Last Week Tonight with John Oliver pretty much nails the television news media’s treatment of the climate change (non)debate.

Come for the Bill Nye cameo, stay for the overwhelming weight of scientific evidence and universal consensus showing that man-made climate change is real and happening now.

Another way to sum up the problem with how climate change science is represented by the news: We have to tune in to comedy shows to get a straight look at the facts.

In the first episode of Makin’ Friends with Ryan Miller, we meet robot-building, trampoline-dwelling, toy-making Jaimie Mantzel. 

Another nice pairing with Slomo: these guys are doing what they want to do. Enviable freedom.
