Bill Nye the Science Guy may have been geared towards children decades ago, but now he’s older and his audience is all grown-up — so he’s keeping it REAL about climate change and the proposed Green New Deal.
In a segment about The Green New Deal on the latest episode of John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight, Bill Nye ended with a few expletives about how serious our climate crisis actually is.
“Here, I’ve got an experiment for you,” he said. “Safety glasses on. By the end of this century, if emissions keep rising, the average temperature on Earth could go up another four to eight degrees. What I’m saying is the planet’s on fucking fire. There are a lot of things we could do to put it out. Are any of them free? No! Of course not! Nothing’s free, you idiots. Grow the fuck up. You’re not children anymore. I didn’t mind explaining photosynthesis to you when you were 12 but you’re adults now and this is an actual crisis. Got it? Safety glasses off, motherfuckers.”
Well, alright. If Bill Nye says it’s a crisis — it’s a crisis.
