Environmentalist and famed TV science educator Bill Nye is speaking out against President Donald Trump’s repeated dismissals of global warming, sounding the alarm on his refusal to act before it’s too late.
“Everybody, we have a chance to do this right, to save the world for humans,” Nye, former host of his self-titled Disney program “Bill Nye the Science Guy,” told MSNBC on Friday. “The Earth’s going to be here no matter what we do. We want to save it for us, for us humans. The current administration is taking extraordinary steps in the wrong direction.”
Nye went on to condemn the president’s “bluster” on the matter, which he called “very troubling” and said makes it difficult for scientists to ensure their work is taken seriously by the public.
“Instead of being the world leader technologically in addressing climate change, the United States has become a pariah,” Nye said. “My colleagues on other continents are very concerned about the United States’ lack of initiative.”
Earlier this month, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released an expansive special report warning that intensifying heat and disrupted food sources could exacerbate poverty and international conflict, potentially forcing communities to migrate. Meanwhile rising sea levels and coastal erosion is expected to chip away at available land.
