It was an off-the-cuff argument, sure. But when the Secretary of State suggested theoretically that Syria could hand over its chemical weapons stockpile to the rest of the world if it wanted to avoid a conflict, it wasn’t considered a workable solution, even by Kerry … until Russia bit. Now, while there’s still work to be done to make a deal happen, and it’s not a sure thing, it certainly seems like Kerry did something (though he’s playing it off) which has the potential to live up to the standard suggested in this Simpsons clip above.

Bill Nye: No, billion.
Fox News Anchor: — you know, it’s not like we’ve been up there burning fossil fuels.
Bill Nye: Uh, no, volcanoes are not connected to the burning of fossil fuels, it’s connected to mining, but the big thing for us, on my side of this thing, is the science is true, and so when you discover — the people who got really got involved in climate change, got involved in it often by studying Venus, the planet Venus. So the physics, the science that happens on Venus, is the same as the science that happens on the earth, the science that happens on the moon, in this case the geology the study of rocks, that happens on the moon, is the same science that happens on the earth. So when you say to yourself, well, I’m going to ignore all the evidence of climate change, you’re saying, I’m going to ignore the best ideas anybody’s ever had, that’s science. And so this is quite troubling to those of us on our side of it.
