So a video has been circling the internet recently and I think it’s something that everyone needs to watch. If you haven’t seen it already a video of Bill Nye The Science guy has been circulating social media in an attempt to show us that we need to change our ways. It isn’t the same Bill Nye however, as he takes to swearing at the audience in hopes that they’ll actually listen
He faces the camera and looks as if he is fed up before he says, “Grow the f**k up. You’re not children anymore. I didn’t mind explaining photosynthesis to you when you were 12. But you’re adults now.”
Bill Nye has been a science superhero for almost any student going through middle school. Students, including myself, would get so excited as we walked into science class and would see the rolling tv set up, we knew we’d be learning from Bill. So seeing such an iconic scientist telling our leaders that “the planet is on f***ing fire” and lighting a small globe on fire shortly afterwards, well it definitely catches a person’s attention.
He then goes on to say that we have solutions but they aren’t free, like everything we use in life. Bill Nye has tried to tell us multiple times that we need to get our act together and now that the human race only has until 2030 to figure out a solution, and I think it’s finally time we listened.
