Bill Nye says "the planet's on f****ing fire" and we need to "grow the f*** up"

By Caitlin O'Kane

Updated on: May 14, 2019 / 10:06 AM / CBS News

Bill Nye deviated from his kid-friendly "Science Guy" persona on Sunday night to help John Oliver talk about the severity of climate change. Nye proved he's not always the mild-mannered nerd millennials grew up with when he joined Oliver during his episode detailing carbon pricing and the Green New Deal.

Oliver first outlined the case for the Green New Deal, the environment and jobs proposal introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. "To its eternal credit, the Green New Deal has succeeded in getting people talking, but that won't mean anything unless that talk turns into action," Oliver said.

"We're going to need a lot of different policies working tandem, and we have to take action right now," the comedian said, towards the end of the segment. "But you don't have to just take that from me. Instead, I'm happy to say Bill Nye has actually agreed to drive the urgency home at this point by actually doing one of his enjoyable, lighthearted demonstrations."

After the tongue-in-cheek introduction, Nye gave a demonstration that was much less lighthearted — and used much stronger language — than usual.
Climate Change More

 
"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. "What I'm saying is, the planet's on f****ing fire." The Science Guy then took a blowtorch to a globe, setting it ablaze.

"There are several options to put out the proverbial fire on Earth," Nye explains. "Are any of them free? No, of course not, you idiots. Grow the f*** up. You're adults now."

As the globe burns, he declares: "I didn't mind explaining photosynthesis to you when you were 12, but you're adults now. This is an actual crisis, got it?" Nye's expletive-laden rant was received with laughter from the audience. Oliver ends the episode by joking that he's "absolutely on board" with Nye's "gritty reboot."

Really? 

My boys got it at age twelve or so when I told them, "having a gutter mouth doesn't make you a big boy."

Ridiculing his own fans?  That reminds me of the SNL skit where William Shatner goes to a Star Trek convention and ridicules the attendees:  "This was a television show.  It only lasted three seasons.  It's nothing to build your lives on!'  He then had to backtrack when he realized he was burning his meal ticket.

Like Ann Coulter said, Taking advice on climate policy from Bill Nye is like taking advice on Naval policy from Captain Kangaroo.

Or, If things start to cool off, we could enter another ice age.

I wonder if they have a policy prescription to stop China and India from belching pollution like a house on fire...

You can tell who's taking the big money from the Left because the Left will make you feel like a god who's ten thousand times smarter than everyone else, and you will then act like one.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Exactly, he's a children's entertainer.  The left like him because you can understand what he's saying.  Leftists like your content dumbed down

Sadly I generally agree with Bill Nye on global warming(though I doubt we agree on appropriate and useful actions to address the problem) but he just comes across as a cranky old man.   I'm curious as to why or if anyone thinks this sort of stupidity will convince anyone.   I strongly suspect he nor anyone else does, they just want to smugly express their moral superiority. 


Also why is it that none of the greens ever mention that the US has actually reduced our carbon emmissions over the last few years?  Is it because we've done so by shifting from oil/coal to natural gas from fracking?

Global warming concerns me and I would like to take prudent action.

The problem is that in the left in their typical style have a solution that does nothing to solve the problem.  They want socialism, greater government control over the economy.  Their solutions do little to nothing to combat climate change while greatly growing government.

There are two and only two things we could do starting now today within our technology capability that would have a huge impact on carbon emissions, and Democrats oppose them both.  Those solutions are nuclear power and increased fracking for natural gas and building natural gas power plants to replace coal.

I'd rather do nothing than what the left proposes and they will ensure we do nothing other than what they selfishly want.  So we are in a stalemate

Getting real tired of this gasbag. Please allow me to poke a few holes in this "Green New Deal" and address Bill's "science".

Science shows that the global average temp has risen 1.4 degrees F since 1880. So to claim that it will raise 4-8 degrees in the next 80 years is disingenuous at best. Especially when you consider that much of what we use/make today is becoming more eco-friendly all the time.  Also we as a people are becoming better stewards of this planet.

So people like Nye and OAC scream that we need to do something right meow!! and then come forward with this "Green New Deal" B.S. that does little to nothing to actually address or correct anything environmentally. All it does is waste trillions of taxpayer dollars, most of which will only line the pockets of their friends.

I do not disagree that we need to be better, but this junk they try to shove down our throats is NOT the answer. The answer is people taking responsibility for their own shit, or at least that's a starting point.

Yep, the Green New Deal as proposed by AOC was little more than socialism* thinly veiled as an environmental program. 

Actual socialism, not the Nordic style capitalism with lots of socialist policy.

Yes, they are a capitalist economy with socialist spending.

They also have massive energy revenue.

It still blew out the bank and they had to cut programs.

Democrats are far more ideologically leftist driven.  They won't stop no matter what happens.  And they oppose increasing energy revenue.  The Democrats are on the road to Venezuela
