Bernie Sanders interviews Bill Nye about climate change and alternative energy, and it’s as adorable as it sounds.
EPCOT geeks will be pleased that, when Bernie bemoans Big Oil’s fixation with money, Bill replies:
“Well, that’s what I don’t get! […] They make a lot of money, and as I told the people at Exxon in 1994 when I did a job with Exxon and Ellen DeGeneres and the Walt Disney Company, ‘You guys should be in the energy business, not the oil business!’ […] They would get even richer!”
So there you have it: behind the scenes of Ellen’s Energy Adventure, Bill Nye was trying to persuade Exxon to use the one source of energy that will never run out: brain power!
Actress Ann Sanders made a bit of history this week when she stepped into the role of Anna Leonowens in the Lincoln Center Theater revival of The King and I, replacing Tony winner Kelli O'Hara. She is the first Asian-American performer to play the role on Broadway.
