>>>AND YOU GUYS, I’VE GOT TO SAY –>>YOU LIKE THAT?>>JUST FOR YOU.>>YOU LOOK PRETTY SHARP. IF YOU LIKE TO WORRY ABOUT THINGS YOU’RE LIVING IN A GREAT TIME.>>OKAY.>>SO — THIS IS JUST A TRADITIONAL DEMONSTRATION TO SHOW YOU THE BIG PROBLEM. I’M GOING TO MAKE A MARK ON THIS RED TAPE. AS WE WARM THIS WATER, IT EXPANDS. HERE YOU ARE — HOLD THE BULB.>>HOLD THE BULB.>>SHEINELLE HOLD THE BULB, BOTTOM PART. YOU KNOW IT WILL GO UP.>>SURE.>>THE RED LIQUID WILL GO UP.>>YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.>>SAME IS HAPPENING HERE. THERE YOU GO. AND THE SAME IS HAPPENING WITH THE WORLD’S OCEAN, EVERYBODY. YOU GET THIS ENORMOUS OCEAN JUST A LITTLE BIT WARMER, IT GETS BIGGER, JUST LIKE THIS. JUST LIKE THIS. AND WHEN IT GETS BIGGER, EXOTIC PLACES LIKE NORFOLK, VIRGINIA, GALVESTON, TEXAS TO A LESSER EXTENT MANHATTAN, ARE GOING TO HAVE WATER COMING IN TO YOUR LIVING ROOM, AND PEOPLE ARE GOING TO LEAVE. WHO’S GOING TO PAY FOR IT? ABANDON HOUSES. IT’S GOING TO BE A DRAG. SEE THAT? IN JUST A FEW SECONDS, WATER EXPANDS. JUST AS, JUST LIKE THE SPIRIT AND THE THERMOMETER. YOU DON’T NEED TO TAKE THAT WITH YOU.>>I’M WALKING BECAUSE — YOU’RE RIGHT. SOMETHING I HADN’T THOUGHT ABOUT.>>DOES GO UP. RIGHT?>>IT DOES.>>MOVING ALONG. THINGS TO DO.>>ANOTHER EXAMPLE.>>ANOTHER IMPORTANT THING. SO HERE IN THE WORLD IN WHICH WE LIVE, THERE WE ARE ADDING CARBON MONOXIDE TO THE AIR EXTRAORDINARILY FAST. THE CARBON MONOXIDE IS MIXING WITH THE OCEAN. HERE’S SOMETHING YOU CAN DO AT HOME. NOTHING BUT FUN. RED CABBAGE, BOILING WATER.>>UH-HUH.>>PRODUCES THIS LIQUID. CRAIG, IF YOU WOULD, PUT THE SHMINKIEST TINY SHMINK OF VINEGAR IN THIS ONE.>>A TINY DROP?>>USE YOUR JUDGMENT.>>WHOA. IT TURNED RED AS IF BY MAGIC. IT’S NOT MAGIC, IT’S –>>VINEGAR.>>SCIENCE.>>SCIENCE.>>SCIENCE!>>IF YOU WOULD, NOW, BLOW BUBBLES INTO THIS, ALSO.>>BECAUSE YOU BREATHE OUT CARBON DIE Y CARBON DIOXIDE.>>LIKE BREATHING INTO THE EARTH?>>INTO THE AIR. ADDING CARBON DIOXIDE MIXING WITH THE OCEAN FORMING CARBONIC ACID. WHAT SHE’S MIXING HERE. LOOK, IT’S CHANGING COLOR. ADDING THIS TO THE OCEAN IT’S BECOMING MORE AAID– ACIDIC, HARD ON SEA LIFE. YOU’RE WALK, THIRSTY AND SOMEONE HANDS YOU A BOTTLE OF VINEGAR INSTEAD OF WATER. WHAT WE’RE DOING TO THE ATMOSPHERE. THREE THINGS WE WANT FOR EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD.>>CLEAN WATER.>>RIGHT ON.>>CLEAN AIR?>>YEAH, CLEAN AIR, BUT I WAS GOING TO SAY, THE SECOND THING IS, RENEWABLY PRODUCED, RELY ELECTRICITY AND THE THIRD THING IS ACCESS TO THE INTERNET, FOR EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD.>>WE ALWAYS LEARN SOMETHING NEW.>>TRY THIS AT HOME AND THINK BIG ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE. LET’S CHANGE THE WORLD.>>I HAVE TO SAY, THANK YOU. IF YOU’D LIKE TO WATCH HIS NEW SHOW “BILL NYE SAVES THE WORLD.”

  1. The climate is changing. I also made my last video about the snowy blizzard that hit Romania (and not only). Although the images are absolutely fantastic, snowing in April is not a common thing here. Check it out on my channel if you like.

  2. I find it funny how they believe this guy. Yet will not believe a used car salesman. WELL MAYBE THESE PEOPLE DO

    Bill aka William Sanford Nye is an actor who gets paid 50k to 75k per appearance. Who was the son of Edwin Darby Nye a SALESMAN.

    He is only using salesman techniques his dad taught him & spreading lies he is told & PAID to spread.

