A couple of days ago, Bill Nye was asked about his opinion on climate change in politics. He then proceeded on accusing investigative journalists of not pushing the issue hard enough. But climate change in politics is a delicate issue.
The Science Guy was upset on the reporters for not acting aggressively enough. The Republicans are getting away from this subject by declaring that they are “doubters.” Maybe it helps them get out of tight spots during debates, but that attitude should make their chances at getting elected pretty questionable.
It’s one thing to have a political candidate that eludes climate change topics by saying he is a “doubter”, and completely another thing to have a president that is uninformed in current scientific research and the climatic changes that are currently happening on a global scale.
Republicans are insisting that they doubt a scientific fact. There was an entire conference about climate change and its disastrous effects in Paris, last year.
A Republican candidate would take over the oval office and direct his attention towards anything else besides climate change. While the whole world fights to keep it in check.
Going back to Bill Nye, the former TV-show host declared that he believes that the “doubting” comes from the fact that the candidates are receiving benefits from fossil fuel exploitation.
The Science Guy believes that the best way in which the political figures can deal with the impeding menace of climate change and an uninterrupted consumption of fossil fuels is by declaring that they don’t believe in the existence of the change.
By declaring themselves non-believers, or “doubters,” they avoid any further headaches during debates, and who knows, later on when they come to office, they are able to continue supporting the companies that are burning fossil fuels in America.
The best example of denier for the sake of denying is Donald Trump. When asked about his opinion on climate change, the Republican candidate, said that he knows that the climate is changing because in one day the weather is sunny, and then in another it rains.
But he doubts that climate change really exists. Then he carried on giving confusing examples of climate change instances. Trump is a hard egg to crack because most people still don’t know if he’s using his rhetoric to confuse his opponents or the debate host, or because he is completely uninformed on state matters.
