It's weird that it's actually irresponsible for CNN as a news organization to have the vice chair of the Energy and Commerce Committee on to talk about climate change as if her views represented some kind of reasonable alternative to Nye's and there was some sort of actual debate here.

It's called "psuedosymmetry." The myth that certain issues have two equally valid sides.

I really, really hope that Nye runs for President. It'd be like the "an actor as a president!?!?" thing from Back to the Future but the opposite.
Well I hate to sound like I'm pigeon-holing all scientists into a group of people, but there is a level of charisma that comes with the role. A scientist's job is, well, to hopefully inform the president on issues like climate change so said president will know what to say.
Nye should quit now before the trolling burns him out completely. There's no effective arguing against ignorance.
Sadly yeah. He's already painted into a corner - any refusal to debate will be met with a "SEE, MISTER SCIENCE IS AFRAID OF THE TRUTH" and every debate will lead to at best another debate where nothing new will be said be he's expected to rebut it again, with exactly the same result.
There will always be another looking to make a name for himself by challenging Bill Nye; they have nothing to lose by debating him, and they will do this until he refuses.

These things must age him so much. They must be so fucking draining.
