Watch this Tucker Carlson Tonight interchange on global warming, between Bill Nye and Tucker Carlson, and note who is asking questions and who appears dogmatic, fanatical in demeanor, and tries to bully his way to impose his opinion.
I would suggest: If the "science" behind global warming is so "settled," a media veteran such as Mr. Nye should have little difficulty relaxing and using this broadcast occasion to educate a national audience.
He would help his case immensely if he simply stated a proposition and offered scientific evidence to support it. That he did not do. Instead of that he seemed offended and knocked off-balance because Carlson dared to question.
Nye huffed and puffed and did not recover. He lost his cool and seemed anything but a clear-minded scientist in the honest pursuit of verifiable information.
Far better, Mr. Nye, to smile and make your case. We're more than able to evaluate it. Take your theory out of the dogmatic bubble of "settled science" and let's see how it fares.
My hope is that scientists of our day, some of whom seem to be rather more politicized than scientific, will re-embrace what is both the scientific and Biblical calling to be critical thinkers who insist on data, evaluate evidence, think for themselves, reject bullying and peer pressure, and prefer reasoned trust over blind faith.
