Bill Nye warns & # 39; the planet & # 39; s on f *** ing fire & # 39; when calling on viewers to tackle climate change & # 39; crisis & # 39; Tirade on HBO & # 39; s Last Week Tonight
- TV personality, Bill Nye, had some harsh words about tempering climate change
- On & # 39; Last Week Tonight & # 39; Nye called the & # 39; planet on f *** ing fire & # 39;
- Nye's comments are designed to laugh, but the climate models have deteriorated
- CO2 in the world's atmosphere is at the highest level ever in human history
In a blasphemous tirade by one of the most famous liaisons of TV of science and learning, viewers were given a clear warning about the disastrous consequences of climate change.
Bill Nye – best known for his popular 90s educational TV show, & # 39; Bill Nye: The Science Guy & # 39; – reproduced his iconic character in a cameo about the latest episode of HBO & Lasts Tonight with John Oliver & # 39 ;, to mark the world's failure to tackle climate change.
Instead of Nye's characteristic passion for science and learning, commentator and TV personality delivered a different, more mature, kind of passionate speech.
After instructing viewers to put on & # 39; your safety glasses & # 39 ;, Nye launched his plea.

In a blasphemy-laden tirade of one of the most famous liaisons of science and learning TV, viewers were given a clear warning about the disastrous effects of climate change
& # 39; By the end of this century, if emissions continue to rise, the average temperature on Earth could rise another four to eight degrees. What I want to say is that the planet is on fire, "Nye said, burning a wooden ball on a disk in front of him.
& # 39; There are many things we could do to release it – are they free? No of course not. Nothing is free, idiots.
& # 39; Let the f ** k grow. You are no longer children. I didn't mind explaining photosynthesis to you when you were 12. But now you are an adult and this is a real crisis, you know? Safety glasses off, mothers. & # 39;
Nye continues to blow on the globe that still sizzles when he storms off camera.
In a separate segment, where Oliver called in Nye to help explain carbon pricing – a proposal to tax emitters of greenhouse gases more for their pollution – to give one of his characteristic demonstrations.
& # 39; If we release carbon, for example, by burning coal or driving an SUV, we all pay for it in the form of fires, floods and crop failures, & # 39; said Nye.
& # 39; Charging a carbon allowance creates incentives to reduce carbon emissions and, more importantly, it also encourages the development of low-carbon technology, which is huge because it is vital to reduce emissions worldwide & # 39;
But Nye wasn't ready yet.
& # 39; And because for some reason you are John, a 42-year-old man who needs his attention with tricks, here are a few fucking Mentos and a bottle of diet coke. Now happy? & # 39;
Nye & # 39; s & # 39; demonstrations & # 39; on John Oliver & # 39; s & # 39; Last Week Tonight & # 39; lacked the characteristic lightness that made TV personality popular among children in the 1990s
While Nye & # 39; s cameo was being laughed at at the show, a growing body of evidence has shown that people's efforts to mitigate climate change have become miserably short, and as a result, climate models have become increasingly daring.
This month, CO2 in the Earth's atmosphere reached the highest levels in the history of the human race, rising to 415 particles per million.
Even if countries met the benchmarks laid down in the Paris Agreement, signed by more than 170 world governments in 2016, the UN says that the world & # 39; locked up & # 39; is for temperature increases of 3 to 5 degrees Celsius.
In the latest episode of Oliver, the host highlights different models to slow down the locks of greenhouse gases in the Earth's atmosphere, such as carbon logging and trading and a carbon tax.
The host also took the opportunity to discuss the proposal and the subsequent impact of the & # 39; Green New Deal & # 39; from the American freshman representative, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
HOW MANY WILL IT BE LEVEL LEVELS IN THE FOLLOWING SOME CENTURIES?
Worldwide sea levels can go up to 1.2 meters (4 feet) by 2300, even if we meet the 2015 Paris climate targets, scientists warn.
The long-term change will be driven by a thaw ice from Greenland to Antarctica set to redraw global coastlines.
Sea level rise threatens cities from Shanghai to London, to low-lying parts of Florida or Bangladesh, and to entire nations such as the Maldives.
It is vital that we limit emissions as quickly as possible to prevent an even greater increase, a German team of researchers said in a new report.
By 2300, the report predicted that sea levels would rise by 0.7-1.2 meters, even if nearly 200 countries fully meet the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement.
The objectives set in the agreements include the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to the net zero level in the second half of this century.
The sea level will rise inexorably because the heat-released industrial gases that have already been emitted will linger in the atmosphere and melt more ice, he said.
Moreover, the water naturally expands when it becomes above four degrees Celsius (39.2 ° F).
The report also found that any five-year delay after 2020 in peak global emissions would mean an additional 20 centimeters (8-inch) sea level rise by 2300.
& # 39; Sea level is often communicated as a very slow process that you can't do much about … but the next 30 years really matters & # 39 ;, says lead author Dr. Matthias Mengel from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Potsdam, Germany, told Reuters.
None of the nearly 200 governments signing the Paris agreements is on track to deliver on its promises.
