Known best by third and fourth graders nationwide for his wacky experiments and science-themed parody songs, Bill Nye the Science Guy is, believe it or not, a legit scientist. In his post-PBS life, Nye has made it known that he believes global warming to be a product of humans; he recently appeared on The O'Reilly Factor to make his case. Treehugger writes of his debate with the weather forecaster Joe Bastardi:
He's also right about the recent 'cooling' trend touted by so many non-science types. Since 1998 was so exceptionally hot, many climate action opponents use it to obscure the fact that subsequent years, while not all as hot as '98, have shown a definite warming trend throughout the 2000s. They falsely claim a 'cooling trend' occurred, when, in fact, the 00s were found to be the hottest decade on record by a number of scientific institutions, including the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA.
Sporting his signature bow tie (sadly no lab coat), Nye keeps his composure, bringing up a number of valid points and a reference map while O'Reilly refereed the two.

Jim Browning is a YouTuber from the UK who has an amazing ability to catch scammers in the act.

In this video, he responds to a scam email claiming he bought a laptop by breaking into the scammer's computer. In the process he uncovers where the scammers work, their banking information, and even their personal identities.

"I got an 'invoice' email telling me that I had paid for a $3800 laptop," Browning writes on his YouTube page. "No links... just a phone number. It's a real shame that these scammers emailed me because I was able to find out exactly who they were and where the were."
