  • If we could only put a carbon tax on John Oliver’s and Bill Nye’s mouth. The pollution coming out of them is destroying this planet and Using up all the oxygen. The real funny part is Bill Nye is not even a scientist. He’s just a nut job!

  • Perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón y perdón Pero sí te gustan EL chime t LO qué públicas PUES no uses nombres ajenos USA TÚ NOMBRE TUYO Y LO TESTIFICÓ CON EL PODER DE JEHOVÁ AMEN

  • 💪🏼

  • Hoes mad

  • www.gofundme.com/alternative-fuels

  • i cant even finish watching this. fuck humanity, we all gonna die because of some retards

  • haha

  • "Safety Glasses off MotherFUckers!" Yeah we need wake up and start taking responsibility for our actions or we won't have any actions left to take.

  • OMG Bill Nye the Science Guy cursed. Was not expecting that

  • cs-tv.org/tv/video-7W33HRc1A6c.html

  • Animals dont pay carbon tax. More taxes for slaves

  • I prefer the dog earth theory

  • This is for sheep.

  • We don't make wishlist into laws is my big problem

  • Bullshit. This brit actually admitted one of the goal of the bill is to end air travel. The bill is bullshit. To start conversation... is not what public policy is for. Just because you reject the bill doesn't mean you aren't concern about the environment. Make better bills. Stop calling everyone stupid.

    • The time for talk is over. The earth is dying. It is our fault and if we want a world for our children we need to act now.

  • Keep in mind this: China has decreased it's carbon footprint but China + Chinese companies have actually increased their carbon footprint.

  • The green new deal already started ... in Colorado.

  • Bill Nye saying "fuck" gives me life. Have a time stamp- 11:26

  • Our society is going downhill and John Oliver is partly responsible for pushing narratives down our throats, dividing us as a country. Think for yourselves, ppl

    • But if I listen to you how our we thinking for ourselves.

  • the green new deal, the version he is talking about, is very different from the one that was turned down by politicians. the original green new deal had set goals, included comments about farting cows and how they were a real problem and it needs to be taken care of, and it aims to eliminate the use of all fossil fuels in the next 10 years. that would mean the elimination of plains, trains and automobiles.

  • Nuclear power is not zero emission. If you count spent fuel, it is the worst emission of any power generating method. It will be the bain of a thousand generations for our short term gain. John Oliver, you are a dimwit, but funny.

    • That is not accurate at all. First of all lets examine what emissions are: Emissions - the production or discharge of a product such as a gas or radiation. Now to begin within this entire video is concentrating specifically on CO2 emissions, which according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's Lifecycle Harmonization Assessment of CO2, nuclear plants produce a harmonized lifecycle average of 14g CO2/KWh making it one of the lowest emitters of any energy source - only wind, geothermal, tidal, hydropower and CSP are lower. But for some reason on a video about CO2 emissions you are arguing about radiation emission. Well this still doesn't really support your narrative because NRC and EPA regulations on both radiation dosages by hourly and annual and lifecycle radiation emissions are still held drastically below that not only of emissions from fossil fuels, but even background radiation. I could prove this to you mathematically if you wanted, but something tells me you aren't really concerned about the actual data or the mathematical validity of your statements. Yes there are risks of radiation from nuclear plants, just as there are risks from all energy sources. In reality there is no such thing as zero emission, or clean energy or green energy, or zero carbon energy. This being said, there is still a difference between the CO2 emissions of CSP and natural gas, just as there is a difference in radiation emissions between nuclear and coal. Its also important to note that pollution is not constrained to just emissions. While some sources may not produce CO2 they can release other toxic gases, and while some sources may not produce radioactive waste, they do produce extremely toxic chemical waste. Now to be honest your claims really fall onto themselves, because youre complaining about radiation emissions, but then say that it will be the bain of a thousand generations. Scientifically this statement is a contradiction, because isotopes that produce the largest radiation emissions as those with very high radioactivity and thus very short decay lives. Yet youre concerned about isotopes with very long decay lives and thus exhibit low radioactivity and low radiation emission. This displays a misunderstanding of what radioactivity is on your part.

