Bill Nye, US Rep. Blackburn clash on climate change (Video)

A week-and-a-bit ago, the internet’s favourite science guy, Bill Nye, took to the stage at the Creation Museum, in Kentucky, USA, and had a formal debate with pro-creationist, Ken Ham. 500 000 people tuned in on YouTube to watch the debate live, and the video’s had nearly 2-million views since then.

“This is unscientific, it is not logical,” he said. “It is a way, apparently, that the fossil-fuel industry has dealt with our politics. And this is not good.”

Representative Marsha Blackburn responded by arguing that the warming has been “very slight” and that, even if Nye’s arguments were all correct, that wouldn’t mean progressive policy proposals would fix the identified problems.

“Even Director McCarthy from the EPA in answering questions from Congressman Pompeo before our committee said reaching all of the 26 U.S. goals is not going to have an impact globally,” Blackburn said. “What we have to look at is the fact that you don’t make good laws, sustainable laws, when you’re making them on hypotheses or theories or unproven sciences.”
