Sarah Palin: Bill Nye Is ‘As Much As Scientist As I Am’


The half-term Governor of Alaska has decided to question Bill Nye’s credentials. On Thursday, Ms. Quitter Pants said Bill Nye the Science Guy has no authority to say climate skeptics are wrong.

Sarah Palin claimed Nye is using his position of authority to harm children by teaching them that climate change is real and man-made, according to The Hill.

“Bill Nye is as much as scientist as I am,” Palin said at a Capitol Hill event held to roll out a film that aims to discredit climate scientists. “He’s a kids’ show actor, he’s not a scientist.”

Sure, because Palin went to five colleges and Nye, a scientist, only graduated from Cornell University.

Palin said behind the “alarmism” that the climate is changing is a “predetermined” and political agenda “of those, I think, who are controlling the narrative right now on changes in the weather.”

Obviously, Nancy French is still employed as Palin’s ghostwriter.

She repeatedly dismissed any real facts or that 97 per cent of scientists agree that climate change can be largely blamed on human activity. Or that NASA, too, agrees that there is a problem. Instead, Palin, who has a bachelor’s degree, said that scientists who believe the consensus that humans are the main cause of climate change are trying to shut down human progress.

The failed vice-presidential candidate went on to encourage parents to teach their children to deny climate change and to “ask those questions and not just believe what Bill Nye the Science Guy is trying to tell them.”

Nye is a one of the main targets of the film shown Thursday, known as “Climate Hustle.” It stars Marc Morano, head of skeptic blog Climate Depot, and is presented largely as a response to “Merchants of Doubt,” a documentary attacking skeptics and comparing them to the tobacco industry.

In an interview with Morano in the film that he highlighted, Nye advocates for investigating people and companies who make a name for themselves doubting climate science.

Palin reacted to the event, because of course she did.

“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,” she said.

We think Grifterface is afraid to be on a stage with Bill Nye. Go home, Sarah. You’re drunk.
