"The Cycle, 1/26/15 at 3:34 PM EST:Well, if this snow storm is indicative of the science and seriousness of "climate change", then we have nothing to worry about except for the impact of believing in radically wrong predictions, i.e. Scientismic snow jobs.
[Nye was on to discuss Deflategate. Shifts to global warming.]
BILL NYE: I just want to introduce the idea that this storm is connected to climate change. I want to introduce that idea. I know there will be certain viewers who will become unglued. They are throwing things at their television sets and so on. But the economic effect of storms like this is huge. You cancel half the flights out of the world's -- one of the world's busiest airports, certainly the eastern seaboard is a very busy area economically for airplane travel.

So I just want to introduce the idea that the strong winds that we had in southern California, the very strong winds that will be associated with this storm in the next couple of days, these could be connected to climate change. Now, proving any one storm is connected, especially cold-weather events is quite difficult. But I just want to present that. And both of these stories for me –
