Weather Channel founder calls Bill Nye ‘a pretend scientist in a bow tie’. He should also have included totalitarian and pompous.

Weather Channel founder calls Bill Nye ‘a pretend scientist in a bow tie’

A stormy fight is brewing between Weather Channel founder John Coleman and Bill Nye the Science Guy — who bashed a new movie featuring Coleman that denies the existence of global warming.
“I have always been amazed that anyone would pay attention to Bill Nye, a pretend scientist in a bow tie,” Coleman said Friday, according to
The science smackdown started after Nye shunned the film “Climate Hustle,” which Coleman introduces, and warned viewers not to take it seriously.
“I think it will expose your point of view as very much in the minority and very much not in our national interest and the world’s interest,” Nye said of the movie, according to the climate change website.
But Coleman, who has been a meteorologist for 60 years, fired back that the flick is legit, saying Nye spouts junk science.

“As a man who has studied the science of meteorology for over 60 years and received the AMS (American Meteorological Society’s) ‘Meteorologist of the Year’ award, I am totally offended that Nye gets the press and media attention he does. And I am rooting for the ‘Climate Hustle’ film to become a huge hit — bigger than ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ by Al Gore,” Coleman said.
Coleman also slammed Nye for claiming earlier this month that climate change skeptics should face jail time.
“That is the most awful thing since Galileo was jailed for saying the Earth was not the center of the Universe,” Coleman said.
“In 20 or 30 years, when Nye is an old man, he will realize how wrong he was as the Earth continues to be a just a great place to live,” he said.
Coleman was the original weatherman on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
The movie hits theaters May 2 for one day only.
