Bill Nye found the apocalyptic comedy “Don’t Look Up” frighteningly realistic, but he fears a lot of people didn’t quite get it.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if the irony of ‘Don’t Look Up’ is lost on the people it was really intended for, because it’s so painfully close to what’s happening right now,” Nye said in a USA Today article on Thursday.
He said the recent Netflix film, which satirized the global response to climate change, “preached to the chorus”, although he praised its portrayal of science.
Nye’s new show, “The End Is Nye,” is a docuseries that focuses on disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes.
“I get killed at the end of the first half of every show,” he told E! News this month. “But then, with television, I come back and we have this optimistic view of the future and we pass it on.”
