Leftist climate change activists are having a field day between Hurricanes Irma and Harvey. As they create mayhem throughout the United States liberals are using this as a chance to push their leftist agenda.
The lefts favorite fake scientist Bill Nye, is one of those.
Bill Nye: Everything is climate change
Over the last several years, Nye, the former host of a 1990’s children’s television show, has become a leading crusader in warning against man-made climate change, denouncing anything other than his own version of science and truth.

To Nye, any anomalous weather is a sign of climate change. So with record-setting Hurricane Irma coming on the heals of record-setting Hurricane Harvey, Nye was quick to connect the dots and conclude climate change.
“It’s the strength that is almost certainly associated with global warming,” Nye told Dan Rather last week. “As the world gets warmer and there’s more heat energy in the atmosphere, you expect storms to get stronger. You also expect ocean currents to not flow the way they always have. That will make some places cooler and some warmer.”
“The problem…is that these hurricanes are very powerful,” Nye said. “We’re all gonna pay for Harvey, we’re all gonna pay for Irma one way or another. So…anyway, the more heat energy in the atmosphere strengthens the storms — as you would expect.” (Related: Bill Nye’s Dire Warning to Trump: ‘You Can’t Build A Border Wall Against CO2 Emissions’)
A real scientist, a PhD meteorologist responds
Dr. Ryan Maue, a climate scientist known for his work with tropics, weather models and climate research shut Nye down on Twitter.
When someone questioned Maue, he doubled down on his point that Nye was just plain wrong in his comments. (Related: Bill Nye: Older generations are going to have to ‘die’ before climate science can advance)
What other scientists are saying
University of Washington atmospheric scientist Cliff Mass also put the brakes on the climate change theory in an extensive blog post last month about Hurricane Harvey.
“Hurricane Harvey developed in an environment in which temperatures were near normal in the atmosphere and slightly above normal in the Gulf,” he wrote. “The clear implication: global warming could not have contributed very much to the storm.” (Related: Watch: Bill Nye blows gasket when a real scientist schools him on facts about ‘climate change’)
“There is no evidence that global warming is influencing Texas coastal precipitation in the long term and little evidence that warmer than normal temperatures had any real impact on the precipitation intensity from this storm,” he explained.
