Bill Nye, The Science Stupid Guy

Bill Nye has taken stupid to an entirely new level, and CNN is pulling up the rear on his stupid train.

The entire Gulf Coast was built from sediments deposited by floods on the Mississippi River and other rivers. Louisiana wouldn’t exist without regular flooding.  That is why they call it a flood plain.

The only reason a moron like this can be on television, is because everyone else at CNN is just a stupid as he is.

    No, stupider.
    It’s a race to braindeadness. New word, take heed.

  2. David McMahon says:

    That guy is such a doofus.

  3. Gonzo says:

    A little OT but Tony you’ve been hitting on all cylinders lately! Just beating them senseless with FACTS. Keep up the great fight. Cheers

  4. Edmonton Al says:

    Yes Right on Tony.\ re CNN and the moron Bill.
    The Dems are going full out to push the scare scenario.

    • Gail Combs says:

      It is about all they have left to scare voters into voting for Hitlery. Problem is the scare is too old and most people are tired of it.

  5. AndyG55 says:

    I think he has been wearing his bowtie too tight…

    …. and cut of the circulation to his brain.

  6. BobW in NC says:

    Hey, hold on! Bill Nye is, after all, the “Science” guy! I mean, he supports evolution (“Unbdeniable”), climate change… How wrong can he be?

    Oh, wait a minute…

    Thanks, Tony, for calling out the frauds.

  7. Colorado Wellington says:

    There is one thing I like about this dumbass. He’s working for the other side.

  8. OrganicFool says:

    No morals. I’m gonna have to throw away my Bill Nye the Science Guy card deck. Or maybe just burn them. Or better yet, use them at the range.

  9. Sunsettommy says:

    He is right about one thing, it will happen again,whoopie do!

    It happened many times in the past,but brainless morons like him never consider the climatology of the region.The past history of weather.

    Tony showed that Geological forces plays a big part too, in the development of the coastline.

      I hear the same bull every time Norfolk is hit by a nor’easter or a hurricane. Sea Level rise due to “climate change”.

    Just so y’all know, not all of the flood victims down here are whiners sitting on their butts waiting for someone to come in and help them.

    The picture below shows my younger sister’s house as of Sunday. The lower 4′ of drywall has been removed, all the flooring has been torn up, and an AC window unit and a dehumidifiers is set up to dry everything out. The house has been treated to prevent mold. It smells like a house under construction.

    My sister and brother-in-law have been working 12 hour days getting things cleaned up. They also sensible raised as much of their stuff as they could 18 inches before they were left their house. Unfortunately, they got 21 inches of water.

    They have a contractor coming in later this week to start the reconstruction work and will move back in as soon as possible.

    My older sister, on the other hand has done only a minimum amount of work throwing away things that got flooded and her oak flooring. They also lost their cars because they refused to believe the water would rise that high. The inside of her house still looks and smells awful.

    I’ll post updates in semi-appropriate topics as the construction proceeds.

    • dave1billion says:

      Forgot to mention that they had water in their house Tuesday a week ago.

      • RAH says:

        Best to them Dave. Picking up the pieces and driving on relentlessly to get their life back to normal shows great character and also is an indication of the strength of their bond. Probably gives them a chance to go ahead and get a little remodeling done while their at it. Motivated people usually have thought of how somethings could be improved. Did they have one of the clean up services like Service Pro come in to do some of the work or have they done it all themselves?

        • dave1billion says:

          They had a contractor come in to remove the drywall. I’m not sure who did the mold remediation but they did have a pro come in.

          In addition to their regular jobs they flip houses so they knew the right people to get a contractor immediately.

          They were able to get the contractor in because they got the house ready so quickly. With around 55,000 houses affected those contractors are getting harder to find as time went on.

    • KTM says:

      After Katrina, our church group drove from Houston to Slidell to help with the cleanup efforts for two weekends. We slept in sleeping bags in tight rows on the floor of a local church.

      We went house to house through neighborhoods and cut out drywall just like that, 5 to 6 feet high. We cut down and trimmed fallen trees to get them off roofs, then patched them with tarps so that the homeowners could get their power turned on.

      It was dirty, messy, stinky work but the people were there working side by side with us and were very grateful for the help we provided.

      • dave1billion says:

        Thanks for the work that you did then. I know how hot it was after the storm and how hard that work was. And I know how bad the smell was.

        So many people came down from everywhere and give their own time and effort to help out.

        You actually had to have been there to appreciate the damage that was done by that storm.

