Looks like we don't have Bill Nye salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1[on how he makes the average person understand science] You have to have learning objectives - things you want to get across. You want to make a point: Humans and dinosaurs did not live concurrently. If you get the adjacent carbon dating of volcanic soil, hat's cool. But what I want you to get is that ancient dinosaurs and humans did not live at the same time. The rest is gravy.
2Science rules!
3Our country is the only country in the world that has some people that don't believe in evolution. America is still the leader in scientific advancement, and yet we have adults who want to ignore the evidence of millions and millions of years to believe something much more complicated and complex with zero proof. It's important that our children are raised to be educated, well-rounded tax paying citizens that understand the importance of technology and science. If you're an adult and you choose not to believe in science, fine, but please don't prevent your children from learning about it and letting them draw their own conclusions. I think in 30-40 years this won't even be an issue, but right now it's a major concern for a country that has a significant amount of adults raising children to ignore the facts and the evidence surrounding them about our universe, our creation and our well-being.
4[advice to young scientists] Try things then clean up after yourself. Then try some more things and clean that up too.
