Bill Nye Rips CNN For Including Climate Change Skeptic In Earth Day Panel

By Aimee Lutkin

In honor of Earth Day, CNN decided to have a lively open discussion about climate change, a real and verifiable thing happening to our beautiful planet. Unfortunately, these kinds of conversations are often centered around a climate change "skeptic." In this instance, CNN included Trump advisor Willian Happer who has gone so far as to deny that carbon dioxide is even a pollutant. Ha ha!! We're all dead! 

But, at least for this one segment, we have the joy of watching CNN's other guest, Bill Nye the Science Guy, obliterate Happer and CNN's choice to include him:

Nye reminded everyone that the Science March is as much about the economy as the planet, since countries that invest in new forms of energy will be  doing a lot better financially than those of us riding a coal nugget to nowhere. 

Happer gets a few moments to mumble, looking barely awake, saying that models have predicted levels of heat that haven't unfolded, to which Nye explains this model was cherry picked by Happer, and the confusion over it is because that heat ended up in the ocean—which is also devastating to the natural world.

"Sir with some respect I encourage you to cut this out," says Nye, recommending Happer read some science written since the Bronze age. “I will say," Nye continued, "As much as I love the CNN, you’re doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic, and not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change."