  3. The oceans have been rising since the end of the last ice age. Now Bill wants us to believe that for the last 100 years the rise has been caused by humans. LOL
    Get a life, Bill.

  4. A science guy LMFAO he can't be or he would know the science behind this.

    The boiling/heated beaker water rise. If you look at it you will see the science behind it.
    The bottom is collecting a lot of bubbles while the top has 0 bubbles. The expanding water is because of mass of air changing in the bottom pushing the water up.

    Now the vinegar bottle it's cap has already been opened. The seal is broken so how do we know additive wasn't added. BTW her blowing into the beaker didn't change color so much so it can be science proven debunked. As she blow into it the sediment got remixed into the liquid.

  5. The oceans cannot acidify. Look it up. And Norfolk's problem is subsidence. It's got nothing to do with CO2 SMH

  6. this experiment doesn't prove anything. the earth isn't a test tube its a series of systems working together that we don't even completely  understand yet. no ones ever done a greenhouse effect test on a large scale like the earth, and don't even add all variables for real world application

  7. He doesn't explain Climate Change, he explains how matter expands when energy is put into it. And then bullshits us about vinegar. There is nothing wrong with CO2 absolving into water, it happens all the time in large numbers and no living creature is negatively affected by it.

  8. Wheres the video that shows how he faked global warming? I hear hes not an atmospheric scientist, so how is he qualified to say anything on it?

  9. https://www.biography.com/people/bill-nye-20950589
    Cornell graduate Mechanical Engineer worked for Boeing

  10. And yet … The oceans were like that in the past without us…and vertebrates did not exist until the acid went away …. Because carbonic acid dissolves calcium

  11. Recently there has been some information released showing why Bill Nye is doing these psudo-science policy pieces. We have a large concensus that points to him being a very black and white thinker, unable to escape his religious dogma. His high level of guilt is causing an occlusion of his ability to adjust stereotypes and think in shades. He doesn’t understand that people like Donald Trump have endured difficult situations in life raised and feared for the well being of his children, and felt anger, shame, and the range of human emotions. Sadly, Bill has not been able to develop these abilities to empathize and the confusion surrounding his purpose in life has developed into a misplaced religious support of a very unalterable and therefore, unscientific worldview. Bill, lets talk about this, you are getting too old to not address this need

  12. Can someone please explain how physics can be involved here? I know he doesn’t mention it but I’m working on it for a project so if someone knows please help

  13. Very nice "Quick Lab"! People should have whole year long high school courses devoted to environmental science, in order to understand and appreciate the concepts that make this happen.

  14. Junk science. The ratio's were talking about here would be like saying "see what happens when we place you underwater, you drown" vs "see what happens when we turn on the humidifier for 30 seconds, absolutely nothing". Even his cost analysis is ridiculous. Most structures are replaced in less than 100 years to begin with.

  15. carrying on, why is it not good to feed say vinegar (carbonic acid, thanks to power plant coal oil and gas, and gas and diesel engines) to phytoplankton ? (as I heard someone think well I don't need coral reefs) because it too like other now acid fed life will die —————————————— plankton give you 70% of the air in your room, as you read this, right now … ! (that's why)

  16. HEY BILL! Ways to combat climate change the low tech (doable) way:

    Get rid of all the dark soar cells and replace them with the transparent (10% efficient) panels. Half the efficiency but you can have them in more places, and sunlight is free so it doesn't really matter how inefficient they are. And for the roofs use reflective stuff under to get a double dose to the panels and (mainly) to reflect the sunlight back into space. This has to be done, replacing every solar cell on the planet cos the dark ones are defeating the purpose (and could even be helping global warming).

    All roads, airfields etc. should be painted (or made) light color to help reflect sunlight. A town in the USA did that and it lowered the temp of the town (on YouTube). Also every roof part also has to have reflective paint (not just under the transparent solar cells).

    Scrape all that plastic off the sea, melt it down and make little plastic white balls out of it and release them over the ocean if need be. Maybe don't cover the whole ocean. lol

    Make heaps of desalinators and water the land until it starts raining again. Use the salt to sell it to the great American (and Australian) diet.

    Grow heaps of trees, using the desalinated water.

    Desparately work on FUSION, and leave MARS alone so we can. If we do what I said (and sort out climate change) then we can worry about Mars.

    Make 60 ft diameter pill shaped floats (much like a toilet float) with the arm. There is a smaller version of it on YouTube. The best wave power device, least maintenance and toughest on YouTube. And is easily decommissioned in the roughest weather. But 60 ft diam ones would be better and half full of water. That is so you can have a downstroke action that is as powerful as the upstroke (floating on the waves). Many of them should provide a lot of power and with direct drive generators (like with some wind turbines) less maintenance and better efficiency. They would all need a pier each so whack a large wind turbine on top of each.

    Wind turbines are noisy so unattractive for houses, but the spinning drum turbines are basically silent and though less efficient they can be scaled up a bit more and still look ok. Just have them tall and skinny. One on each house should be mandatory.

    If what I said was made MANDATORY (the only real way to make it happen) we could reverse climate change in learly an instant (cos that's what's required).
