Bill Nye already tackled the science of DeflateGate for Good Morning America but in a new video for Funny or Die, the “Science Guy” put his theory to the test by putting some warm footballs in a cool refrigerator.
But while he was waiting for the balls to cool down, Nye revealed his ulterior motive. “While we have a few minutes here, I’d like to talk about something else,” he said. “Climate Change is real!”
“While we’re all obsessed with DeflateGate, let’s keep in mind that’s there’s something about which you should give a fuck!” he continued. “Yes, like Tom Brady, the world is getting hotter and hotter, because we humans are pumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.”
But what you do about it? “You should vote for congressmen and senators that appreciate the threat of climate change and the rate at which the world is getting warmer, so that we can preserve the Earth for humankind for generations to come!”
At that point, it was time to get the balls out of the fridge and after giving them a squeeze, Nye concluded that the Patriots probably “bent the rules a little bit.”
