Meteorologist Blames Hurricane Sensationalism on Unqualified Leftist 'Experts'
Predictably, the left is blaming Hurricane Florence on the Donald. If only Trump had ordered the climate to stop changing, hurricanes wouldn't even be a thing right now. So, Tucker Carlson brought meteorologist Dr. Roy Spencer on his program to call bullhickey. He has a theory about the source of this rampant dumbassery on the left.
Take a listen:
“Why do people like the Washington Post say such stupid things? It’s because the people that are informing us in the media about global warming are people like Al Gore, Bill Nye ‘The Science Guy,’ Neil deGrasse Tyson — people that don’t know anything about atmospheric science. You just have to look at history,” Dr. Spencer stated.
“Sorry. Let me just interrupt you. Bill Nye is a ‘Science Guy.’ It’s in his title. So that doesn’t mean he knows a lot about atmospheric science?” Carlson asked.
“No, he doesn’t. He is not a trained scientist. I believe he is an engineer of some sort. Plus he has a widely viewed YouTube video called ‘Climate 101’ where he faked an experiment,” Spencer responded. “He put CO2 into a jar and shone a bright light on it and tried to show that it caused the jar to warm up inside because of the extra CO2. But a TV meteorologist Anthony Watts cleverly showed that the whole thing was faked. It’s ridiculous.”
Well, talk about a verbal ass-beating.
Dr. Spencer has a point. Bill Nye declared himself an authority on all things climate because he bought a lab coat from the costume store and fronted a kiddie show in the 90s. His actual qualifications are about as existent as Kevin Spacey's career, post-diddling.
Just like anything else, the left is sensationalizing natural occurrences. Hurricanes go back hundreds, if not thousands of years. Yet, according to washed up 20th century TV stars and Indiana Jones, we've never seen anything like this.
I think we'll stick to trusting actual experts, not people who play them on TV:
