You most likely know Bill Nye “The Science Guy” from your elementary school science class. But just when you thought you were done with his quirky videos, he’s come back with something new for you to hear.
In a recent Reddit forum post, “Ask Me Anything,” this famous scientist was asked about his opinion on the vegan diet and if it would help reduce our impact on climate change. Here was his answer:
“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. I look forward to the emergence of new plant-based dishes.”
The People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) believes that the “future is already here.” More and more people are switching to the vegan lifestyle and there are many online resources to help you make the switch too. Not only is the plant-based diet a healthier diet, but it is an ethical and cruelty-free lifestyle too.
