Bill Nye Destroys climate change-denying Trump adviser William Happer

Appearing on CNN’s New Day, prior to Saturday’s Science March in Washington, D.C., “Science Guy” Bill Nye delivered a stern lecture to a climate-denying science adviser to President Donald Trump while also scolding CNN for having the man on.

Host Victor Blackwell began by introducing physicist William Happer, who has advised Trump on the environment, and who attempted to explain to the CNN audience that climate change is a “myth” and that the world is actually getting “greener.”

“There’s this myth that’s developed around carbon dioxide that it’s a pollutant, but you and I both exhale carbon dioxide with every breath. Each of us emits about two pounds of carbon dioxide a day, so are we polluting the planet?” Happer explained. “Carbon dioxide is a perfectly natural gas, it’s just like water vapor, it’s something that plants love. They grow better with more carbon dioxide, and you can see the greening of the earth already from the additional carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.”

Asked to respond, Nye seemed exasperated from the start.

“What he claims to not understand is the rate. it’s the speed at which we’re adding carbon dioxide,” Nye began. “And I will say, 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.”

Actually my last comment, whilst true, is not what I really want. I want every climate change denier to live. I want them to, when the end is upon us, to fight and kick and scream and suffer. Whilst those of us who accept the truth choose to go quietly into that good night.
I would bet every cent I have that this man believes in God. Killing this man Happer would not rest heavy on my conscious at all.
Happer you f-ing idiot of course the computer modeling was flawed don't you know what technology is its not always right
what an idieot!!

I have problems understanding why people do not believe in climate change and global warming... I've heard so many facts on how whats going on with our earth involves the OBVIOUS IMBALANCES in vibration flow, energy, and connectivity directly relating to climate change and global warming. These sad consequences are related directly to our choices as humans to neglect the fragility of our LIVING planet and even after beginning to see consequences, continuing to blindly destroy our ONLY LIFELINE. I just want us as a human population to wake and work as one to make things better. PEACE TO ALL
*Watches the video* Damn i am so happy i live in the UK...

Los numero son los números.... Lamentablemente si no hacemos algo para parar los gases de efecto invernadero como el CO2, irán aumentando las temperaturas, el PH de nuestros océanos en el que viven millones de criaturas que dependen de un PH relativo el cual está cambiando por los ácidos que acompañan a las lluvias por los gases creados por nosotros y esto cada vez ira a más porque al derretirse los polos se liberan otros gases como el metanol que también son muy peligrosos.... si no hacemos algo ya no abra quien lo pare y es verdad que al final es algo natural de la tierra pero nosotros lo hemos acelerado más de un 70% 🌫

Let me introduce everyone to Rosalin, she is gonna teach Bill Nye a thing or two about "Climate Change"..........Listen, and then do your own research, and you will find Man-Made Climate Change is real, and the "Men" doing the changing are not everyday citizens, not our cars, not our campfires, not our electric companies......

Can we all agree we want an earth that allows us as humans to continue living, thriving and evolving. I'm only saying that in order for us to be able to do those things we have to protect and preserve the one thing that provides for us at the current point in time. Ex. If u had only one source of water in an area. You won't be knowingly dump dangerous materials in said water source. We need science to help figure out what is acceptable to put back into nature.
Idk what do I know im high af

What a dumbass. Climate change deniers are stupid. This is coming from a conservative. I think climate change is natural and not completely man made. IT EXISTS. It's not COMPLETELY man made though.

The good thing about these old people like William Happer is that they're all gonna die soon

Bill NYE hasn't got the credentials to talk about this, or any science except mechanical engineering.

And he is a TOTAL TWAT.

Nye is a scam
cli-sci ranked about 24th in a list of american's concerns a few years ago-- but obama, kerry and his minions were mentioning it at every stop. so you know they are full of shit. if it comes from the left, you have to check to see if it's a lie first. also, it's a wealth redistribution scam, like the stock market.
no po
Bill Nye the science shill.. And BTW he only has a bachelors in Mechanical Engineering. Not exactly the cream of the crop.
Billy Bob
god damn tree huggers... btw, Ill make sure not to buy any ocean side properties in the future...
Say whatever you want about the reality of Global Warming but Bill has a point here. Humanity needs to device where does it want to stop of move ahead (and about the Oil, oh man... nobody talks about this dimension of the problem...)

Georgia Guide Stones. Maintain Humanity under 500,000,000. That means 6.5 Billion People need to be Murdered.
This is Agenda 21, 20/30 Global Warming Solution.
Bill Nye is Pushing Eugenics. He is not your Friend. He is a Puppet of the New World Order.
Wake up from the Brainwashing.

10 Climate Change Lies that Bill Nye pushes:
After that shit about genders Bill Nye has no fucking credit to talk about science
Jason McAllister
just curious, can someone tell me what Bill Nye's qualifications are as a climate scientist?
Bill is an actor not scientist. Every few years bill applies to nasa astronaut program but they never take him, you know why? Nasa needs real scientists.
You don't need to be a scientist, bugs moving northward, melting glaciers, record temperatures. You don't need to know a lot about science. You just to need to be able to observe whats going on and the changes compared to the past. Its really to see if you have an open mind.

