Maybe you are like me. You have read several articles about how serious climate change is. The next logical step in addressing a problem is drawing up a plan and taking action to fix the problem. In Bill Nye’s Unstoppable, we receive deliverance in the form of manual in tackling this big picture problem of climate change. Bill does a great job at explaining what we are currently doing (or should be doing) and what we may be able to do in the near future to tackle these issues. Most importantly though, he tackles these issues with a basket full of analogies to scientific problems with examples from our every day life. Bill believes we are capable when we put the right effort to come up with solutions to climate change. Each chapter is framed in a similar way. Outlying the issue at hand, what we can do right now to fix the problem, and hypothesizing on what we will be able to do in the near future to help the problem further after proper research and technological investment. But don’t take my word on it, read the Science’s Guy’s own words on the topic today by picking this book up from the Andersen Library.
