      Meanwhile, the moon is cooling …. and shrinking. I wonder if they introduce taxes and hysteria, the problem will be fixed?

      Bill Nye famous for faking a simple CO2 experiment

      The most egregious faked presentation in that video was the scene with the split screen thermometers, edited to appear as if the temperature in the jar of elevated CO2 level was rising faster than the jar without elevated CO2 level.
      It turns out that the thermometers were never in the jar recording the temperature rise presented in the split screen and the entire presentation was nothing but stagecraft and editing.

        It was supposed to be a simple side by side jars with thermometers and heat lamps but one jar has CO2

        Analysis of the video shows the apparatus being moved around , even thermometers being swapped and the glass jars creating optical distortion of thermometers – missing in the ‘closeup’

        has nothing to do with ‘greenhouse gas theory’ on an earth scale but it was supposed to be a high school style experiment
