Sarah Palin Shills for Climate Change Deniers, Says Bill Nye Isn’t a Scientist

“I’m all about mankind”
Science • Views: 51,947

Since we last wrote about her Sarah Palin hasn’t gotten any smarter, and now she’s hooked up with one of the main attack dogs of the climate change denial gang, Marc Morano, a paid oil industry shill who’s promoting a horrible movie called “Climate Hustle.”

One of the main targets of Morano’s film is Bill Nye, and that’s not too surprising since he and Nye have had several encounters in recent years and Morano always comes off looking like the dishonest right wing puppet he is.

As we all know, Sarah Palin is always ready to help promote a dishonest right wing cause, and she’s pitching in for Morano by attacking Bill Nye’s scientific credentials, saying “Bill Nye is as much a scientist as I am.”

Oddly enough, even though she says outright she’s equivalent to a “kids’ show actor” when it comes to science, that doesn’t stop her from mixing up one of her trademark word salads to attack the science of climate change.

“It’s something that our candidates should be talking about and giving us their view on and hopefully acknowledging that it needs to become, in the science community, less political,” she said. “Otherwise, it leads us to believe that so many things coming from perhaps the scientists could be bogus. If this is bogus, you know, what else are they trying to tell us and trying to control us around if they can’t get this one right?

“I’m all about mankind. I want life to be better for mankind and that takes development of our natural resources. That’s what allowed America to become exceptional,” she said.

“If anything, some people would say I’m pushing progress and development too aggressively, certainly not holding anybody back, I want people to work, I want people to produce.”

Yes, those evil scientists, always trying to control us by making up bogus information out of thin air. Probably so they can get those sweet, sweet piles of money from the National Science Foundation and light cigars with hundred dollar bills while laughing at people like Sarah.

By the way, among his other scientific achievements, Bill Nye has a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering, has been awarded several honorary doctor of science degrees, holds several patents, was a visiting professor at Cornell University, helped design a sundial included in the Mars Exploration Rover project, and is a former vice president of the Planetary Society.

On the other hand, Sarah Palin once shot a moose on TV, and Marc Morano is a frequent guest on the Alex Jones show.

UPDATE at 4/15/16 11:54:19 am by Charles Johnson

Here’s a video Bill Nye posted at YouTube a few days ago showing him confronting Marc Morano about his deceptive practices, asking him what kind of legacy he wants to leave for his children.

“Bear in mind, your reputation in the mainstream is a guy who will do almost anything to win. Your children go to school. They have access to the Internet. They see your history, what you’ve said about people; your publishing of emails. You’ve encouraged harassment. I agreed to do this interview because I think it will expose your point of view as very much in the minority, and very much not in our national interest and not in the world’s interest. And I say again, I’m very concerned about your kids.”
