Bill Nye the 'Science Guy' calls out 'climate change denier' on CNN in wake of Louisiana flooding

From the Independent:

"Bill Nye the "Science Guy" has warned that the floods in Louisiana “will get worse” as the oceans rise and temperatures warm, and he condemned the network for denying climate change.

“Here at CNN you seem to have a climate change meteorologist,” he said.

“You can knock yourselves out, but this is a big problem. It’s not going to go away.”

Mr Nye, chief executive of the Planetary Society, did not mention any names but was likely referring to Chad Myers, who said in 2008 that it would be “arrogant” to think that humans could affect weather.

Mr Myers responded in an article that he fully accepted climate change in 2013.

In an interview with Chris Cuomo, Mr Nye said the flooding would “certainly” happen again and become larger in scale, even if individual floods were hard to predict.
