Saturday Selects is a series of posts I usually write on the first Saturday of each month outside the general bookish theme of the blog. Today we’re talking Bill Nye’s new show!
I don’t think there’s a millennial in America today who doesn’t remember his previous show in which he made science both enjoyable and interesting for a young audience. And now he’s back. He’s partnering with Netflix on a new show to once again bring science to the masses. Each episode will focus on a particular topic. Vaccines. GMOs. Climate change. You can expect all of this to be discussed and so much more.
This type of show is important in any time period, but we have celebrities and politicians today peddling in “science” that has no basis in fact. If we’re to save and preserve our planet then we must accept and embrace science. Bill Nye is the perfect person to lead the charge.
The show premieres in early 2017, and I can guarantee I’ll be watching as soon as it’s available.
Also, could this be a precursor for a Bill Nye – Neil Degrasse Tyson 2020 presidential ticket? It’s never too early to lay the groundwork for a White House bid!
Will you be watching Bill Nye’s new show?
