Before he can save the world next spring with his new Netflix show, famed Science Guy Bill Nye appears to want to help save Washington State.

According to The Stranger newspaper in Seattle, Nye has given his endorsement to Gov. Jay Inslee in Inslee’s reelection bid against Republican challenger Bill Bryant.

“Your governor, Jay Inslee, is an acquaintance of mine and he’s a big environmentalist,” The Stranger quotes Nye as writing in an e-mail message to supporters on Monday. “Voting is the most important thing for us, especially this year. Take the environment into account.”

Nye has been busy on Twitter juggling a couple of different priorities: promoting his upcoming Netflix show, called “Bill Nye Saves the World,” and making people aware that climate change is a big damn deal and voting is important.
