As tornadoes continue to batter America's heartland, on Tuesday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited Bill Nye and Bjorn Lomborg to join the program for an impassioned discussion on the environment, and climate change.
Noting that it's impossible to persuade Mother Nature once a natural disaster is underway, Nye suggested that the goal should be to improve the ways in which such events are planned for, and dealt with, all with a mind towards limiting trauma and tragedy:
"We could, for example, pass laws making it difficult or undesirable to build fragile houses in the path of tornadoes," said the gentleman forever known as "Bill Nye the Science Guy." "I'm not sure we disagree about that."
Labeling himself a "skeptical environmentalist" Lomborg echoed his counterparts sentiments, emphasizing preparedness and prevention:
"We need to make sure that people in Oklahoma have storm shelters. If you want to help people like that. If you want to help people with hurricanes, you need to do something about the levees in New Orleans," insisted the Danish author, academic, and writer. "We have many more people with much more stuff living close to where hurricanes hit. That's what we need to focus on, if we actually want to help future storm victims."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as the two men continue their climate change conversation, while Lomborg explains to Morgan what exactly it mens to be a "skeptical environmentalist."
