Transcript - Santa Claus: Ho ho ho. Hello from the North Pole. Bill Nye, you almost made my naughty list this year. You go around telling too many little boys and girls that magic doesn't exist. Here's my question for you Bill, if magic did not exist then how do I do what I do every Christmas Eve? And I've been doing it long before you were born young man. Ho ho ho ho ho ho. The only reason Bill you did not go on the naughty list is because of the wonderful work you're doing on climate change. You know I live in the North Pole and believe me we can use all the help we can get. Ho ho ho ho ho.
Bill Nye: Who said I didn't believe in magic? Who came up with that? The thing about you, Santa Clause, is you can be everywhere in the world at once. That's how you roll. I've seen it. I've witnessed it. I will say though I have met Santa Cause in many manifestations. The first time I heard this odd sort of vaguely Scottish accent mixed in with American accent speaking English. I guess Santa you speak every language there is. I mean you're Santa for crying out loud. As far as the North Pole melting, we're working on it. It's very troubling. You may have to convert some of your factories to floating factories. We're doing our best to here. I hope we can encourage young people, through science toys this holiday season, to learn more about science, to become more academically just more literate at the large and get ready to change the world. Thank you Santa for your good work once again this year. Carry on. My best to the elves. Carry on.
