Bill Nye Considers ‘Climate Impact’ Tax on Large Families
Scientist Bill Nye and a panelist on his Netflix show discussed penalizing families for having “extra kids” because of their claimed effect on climate change.
According to The Daily Caller, Tuesday’s episode of “Bill Nye Saves The Earth” included a segment that was essentially about population control.
“Should we have policies that penalize people for having extra kids in the developed world?” Nye asked Travis Rieder, an academic at Johns Hopkins University.
“I do think we should at least consider it,” Rieder replied.
“Well, ‘at least consider it’ is like, ‘do it,'” Nye countered.
Known for his children’s television program “Bill Nye the Science Guy,” Nye believes in climate change and often bashes anyone who casts doubt on the belief that man has contributed to rising temperatures across the Earth.
Nye appeared on CNN last weekend to talk about Earth Day and ended up criticizing the network for including a climate change skeptic on its panel.
“I will say, as much as I love CNN, you’re doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic and not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change,” Nye said.
Last year, Nye insinuated that climate change skeptics should be jailed.
