Where are Fox News anchors getting their information about the moon?
Recently, Bill Nye The Science guy visited Fox News to discuss the discovery of volcanos on the moon.
During the conversation, anchor Jon Scott asked Nye if this breakthrough somehow debunks climate change, saying, “Does it go, you know, anywhere close to the climate change debate that’s underway here on earth? I mean, you know, if the moon had erupting volcanoes, a few years, well, a few million years ago, however you want to put it -you know, it’s not like we’ve been up there burning fossil fuels.”
Nye takes a deep breath and a long blink, then calmly explains that burning fossil fuels is not associated with volcanoes.
He then states, “When you say to yourself, ‘Well, I’m going to ignore all the evidence of climate change,’ you’re saying, ‘I’m gonna ignore the best ideas that anybody’s ever had.’ That’s science. And so this is quite troubling.”
I knew Nye had a way with explaining things to children—I’m glad he’s using this skill at Fox News to shed a little light on the moon.
