Television personality Bill Nye, a former Boeing engineer and standup comedian, may call himself “The Science Guy,” but his May 20 appearance on Piers Morgan’s CNN program dealt with speculation, rather than science.
Referring to the devastating tornado in Oklahoma, Nye said that 10 of the past 12 years have been “the warmest years recorded” and that “if there’s more heat driving the storm then there’s going to be more tornadoes.”
Actual climate scientists point out that warmer weather would tend to reduce wind shear, which is necessary to produce tornadoes. Furthermore, the journal Nature Geoscience reports that there has been a fifteen year “standstill” in global temperature increases – something Nye either didn’t know or declined to take into account.
Although Nye and other climate alarmists treat every tornado as a harbinger of catastrophic global warming, four decades ago their predecessors said exactly the opposite. In an April 28, 1975 story entitled “Our Cooling World,” Newsweek pointed out that the U.S. had experienced “the most devastating outbreak of tornadoes ever recorded” – a fact blamed on what was described as the catastrophic cooling of the global climate.
Nye typifies the kind of person who is often wrong, but never in doubt.
