Damn, that just got better and better. Here's to more of this.
1:09 thank you
Scientists have been in agreement over climate change for 70 years. Americans have been in agreement that we don't give a fuck about mass death and natural disasters since immediately after.
We deserve this so fucking hard.

Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. How come Nye gets stuck with "The Science Guy" though? Is that his choice? While I liked the other show with the man in a rat suit more as a kid, all it seems to do is remind us of him as a kids' show host, therefore not to be taken so seriously. Nobody calls Mark Wahlberg "Marky Mark" anymore.
He works to educate kids a lot, so it's not something detrimental.
And as you can see, adults are fucking idiots anyway.
SolRo at the three point.. 3 2 1 swish!
Kinda begs the question though: I was having this conversation about Cosmos (I've only seen the first episode so maybe I'm wrong) but my friend (who is nearing 40) was complaining that the show was designed for kids, with the cartoons and stuff, and that he already knew all this. Not much I can say except yeah. You're an adult.
The difference is Cosmos being criticized as turning our kids into aethiests because Mr. Tyson Mc Knowitall outsmarted their religious parents, where "the science guy" is still something many parents associate with "science rules!!," almost like a science minstrel show that us kids would watch and be like "oh that's cool" instead of being something that we should generally take seriously. As an adult with the attitude of a child, I love Bill Nye for being Bill Nye The Science Guy, but I don't know if holding onto that persona is the best way to convince "adults" who would rather listen to anyone with a regular tie than a bowtie, no matter the facts, that our children have no future if we keep this shit up.
Or fuck it. Change the voting age to 8 instead of 18.
Bill Nye the Shattered Husk of a Man wasn't as popular with focus groups.
The problem is, as this show perfectly demonstrates, is that the discussion is no longer something for adults to have. Hence Bill Nye. He's a child educator, for a childish debate.
But yeah, I'd rather that old reprobate Carl Sagan. He could
rock a suit jacket with leather elbow pads, and a turtleneck. Plus you know he's loaded on that great Finger Lakes hothouse bud. All writing equations on the shower wall in soap foam. Billions and billions and billions of tiny little bubbles....
it's not a discussion.
it's a farce of facts vs whatever bullshit the oil lobbyists think will best confuse/convince the watching morons, thus making it look like there is a debate.
it's education vs marketing and focus groups
you could have Einstein, Sagan, or any sort of dream team of scientists, past or present, and it wouldn't be any different.
It's weird. The worst job I ever had was working at a USPIRG as an outbound caller. I had to tell people about these things I never heard about from OSpirg (I know a thing or two about Oregon, at least my favorite places to go) WISpirg (cool lived there too) PENNpirg.. "uhh my favorite national park in Pennsylvania.. you know the one with the uhh lakes?" reading off teleprompters about environmental issues that ARE important to me in places I've never visited and calling people at dinnertime. Best I could get is "yes I still believe in changing the environment just renew my annual membership now stop talking to me."
For me, it was saving the world from itself, even if I was just making phonecalls. For the supervisors it was a paycheck, so they could finance their fucking car. Company meetings were wasted on these stupid skype meetings usually from Colorado that didn't work.. half the time they didn't know which PIRG they were talking to and get them confused. Whoops! Sorry guys in Oregon! I thought I was talking to a different part of the country. Now make us money.
A dream team of scientists could prove their point by proving their point. Not by being living jokes in labcoats and bowties and arggggggggggg
Sorry. I've kind of had a vendetta since the Laura Gibson thing. He calls Oregon a bunch of idiots based off of some Oracle fuckup (based out of California,) a small percentage of which funded the ad campaign she was featured in, which was paid to her and the rest of the actors in the equivalent of pennies.
Ehh, Bill Nye is more excitable eccentric than a joke...the guy with the standing hairdoo and a fat guy in a rat suit assistant was a joke.
There are no hats, only SLAVE COLLARS for your BRAIN. Ever heard of "mad hatter disease"? Google it, I'll wait. Hats are an Illuminati conspiracy to cause widespread mental illness and make us dependent on so-called "pharmaceutical drugs", which are really mind control pills developed during the cold war. FACT. Wake up, sheeple. HATLESS AMERICANS FOR TRUTH
Does that go for Australia too? I'm pretty sure when you're a country that wears their hats on their feet, the hats' psychic powers can't reach the brain.
Australia also doesn't exist. The Australian National Flag is literally a false flag.
Little known fact: Australia's founding father was FedSmoker.
