Bill Nye the New York Times Bestselling Author Guy is about to drop a new book, Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World:
The book is set to release November 10, exactly a year after the publication of his first non-children’s title Undeniable — a digestible lesson in evolution that no-doubt stemmed from Nye’s debate with creationist Ken Ham.
Unstoppable is similar to the previous book only in the sense that it sticks with the “Un” theme and carries the same tone of optimism and urgency to save us from ourselves. This time, Nye widely focuses on our mounting environmental problems, like climate change and energy consumption, and calls on us to rethink our approaches and employ our ability to innovate for the health of our planet and people.
The publisher’s summary:
Just as World War II called an earlier generation to greatness, so the climate crisis is calling today’s rising youth to action: to create a better future.
In UNSTOPPABLE, Bill Nye crystallizes and expands the message for which he is best known and beloved. That message is that with a combination of optimism and scientific curiosity, all obstacles become opportunities, and the possibilities of our world become limitless. With a scientist’s thirst for knowledge and an engineer’s vision of what can be, Bill Nye sees today’s environmental issues not as insurmountable, depressing problems but as chances for our society to rise to the challenge and create a cleaner, healthier, smarter world. We need not accept that transportation consumes half our energy, and that two-thirds of the energy you put into your car is immediately thrown away out the tailpipe. We need not accept that dangerous emissions are the price we must pay for a vibrant economy and a comfortable life. Above all, we need not accept that we will leave our children a planet that is dirty, overheated, and depleted of resources. As Bill shares his vision, he debunks some of the most persistent myths and misunderstandings about global warming. When you are done reading, you’ll be enlightened and empowered. Chances are, you’ll be smiling, too, ready to join Bill and change the world.
