Bill Nye, popularly known as the “Science Guy,” joined Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle to discuss the actual threat of climate change and the science behind the warming of our planet.

As an TV scientist and mechanical engineer, Nye is known for breaking science down into understandable terms. In speaking with Velshi & Ruhle, Nye spoke about how climate change is more gradual than disasters such as Pearl Harbor or 9/11, but the effects are still as serious, if not more.

Nye pulled out a hockey stick graph that he said climate change deniers like to wave around to help show how climate change has been debunked, but he illustrated that it wasn’t. Nye used a simplified calculus formula to show the rate of change in temperature over time.

“The rate of temperature getting bigger is very high… There is enough carbon dioxide and methane in the atmosphere already to make the world get warmer for many decades to come,” Nye said. “What we want is to slow that rate.”

1. It's not 10 or 15 years away; it's RIGHT NOW.

2. And it will continue to get worse. World wide we are not doing anything now of and real good.

As I have said before, I have a very low opinion of humanity as a whole. Nothing of major consequence will be done to even slow down climate change. Will we become extinct, of course not, when enough people have died the rest will have lousy lives but humans will continue to exist. Eventually, the Earth will restore itself and humans will mess it up again.
