About Bill Nye

Bill Nye seems like he’s been around forever, yet he’s always doing something new, and his enthusiasm for all things science never gets old. He has harnessed social media to get his millions of followers fired up about the big things happening on Earth, especially climate change. He regularly posts Instagram pics with other celebrities and scientists who are also vocal advocates for science, like DJ Khaled, Leonardo DiCaprio, and of course Neil deGrasse Tyson. Perhaps the big news for Bill this year is the announcement of his upcoming Netflix talk show Bill Nye Saves the World where he will continue his “mission to change the world by getting people everywhere excited by the fundamental ideas in science.”