Bill Nye is an idiot

Remember the global cooling scam that didn't work? How about the global warming scam that didn't work? Now climate change? No F-ing sh!t billy boy, climate changes by the minute! That's how Mother Nature works, Mother F-er! The activities of the population DO NOT EFFECT the climate. nasa (a jewish word) and other dark government agencies do everything they can to effect the climate in order to attack the population in an effort to enact draconian legislation and penal codes to strip away all liberties and control every aspect of your lives. BS billy boy nye is a failed engineer, not a scientist, but an actor, spewing fraudulent lies from a cue card for a paycheck!!! I mean when he's not using his mouth as a cock holster for neil de fraud tyson!!! The only thing billy boy nye destroyed was his reputation, LMFAO!!!
this is why TRUMP denies the climate !
wow what a fucking moron! die already haper
Krzysztof Kozłowski
Bill Nye the failure guy, sold his integrity when he decided to allow his name to be used in program talking about genders matter-of-factly.
No matter how much one promotes education if in the same breath one spreads lies and pushes propaganda.
You've cashed your ticket, Bill. Now get off the stage because you're hurting the cause you say you champion. Also try some of that education you say you promote.

Climate change deniers are akin to Holocaust deniers are to history. They are fiction as opposed to facts. They accept every single rule that controls the world and the universe except these findings. They accuse scientists as having an agenda rather than the fossil fuels companies. They are like the fox and the grapes. They are like Christianity and Judaism and Islam with no evidence or facts to back them up.

They are like pigeons trying to play chess.

My heart sinks reading this comment section. Why deny proven fact?

'Trump's uncle was a physicist, therefor science hasn't anything to fear from mister Trump'? His mother gave birth to him, that must make him an expert on pregnancies...

I fear for the people of USA. USA is getting more and more isolated from the world with their old policies from 30 years ago.
I fear when 300 millions Americans go from Obama to Trump (no matter how bad or good Obama was). How it is possible that you, do not change your politicians education. Please start voting on more smarter and educated politicians for your public offices. America will say thanks, and the rest of the world also.

How is it possible and scientists all over the world, not only in the US, claim the same things with facts, studies, proofs, and your own politicians keep doing the same old thing that is getting more and more money.

I know capitalism runs deep in US society, and everything must be paid, but come on, look at social, education and political policies on other Countries, look and some of the more develop countries in Europe for example.

My country is small, I live in Portugal, and even here we have problems. We have strong laws against pollution, waste disposal, and factories pollution. No CEO of big companies here that have factories want to get a huge fine for pollution even less from the European Counsel.

All start at education. Education is mandatory for every single child in Portugal! If you are a parent and you cannot afford buying books and school materials for your son, the social services will help. We pay taxes for all of that, for education, for health (not even going to comment on health stuff and comparing it). You pay taxes because you must, but you do not get any social (or at least very little) benefits from it.

"we exhale CO2 ???" ffs wake up America, where you go get these guys???

Why are the deniers always some guy and not a scientist?

China is spending more on renewable energy than the US and EU combined. The leadership of the World once enjoyed by the US is being frittered away by American anti-science idiots.

We can all see that weather systems and by default, climate is changing across the globe. I'm a farmer and it's obvious something is going on. It's happening within the space of a lifetime and even the flora and fauna are changing in response to the warming. For many religious folks, this is the prelude to the 'end of days' scenario which they expect before the Rapture etc.
They are prepared to believe such superstitious explanations, which have no evidential basis but they deny the scientific facts which are based on a wealth of evidence and supported by 99% of the scientific community. Even the leaders of the major religions accept the scientific consensus, it's just these fundamentalists who don't. To those folks, I say if you won't believe the observed facts. Surely you can realise that changing to cleaner forms of energy like wind, hydro and solar, will reduce pollution immensley and make our planet a healthier environment for all.
If we don't get a handle on this problem then future wars will be fought over things as simple as fresh water, not oil reserves as they are today. The majority can no longer allow the superstitious beliefs and ignorance of religious extremists to condemn the rest of us to the worse case scenario. For them death is a door to some form of zombie paradise, but to rational folks death is just the end. Prove otherwise someone.
The moment you say "We need to stop making babies because the planet can't handle us" is the moment you destroy Abrahamic religions. This is why they deny overpopulation and hate birth control.

Agree to disagree XD when you're in that situation its just best to walk away
One of the biggest Greenhouse gases that people seem to have forgotten is water vapor. When are we going to have a water vapor reduction. Bill Nye was right about one thing, politics hijacked the Science. Why, because they turned it into a making money scheme, through carbon credits or carbon tax. No doubt they have all bought shares somewhere and are waiting for them to skyrocket like some pyramid scheme. I believe Al Gore has quite a few. I have no problem with getting more Solar/wind turbines whatever the politics that will be a good result. Less smog, pollutants/heavy metals/ie carbon monoxide etc in the air is what I think is the best result. Focus on achieving that.

Even if we somehow discovered that climate change is a hoax, we would still have to get off of fossil fuels. They are in limited supply and we are so economically dependent on them.
