Bill Nye (yes, The Science Guy!) was on Rachel Maddow last month to rebut the anti-AGW right-wing propagandists, and he does something otherwise unfathomable — he turns a popular tactic of these same right-wing AGW deniers against them, and calls their anti-science, anti-reality denialism “unpatriotic”.
Yes, this is hyperbole. Hyperbole on the same scale of those that use the term when people dislike what the facts about reality happen to be. But it stands to reason that jingoists are arguably much less patriotic than people who would fight to defend the human species against its own missteps.
Wish I’d seen this when it was fresh. Oh well, it’s still awesome now. Bill Nye kicks eleven flavors of ass.
