Bill Nye’s years of experience teaching science to children seem to have prepared him well for talking to Fox News hosts. Here, he attempts to help Happening Now host Jon Scott grasp difficult concepts like “volcanoes are not connected to the burning of fossil fuels” and “the science that happens on the moon … is the same science that happens on Earth.” Favorite line: “When you say to yourself, well, I’m going to ignore all the evidence of climate change, you’re saying, I’m going to ignore the best ideas anybody’s ever had.”
