Nye has made crucial errors in explaining hurricanes, tornadoes and other examples of “severe weather” to the general public.
Jason Samenow, who writes for The Washington Post and has a masters degree in atmospheric science, has criticized Nye’s attempt at an explanation of hurricanes, calling it “one of the most flawed discussions of meteorology I’ve ever seen on a national network.” Moreover, Weather Channel founder John Coleman has also weighed in on Nye’s credibility.
“As a man who has studied the science of meteorology for over 60 years and received the AMS (American Meteorological Society’s) ‘Meteorologist of the Year’ award, I am totally offended that Nye gets the press and media attention he does,” Coleman said, according to Climate Depot.
Morano on Fox: "This is in line with the debate of intimidation and science, and Bill Nye is the leader of that now, unfortunately, and a big influence with young minds and that’s why he’s so confident he can convert the young people to climate action but he is having trouble with anyone his age and older because frankly they’re wiser and they have experienced a lot, so they are less susceptible to his propaganda.”
Bill Nye: Older people tend to be 'climate deniers' therefore we must wait for them to die so denial can die with them.
"Climate change deniers, by way of example, are older. It's generational," Nye told the Los Angeles Times. Nye said that he is calling them out with "due respect," acknowledging that he is "now one of them." "We're just going to have to wait for those people to 'age out,' as they say," Nye went on, adding that "age out" is a euphemism for "die." "But it'll happen, I guarantee you — that'll happen."