  11. Climate loonies like Al Gore and Bill Nye lie and they are rewarded financially.

    Climate realists like you and me tell the truth while becoming poorer.

    Who still believes crime does not pay or liars do not prosper?

  12. QV says:

    “That is why they call it a flood plain.”
    And as long as we go on building more and more on flood plains and restricting natural drainage on other land, the floods will potentially get worse and worse.

    • Gail Combs says:

      And if Bill Nye had any morals that is what he would teach on his show instead of CAGW.

      CAGW is just another ‘Blame the Other Guy’ (instead of your poor judgement) — aka Scapegoating which was brought into vogue starting with Sigmund Freud**, the father of psychoanalysis. For years we have moved away from the point of view that the individual is responsible for themselves to the view point that your parents, your teachers and your community is responsible for everything that has gone wrong for or with you.

      This article is a good example of the type of thinking I am talking about. The person switched from psychology to sociology because they did not like the idea of individualism or the positive effects of adversity.

      Sociology versus Psychology – The Social Context of Psychological Pathology and Child Abuse

      … My first few years in university had me studying Freud and Pavlov and Maslow and the like. I was pretty happy with psychology, for a while at least. Then, in about my fourth year of study, the department went “Behaviourist.” At that time humanist and existential psychologists were pushed out of the department and behavioural and cognitive psychologists were hired to replace them. After that I did not last very long. The new focus of the department was distributing to me. It became, as is the nature of behavioral psychology, more about controlling the physical unit with reward and punishment than it was about investigating human potential….

      So, I left Psychology and moved into Sociology. I have to admit I was much happier in Sociology, not because Sociology had a lot to say about transcending pain and suffering, and moving towards holistic health and wellbeing, but because Sociology had a much better view of the cause of pain and suffering than psychology did (even in its humanistic and existentialist forms). Psychology, for all cognitive and behavioral sophistication, tended to “miss the boat” on a lot of different things. In particular psychology, even in its humanistic and existentialist forms, tends to “individualize” pain and suffering. If you have a problem, psychology looks for the cause inside you. This cause can be many different things like genetic heritage, neurological imbalance, faulty thinking processes, or pathological reward structures. Regardless of what it is though the source is always you….

      The more time I spent in Sociology the more I realized that you could never just focus in on the individual to the exclusion of the world around. This is because the individual does not ever, ever, ever exist in isolation. From the time we are born we are in interaction with “things.” These things may be human things like parents, siblings, or teachers, or they can be “institutional” things like schools, or churches, or even whole economies. The point, we are not, nor have we ever been, born in isolation….

      I have a long time interest in “relational violence.” Relational violence is any form of violence perpetrated on one individual. This violence can be physical, psychological, emotional, or spiritual. I have particular interest in child abuse and intimate partner violence. Since I got into counseling a few years ago, and after listening to people’s horror stories about their childhood experiences, I have come to see child abuse as major precursor to mental health issues. The long and the short of it is simple, the violence we experience in our childhood and early adult lives leads to neurosis and pathology. Put another way I would say that mental illness (even physical illness) of any form is never sourced in the individual alone, but in the relations and context that surround us.….

      Put another way I would say that mental illness (even physical illness) of any form is never sourced in the individual alone, but in the relations and context that surround us. EQUALS Blame The Other DUDE!

      And if you think about it Blame The Other DUDE is what the Progressives use as their major weapon.

      What are Blacks now taught? Self sufficiency, drag yourself up by the bootstraps??? HECK NO! If you do not get what you want, blame Whitey and yell RACIST!

      The problem is Blame The Other DUDE for your problems and short comings is very very seductive which is why it works so well.

      And here is the final part of the essay which shows where all this is headed:

      …Third thing we have to do is learn to protect ourselves. If you are like most people you will currently accept pretty high levels of abuse, especially when it comes to family members. You will put up with physical assault, verbal assault, psychological assault,… The research also shows that the more bad experiences you have, the more damaged you become (Moeller, Bachmann, & Moeller, 1993). Open yourself up ..[to]… abuse if you want but know that you will pay an emotional, psychological, and physical price in the end.

      Finally, once we’ve changed our ideas, changed the laws, and taken steps to protect ourselves we are going to have to start to heal. This is true no matter how much abuse you have experienced, and no matter who the perpetrator has been. Abuse damages the body and mind and that damage has to be healed….

