Tucker Carlson vs. Bill Nye: Round Two – The Science Guy’s Reply


Tucker Carlson: So much of this you don’t
know. You pretend to know but you don’t know,
and you bully people who ask you questions. Bill Nye: I really have to disagree with you. I’ve spent a lot of time with this topic. Tucker Carlson: I’m open minded. You are not. Bill Nye: Mr. Carlson. What happened to you man? You used to be affable. You used to be friendly. You used to wear a nice tie. Now you wear one of those bibs and I don’t
know. So I don’t know what happened to you man
but I want you to consider that from a scientific perspective pick the number you like, 97 percent
of the world’s scientists, very close to 100 percent of the world’s scientists are
very concerned about climate change. And so why aren’t some people concerned
about it? When media outlets were allowed to be consolidated
in the1980s. Then it developed these two factions like
I don’t remember it having. And by that I think two factions are a normal
course of events where you have males and females, you have boys and girls whether it’s
fruit flies or dandelions or you and me. And in the World Cup soccer you end up with
two teams. The World Series baseball you end up with
two teams. It’s really hard to have three teams. And two political parties nominally. So somebody who understands this better than
I do may observe that the media have divided into two camps. But from our point of view on the science
and engineering side you’ve got to respect the facts at some level. You’ve got to respect what is scientifically
provable. And then speaking of authorities and mistrust
of authorities, the crowd at the inauguration. It was an objectively smaller crowd than the
crowd the next day at the women’s march. If someone asserts that the crowd is bigger
when it was clearly smaller then everything else he or she says is subject to question. And this had led to a lot of trouble. So I think though that built into the U.S.
government which includes the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights is freedom of the press. Built in is change. So I’m very hopeful, I’m optimistic that
things will change. That my understanding is subscriptions to
so called mainstream media, Washington Post, New York Times and so on have gone up in response
to this approach to objective truths. So that will probably be to the good. But how fast will it happen and what will
go wrong in the meantime? These are big questions. And then as far as my thing with Mr. Carlson,
I don’t know. He used to not interview that way. He used to not just talk the whole time. Tucker Carlson: At what point would it have
changed? And I’m just saying you don’t actually
know because it’s unknowable. Bill Nye: This is how long it takes you to
interrupt me, OK. It takes you quite a bit less than six seconds. I’d go back again in a second Mr. Carlson. If you had me on again I will come right back
on. Bring it on man. And you know what else Mr. Carlson, I’ll
bet you $10,000 that 2010-2020 will be the hottest decade on record. I offered a bet of $10,000 to Joe Bastardi
who is a Fox news contributor and Marc Morano who I’m not sure is a contributor but used
to appear on your station routinely, your network routinely. I bet them each $10,000 bucks 2010-2020 would
be the hottest decade on record. I bet them each another $10,000 bucks on the
decade, $10,000 bucks on the year 2016. 2016 would have been among the top ten hottest
years on record. Wait, there’s more. 2016 was the hottest year on record. And your guys, the people that Fox News heretofore
supports in this would not take either bet – $40,000. Wouldn’t take the bet. Could have been theirs. I’m good for it.

    Everyone is not aware of how the media and governments this covering the climate change, denying bill Nye's facts and having viewers believe them (which is working ig). And when the time comes where it becomes a life depending situation, itll be too late

  • Tori Redlund

    Why are all ya'll talking crap about Bill Nye? Climate change is very real, I know that going into a meteorology degree. And as far as I'm concerned, Tucker Carlson is very political basised. And plus he says he's opened minded, that is until someone who has a different opinion comes along. Seriously, Bill is just trying to speak his mind. Wouldn't you be upset if you were trying to tell people about something important and got interupted every few seconds. A conversation shouldn't sound like a political debate. Oh, and by the way climate change and global warming are the same thing.

  • Arden Kroesbergen

    "The crowd at the inauguration was objectively smaller than the crowd at the women's march."

    …what does that have to do with anything?
    Alright then, well the crowd for the pro-life march was objectively larger than either the inauguration or the women's march, and yet it got very little to no media coverage. Funny how that works, eh Bill?

  • ALEX Mathis

    This channel is a biased joke scientist make claims yet like tucker asked there are not any specific rates as to why climate is changing like how much or how big of a rate

  • OrangeThief

    If the world was left untouched by human activity, it would take thousands of years for the climate to be the way it currently is. Climate change does in fact happen in nature, but at a significantly slower rate than it currently happens, as we have humans have introduced many different factors that would not occur in nature. Want examples? Creation of plastics, burning of fossil fuels, the list goes on. We shouldn't necessarily just stop producing pollutants and such, but we should try to slow it down as well as do our part to slow down the rate of which the climate is changing.

    These are the ramblings of a sleep deprived man from Canada, so take everything said with a grain of salt please.

  • ORIGINALDOGMAN John Castro

    bill nye please shut the fuck up youre a fucking idiot!!!! from the wise words of gollum/smeagal leave now and never come BACK!!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWweqP_ZWbg

  • Brady Jones

    Yeah but why didn’t he say these things when he was on the show. Why doesn’t bill nye mention the mechanics and the nature of the substances causing climate change, such as how a photon of light correlates to “man made global warming”. All of which would be more convincing. I don’t think bill nye is wrong but he acts more like a popularizer rather than a scientist.

  • acktion jackson

    How can you have round to when the other person is in there to defend himself? Are you just Shadow Boxing and listening to the sound of your own voice? You got shit on in the interview Bill and couldn't explain your position properly so the correct thing to do would have been to get your facts straight and go back on and debate him again but I think we all know you're far too cowardly to do that.

  • John Rodgers

    ROUND TWO! In this corner, Bill Nye! In the opposite corner…. (crickets chirping)
    BILL: Now that I have the ring all to myself, I will repeat again the mindless appeal to authority argument.
    BILL: Tucker is not here to interrupt me with his calls for actual numbers that he can calculate for himself.
    BILL: Who does he think he is? He does not wear a white lab coat!
    BILL: How dare he ask for proof that he can see for himself!!
    BILL: Behold, I point to a large number of authorites and you must bow before them.
    BILL: Bow or be labeled a denier of science!
    BILL: Bow and accept their conclusions as scientific fact!
    BILL: Bow and forfeit all sovereign rights as a nation and accept your fate of bankruptcy!
    BILL: Numbers? We don't need no stinking numbers.
    BILL: My opinion is more true than the laws of physics themselves!
    BILL: Where did everybody go? I was diatribing! COME BACK HERE AND BOW!

    Only popularity contest in comment section.
    People branding legitimate science and it's warnings as politics so that they could feel good about themselves doing nothing.
    "It's a matter of opinion!" -"There's a debate", "It would warm-up anyway….".
    Yeah… sit back, take it easy. No need to use brain. Enjoy all the convenience of modern society (while it lasts).
    We don't like the message so lets ridicule the messenger, call a millionaire TV host to wave his golden Rolex while yelling at him.
    Let's watch Tucker! Now, there's a guy who knows how to think… or how NOT to ask important questions in order to keep his job.
    Obedient little cog-wheel in corporate machine.
    The kind of a hero we should all strive to be.
    Keep it a popularity contest. It's easier for the folks to digest it.
    People don't want to read a book, they have Tucker-man to call their ignorance "skepticism" and to put it on par with scientific evidence. Yeah… relax. You are NOT an idiot. Hell, there's a debate.! Jury is still out on this one, we might not hang… yet!
    But our children?? -That's another story.
    Good show. Reality is so boring.

  • Peter S

    Tucker acted like a retarded sjw during the Nye interview. He was representing the interests of the oil baron oligarchy.

  • adam brown

    He just said "boys and girls" speaking about things being broke into 2…but makes a disgusting pedophilia video on how gender isn't binary!…can someone plz explain this joke to me, cause he's a big one! Tucker Carlson never denied climate change as this poor hack is saying, watch the interview he simply asks for proof and Bill Nye"the silence guy" (who wants to jail climate change deniers) couldn't give even one shred of data…what a fraud!!!

  • Richard Wyant

    When you ride a bus or bike, walk or carpool I'll listen to you. You and your liberal buddies jetting around the globe constantly pumping CO2 into the atmosphere should try leading by example instead of telling people that they have to change, they have to sacrifice. Put up or shut up.

  • V R_46

    OMG. Do the people here really believe climate change is not a problem? I place my bet on bill. You will see when you experience the heat in the next decades

  • Terry Breedlove

    Make science grants available but only to research proof against GW and watch how fast your 97% change their minds over night.

  • teaddub

    Sorry, Bill. What happened to you? You used to teach the scientific method. You know science doesn't 'prove,' it provides evidence. Science is never settled, there is always something to learn. You used to provide evidence, now you accuse people of being a denier instead. Your bets have been lost! The hottest year on record was 1936. Worldwide. We are now in a warming hiatus, and every model has missed its mark. Those models are based on false records, guesses that have proven to be wrong, and forecasts that have no basis in science. You're not a science guy. You're a paid actor and a globalists shill.

  • christian0097

    You look more like a creepy paedophile priest than a scientist.
    And is this scripted or did you make it up on the script? Because you still sound like you have no idea what you are talking about. Bill Nye you need to remove Science out of your name now.

  • Fred Herbert

    Bill nye is a moron. Sucking the liberal tit in order to remain relevant. Looking like a retarded Michael Bolton.

  • Shawana Washington

    Bill Nye likes camping. About 20 years ago he was in the Allegheny mountains and a screw worm entered his nostril, then proceeded into his brain. And, voila, this is what we have today.

  • Brian Lane

    If he were a serious and intellectual man, he would have explained to viewers that there is a natural pattern of heating and cooling on this planet and we are currently in a heating phase. All scientists acknowledge this, but their contention is that there is an unnatural increase to this heating due to greenhouse gasses from man.
    Whether or not, therefore, global warming is true, our years and decades would be getting hotter and hotter until the natural planetary increase ended and the cooling phase began.
    He would have to have integrity to say this. He would have to respect the intelligence of those who support him.

  • Leonardo Espino

    Bill Nye you’re such a little coward that you didn’t even invite tucker because you’re afraid of being exposed as a liberal mouthpiece. You are no longer the “science guy” I used to respect every time my teacher showed us your science videos but now, I have to say you are a liar. I will never watch your science videos because it seems that you’re a liar right now by not advancing the things you used to teach audiences back in the day

  • Joe Janes

    I guess if bill would of had longer than seconds or had a stupid answer to what would weather be like now without humans and said just bad or he could of formed more than two damn words without being badgered and talked over the conversation maybe if the dumbass would shut the fuck up and listen he could of made an actual point round two for his point was good instead of question …..well answer the question . Question…. answer the question well I guess I would be able to answer a question if I had more than 6 fucking seconds what in the actual fuck

  • Richard Wyant

    No one denys climate change, just the rate at which humans are responsible. Those of us who have been around awhile remember when science warned us of an impending ice age with just as much certainty. When you and your fellow elites stop with your carbon emissions I'll stop mine.

  • AyAyron

    why does this have so many dislikes? isn't the point that climate change is real and that mainstream media is dividing people? don't think hes wrong. maybe the gender example was bad…

  • Jason Chalmers

    Look dude, you got owned and you make this video as a rebuttal with NO resistance against you. Btw, you’re not a scientist! You keep saying “us in the science community “! You’re not a scientist, you’re a political hack.

  • Sam Ryan

    Sir, kid, lil' boy, you don't know a thing climate change, because everytime he asked you the same question you studderred fool. You know why because you it's fake or not as severe as it really yet you've made so much money off that twisted lie that you can't turn back, just like all the evolutionist and their evolution god, good news for you Nye guy keep up the fuss and Hell will get the climate just right to bake your soul into ashes never to be seen again.

  • H O N E Y B E E

    Regular Song :🎵 "Bill Nye the Science Guy"🎵

    Me: 🎵🎵"Bill Nye your mom's a GUY!"🎵🎵🤪





    *NOTE* I dont disrespect him, i just came up with that and i thought it was kinda funny soOoOo dont hate plz!

  • Tacit Blue

    Tucker asked him what degree has the climate been affected by people, since its settled science, he didn't answer then and he didn't answer here either.

  • SomeCatchyName

    Bill Nye what happened to the fun Science guy of our childhood, now you're just embarassing yourself. Please stop trying to be something you're not and you're making a fool of yourself obviuously to everyone who used to admire you. Mechanical Engineer Bill Nye fails to answer standard Scientist questions. Not the Science guy after all eh?

  • mike cafano

    Bill. If i knew who you really are. My kids would have been banned watching you. There adults now. You never influenced them.. I did !

  • Tkong 17

    Seeing all these naive people on YouTube makes me feel like a genius sometimes. Wonder how many people actually understand what Bill Nye was saying about climate change.
    Clear. Straight. Answer. Was. Given.

  • John Riddle

    Bill Nye is relying on manipulated data of temperature change and there is nothing that shows temperature change is man related. He has yet to prove his point.

  • Patrick LaBelle

    For what it is worth, I am a physicist with a PhD from an Ivy league university. I am not a climatologist (I am a theoretical particle physicist) and I have spent my career looking at experimental data. I have looked at many of the papers on climate modelization and the evidence is extremely shaky. For example, they always hide a lot of details on their models. They do not specify how many free parameters are used, how the values are chosen and what are the uncertainties on them. They do not detail the uncertainties on the warming they get. There are uncertainties due to the input parameters, there are uncertainties due to the discretization, there are errors due to the models neglecting some effects, etc. It is never made clear what the uncertainties are. When money started pouring in the field (and of course the more alarmist some were, the more they could ask for more money and the more they got), the entire field became very biased and unreliable. Then journals were created who were just approving alarmist results and rejecting anything that didn't suit their narrative.
    But I guess that Nye would just say that I am too stupid to understand….

  • gary rose

    Bill bill bill you need to quote things properly
    97% of climate scientists agree that climate change is real as the globe is in a constant system change and that humans cause some amount of effect on climate as a result of our actions.
    That’s it bud, that’s what the 97% agree too. Nothing more!
    Besides the fact that science is not or has ever been, a majority vote thing.
    It’s important to remember this people are the scientific experts of our world and are the men and women who study this stuff and understand their individual fields much better than we could ever do!
    When people say 97% of scientists agree! They then tend to skip the bit where they state as above what it is they agree too. They simply say 97% of scientists agree then continue on to their facts about ice melt, temps, water levels etc etc this implies that it’s all the information the speaker is stating 97% of climate scientists agree too,
    They do not ! they only agree with the above statement

  • Minnie

    Why is he rambling on like an idiot making bets ?? Just state the facts you claim to have !! That’s all tucker asked for 😂

  • Texas Arcane

    Missing Tucker Carlson. Nye is truly an effeminate candy ass joke. This monologue is so cringey. You know this soyboy has never been punched in the face.

  • Guitar73 T

    That entire interview went like this…

    Tucker asks a question, Bill begins to answer it, Tucker interrupts with another question and tells Bill he doesn't know what he's talking about. Bill then begins to list a bunch of facts to support that he knows what he is talking about, then Tucker says "that's not true."

  • stefan johnson

    This man is a lying ass who has never been made to walk any of them back. Keep this creep away from your children. He can't even get ice right.

  • Sofia Flamehawk

    You know to be honest i dont understand why this is even a debate. Even IF climate change isnt real we should still care more about our carbon emission and pollution problem for all of the other problems we know for a scientifically proven FACT is happening. Acid rain for example
    Dirty drinking water
    Animals eating our garbage
    Air pollution from fossil fuels
    All the things said to effect climate change too why not just stop because we should instead of debating about it

  • L Lou

    Bill Nye the unscientific no debate guy. Seriously, NO, scientist does what he does. He just says the same thing again and again. How embarrassing, Tucker tore him apart and he had NO evidence, just climate change dogma. The Russian model was accurate and shows a NEGLIGIBLE affect from humans and a minimal temperature change. So why does Bill Nye the unscientific no debate guy keep spouting such BS, because HE GETS PAID FOR IT. Clearly an engineer who is NOT a scientist is fighting an agenda for someone who arranges his nice work payments, that's my opinion and it goes in line with many greedy pseudoscience people, a huge threat and leech money out of people for no good reason. So think twice, this children's presenter is not to be taken seriously AT ALL. So simply put, if you see Bill Nye the unscientific no debate BS Pseudoscience guy, ignore the dogma he spouts.

  • Ethan Warden

    Bill Nye makes me sad. He got linked in an interview when he had no answers then makes this stupid shit. Keeps saying respect the facts but won't reveal them. No answer for causation or a remedy. Fuck this guy.

  • Faron Fowler

    what is this guy talking about?! Good God shut up Bill Nye! Stop drinking the kool aid! 2016 was the hottest on record!? No mention of solar activity – zero mention – LMAO
