I really like this podcast, and of course Jonathan is the best! But Bill Nye unfortunately is the worst. He's so mean to his fans, even going so far as to scream swearwords in little kids faces. He relies too much on rhetoric to lend much credibility to his theories, and is more actor than scientist. I won't be listening to this episode.

💯 Absolutely loved this!! Although I have to say, based on my research, solar is much more doable than he leads on in this talking about the baseline kind of dauntingly isn't productive for nay sayers to hear. People think omg we're going to freeze or something because there's no sun or wind at night... but there are technologies to contain and distribute it, that need to be further developed for sure, but they exist already. Like Bill touched on with the grids, but I wish he had expanded on that more because it is really more doable and not as extreme as people think. Also YES there are still socially liberal financially conservative Republicans who detest Trump. 🙋 😰🇺🇸

I agree with the general sentiments expressed but I think you might have been better served by an immunologist. have you listened to the ologies podcast? it also has a varying level of expertise but is generally pretty good and she has the benefit of fact checking post interview.

In the 80s the UK had Section 21 which said that you could not 'promote' homosexual information in the schools. It was something that was protested against and had removed. We are worried about it returning
