Bill Nye calls out CNN for having "essentially a climate change denier meteorologist"


Bill Nye isn't shy about sharing the truth about climate change, and he'll call out anyone who doesn't listen to the scientific facts. 

So when CNN brought him on New Day to discuss the recent devastating flooding in Louisiana, Nye immediately made it clear that this kind of tragedy would not be an isolated event. 

"This is a result of climate change," Nye said to anchor Chris Cuomo. "It's only going to get worse."


Nye explained that warming oceans will lead to more storms, and at the very end of the segment, he went after CNN's past climate change coverage.

"Here at CNN you have essentially a climate change denier meteorologist and knock yourselves out," Nye said. "But this is a big problem and it's not going to go away."

We can assume Nye was talking about long-time CNN meteorologist Chad Myers, who has a history of climate change denial. 

In the past, Myers has expounded anti-science and blamed climate change on anything but humans. 

In December 2008, Myers said on CNN's Lou Dobbs Tonight, "To think that we could affect weather all that much is pretty arrogant.

"Mother Nature is so big, the world is so big, the oceans are so big ... I think we're going to die from a lack of fresh water or we're going to die from ocean acidification before we die from global warming, for sure," he added.

Myers tweeted on Tuesday that Nye couldn't be talking about him, however, because he changed his mind about climate change years ago. "A scientist can be swayed by data and I was," he wrote.