      If abusive and neglectful parents (the model for all subsequent intimate relationships) teach us anything they teach us not to get too close to others, and not to trust the ones we love, because eventually we will be disappointed and hurt. The distance we learn to keep in childhood poisons our intimate relationships as adults to the point where many people simply cannot maintain long term marriage (or common law) relationships. It is, at least in our practice, one of the biggest factors in relationship breakdown we see.

      Anyway, as always, the choice is yours. You can hold to misconceived notions of discipline, you can shuck off your own damage, you can pretend that you aren’t implicated in hurting others, and you can invoke ideological justifications, or you can face the truth and begin the hard journey home…. In this sparkling new 21st century, globalized world, we now have more than ever the tools we need to make the changes we know we need to make. Psychologists, Sociologists, parents, teachers, adolescents, business men, politicians, and whatever, it time to unite and fix that which is broken.

      And then we will live forever more in the land of lollipops, rainbows and unicorns.

      I guess this guy forgot Man is the KILLER Ape, a PREDATOR and snowflakes living in their safe spaces who have never heard a harsh word have no defence what so ever against bullies or tyrants. Of course that is just what you want in a serf/slave class.
      ……

      ** Knowing WHY you hate dogs or fear heights is very very useful in dealing with that fear. But it is still up to YOU to do the dealing instead of blaming someone else and letting it go at that. Also wrapping children up in cotton batting and never allowing them to face hard reality gives us the child-adults we now see populating our universities.

      LEADERSHIP: 6 Things I’m Glad I learned About Adversity

      New research suggests that resilience to adversity in our life may be linked to how often we face it. The number of blows a person has taken may affect their mental toughness more than any other factor.

      The study showed that the frequency of adversities faced by an individual in the past assists them in developing resilience to adversities in the future. In essence, past experiences provide a way of predicting how a person will behave when faced with adversity in the future.

      Some of the participants in the study had lived a charmed life and had faced little or no adversity in their life. The researchers found that they were not the ones most satisfied with their lives. Their sense of wellbeing was about the same as those who had suffered several memorable blows in life.

      The participants who scored the highest in wellbeing were those reporting two to six stressful events….

    Bill Nye, the phony science guy.
    He is not a scientist and not a journalist. He is a parasite in a bow tie.

  14. Dr. A says:

    Tony, I believe your analysis summarizes the fact that a large portion of Louisiana is part of the Mississippi River flood plain. That line of reasoning has little to do with the recent flooding in Louisiana as Mississippi River levels were nowhere near flood stage during the flooding. What does geologic evidence of repeated Mississippi River flooding have to do with the recent flood that was not caused by the Mississippi River?
    Bill Nye = mechanical engineer
    Tony Heller = electrical engineer

    • Gator69 says:

      Dr Ofwhat earns another F.

      It is a “flood”plain. Not a Mississippi plain. It floods.

    • RAH says:

      Yes Dr. A.

      A state with an average elevation of 100′ above sea level and which lies at the estuary of the single largest drainage port of North America. And has multiple rivers, bayous, lakes, and swamps, where people inter their dead above ground because of the water table and frequent FLOODING, should never be expected to flood under heavy rains. Right?

      Sometimes I wish this sight had a filter button for dumb asses!

      • Dr. A says:

        Sure there’s lots of flood plains and Louisiana is mostly low elevation relative to sea level. The issue is Tony’s informative map and commentary clearly only describes the Mississippi River flood plain. And as you alleged geniuses know the Mississippi River was not responsible for this particular flood. Repeated depositions of silt and sediment actually reflect massive Mississippi River flooding throughout geologic time. A “geologist” would know this evidence has nothing to do with the recent flood.

        For those that need a filter to identify misrepresentations: the grey shaded area in the map flanks the Mississippi River. It does not show the flood plains relevant to the recent flood.

        • gator69 says:

          It does not show the flood plains relevant to the recent flood.

          :lol:

          • RAH says:

            Dr A appears to lack a basic understanding of the concept of drainage. That precipitation that falls on relatively flat land drains away much more slowly than that which falls on steeper ground. That alluvial soils in areas with normally high water tables simply can’t abosorb much more water and thus heavy rains result in accumulation on the surface and result in flooding.

          • AndyG55 says:

            Dr A has shown a distinct lack of unbderstanding about most things to do with science, engineering etc

            Dr of cafe ? ie Arts lecturer?

          • gator69 says:

            Dr of Baristology?

          • Gail Combs says:

            No, No Gator it is Dr. Bare A$$tology

    • Gail Combs says:

      Tony Heller = GEOLOGIST as well as electrical engineer.

      Geology teaches you not to build on the d@mn flood plain it is part of the river. Is that simple enough for you?
