On the Dial | Climate Change Talks



Bill Nye & Bernie Sanders | Radio Waves

Last Monday, Uncle Bernie and The Science Guy sat down via Facebook Live to discuss climate change—both gents being advocates for environmental protection. Other than this being the cutest thing to ever exist, it is extremely vital to the future of our planet. Both have been very vocal about the pressing matter. Nye didn't hesitate calling out skeptics, saying “instead of accepting that the climate is changing, deniers are denying the evidence and dismissing the authorities” simply because they don’t want to face a harsh reality.

Nye linked fossil fuel corporations to the tobacco industry saying that lying about health effects from smoking is no different than lying about negative environmental effects. "As a taxpayer and voter, the introduction of this extreme doubt about climate change is affecting my quality of life as a public citizens," concluded Bill.

In our current political climate, it's probably best to go rogue in our efforts. Watch the entire convo below:
