Fox News’ Tucker Carlson went head to head Monday night with Bill Nye the ‘Science’ guy and it was like watching the school nerd beating up on the bully. Except in this case the nerd was Tucker Carlson and the bully was Bill Nye.
The subject was #Climate Change, a subject Nye claims to be an expert on, and throughout the nearly 10-minute exchange, he couldn’t answer even the most basic questions posed by Carlson.
Carlson began by pointing out some recent statements Nye made regarding climate skeptics, saying they suffered from psychological delusions and should be jailed.
Carlson then went on to ask Nye a very simple question: To what degree is human activity causing climate change?
Carlson wanted to know if it was 100 percent, or 74.3 percent, and “since it was ‘settled science’ please tell our audience how much is based on human activity?”

Depends on what degree means
Nye first argued about what the word ‘degree‘ meant and said we should be concerned about the speed at which climate change is occurring.
“Instead of happening on time-scales of millions of years, or say 15,000 years, it’s now happening on a time scale of decades, even years.” Nye seemed to forget the Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age, both of which lasted centuries and long before SUVs.
