…are either dead, not scientists, or not American. They are:
Albert Einstein, 6 percent
Bill Gates, 6 percent
Al Gore, 6 percent
Stephen Hawking, 2 percent
Bill Nye the Science Guy, 2 percent
Ben Franklin, 1 percent
Thomas Edison, 1 percent
Of course, most Americans can’t even identify a living scientist. And note that Bill Nye is actually an engineer.
Details on all this here.
Gee, does anybody else think American science has a massive PR problem?
