It’s rare, even in these toxic times, to see an American specifically call for the demise of an entire generation to further a political goal. Well, Bill Nye, the “Science Guy”, did it recently in an interview with the LA Times. He did it in such a way, however, that it seemed perfectly reasonable to suggest. He’d like the older generation to just “age out” because there are so many stubborn climate skeptics among them.
He said: “Climate change deniers, by way of example, are older. It’s generational. So we’re just going to have to wait for those people to ‘age out,’ as they say… it’ll happen, I guarantee you — that’ll happen.”
