Bill Nye, 'The Science Guy': 'Well, first of all, I think denying climate change is in nobody's best interests...in the worst case, it could end up like Road Warrior: a couple of tribes on a remote island, eking out a living and killing each other...It’s offensive to me intellectually. And I happen to think it’s unpatriotic. Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution says the government shall 'promote the progress of science and useful arts.' So if you’re a politician looking to derail the progress of science, I think you’re not doing your job.'
Except as Twitchy notes, this isn’t actually what the Constitution says. Art. 1, Section 8 says:
To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries.
'Now he’s Bill Nye the Constitutional Scholar Guy? What a clown. He’s using the section of the Constitution that is the basis for patent law to back up his assertion that questioning the science behind his climate alarmism is somehow unpatriotic.'
