Bill Nye the Science Guy Just Explained Global Warming to Adults, and This Time He's Dropping F Bombs All Over the Place

Last Week Tonight/YouTube

In Sunday night's Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, the HBO program host enlisted the aid of Bill Nye the Science Guy. Nye—who holds a degree in mechanical engineering from Cornell—is best known for teaching children the basics of science on his Emmy winning television show.

But his appearance on HBO Sunday was strictly for the adults. Oliver asked Nye to explain carbon pricing as it relates to climate change and global warming.


Oliver did a segment on the Green New Deal for his program, which can be seen in its entirety at the end of this article. Oliver wanted to clear up the misinformation campaign rhetoric spread by those opposed to it and clarify:

"...what it is, what it isn’t and, most importantly, where we should maybe go from here."

Nye's full appearance on the program can be viewed here.

At the very end of the segment when Oliver again threw things over to the science educator, Nye stated:

"By the end of this century, if emissions keep rising, the average temperature on Earth could go up another four to eight degrees."

He added:

"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."

Nye explained why a revenue generating solution—like the Green New Deal—was needed to address climate change brought on by global warming.

He continued:

"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."

Oliver—after saying we had broken Bill Nye—endorsed the "gritty new reboot."

Others were on board with Nye's no nonsense facts too. Clips of Nye's comments quickly made it to social media.

Although some took exception to the language and missed the message, but others pointed it out.

The Green New Deal economic stimulus plan was proposed by New York Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Democratic Senator Edward J. Markey.

The Republican controlled Senate took a pass on the proposal in March to the surprise of no one, but several 2020 presidential candidates embraced it.

The Green New Deal currently has support from Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand, all Democrats or independents.

In December, President Donald Trump established the United States Space Force, a sixth branch of the United States Army.

The goal of the force is to protect United States assets in outer space from foreign rivals and is slated to cost around $2 billion in the next five years.

Today, Trump unveiled the official logo for the Space Force, but people think it bears a striking resemblance to another iconic symbol.

People were stunned this past July when President Donald Trump tweeted that four Congresswomen of color—Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)—should "go back" to where they came from.

He also falsely claimed they "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe..."

Three of the Congresswomen were born in the United States. Omar was a refugee from Somalia. All are Americans.

At a campaign rally days later in North Carolina, President Donald Trump mentioned Congresswoman Omar—and got a strong reaction from the crowd.

While bigotry is common at a Trump rally, it became even more blatant when Trump's supporters began chanting "Send her back," echoing the calls from Trump's tweet for them to "go back" to where they came from.

As Democratic House impeachment managers make their case against President Donald Trump, one of his favorite news networks is going to lengths to keep the bevy of evidence against him from reaching their viewers' ears.

At first, Fox News tried scrolling Trump's so-called accomplishments alongside live video of the historic proceedings. Now, the network's latest attempt to distract from the Democrats' arguments is raising eyebrows even higher.

Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman was one of the first witnesses in the House of Representatives' initial impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Vindman testified before the House's select committee on impeachment late last year after hearing Trump's infamous July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The administration of President Donald Trump relies on its white Evangelical base to keep its support consistently hovering around 40 percent.

In keeping with this, President Donald Trump often invokes anti-abortion values he claims to hold dear. He's falsely claimed that Democrats are determined to rip babies from their mothers' wombs and that parents often discuss with their doctors whether or not to keep the baby...after the baby is born.

These claims are patently false, but they rile up the base.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos seems to be playing right along in promoting abortion hysteria, if a recent speech is any indication.

After hours of evidence presented by the House Impeachment managers in the Senate trial against President Donald Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) strayed even further into the abyss of fanaticism as he defended the President to reporters.

Graham, a Trump critic turned ally, didn't attempt to refute any of the myriad evidence laid out by Democrats, but instead dismissed the claims that Trump did anything wrong when he withheld congressionally approved aid from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into his political rival.
