Bill Nye frolicked in a ball pit to explain how the planet’s populations compete for resources. He took a chain saw to a loaf of bread, comparing it to Earth’s crust, and he was nearly blown away in a wind tunnel while shouting “science!”

But he’s talking about global warming now — and he’s in no mood to mess around.

“By the end of this century, if emissions keep rising, the average temperature on Earth could go up another four to eight degrees,” Nye said, appearing on a segment of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” on Sunday.

The famously zany scientist and host of the PBS series “Bill Nye the Science Guy” then aimed a blowtorch at a globe to illustrate his argument: “What I’m saying is, the planet’s on f–ing fire,” Nye said.

Not sure what passes for the definition of a scientist for everyone here, but Nye has a BS and has worked as a Mechanical Engineer....

Unfortunately no one will give a cr@p what he says until it is too late. Our kids and grandkids will pay the price and its sad that people choose not to see past their own existence.

Sadly very true. The amount of morons out there unwilling to accept the facts about the future and how humans effect the planet are seemingly growing. If only natural disasters could be selective in their choice of victims.....

He's an excellent ambassador for science to the uninformed. He's an extremely intelligent and level headed person who has never wavered from his message. He's never claimed to be a scientist, but accurately conveys and communicates science to the average person in ways that the scientific community are unable to due to their inability to communicate in layman's terms.

 

In some ways, Bill's work is more important than the average scientist in that he is helping to embolden support and spread the message to millions of children that science is intrinsically important.  

My question is: What qualifies one as a "scientist"? Are we to believe that a Bachelor of Science from Cornell isn't enough? Working for Boeing as a Mechanical Engineer isn't enough?

 

Who decides?
