want to take back science from the crazies.
Climate change skeptics could soon be added to the Science Advisory Board for the EPA.
Academics espousing skeptical positions on climate change are included in a list of 132 possible nominees for positions on the EPA’s Science Advisory Board, according to a report Monday from The Washington Post.
One of the nominees, astrophysicist Gordon Fulks, suggested in 2010 that he is “concerned that many who promote the idea of catastrophic global warming reduce science to a political and economic game.” Fulks, a policy advisor at free market group Heartland Institute, also believes climate change comes mostly from natural variation.
The Earth has undergone “modest warming as we have come out of the Little Ice Age since about 1830 in ice core temperature reconstructions. That surely says that the warming over the last almost two centuries is natural in origin,” Fulks told reporters.
Mother Earth is happy to have someone who understands her at her core.
Fulks added that if he is placed on the Science Advisory Board, he would work “to make sure that the decisions that the EPA makes regarding regulations are firmly based in science and not superstition.” The board currently has 47 members, but 15 have terms ending in September.
There’s an idea, put a little intellectual diversity on a board about science, finding truth, sorting out facts.
Is there any man-made involvement in “climate change”? Maybe. Is man entirely to blame only higher taxes and more electric cars can fix it? No, stop it. We had hurricanes long before we drove SUVs. We had tornados long before plastic bags. We had flash floods long before Keurig put their already ground coffee into K-cups. Summers are warmer than winters, it’s called seasons. Stop sniffing glue, thinking you’re entirely responsible for changing climate. You’re not that special.
If the left is so keen on politicizing the climate and weather, then it’s only fair to stack the board with both political sides, and different political ideals. One being “Maybe the climate just changes on its own.” The other being “I don’t worship God, I worship human beings, who’re powerful enough to change the climate because they use hairspray.” Or something.
There might be hope for science after all. There’s also hope these nominees wear ties instead of bow ties. That’s a lame dig at Bill Nye the gender fluid guy. It’s whatever.
