The problem in society is not kids not knowing science. The problem is adults not knowing science. They outnumber kids 5 to 1, they wield power, they write legislation. When you have scientifically illiterate adults, you have undermined the very fabric of what makes a nation wealthy and strong.
– Neil deGrasse Tyson
This quote has been circling lately, and it reminded me of this video from a few years ago. If only people with the power to make the world better were as intelligent as Tyson.
