Bill Nye “The Science Guy” posted a link on his Facebook fan page to a DeSmogBlog article about climate-denier Marc Morano, who turned down a $20,000 bet with Nye on whether or not the planet will keep getting hotter.

NASA was having none of it.

NASA went on to point how denialists only focus on one aspect of measuring warming as a tactic to support their claims.
