KATIE PHANG (HOST): What do you say to people like Tucker Carlson who not only have the facts wrong, but use their huge platforms to spread disinformation about climate change?

BILL NYE (GUEST): It's deeply concerning and so the challenge -- the science is settled. The challenge there with conservative media is what -- how do we reach people who might be watching it? Now, the people who already made up their minds, accept everything their conservative talk show hosts tell them, they're probably not reachable right away. But, there's got to be people who watch it with skepticism, who watch it with stroking their chins and those are the people I very much want to influence, want the scientists of the world to influence before the upcoming elections, because if you want to do something about climate change, everybody, it's voting. And we are in a situation where we have lawmakers who are in denial about the science of climate change and it's very concerning.
