Bill Nye, also known as "The Science Guy" hosted a Q and A session where he called plant-based diets "the future."
He is best known as the host of the PBS children's science show Bill Nye the Science Guy, and for his many subsequent appearances in popular media as a science educator. Currently, he is the CEO of The Planetary Society.
The following question was asked by reddit user "DownAndOutInLondon" he said "Hey Bill,
What are your thoughts on animal agriculture and the promotion of a vegan diet as to reduce our impact on climate change?"
Nye Responded: "Plant-based diets are the future. I look forward to food preparations that are not "derivative bits," as we say in comedy writing. Instead of "coconut bacon," for example, I hope there is just delicious stand-alone coconut preparations. Cooking is a competitive business. I look forward to the emergence of new plant-based dishes."
