Turning the climate crisis on its head
With a scientist's thirst for knowledge and an optimist's vision of possibility, Bill Nye sees today's environmental issues not as insurmountable problems but as a chance for society to rise to the challenge and create a cleaner, healthier, smarter world.
Nye contends that we need not accept that transportation consumes half our energy; that dangerous emissions are the price we must pay for a vibrant economy and a comfortable life; and that we will leave our children a planet that is dirty, overheated, and depleted of resources. Along the way, he debunks some of the most persistent myths about global warming.
Just as World War II called an earlier generation to greatness, so the climate crisis is calling us to create a better future.
"Nye delves into the science, math, and engineering behind global warming, the technologies that are causing it and the technologies that can save us.... "Unstoppable" is unapologetically science-stuffed." -Christian Science Monitor
