Bill Nye/Begley Jr. Green Rivalry Still On, Escalating

Just under a year ago, word leaked on an epic rivalry between neighbors Bill Nye the Science Guy and actor Ed Begley Jr. The competition? To see who could lead the green(er) lifestyle — something Begley has for decades championed.

Now, since Nye moved into the neighborhood two years ago, the stakes are being continuously raised. Here’s a low-down of who’s got what:

>>Nye installed a solar system that has many more features (and probably more efficient) than Begley’s 15-year old version.

>>Begley installed rain barrels to offset his wife’s 20-minute showers — and is also now getting ready to add an underground cistern for even more storage.

>>Begley has Astro Turf instead of a real lawn, composts his garbage, and has a sprinkler system (for the garden) that automatically checks the weather and shuts down if it is forecast to rain.

>>Nye keeps raccoons out of his garden with an electric fence powered by a matchbox-sized solar panel. Ouch.

>>Begley’s fence is made from recycle plastic milk cartons. Nye has a fence and patio cover made from the same.

While Nye admits that he’ll probably never overtake the more than 20 years head-start that Begley has, he’s still not backing down from the challenge — even when others attempt to detail his attempts.

Last year at this time, we asked who would ultimately win. An astounding 76% predicted a Nye upset. Let’s see what everyone thinks this time around:
