UK Daily Mail: ‘A pretend scientist in a bow tie’: ‘Climate denying Weather Channel founder SLAMS Bill Nye for criticizing skeptical film ‘Climate Hustle’
John Coleman, Weather Channel founder, attacked TV star Nye Friday
Nye had criticized 'Climate Hustle,' which denies man-made climate change
'It's not in the world's interest,' Nye said of the documentary film
Coleman, who introduces the movie was 'offended' that Nye is so popular
Nye has a BS in Mechanical Engineering, but is not a scientist
The film, marketed with the tagline ‘Are they trying to control the climate… or you?’ suggests that man-made global warming is a hoax.
Its website says that an ‘overheated environmental con job [is] being used to push for increased government regulations and a new “Green” energy agenda.’
Nye, a children’s TV host who has made a career out of presenting science-themed shows, is highly critical of climate change deniers.
When asked by the filmmakers whether climate-change deniers should be jailed, Nye replied, ‘Well, we’ll see what happens. Was it appropriate to jail the guys from ENRON?’
He continued: ‘Was it appropriate to jail people from the cigarette industry who insisted that this addictive product was not addictive and so on?’
