In another installment of Future or Forgotten, Bill Nye comes to the Inverse office to try his hand at predicting the next 150 years of bacon, the environment, animals, and bacteria.

If you like eating bacon, you’re in for a real treat. Bill Nye thinks that not only will the internet’s favorite snack still be around in 150 years, but it will also be cruelty-free. Just think of all that guiltless eating the humans of 150 years from now will be able to do.

Then again, it won’t be all roses and bacon for those intrepid futuristas. Super bacteria will have humanity in the crosshairs, and if people aren’t extremely careful about how they act, there may be no one left to enjoy the bounty of the so-called meat places.

And just in case you were worried about your pets, Bill Nye thinks domestic animals will still be around, and that they’ll probably be safe because they’re so dang good at being human companions.
