In a recent “Ask Me Anything” session on Reddit, the past met the future when nostalgia-inducing celebrity scientist Bill Nye (“The Science Guy”) predicted where the food industry was headed, and we couldn’t agree more. It turns out there’s just too much evidence for a scientist (or anyone else) to ignore when it comes to the devastating effects of animal agriculture on the planet.
When one Reddit user asked Nye, “What are your thoughts on animal agriculture and the promotion of a vegan diet [so] as to reduce our impact on climate change?” this was his reply:
We couldn't agree more with @BillNye's thoughts on how raising animals for food impacts the environment! #Vegan is the future. #AskBillNye pic.twitter.com/JXIritKApS

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 [are] just delicious stand-alone coconut preparations. Cooking is a competitive business. I look forward to the emergence of new plant-based dishes.
The good news is that future is already here. PETA keeps track of all the latest vegan food trends and new products every day, and we’ve got all the resources that you’ll need to get started on your journey toward a plant-based lifestyle. Not only will going vegan help the environment just in time for Earth Day, it’ll also help you get healthier and mean a world of difference for animals.
