Bill Nye drops the F-bombs in exasperated climate change plea

If we're to save the Earth from a climate-related catastrophe in 21 years, we need to take drastic action, and one proposal getting discussed a lot is the Green New Deal, John Oliver said on Sunday's Last Week Tonight. (Nye was referring to degrees Celsius; the equivalent change in Fahrenheit is roughly 7 to 14 degrees).

"What I'm saying is the planet's on f-king fire".

Nye first shows up at the 10:20 mark of the video below to explain "the complicated logic behind carbon pricing".

Bill Nye wants to remind you of the seriousness of global warming and he's not mincing words. So, he urged his viewers to grow up and make tough choices.

"I didn't mind explaining photosynthesis to you when you were 12".

"But you're adults now, and this is an actual crisis".

She added, "We never really considered not bringing back 'Fresh Off The Boat .' The show's just too strong for us". So I can both love the show/cast/crew but at the same time be disappointed that I lost that other unrelated job".

Oliver ended the segment by telling the audience that he was "absolutely onboard" with Nye's "gritty reboot".

"There are a lot of things we could do to put it out." he said, gesturing to the sand, blanket, and fire extinguisher, "Are any of them free?" Nothing's free, you idiots. "Safety glasses off, motherf-ers".

Bill Nye is done messing around. Watch to the end to see "gritty reboot" Bill Nye drop F-bombs and set the world on fire.

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." "That is seven pages shorter than the menu for the Cheesecake Factor". In the segment, Oliver explained some of the ideas in the bill and why it seemed like a good way to get a conversation going about how people can reduce their carbon emissions.

Nye, continuing his tirade, added to the late night host's sentiments, saying, "Putting a fee on carbon creates incentives to emit less carbon, and, more importantly, it also incentivizes the development of low-carbon technology, which is huge, because that's vital to reducing emissions globally".
