Bill Nye the Science Guy Tackles DeflateGate and Promotes Climate Change Awareness in a Funny or Die Sketch

In a recent sketch by Funny or Die, Bill Nye the Science Guy tackles the issue of DeflateGate by scientifically testing New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick‘s claims about change in temperature deflating footballs. To do this, Nye shoves properly inflated balls into a refrigerator to match the supposed temperature differential during the 2015 AFC Championship game.

While Nye’s balls cooled down, he took the time to get fired up and remind viewers that unlike football inflation, climate change is real issue that should be taken seriously.
