You know we've been out covering this terrible drought now the worst in decades here in the United States.
And many scientists and others have come out and wondered.
Whether this drought.
Another extreme weather events may be due in some way to climate change so.
Today we figured would ask you real scientists and real will loan -- that Bill Nye the Science Guy joins us has been on the show before and he's back from LA right now.
All right bill so that the people who say that the drought is in some way related to global warming or climate change is science on their side.
As miserable as good as it is is actually consistent.
With the mathematical models the predictions.
Associated with climate change.
Necessary -- business now imagine everybody if this is just the first year of this right imagine this is gonna happen.
Every year or every couple years for many decades to come gonna get worse and worse.
-- questions I wanna go first to the use of the word pattern because those who I have their doubts serve.
Brought up doubts about global warming or climate change will say all this that we see these critical patterns before that the weather patterns whether it's.
Hurricanes -- -- droughts or whatever are cyclical and we've seen this type of thing albeit a long time ago before and it's just repeating itself and you say what.
That may be butchered.
Your taken one -- -- data and extrapolating.
-- extraordinary fashion.
Yeah everybody who I encourage everyone.
To get an agreement with the facts it just examine the facts.
And so this should be we would claim that the last.
That sixteen of the last seventeen years have been the warmest on record right.
When the Planetary Society was forming over landing on Mars Sunday night when the Planetary Society was formed in 1980.
A little over four billion.
Well now it's over seven billion.
And when the planetary society's for -- rounding to one digit there were 300 parts per million of carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere.
Right now there are 4600 all of this together and what you're predicting are telling us is that the science tells you largely because in your view of global warming from what -- -- away from it.
For climate change we're gonna see more of these types of events more and more of them.
So this is what everybody.
The scientists predict yes.
So I -- encourage everybody to to really grasp these the fundamental facts.
That the world is getting warmer.
If you want to sort of have close your eyes and say what humans have nothing to do -- it.
But -- gonna do about it the world is getting warmer warmer and warmer and these situations are getting more and more serious.
So we hit pretty soon we're gonna have to do something or the quality of life for everybody in the world is gonna go down because.
There's one thing that we all share right and that's the atmosphere we all share the atmosphere we'll -- -- everybody -- really.
What a deficit whatever happens over here affects everybody in the world whatever happens over there affects everybody in the world we do -- this may seem extraordinary to a lot of people but.
I was gonna say how it is thank you go we got a little bit of breaking news on unfortunate because if the would you go now but -- we have to get to that I thank you very much for coming out today the Mars landing Sunday night everybody is going to be historic pay you very much.
