Seeing Bill Nye on a panel about climate change wouldn’t surprise anyone, but on a panel with Sarah Palin? It’s happening! It will be Bill Nye the Science Guy vs. Sarah Palin, the Blithering Idiot. This event won’t be something that the former half-term governor of Alaska can woo her audience with by just talking about God and her bitter clinging of guns.
Mark your calendar for May 2, because this is all real. It’s all happening.
Palin — who has long been known for her rambling, “disjointed” speeches and lack of fact-based assertions — has signed on to participate in a panel hosted after the nation-wide screening of Climate Hustle in hundreds of theaters. The documentary is produced by Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow and Marc Morano’s ClimateDepot.com and aims to deconstruct theories about global warming.
Palin said, “I’m very passionate about this issue. We’ve been told by fear-mongers that global warming is due to man’s activities and this presents strong arguments against that in a very relatable way.”
Many republicans have softened their stance on climate change.
“Clearly there is some influence, we are living on a planet and we kind of dominate the planet, man made climate change is part of this,” Jeb Bush said at a New Hampshire event last year.
John Kasich and others have, too.
Of course, Palin could take Sen. Jim Inhofe’s lead and bring a snowball in front of the panel to totally disprove climate change. One day last year, it dawned on Inhofe that it was cold outside. So he marched on to the floor with a snowball to show those icky scientists a thing or two.
“It’s very, very cold out. Very unseasonable.” Inhofe, who is also chairman of the Senate’s Environment and Public Works Committee, declared.
“So,” he said, while throwing the snowball to the sitting Senate president, “catch this,” then before our eyes, climate change was disproven. Forever and ever. Amen.
A scientist vs. Sarah Palin. This should be easy for one of them.
