Bill Nye Insults Opponents of Carbon Taxes, Calls them Idiots
If you're the type who thinks Bill Nye should go back to the 90s where he belongs, you're not alone. We're right there with you. The bow-tied face wart is back at it again, dropping F-bombs and calling people who oppose a carbon tax idiots.
See for yourself:
“By the end of this century, if emissions keep rising, the average temperature on Earth could go up another four to eight degrees,” Nye said in the video, which was featured on John Oliver's HBO program, "Last Week Tonight."
“What I’m saying is the planet’s on f---ing fire. There are a lot of things we could do to put it out — are any of them free? No, of course not. Nothing’s free, you idiots," Nye added. "Grow the f--- up. You’re not children anymore. I didn’t mind explaining photosynthesis to you when you were 12. But you’re adults now, and this is an actual crisis, got it? Safety glasses off, motherf---ers.”
Yep, I wouldn't expect any less from Bill Nye the Douchebag Guy.
This sounds exactly like what you'd hear from a seedy televangelist. "Your soul is doomed to hellfire but, for the low low price of $99.95, I can promise you an eternity free of the barbeque pit. Provide your social security number and bank account information and salvation will be yours! Order now." Simply remove the preacher and insert a skinny non-scientist snot burrito in a lab coat. You've now got Bill Nye's sales pitch.
In reality, even after a carbon tax, businesses will keep on doing what they do. While passing the extra costs onto the consumers. Which means us taxpayers get raped in the butt not once, but twice. Not exactly a satisfactory deal. But possibly a Game of Thrones plotline.
There's plenty of people even on the right who are cool with taking care of the planet. The disagreement is when it comes to leftists' "solutions." Some people just think climate change isn't gonna magically disappear once our money goes into the government's pocket.
Bill Nye should shut his squawking piehole and stick to kiddie show hosting. Or he could get eaten on Game of Thrones. Whatever.
