In US news and current events today, the COVID 19 coronavirus pandemic has also sparked a wave of anti Asian racism in the US and abroad, thanks in large part to President Trump and the Trump administration labelling it the China Virus and worse. Now, in the face of rising anti-Asian racism and COVID racism, Asian American and Pacific Islander AAPI activists are making their voices heard and teaching us how to confront and fight anti asian racism in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated racism and tensions against the Asian and AAPI communities, and its up to all of us, including Melissa King Top Chef, to put an end to it.

This is part one, recorded before I left for VidCon but not finished editing until after I got back.

How the Science Guy got his start in Seattle - KING 5 Evening

Before he was Bill Nye the Science Guy, he was just a guy, working as an engineer at Boeing, when he happened to pop into a comedy club.

They had a Steve Martin lookalike contest and I won, Nye said.

That led to a friendship with Ross Shafer, the original host of KING 5's comedy show, 'Almost Live!'

I crossed paths with Ross at comedy clubs, and John Keister at comedy clubs, and so they said, 'Hey, do you want to help write for this show?' I started submitting jokes that weren't especially good.

RELATED: Try out these science experiments with the family over Thanksgiving

While working as a writer for the show in the late 80's, Bill was on hand when opportunity knocked.

A guest didn't show up.

Somehow, they had to fill six minutes.

Ross, at a writers' meeting, just offhand said, 'Bill, why don't you do that stuff, you're always talking about science. You could be Bill Nye the Science Guy.'

And so I did the household uses of liquid nitrogen, he joked.

The bit was a hit.

After that, it became clear that the Science Guy should be a recurring character.

In addition to the Science Guy, Bill also appeared as other characters including Speedwalker, the superhero who fights crime while adhering to international rules of speed walking.

He was having fun. But he wanted more.

I was worried about the future.

Bill and his local producers took the Science Guy to a young audience worldwide with the syndicated Disney program, Bill Nye the Science Guy.

Getting kids excited about science was the thing that I really wanted to do with my life.

These days, Nye serves as an important voice for science in the media, and is a board member for the Mount St. Helens Institute, which is dedicated to bringing scientific learning to the next generation.

Decoding the Science of 2020 with Bill Nye

Science is the process and the body of knowledge that enables us humans to know nature. So far, it’s the best idea humans have ever had.

Let’s spend some time together uncovering the science that affects our everyday lives. We’ll explore three topics particularly relevant to the here and now: the science of skin color, the impact of climate change and the transmission of coronavirus. We’ll examine molecules and maps, evaluate atmospheres and aerospace, and experiment with particles and powders, all in the name of science.

Bill Nye Wants Florida to Vote for Science | NowThis Earth

Bill Nye is urging Floridians to #VoteForScience as climate change intensifies extreme weather events, potentially forcing people from their homes.

Early voting in Florida has begun, and science is on the ballot.

Much of Florida could soon be under 4 feet of water, potentially forcing 2 million people from their homes by 2100. Climate change has made hurricanes in the region stronger — in fact, they could double in frequency by the end of the century.

'Look everybody, we've gotta vote,' says Bill Nye.

Floridians can get their absentee or mail-in ballots by October 24 and send it in by November 3.

Bill Nye The Science Guy On Creationism + Science Education

Bill Nye, the former host of the popular television program Bill Nye: The Science Guy, said Wednesday that he didn't think his stance on creationism affected his ability to educate young scientists.

Climate change should not be a political issue. Evolution should not be a political issue, he told host Kojo Nnamdi during his hour-long appearance on the Kojo Nnamdi show.

He said he hoped debate around the issue would be resolved in five years' time.

TV's 'Science Guy' Bill Nye and Ken Ham of the Creation Museum debated the origins of the universe.

FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: apus005005

TV's Science Guy Bill Nye says there are infinite discoveries yet to be made about the universe and how we got here.
Ken Ham, the man Nye traveled to Kentucky to debate Tuesday night, says all those answers are already in the Bible.
Over the course of the two-and-a-half hour debate at Kentucky's Creation Museum, both men had plenty to say, but neither left convinced of the other's argument.
Nye, true to his TV persona, delivered a passionate and animated defense of science and challenged the teachings on display at the museum that the earth is 6,000 years old and man once lived alongside dinosaurs.
If we accept Mr. Ham's point of view ... that the Bible serves as a science text and he and his followers will interpret that for you, I want you to consider what that means, Nye said. It means that Mr. Ham's word is to be more respected than what you can observe in nature, what you can find in your backyard in Kentucky.
Nye said scientists can track the age of stars based on their distance from earth.
How could there be billions of stars more distant than 6,000 years, if the world is only 6,000 years old? Nye asked Ham.
After a question from an audience member about where atoms and matter comes from, Nye said scientists are making discoveries on that front every day.
Ham, founder of the Creation Musuem, said he already knows the answer.
Bill, I want to tell you, there is a book that tells where atoms come from, and its starts out, `In the beginning ...,' Ham said, referring to the Bible's creation story.
Ham showed the theater audience of about 800 people _ and those watching the debate live on the Internet _ slides to back up his assertions.
The Bible is the word of God, Ham said. I admit that's where I start from.
He also introduced scientists who he said were creationists.
I believe the word `science' has been high-jacked by secularists, Ham said.
Regardless of the outcome, the debate was a boon for the museum, which opened in 2007 after being built on $27 million worth of private donations. Ham said his Facebook page on Tuesday had hundreds of thousands of views.
I think it shows you that the majority of people out there, they're interested in this topic, they want to know about this, they don't want debate shut down, Ham said before the debate.
Some scientists were critical of Nye for agreeing to debate the head of a Christian ministry that is dismissive of evolution.
Jerry Coyne, a professor of ecology and evolution at the University of Chicago, wrote on his blog that Nye's appearance will be giving money to organizations who try to subvert the mission Nye has had all his life: science education, particularly of kids. Coyne pointed out that the Creation Museum will be selling DVDs of the event.
The museum quickly sold out its 800 seats, thanks in part to Nye's celebrity as the former host of Bill Nye The Science Guy, a 1990s science education TV program that is still played in some classrooms. Some people in the audience wore Bill Nye is my home boy T-shirts. A few more fans wore a bow tie and Nye's signature lab coat.
Nye waded into the evolution debate in an online video in 2012 that urged parents not to pass their religious-based doubts about evolution on to their children. Ham rebutted Nye's statements with his own online video with comments from scientists who work at the museum.
The Creation Museum said visitors from 29 states bought seats for the debate.
Nye said technology keeps the U.S. ahead as a world leader and he worried that if creationism is taught to children the country would fall behind.
