Whether people want to admit it or not, climate change is real and we are in the midst of it.
One of those non-believers is Sarah Palin. Despite people like Neil Degrasse Tyson and Stephen Hawking have maintained that climate change is a fact, not a theory, Palin has stuck to her very confused guns. One of the famous people who has always voiced his his thoughts on climate change was Bill Nye the Science Guy. Palin caught wind of his thoughts on the matter and had a lot of choice words about Bill.
In an attempt to discredit the scientific evidence for climate change, Palin said that “Bill Nye is as much a scientist as I am. He’s a kids’ show actor. He’s not a scientist,” the Hill reported.
Palin made her comments at the premiere of Climate Hustle, a film suggesting that the government invented global warming.
I don't know where Palin got her information about Bill, but Nye holds a degree in mechanical engineering from Cornell University, and helped design a sundial used in the Mars Exploration Rover missions.
I think he's pretty well versed on the subject. Did Palin think that no one was going to fact check a statement like this?
