Bill Nye “The Science Guy” is back at it being an idiot. While the left is in love with him, anyone who likes to deal with facts is not. Well, Bill Nye lies again, this time it’s about the constitution. He claimed that the Constitution supports the environmental activists who took to the streets to protest Trump’s cuts to federal agencies.
Per the Daily Caller:
“If you suppress science, if you pretend climate change isn’t a real problem, you will fall behind other countries that do invest in science, that do invest in basic research,” Nye told CNN Saturday as the “March for Science” took place.
The march took place in dozens of cities across the world, and the main march took place in Washington, D.C., Saturday. Nye spoke at the rally where thousands carried signs deriding skeptics of global warming and cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other bureaucracies that fund or conduct scientific research.
“And it is interesting to note, I think, that Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution refers to the progress of science and the useful arts,” Nye said.
“Useful arts in 18th Century usage would be what we call engineering or city planning or architecture,” Nye said.
Nye’s used the argument before to underscore how “unpatriotic” it is to not have the federal government hand out billions of taxpayer dollars to universities, corporations and research institutions.
“Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution says the government shall ‘promote the progress of science and useful arts,’” Nye told Vox in 2015 — Vox didn’t correct him or fact check his claim.
“So if you’re a politician looking to derail the progress of science, I think you’re not doing your job,” Nye said.
And, like last time, he’s 100 percent incorrect.

Bill Nye Lies About the Constitution
Bill Nye is talking about the Constitution’s Copyright Clause. Here it is:
“To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries.”
Bill Nye certainly doesn’t have a future as “The Constitution Guy” that’s for sure. This has nothing to do with science. It has to do with establishing a legal framework to protect intellectual property rights.
