Bill Nye the Science Guy on the New England Patriots Deflated Football Controversy… Oh yeah, and Climate Change [VIDEO]

Bill Nye the Science Guy is one of the biggest advocates of climate change awareness. This time, though, he’s focusing on something more fresh in our minds: the New England Patriots deflated football controversy, DeflateGate.

In this Funny or Die video, Bill Nye performs a scientific experiment to test Patriots coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady’s theory that a difference in temperature inside the locker room and on the field could account for the deflation. His test involved placing properly inflated footballs in a refrigerator at the claimed temperature difference during the 2015 AFC Championship game. Of course, while waiting for the results, Bill Nye sneaks in several comments about climate change. (He can’t resist talking about it, at least a little).

What did Bill Nye find out from his experiment? Hint: Bill Nye rooted for the Seattle Seahawks to win this year’s Super Bowl.
