9 Times Bill Nye Blew Our Minds With Climate Change Knowledge
Take it from the Science Guy—it’s time to #ActOnClimate!
If you (or your kids) grew up watching Bill Nye the Science Guy, you know he’s got a knack for explaining complicated science so that just about anyone can understand. In the nineties, it was middle schoolers. Now it’s climate change deniers.
Bill Nye is on a mission to spread climate change knowledge and challenge deniers so that we can finally solve the climate crisis. And best of all, he’s doing it in incredibly creative ways that consistently surprise, delight and amaze us.
Here are 10 times he blew us away:
1. Climate 101
Bill Nye is always up for teaching a lesson. Class is in session! Get schooled in climate science with this video, in classic Science Guy fashion.
2. Emoji Climate Science
Climate science is complex. Never fear, the Science Guy is here to break down the basics using only emoji. Yes, emoji.
3. 100 Percent Renewable
Bill Nye has #ClimateHope! The U.S. could go almost 100-percent renewable by 2050, he says. But we have to get to work.

4. Five Things You Need to Know
Spoiler alert: The most important thing is how fast our climate is changing.
Everyone can help move us forward on the road to a clean energy future. Even NASCAR!
We all need to take #ClimateAction now. Step on it, @NASCAR! https://t.co/f8nLm8HFv5— Climate Reality (@Climate Reality)1454724239.0
6. Signs of Climate Change
The signs of climate change are all around us and impossible to ignore.
Bill floods Texas. Alaska is on fire. Just a little global warming & climate change. Nothing to worry about… http://t.co/l2qAaiytE6— Bill Nye (@Bill Nye)1434476411.0
7. It's Not Rocket Science
It’s not rocket science—it’s climate science! Climate change affects us all and no one needs a PhD to understand that our Earth is getting warmer.
8. Get to Work
Bill Nye knows we don’t have time for climate change deniers. It’s time to wise up and get to work.

One hundred seconds to midnight. That's how close humanity is to the apocalypse, and it's as close as the world has ever been, according to Wednesday's annual announcement from the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, a group that has been running its "Doomsday Clock" since the early years of the nuclear age in 1947.

The majority of Americans are stressed, sleep-deprived and overweight and suffer from largely preventable lifestyle diseases such as heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. Being overweight or obese contributes to the 50% of adults who suffer high blood pressure, 10% with diabetes and additional 35% with pre-diabetes. And the costs are unaffordable and growing. About 90% of the nearly $4 trillion Americans spend annually for health care in the U.S. is for chronic diseases and mental health conditions. But there are new lifestyle "medicines" that are free that doctors could be prescribing for all their patients.
Taking an unconventional approach to conduct the largest-ever poll on climate change, the United Nations' Development Program and the University of Oxford surveyed 1.2 million people across 50 countries from October to December of 2020 through ads distributed in mobile gaming apps.
