Using Science (Obviously), Bill Nye Predicts a Vegan Future

Published by Danny Prater.

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:

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.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