  • It's time to get rid of the CARBON DIOXIDE. We have way too many damn trees. And don't get me start on the plants that we eat. How much more of that nuisance do we need to put up with ? Kill em all.

  • Just think that these morrons are running the country

  • Bill Nye is an Actor.. John Oliver is an Actor... Why do you libs seek information from Actors? Actors, Video Editors and Writers?

  • A Carbon Tax will be the official fall of freedom. Humans are Carbon Based. The Government owns rights to Carbon, they own Humans. Case Closed

  • "Boo'd at trump rally, means it good." ... Damn this shit is so biased. Just give Leftist Americans a british accent, one liners filled with out of context stats and theories. And boom they have a consensus so its a fact. Group think is scary. So when president trump says dems want to raise taxes and the crowd "boos," that means taxation is a good thing? Keep America, America." America should stop bending the knee to these socialist elites exploiting them. Lets not forget which country amongst the hundreds that used slavery for its economic purpose at the time, went to war to stop that shit.

  • lost me and bill nye

  • *The Triggered Intellectual Show*

  • Dear power-abusing sociopath republiCONS & fundamentalists, Your time is done & gone....Bye-bye.

  • sorry but the problem isn't stuff it's overpopulation we are right now about three billion over sustainability

    • We are right now. however, we can create a circular economy. This way, we could sustain around 10 bn people. And as people in developed countries have fewer babies, the world population will shrink in the future.

  • Tell us how the carbon tax went in France?

  • I actually saw the Bill clip in school first because my classmates ever freaking about it. I should have know John was behind this:)

  • global warming is a hoax. you truly are a liberal assclown!! i can compromise on cow methane and coal, but i wont compromise on the oil industry. im willing to wage war and spill liberal blood to protect the oil industry. besides not everyone can buy or afford a tesla. not mentioning the electricity needed to run a tesla comes from coal plants.

  • Carbon pollution 😆😆😆😆 Duuuuumb !! There’s more so called carbon “pollution” emitted in one eruption of a super volcano than humans could ever match at current rate in 25 million years. And that’s happened around more than a dozen times already. And what does the earth do ? It filters it out, it’s is it’s own filtration system you can’t hurt. Fake science 🧪 real agendas

  • Safety Glasses Off Motherfuckers :)

  • We need a damn culling of the 'swamp'!!.. www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-01448-4

  • Fun fact: what makes the coke go up is carbon dioxide being released. Should he pay a fine for that?

  • Please Join: 'BOYCOT TRUMP-TWEETS'.. Take away the ability of a narcissist to spew their propaghanda b.s.rhethoric..and you take away his power!!.. Please..'Boycott trump-tweets'..John ARE..YOU LISTENING??.. Pass it on?..

  • cs-tv.org/tv/video-fQ1HWI_RCEk.html

  • Bill Nye's part in this was fucking great omg

  • Noooot gonna happen. People are stupid. Extinction is our only course of action.

  • Yes, it's only "14 pages long," but HOW MUCH MONEY will those 14 pages cost taxpayers if brought to fruition? Well according to CNN's Jake Tapper, the estimated cost is anywhere between *40 to 97 TRILLION DOLLARS!!!* That in itself shows just how farfetched and quixotic the project actually is, but I digress... And yes, AOC's "Green New Deal" was in fact voted down by the Senate SIX weeks ago...with NOT ONE SINGLE Democrat in the entire Senate voting in favor of the deal!! How embarrassing! THIS is REAL reason why talking heads on the left (like this genius here) want Trump to just shut up about the so-called "Green New Deal" and stop bringing it up already-it's not only extremely unpopular by Republicans in the Senate, but it's equally as unpopular for their Democrat counterparts. While I don't agree with much of anything AOC has to say, I certainly agree with her assertion that the "Green New Deal" was the "biggest mistake she's made in Congress" so far. Nevertheless, I do think she genuinely means well, even if her policy-making skills are a bit naive or jejune (to say the least). So for now it's safe to say AOC's "Green New Deal" will remain nothing but an idealistic pipedream and an extremely expensive one at that!

