Appearing Sunday on HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Bill Nye launched into an profanity-laden and hyperbolic rant about climate change, exclaiming “the planet’s on f*cking fire!”
“By the end of this century, if emissions keep rising, the average temperature on Earth could go up another four to eight degrees,” Nye said while discussing the Green New Deal, the far-left proposed stimulus package that aims to address global warming and economic inequality.
“What I’m saying is the planet’s on f*cking 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 f*ck 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 actually crisis, got it?”
Safety glasses off, mother***s,” he added.
Nye remarks come after the Senate voted down the Green New Deal package by a vote of 57-0. Notably, 43 Democrats voted “present” for it.
The concept has since been endorsed by numerous 2020 Democrat White House hopefuls like Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Cory Booker (D-NJ).
In a rant of his own, Oliver defended the proposal against those who dismissed the Green New Deal as a pie-in-the-sky proposal. (Language warning. Read More)
