Our Friend Bill Nye appeared on CNN’s Crossfire yesterday after a White House report about climate change was released. He was brought on to debate Heritage Foundation representative Nicolas Loris, but instead spent much of the time explaining how science works to the show’s host S.E. Cupp.
Cupp tried to present other issues she seemingly feels are more important and then challenged Nye to, “look me in the eye and tell me in good conscience that climate change is our most urgent, number one priority right now.”
So of course, Nye looked her in the eye and told her, “Climate change is our most urgent, number one priority right now.”
As ever, this is probably being viewed by people who accept facts and understand basic science as a win for Nye, and by those choosing to ignore climate change as a win for their side.
- Nye explained to Seth Meyers why he debates people who deny science
- He also answered a few of our reader questions
