Fox’s Tucker Carlson tonight faced off with none other than Bill Nye the Science Guy over climate change.
Carlson asked Nye about recent comments he made about how people refuse to accept the evidence despite scientific consensus. He challenged Nye on why people shouldn’t be more skeptical and honed in specifically on the issue of how much human activity has contributed to climate change.
Nye said there’s no question that human activity has sped up climate change and this is a matter that has been settled by the vast majority of the scientific community.
They went back and forth as Carlson demanded more specifics and Nye provided examples. Carlson said that he’s “doing a grave disservice to science” by limiting debate.
After Carlson interrupted him at one point, Nye held up his phone and said, “This is how long it takes you to interrupt me. It takes you quite a bit less than six seconds.”
Carlson said, “So much of this you don’t know. You pretend that you know, but you don’t know, and you bully people who ask questions…I’m open-minded, you are not.”
Nye wrapped the interview by briefly making some comments about White House leaks that a stunned Carlson found rather “ominous.”
