Some of you might remember that when talking to an atheist, Faux News’ Bill O’Reilly said “Tide comes in, tide goes out, you can’t explain it.” Of the ridicule he received for that, my favorite was from none other than Neil Degrasse Tyson, who simply retorted, “I can explain it.” He can. O’Reilly is the one who can’t.
Apparently, O’Reilly now wants to dispute that global warming is caused by humans. Poor Bill … in spite of having decided to push that idea he doesn’t seem to have actual evidence. He, and his staff, don’t even seem to know what are the “best arguments” to support it.
Apparently they’re so desperate to find the “evidence” they don’t have, that DeSmogBlog reports one of O’Reilly’s producers even asked them for help (click the image for a larger, clearer view):
I’ve redacted the email address and phone number because I don’t care to encourage anyone to “mailbomb” them or harrass them by phone. But I do encourage people to ridicule them.
Allow me to offer Bill O’Reilly’s producers the argument they’re looking for: “Climate gets colder, climate gets hotter, you can’t explain it.”
No, Bill, you can’t explain it.
