'Science Guy' Bill Nye: Fight climate change with tax on cow flatulence


God this dude is killing it out there.


@mu the Washington Times is really trying to hurt Bill Nyes image, and climate change measures by focusing on a part that hurts regular people in the pocket most.

They highlight cows and beef for a reason, the un-countered "more bang for your buck" talking point. Can also consider duckduckgo.com/?q=site%3Awashi

The "more bang for your buck" claim is false on it's face. Nyes claim is to make people pay for CH4 true cost. If beef is worth that much, and you alledgedly believe in the market..

@jasper Ineresting, I was not aware of that. My opinon: you can't bow to every tabloid with a vendetta against you. He's fine, I think, and can defend himself if he feels like he needs to—likely he's ignoring this crap because of en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streis (if you ignore trying to hide or fight some opinion, the public will forget about it quickly)

@mu is him defending himself "an attempt to hide, remove, or censor a piece of information" seems really uncharitable for his situation. I think sooner can see it as dogpiling from other wingnut welfare recipients.
