New York Times movie critic Andy Webster made the new documentary Bill Nye: Science Guy a “Critics Pick,” and the online headline sold it hard: “‘Bill Nye: Science Guy,’ a Portrait of a Fighter for Facts.” A photo caption gushed: “Bill Nye has a new mission: challenging climate-change deniers.” With jail time, apparently, though the Times doesn’t get into that:
In the film “Bill Nye: Science Guy,” Mr. Nye, the 1990s children’s-television personality with the signature bow tie, warns of “an anti-science movement” afoot in this country. And this delightful, revealing documentary, directed by David Alvarado and Jason Sussberg, offers evidence supporting that assessment.
Mr. Nye, who left his Emmy-winning series after around 100 episodes, has embraced a new mission: educating an older generation as he champions space exploration and challenges creationists and climate-change deniers.
What credentials? Nye’s engineering degree? His past as a children’s-TV show host? His honorary degrees?
Webster’s fan note didn’t bother making a single nod toward balance:
The documentary…accompanies Mr. Nye to Greenland, where he witnesses melting ice caps and ice-core studies revealing climate temperatures of centuries past and our fossil-fuel-poisoned present.
Most inspiring, it finds him at a conference of adoring science teachers, who applaud him as a defender of all they hold dear.
