2. Conservatives weren't going to read the GND no matter who it was from.

Just like the Mueller report, they didn't actually read it, they just summarized it their own way and are choosing to go along believing what they want to believe.

4. I would hope that the last Bill Nye

segment goes viral! It should at least be sent, via the tweet machines, to every RW climate change denying idiot on a daily basis.

5. I sure agree! That was not just very well done, but he was also quite amusing!

I was pretty impressed that John Oliver got the perfect guest!

11. I felt like

Bill Nye was frustrated enough to do a series of skits where he swears. I feel odd seeing him talk like that because I've always seen the teevee persona.

12. I wondered about that, too! It was kinda shocking!

But then he's speaking to a completely different audience - late night on HBO!

8. Yea, Verily, the End is Nye

 

I'm sorry, I apologize, please try to forgive me, but I couldn't resist saying that! But don't worry, I'm going back to my den hole now.

10. The GND is equal in magnitude to the catastrophe upon us

I love the big thinking. We need big ideas. We still have a modicum of time, but NOT MUCH. I'm all in for the Green New Deal.

16. That's the thing!

All this foot dragging and inexplicable denial is costing us precious time! I'm all in for whatever plan will move us forward.

15. That's one thing about John Oliver - he seems capable of attracting any guest!

But I agree that this was one of his best!
