Sarah Palin Mocks Bill Nye ‘He’s As Much A Scientist As I Am’

Palin was promoting the movie “Climate Hustle”

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin called out popular science educator Bill Nye Thursday while promoting a new anti-climate change movie.

At a screening of the documentary “Climate Hustle,” which claims to expose man-made global warming as a hoax, Palin attacked Nye, Fortune reports, criticizing his credentials.

“Bill Nye is as much a scientist as I am,” Palin said. “He’s a kids’ show actor, he’s not a scientist.”

Palin mentioned Nye after he appeared in a brief clip where he said that climate change deniers will be rejected by Americans, according to Fortune.

Palin may not have done a background check on Nye’s credentials. “The Science Guy” has a mechanical engineering degree from Cornell, is a visiting professor at the university, holds several patents–including one for an improved ballet slipper—and even designed sundials for NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover.
