For over twenty years, Bill Nye has inspired legions of fans with an empowering message: the combination of scientific curiosity and human ingenuity can transform obstacles into opportunities and unlock a future of endless possibilities. Now, in Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World, Bill applies his message of technological optimism to the serious challenge facing our species: climate change. With a scientist's rigorous understanding of how things are and an engineer's vision of how things could be, Bill completely re-frames the issue. He sees today's environmental crisis not as the end of progress but as an Opportunity for a tremendous new beginning - a moment for our society rethink the way we live and to create a cleaner, healthier, smarter world. We need not remain shackled to the inefficient technologies of the Industrial Revolution; we need not accept pollution and environmental ruin as the inevitable costs of a vibrant economy; above all, we need not leave our children a planet that is depleted and overheated. The urgent task here is not saving the Earth. lt's saving the Earth for us - for humanity. We can do that, but the moment to begin is now.
When you are done reading, you will be enlightened and inspired. You will see a new path forward. You will be ready to join Bill and change the world.
