Unstoppable by Bill Nye

I like Bill Nye. I grew up watching his show. He’s funny and he makes learning very fun. He can take seemingly complex scientific principles and boil them down to their essence. He uses apt analogies that help things stick to your brain. And best of all, he is super passionate about science. His authenticity is contagious.

I read Undeniable a while back and loved that book. In that book, Nye was able to lay the scientific foundation for the Big Bang and evolution. He mapped out what scientists know and what they don’t know. In this work, Unstoppable, Nye does the same thing with climate change; Nye explains what we know, what we don’t know, what we can do now, and what the future holds for us.

Unstoppable is a very interesting book. If you are a climate change denier, just skip this book. If you haven’t been convinced by experts yet, then you probably will never be. However, if you are passionate about science and how science can change our world for the better, then this book is for you. Nye explains the problem, how energy works, how we harness it, how we use, and ways we can manage it starting in our own backyards to across the country.

I think this book is great and you would enjoy it.
