Jon Stewart: Iranian Nukes Not as Big a Threat as Climate Change

On The Daily Show last night, Jon Stewart takes a break from bashing Donald Trump to talk about the Iran nuclear deal, which was also a major talking point when President Obama was on the show Tuesday night. Stewart lays into Republicans such as Sen. Lindsey Graham, who thinks it's a terrible deal even though he hasn't read it yet.

Stewart then shows a clip of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warning that Iran could still build a nuclear bomb in 10 or 15 years from now. Stewart's response? "10 or 15 years? With the way the world's going a nuclear Iran is going to be the least of our problems in 10 or 15 years. Iranian nukes will be a break from swimming through our climate-change flooded cities fighting ebola zombies with our teeth because we can't hold guns thanks to our iPhone-shaped hand tumors."

The annual Ig Nobel prizes were awarded Thursday by the science humor magazine Annals of Improbable Research for scientific experiments that seem somewhat absurd, but are also thought-provoking.