  • Cows belch, not fart.

  • I used to enjoy this videos....

  • We are so boned

  • Fuck hamburgers, carbon pricing is stupid malicious policy. Its going to screw over regular people, taxing them more, while giving them absolutely no choice over the matter whatsoever. Oh, so working class people now need to pay more for transport? Im sure that will magically make them be able to afford electric cars. And if they cant, im sure they will INVENT SOME IN THEIR GARAGE because thats such an incentive you given them, making them pay more for going to their shitty job, that barely lets them survive, working double shifts, raising children, and now some government piece of garbage decided that they need to feel good about themselves and get richer so there u go, new green deal. Big companies? No big deal they will just fire some people and pay the fines. Government? Not going to fine itself, and will waste or lose that money they got from companies. Regular people and small buisnesses however will be trapped in a system that they have no way out of, simply being milked for all they are worth by another well meaning idiot' legislation. If you TRULY care about the environment so much, how about you dont tax people more, but start with cutting down your pointlessly large government and using that new found funds to actually improving things? If you want people to use alternative energy powered transport, that's fine by me. Help them pay for it. Go and pay giant corporations to figure out greener solutions, dont pretend tot ake tough stance on them, while fully aware it wont do shit, other than fill your pockets that you will allow you to fun some unrelated bullshit like free condoms or whatever idiotic college student idea you might have in that tiny cortez brain of yours. And since i know for a fact that Bill Nye is not above taking money to fake science to prove ideologist point, because i already seen him do it once, on tv, during entire episode dedicated to SJW agenda, while profitting from it, it's in his netflix show you can but shouldnt watch to see for yourselves, i will never again trust a single word he says. Does not make him wrong, but certainly does not give anything any authority whatsoever.

  • A suggestion for climate change deniers: seal up your garage and sit in your car while it’s running with a hose feeding into the window from your exhaust to show us how safe our emissions are 👍 Don’t actually do this because you’ll die, you idiots.

  • Hamburgler looks a bit like our fearless leader

  • Why are people so against taxes? Do they not understand that taxes help everyone? I’d pay $1 more for something to help avoid the end of life as we know it.

  • OH MY GOD Trudeau is *SO GAY!* D:

  • I’ve now seen Bill curse several times this week and I would really love it if this was his permanent new dirty-mouthed persona calling us all idiots for not doing anything 😂❤️

  • I love you John!

  • If the Left is really that serious about cutting green house gases then why haven't they promoted awards for green tech that works and is practical? Instead they want to subsidize old green tech that does nothing but make a few people rich and rips off the tax payers while creating eye sores with wind farms and solar panels.

  • Lol except all those presidential candidates that cosponsored the GND didn't even vote for it in the senate

  • This whole clip was a poison pill.

  • Was this deliberate sabotage? The Green New Deal is a reaction to ignoring global warming for 30 years in fear of the costs. It is about deficit spending on improved energy efficiency, renewable energy, and other input efficiencies so necessary changes are politically possible.

  • 18:34

  • This is literally a tax in disguise. Why the fuck should be pay extra for carbon emissions, when it’s not even our fault we have to drive cars. Why don’t they just not make us pay for their mistakes, I’m tired of people giving more of their money away to the government for something we didn’t even create. Fuck taxes man.

  • Change the name Green New Deal to The Only Deal Left. That should caught fire, no pun intended.

  • Im honored to have grown up alongside Bill Nye, it seems-- the parallel makes it feel personal, like he's a relative of my generation's people or something 😆 its great

  • The sky is falling! Forty + years of this climate crap. First doomsday predictions in congress in 1988. Zip has happened. Time to find a new eco-disaster to cry about, guys. This one is long, long dead.

