Bill Nye on Climate Change and Politics
Bill Nye, the Cornell-trained engineer and beloved popularizer of Science, gets serious about climate change, and the politics that exacerbate the problem, endangering our planet.
The science educator doesn’t mince words. He sites climate change denial as a serious issue, spear-headed by big-name republican politicians, especially the three Republican Candidates currently running for President. Nye believes climate change is now a partisan issue because the conservatives readily accept money from the fossil fuel industry.
And since politics is all about survival, Nye feels millennial voters are key to changing the status quo: to garner their votes conservatives may change their tune regarding climate change in years to come.
Bill Nye rose to fame as the host of the popular television show “Bill Nye the Science Guy.” He continues to further his career in science education as the current head of The Planetary Society.
