John Oliver's Last Week Tonight takes on the cable "news" networks and their constant muddying of the waters on climate change with their "fair and balanced" debates.

Last Week Tonight's John Oliver took a whack at our cable "news" networks and their part in distorting the discussion on global warming and climate change by continually giving their audiences the impression that there are an equal number of people on both sides of this debate.

Oliver brought on one of their favorite guests, Bill Nye, but this time, Nye had a little extra help on the set.
