Bill Nye: It's time to grow up, realize planet is on fire

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.

"By the end of this century, if temperatures keep rising, the average temperature on Earth could go up another 4 to 8 degrees", Nye said to Oliver.

"There are a lot of things we could do to put it out", he said. No, of course not. Shaming his audience further with the barb, "Nothing is free, you idiots". Grow the f**k up. But you don't have to just take that from me; instead, I'm happy to say that Bill Nye has actually agreed to help drive the urgency home at this point by actually doing one of his enjoyable lighthearted demonstrations.

New York Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is pushing for a so-called Green New Deal to combat climate change in the USA, finding an ally in Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders.

Bill Nye wants to remind you of the seriousness of global warming and he's not mincing words. "No one solution is going to be almost enough" to combat climate change, and there are lots of ideas.

"When we release carbon", Nye said, pointing to pictures of various disasters taped to a chalkboard, "all of us pay for that in the form of things like fires, floods and crop failures". "I didn't mind explaining photosynthesis to you when you were 12, but you're adults now. Got it?!" Removing his glasses, he snapped, "Safety glasses off, motherf*****s!"

The Green New Deal was unanimously rejected in the Senate in March after Senate Republicans pushed for an early vote on the deal, a move Senate Democrats have called a "stunt." Oliver focused on, and explained, carbon pricing.

Bill Nye is no more Mr. 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.
