'Science Guy' Bill Nye Screams: 'The Planet's On F****** Fire!'

15 May, 2019, 00:56 | Author: Darnell Taylor

During a segment on Oliver's HBO show, Nye - famous for "Bill Nye the Science Guy", as well as his staunch liberal schtick on climate change - appeared to demonstrate the effect of climate change on the planet. (Nye was referring to degrees Celsius; the equivalent change in Fahrenheit is roughly 7 to 14 degrees). "What I'm saying is the planet's on (expletive) fire".

After explaining the idea being carbon taxes, and the difficulty politicians have getting people to accept the idea of a new tax, Nye returns for another experiment to cut through all the talk.

Nye supported the AOC and the Green New Deal, selling the latter as a solution for global warming. So, he urged his viewers to grow up and make tough choices. I didn't mind explaining photosynthesis to when you were 12, but you're adults now, and this is an actual crisis!

Oliver ended the segment by telling the audience that he was "absolutely onboard" with Nye's "gritty reboot". "We're going to need a lot of different policies working in tandem, and we have to take action right now!" "Got it? Safety glasses off motherf-ker". "Of course not! Nothing's free you idiots!"

Once again, after a round-up of recent news coverage about carbon pricing and the Green New Deal, Oliver pleaded for a "fun" experiment. "Happy now?" It looks like the Bill Nye as we knew and loved him has left the building.

"It is a nonbinding resolution that very briefly sets out some extremely aggressive goals, including achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions, meeting 100 percent 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". "That is seven pages shorter than the menu for the Cheesecake Factory".

The clip encompassed much more than just Bill Nye's viral video sketch.

"But while the rollout of this conversation has been bumpy, it is great that the Green New Deal has started one", Oliver said.

"I think we've all broken Bill Nye", Oliver says at the end.
