Bill Nye on Climate Change: "The Planet's on F**king Fire"

Bill Nye wants to remind you of the seriousness of global warming and he's not mincing words

The beloved science educator and television personality, best known for his children's program Bill Nye the Science Guy, appeared on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on Sunday in a segment on the plan to fight climate change, and started throwing the eff-word about - a lot.

"There are a lot of things we could do to put it out, are any of them free?" he asked, gesturing towards the other items on the desk. No, of course not. Grow the f**k up.

The segment was both informative and hilarious while debunking the lies surrounding what was actually in "The Green New Deal".

Nye, adding a few more expletives in his explanation, said none of these options to address global warming come free.

"I didn't mind explaining photosynthesis to you when you were 12".

Nye has always been an advocate for climate change measures, going toe to toe with Fox News' Tucker Carlson on the legitimacy of the science behind climate change, and debating whether climate change is human-driven.

"Safety glasses off." He finished, before blowing on the globe, still on fire, and walking off screen. The whole Green New Deal is just 14 pages long.

"It is a non-binding resolution that very briefly sets out some extremely aggressive goals, including achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions, meeting 100% of the country's power demand through clean, renewable and zero-emission energy sources and creating millions of good, high-wage jobs in the United States".

You may see the full video of Bill Nye in his viral teaching about climate change in the video player below. "That is seven pages shorter than the menu for the Cheesecake Factor". But that won't mean anything unless that talk now turns to actions, and putting a price on carbon could potentially be one of them, although let me reiterate, it will not be enough on its own by a longshot. Using science icon Bill Nye the Science Guy to explain the concept, Oliver tried to make the idea of introducing a new tax a little more feasible and innocuous.

When Mr. Oliver asked Mr. Nye if he had "a fun experiment for us", the show cuts to Mr. Nye saying: "Here I have a fun experiment for you".
