Nye's a policy shill. There's no other way to describe his barf-worthy program on Netflix. This JT-Nye combo is another darned good example of the vast difference between policy-based science and science-based policy.

I'd like to think Scheer would have the good sense to avoid getting mired in this kind of mucky nonsense altogether.

Sorry but if you're knocking my man Bill you are definitely some kind of monster. He's a science communicater and promotor. Who on Earth would be opposed to that?

Then I'm a monster, LOL. Have you watched his show on Netflix? I actually felt quite sorry for him, thinking he'd gotten duped into participating, and then I realized it's a series. He's gone from science presenter to policy shill, cut from the same cloth as Suzuki. Such a shame.

BTW, Omnitheo: he actually does hold a bachelor of science.

Keeping this on topic, though: I'd hope Scheer would do a better job of steering clear of this mucky nonsense.

Haven't seen his new show. I don't have TV. I'm definately going to take his side most of the time over someone like GB who doesn't understand science or a Conservative youtube commentator (really Glacier?).

It's too bad the Conservatives don't dump their social policies, put together a comprehensive climate change policy that is mindful of jobs and have a policy of doing absolutely nothing different with our gun laws. I might actually vote for them in the future.

Why is it about taking sides? It should be about science, and it should be about science-based policy, not policy-based science.

I know you're not a fan of carbon taxes. What should Scheer's climate policy look like, to secure your vote?

LOL - what a silly uninformed comment. Bill understands the Green in shilling for Big Green all right. He has that message loud and clear.

or a Conservative youtube commentator (really Glacier?).


Yes and I assume you didn't watch what this "conservative commentator" had to say. Can't ever question that innate confirmation bias. Thanks for posting Glacier. I wonder how much longer Crowder is going to be allowed to be on YouTube now that the 10,000 strong SJW army is coming after guys like him.

What social policies should they dump?

put together a comprehensive climate change policy that is mindful of jobs


What does this even mean?

and have a policy of doing absolutely nothing different with our gun laws.


What's wrong with our current gun laws?

I might actually vote for them in the future.


I hope you never do, as I honestly hope that the Conservatives never try to pander to the completely loony far left. That would be disastrous. Keep voting for the nutty NDP, we're all good with that.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/opinion/scheer-jerusalem-pledge-1.4554101

"This is why Conservative leader Andrew Scheer's abruptly delivered promise that a Tory government would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital feels strange and wrong. Scheer's pledge, posted on the Conservative Party website, answers a question that few Canadians are asking."

SNIP

"Where Scheer's political credibility with Canadian voters is concerned, the most important message he can send is that he won't be taking his policy cues from Trump, who is one of the most massively unpopular American political figures in the history of modern Canadian polling. Unfortunately, with his monkey-see, monkey-do Jerusalem stunt, Scheer is making me wonder what other bad Trump ideas he'll be looking to borrow."

Why is it a "bad" idea exactly? Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Pretending it isn't is a cowardly act, and hasn't worked to fix anything in 60 years. Good on Scheer for having the guts to follow the leader. Too bad our current ball-less boy blunder of a PM doesn't have the guts to do it.



Nikki Haley - what a great ambassador! I just love how she sticks it to those Israel hating leftist bags of crap at the UN.