  • Oh my god... I've been saying that Pie was the superior desert for years, and no one listened. You understand me John.

  • This is so funny and yet sad. The jokes he makes have a unique punchline to them, however, what makes it sad is that he tries to show as though AOC's ideas were either just jokes that Republicans took too seriously and that AOC is actually smart (now that's funny, because he's serious, lol). AOC has been caught not once, not twice, but countless times showing that she doesn't know anything (three branches of government, reason's to impeach Trump, and many more, look it up, they're hilarious). So I wouldn't come to a comedian/late night talk show host to get my political and economic information, especially if they think AOC is smart.

  • Fucking thank you Bill Nye.

  • The main problem with getting ANY of this in the U.S. is that our leaders are fucking fossils of the human race and their mind is so far behind that's it's stuck up their great grand parents ass. A lot of them STILL truly believe that female hysteria is a fucking thing!!! It would be great if we could start converting our cities into walking cities like Japan. But that would require a level of creativity and intelligence that we don't get much of; from people with the wealth and power to actually make any change at all. For one thing why don't we have a high speed rail? why is a train ticket more expensive than a plane? I'm not going to even go into the housing market and the ungodly price gouging going on there! But I, for one can't afford to just pack up and move within walking distance to work. I have a 2 hr commute daily. Because that's how far away I had to go just to afford a place to live. It would be wonderful if the electric car became more viable and affordable. But largely for that you'd need charging stations in rural and low population areas, also the electric companies would have to loosen the rope from around our necks and lower the overall household energy cost. Not to mention the gas companies! They'd have to lower the prices too! And they would have to do all of this all the while researching and developing new sustainable technology and energy production. Because America won't do a damn thing until the technology is out, and working, for a minimum of 10 years before the public even knows about it let alone has it! I know this because, I am an American. Please send help; there are those of us who still have a functioning brain but the majority of us are powerless and lack the wealth to actually do anything about it, other than rage over the internet.

  • Journalism major

  • Great video! I think I'll refresh the page to see the 5 million view mark, people care about the message, there's hope.

  • The fact that we have reduced a discussion about converting to clean energy to hamburger prohibition is a very sad point in American history.

  • Want to save the earth? Have less than 2 kids, preferably none.

  • Sounds good. Lets do it. Get out of CS-tv, find a second job, no weekends, no holidays, 12h workdays. The necessary infrastructure and economy ain't gonna build itself.

  • Alien: What is your home planet? Englishman: "Urf" Alien: Bless you, so what's your planet called? Englishman: "Urf" Alien: That's a nasty stomache you have there. Again, what's the name of your planet? Englishman: "Urf"

  • Living costs go higher -> Wages go higher. If wages don't go higher, people can't afford things and then the economy goes to shit again. If you truly want to fix the issue then remove the cause. Just get rid of people and it's fixed. And no one is gonna worry about it anymore because we are all dead.

  • Pie forever! Finally something that isn't up for debate!

  • You people need to start reading about the Grand Solar Minimum that is just starting and understand what really causes major climate change. Here's a hint..... Its the sun. Bill Nye is no science guy either, he's a mechanical engineer and a comedian.

  • Man made global warming is the biggest hoax ever.

  • John Oliver comedy skit algorithm: 1) Talking point on sobering fact. 2) Show politician stating opposing opinion of fact. 3) Associate the two statements with obscure pop culture reference. 4) Point at camera and yell "Fuck you [pop culture reference] Fuck you and [another obscure pop culture reference]!" 5) Goto 1

  • This "bill" will be paid one way or the other. We can continue to shuffle the inevitable result into the future until it's disastrously ended by nature's reaction to the assault OR we can make some nearly painless adjustments NOW. Inconvenience is about as strong a word as is needed to describe what we will go through now. Serious PAIN will come for your grandkids (if you chose to have kids) in the form of ecological disasters such as crop failures, rising tides and floods, wildfires across entire regions, droughts, and storms so severe the rich will take to their luxury underground bunkers while the poor die on the surface. Can you be inconvenienced enough today to stop being a mindless consumer, shop at a thrift store, recycle something, plant a damned tomato plant, don't drive your car for once. Stay home and play with all the stuff you have.

