Refusing to acknowledge any benefit of fossil fuels, Bill Nye instead compares their use to the “limitless energy in the form of human slaves” that built ancient Pompeii.

MARC MORANO: “Do you acknowledge fossil fuels have been one of the greatest liberators of man kind?”

BILL NYE: “Have you been to Pompeii? And, this is not changing the subject? Pompeii is extraordinary. The ancient Romans built this amazing place that’s still amazing because they had limitless energy in the form of human slaves. So [laughs], it’s– having limitless energy for your populous is great, but you don’t want to have it to the detriment of the future. It’s fundamental, Mr. Morano…

    This is what happens when you make celebrities out of pseudo-scientists . The hypocrisy, and childish things this man says, supposedly representing the scientific community, seem boundless. Incredibly ignorant of any history. So self serving he bites the hand that has fed him and the hand that fed his ancestors. We all know that fossil fuels have pulled Billions out of poverty and premature death, disease, hunger, provided education, etc. Well, all of us except these narcissistic parasites, that never give, never get their hands dirty, but are so quick to criticize anything that does not fit their dream of some godless utopia.. People like this never drive anything forward, they push us backwards.
