In recent years, science’s good name has been dragged through the mud, but Bill Nye — formerly the Science Guy, now Science Man — is here to rescue us all. His new series Bill Nye Saves the World comes to Netflix in Spring 2017, and according to a press release, “each episode will tackle a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths, and refuting anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders or titans of industry.”
Politicians making anti-scientific claims, you say? Such as President Elect Donald Trump’s pick to run the EPA, Scott Pruitt, claiming, “Scientists continue to disagree about the degree and extent of global warming and its connection to the actions of mankind.” Bill Nye, an advocate for climate science, agrees with the 97% of the world’s scientists who avow that climate change is very real and likely caused by mankind’s actions.
Or, for example, the President-Elect’s tweet on the subject:
The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 6, 2012
We can only imagine what the Science Man’s response will be to Trump.
Nye says he and his correspondents from the worlds of comedy, academia, fashion and YouTube will also take on controversial topics like vaccinations and genetically modified foods, continuing his “mission to change the world by getting people everywhere excited about the fundamental ideas in science.”
