Did everyone have a nice Earth Day? Good, because OUR PLANET IS DYING and it's important to appreciate it while it's still alive! It would be even better to save it from man-made climate change, of course, which is a point that Bill Nye—whom you may know as a guy of science—hammered when he appeared on CNN's guest panel for the environmental holiday.

Nye was especially riled up because CNN had also booked William Happer, a Princeton physicist and Trump advisor possessed by the wacky ideas that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant, that it isn't warming the planet, and that the "demonization of carbon dioxide is just like the demonization of the poor Jews under Hitler." (Yeah, he really said that. Just when you thought you'd heard every Hitler analogy!)

“I will say, as much as I love the CNN, you’re doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic, and not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change,” Nye said, calling Happer's inclusion on the panel a "disservice" to viewers and providing the real data about rising levels of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. When Happer pushed back with his bogus claims, Nye replied, "That’s completely wrong. Say what you will, but you have it absolutely wrong."

Next time you want to tangle with Nye, best to have a leg to stand on.
