Bill Nye the TV “science guy,” recently sounded the alarm over climate change in a profanity-laced tirade that is making waves.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who had previously declared the earth could end in 12 years because of Climate Change is now saying she was merely joking.
Daily Caller reported that Ocasio-Cortez complained Sunday that GOP fact-checkers were taking her “dry humor” literally.
“This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and ‘fact check’ it,” she tweeted. “Like the ‘world ending in 12 years’ thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal. But the GOP is basically Dwight from ‘The Office’ so who knows.”

Nye appeared on HBO’s “Last week Tonight With John Oliver” where he went on a foul-mouthed rant over climate change.
Breitbart reported that appearing Sunday on HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Bill Nye launched into an profanity-laden and hyperbolic rant about climate change, exclaiming “the planet’s on fucking fire!”
“By the end of this century, if emissions keep rising, the average temperature on Earth could go up another four to eight degrees,” Nye said while discussing the Green New Deal, the far-left proposed stimulus package that aims to address global warming and economic inequality. “What I’m saying is the planet’s on fucking fire. There are a lot of things we could do to put it out — are any of them free? No, of course not. Nothing’s free, you idiots. Grow the fuck up. You’re not children anymore. I didn’t mind explaining photosynthesis to you when you were 12. But you’re adults now, and this is an actually crisis, got it?
Safety glasses off, motherfuckers,” he added.
