Bill Nye, "Science Guy," Open to Jail Time for Climate Change Skeptics

Bill Nye, called "The Science Guy" after the kids' show he hosted for PBS back in the 1990s, is up for jailing people who question climate change.

Asked about environmental activist Robert Kennedy's assertion that climate skeptics should be tried as war criminals, the TV personality mused, "We’ll see what happens."

In a discussion of the case being brought by various state attorneys general against ExxonMobil—an action that has led to subpoenas of free-market think tanks such as the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI)—Nye had this to say:

As a taxpayer and voter, the introduction of this extreme doubt about climate change is affecting my quality of life as a public citizen... So I can see where people are very concerned about this, and they’re pursuing criminal investigations as well as engaging in discussions like this....That there is a chilling effect on scientists who are in extreme doubt about climate change, I think that is good.

A "chilling effect", eh? I wonder if, in the wee hours of the morning, Bill Nye lays awake staring at the ceiling, perfectly aware of what a demented fraud he really is?

The man is a joke, a caricature of a Carl Sagan wannabee who just can't seem to jump off that pedestal he was placed on decades ago. And now he thinks it's gonna be okay to jail everyone who disagrees with him.

Well, hell, I've been all for that, for a very long time. I'd LOVE it if I could convince the government to jail every single person who disagreed with me for any reason whatsoever. But wait, isn't that what guys like Stalin, Mao and Dear Leader did?

First one in the slammer is Bill Nye.
