Bill Nye joins protest against Trump's move to pull out of Paris climate accord

Bill Nye, host of Netflix's "Bill Nye Saves the World," posted pictures of himself protesting outside the White House on Thursday moments after President Donald Trump officially announced his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.

Nye joined 350 DC, a nonprofit group focused on "climate and environmental justice," to quickly organize a rally outside the White House. According to the Facebook page for the event, 1,000 people attended.

“The demonstration began after today’s announcement,” Nye said in a tweet. “People are concerned about the lack of US leadership jeopardizing the whole planet.”

Mimicking Trump's Twitter verbiage, Nye tweeted “U.S. chooses not to stay in Paris accord. The ‘Losers?’ Everyone on Earth. Sad,” when it was announced that Trump was pulling the U.S. out of the climate agreement.

Nye, a self-styled "Science Guy," has famously pushed the left-wing climate change and global warming alarmist agenda.

In April, Nye appeared on a CNN panel with William Happer, a physicist at Princeton University. Happer — a real scientist — opposed Nye's take on the effects of carbon dioxide on the environment. Nye chastised CNN for having Happer on, whom he called a "climate change skeptic," and "not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change."

Nye later responded to Happer's suggestion that the globe was not warming as fast as climate scientists predicted by citing data about the oceans absorbing the heat brought on by global warming. The claim that the oceans were warming was disproved by NASA in 2014.

In April 2016, YouTube channel "cfact" asked Nye if the suggestion to throw climate deniers in jail was too extreme. Nye responded by asking if it was appropriate to send people from Enron or the cigarette industry to jail for lying.

“We’ll see what happens. Was it appropriate to jail the guys at Enron?” Nye asked. “Was it appropriate to jail people from the cigarette industry who insisted that this addictive product was not addictive?”
