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

"No one solution is going to be almost enough" to combat climate change, and there are lots of ideas.

Bill Nye is exhausted of the BS! Or the speed of light?

The "science guy" continues to draw attention for his appearance on John Oliver's climate-themed show Sunday night, mainly because Nye dropped a number of f-bombs while making his points. This time, though, it definitely wasn't written for kids.

Oliver, who was fact-checking Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D-N.Y.) comprehensive Green New Deal, cued a segment Nye filmed for Oliver's show. What is so bad about finding a way to make all those things better for our planet?

"By the end of this century, if emissions keep rising, the average temperature on Earth could go up another four to eight degrees", Nye says, losing his patience. Safety glasses off, motherf***ers.? "This is an actual crisis - got it?"

Jeremy Kyle guest death ‘deeply concerning’ as PM wades into row
Machinery operator Steve Dymond, 63, has been named as the guest whose death has rocked the nation by The Sun . ITV added that "appropriate solutions" are found for a guest post-show should they need any ongoing support.

"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". "What I'm saying is the planet is on fucking fire", he says while taking a torch to a globe. Shaming his audience further with the barb, "Nothing is free, you idiots". He first described the Green New Deal and the frenzy of media coverage from both sides that has followed.

"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. That is seven pages shorter than the menu for the Cheesecake Factory".

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.

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