  • Wish there was a setting to not suggest videos from a retard.

  • Like all lying dooms day propaganda, they just keep changing the date until they get a new group of SUCKERS to give them POWER and MONEY...its what they really want.

  • "F you cakes! Pie forever!" 🤣🤣

  • Solution: Make better stuff. Thanks, man.

  • Bill Nye, The Fucking Science Guy.

  • He's a strange mix of british and american comedy personality. The worse parts of each maybe, or it could just be that he's bad and cringey himself

  • Safety glasses off, motherfuckers

  • Oh come on, the gobal warming science predictions never come ture. Remeber Al Gore and the in 12 years polo bears die out? Hey there are still polo bears. So now the wolf aint coming, you have to make me care. If anyone really care about this gobal warming, he shouldnt make it a political issue via shit with nothing other than DNC slogans like this AOC bill and trying to sneak commie agenda in it.

  • What's sad is how easily the audience is trained and played. Every episode, flash of Trump taken completely out of context with no substantial political commentary. Then a quick barb joke, then move on before the audience can stop to process it. Again and again, for 20 minutes. It literally trains people to associate derisive laughter with the opposition. No wonder there is increasing violence against anyone with a MAGA hat. Look at the way the viewers respond to Trump simply saying "the Green New Deal" after 20 seconds of random anchors and politicians saying it. People laughed and booed. Before John even said a word. Just showing Trump makes these people react. Pitiful. "If it is booed at a Trump rally, it's probably good." That garbage bill would add over 42 TRILLION dollars to the debt in one decade. Nor would it address even half of the problem in the U.S. Nor would it dent even 5% of global emissions. People need to do independent research. Both sides are evil. Dems and the GOP are all working together to enrich the rich and impoverish everyone else. Open borders means lower wages and higher unemployment. No demographic is more affected by illegal immigration than black men. Doubling the minimum wage only increases unemployment and drops the value of a dollar. The one thing I disagree with Trump on is tax cuts, although 70% of Americans DID benefit from them. The rich don't need tax cuts. And corporations should not be taxed to death like under Obama, that's precisely what hurts the black business community. Corporations should pay taxes with job growth or wage increases for lower and middle positions as write offs. Buybacks do help people with a 401k, but executive bonuses help nobody.

  • I love how he glosses over the fact that democrats and republicans alike voted the Green New Deal down 62 to 0 for its sheer lunacy.

  • Plastic factories need to Fuck off!!!

  • You know that those bubbles in coke are .... CO2!

  • Do one on Indian elections... The right wing conservatives will be _pissed_

    • Plack morty he’ll definitely will see your comment with ZERO likes 😹😹😹

  • Saftey glasses off motherfuckers

  • John Oliver is stewie Griffin

  • Funny guy, but politically biase

  • when i was a kid me and my brother would watch bill nye, but at the same time another goofy scientist kid show was our favourite and i think it was called beakman's world. i wonder what happened to beakman, and he had a guy in a rat suit , not 100% why besides a lab assistant but there was a girl who was definitely a lab assistant, where in the world is beakman ...sandiago?!?!?

  • UK decreased CO2 emission mostly by replacing coal, ask the French what do they think about carbon tax.

  • John Oliver, Soros shill.

  • DEM: Implement gun control and back ground check, REP: The Dem is coming to get your guns. DEM: Green New Deal, REP: the Dem is trying to ban planes, trains and cars, and cows....Do republicans care about anything other than money and color of their skins? I don't understand if they don't want to be part of the solution, why become part of the problem?

  • Bill Nye’s part was perfect in so many ways.

  • 18:33.

  • If we can get some dam public transportation that is not shxt in this country and keep running out of budget by like 10 folds before even begin building it.... ppl dont have options other than driving in shxt traffic.
