Oh absolutely. This is just my personal impression of him: and being a children’s edutainer (education and entertainment) I consider a very high profession that doesn’t get enough credit.
I give him great kudos for his media successes and viral power and his interest in sharing his love of science with people.
I’m not attacking him. I do children’s education/entertainment as well and I have a very high respect for him in that role.
I wouldn’t mind him entering politics. I think that’s just what he’s been doing: his subject matter has been shifting towards the political over the last few years: I’ve been watching his career on and off and politics is his next logical choice.
of how Nye has gotten more political than Science over the past few years, compare Nye’s style to: VSauce. VSauce is where Bill Nye was years ago:
but Vsauce is not political. Nye has gotten more outspoken and political. So, political is a natural next step for him.
