"Bill Nye The Science Guy," a climate-change activist, is a big fan of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and her own push for the Green New Deal, he tweeted Saturday night.

"AOC gets it. She sees that fear is dividing us. We can address income inequality. We can address climate change, if we get together and get to work. #SXSW @AOC"

SXSW is the South by Southwest Festival,  a music, film, and discovery conference being held in Austin, Texas, this week.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez responded to Nye's support with a simple tweet of "Bill! Bill! Bill!"

The two posed for a photo in Austin after AOC answered Nye's questions, as shown in a video tweeted by Bloomberg News.

"Do you have a plan to work with people in Congress that are afraid" of paying for illegal immigrants and climate change initiatives, Nye asked her. "People are afraid of what will happen if we try to make these big changes."

She responded:

"One of the keys to dismantling fear is dismantling a zero-sum mentality . . . It means the rejection outright of someone else's gain necessitates my loss. . . . We can give without a take is where we're going to technologically."

"We're viewing progress as a cost, instead of as an investment. The difference between a cost and an investment is an investment yields returns."
