Bill Nye (the Science Guy), a staple of ’90s public television, has used his Millennial recognition for good. Instead of tragically fading into obscurity, Nye has kept his now-adult fan base engaged with approachable lectures and New York Times editorials. His Portland visit comes with its own unique tie-in: It coincides with the 38th anniversary of the Mount St. Helens eruption. Nye will explain the environmental fallout of that explosive day, answer audience questions, and kindly remind you that climate change is real. Bill! Bill! Bill!
