Bill Nye’s Inspiring Reason Rally Speech is Now Online

Bill Nye‘s speech from last month’s Reason Rally is now available online and it’s a strong reminder of the challenges still ahead of us.

Nye spoke about Ark Encounter (which he added would never have received state funds if it was called the “Mosque Kiosk”), Donald Trump, renewable energy, and the need to raise scientifically literate and critically thinking children.

Without necessarily saying how to vote, Nye encouraged the crowd to make their vote count because there’s too much at stake by sitting out or voting out of spite for a candidate whose party has so little respect for science.

… I say this often enough: You have to vote. For those of you who don’t want to participate, or [are] cynical about voting — you feel that our choices are not good enough for you and your vote — would you please just sit down and shut up and let the rest of us who want to participate, who want to influence the future, get out there and vote?

Everybody this year, no matter what happens, please take the environment and climate into account when you vote.
