Bill Nye 'The Science Guy' blasts U.S. for resisting high-speed rail

(The following appeared on the Huffington Post website on February 24, 2011.)

Bill Nye, once known as "The Science Guy" thanks to his incredibly successful TV series of the same name, thinks the U.S. "should be embarrassed" at its lack of a high-speed rail system.

During an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Nye claimed hyperbolically that "every other country in the world" had high-speed rail, before explaining his belief that it was a development the United States had failed to replicate due to the "political" problems surrounding the issue.

The full story and a video appears on the Huffington Post website.
