In an interview with CNN Los Angeles this morning Bill Nye (and his great bow tie) defends his belief that climate change is the overarching cause of the swath of wildfires burning across the midwest. After getting bashed by the news anchor, Nye presents some great statistics, like the fact that 16 out of the last 17 years have had record breaking heat waves. He may be on the right track, but the prevailing scientific thought is that climate change is just one of many factors leading to these fires
