Unstoppable
Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World | Bill Nye
23 posts | 9 read | 1 reading | 24 to read
New York Times bestselling author of Undeniable and former host of "Bill Nye the Science Guy" issues a new challenge to today's generation: to make a cleaner, more efficient, and happier world.For over 20 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, 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 reframes 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 to rethink the way we live and to create a cleaner, healthier, smarter world.

My 2018 #BookResolutions are to read the 3 books I borrowed from friends last year, to chip away at my TBR list and read more non-fiction, books by women, diverse authors, and classics. These are just a few of the books I hope to read this year. I'll be doing the #LitsyAtoZ & #Goodreads challenges again and I might try some other challenges too. #ReadingResolutions

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Wee Free Men is great! And Alias Grace is on my list for this year too! 2y

(Disclaimer: listened to audio) I enjoyed this book. While climate change is a touchy topic, Nye offers real statistics, scientific reasoning as to potential outcomes and actual suggestions for change. He touches on things we can all do, from little acts at home to massive planet-wide changes. Everyone screaming climate change should read this book - nobody is innocent. I will certainly be buying a copy of this for re-reading.

I met a friend for coffee at #PrairieInk last night, and of course no trip to #McNallyRobinson is complete without browsing the shelves! I basically spent all the money I saved off cover price at the SSO sale 😜 Here's my #BookHaul. Not pictured: the adorable penguin ornaments I wasn't able to resist. 🐧🐧

Current read. Bill Nye is one of the funnest audiobook listens, even when it's serious stuff.

Was lucky enough to snag a signed copy at a Black Friday thing at Barnes&Noble last year, finally getting around to reading it.

Very interesting read and I love all the silly puns he makes, just like in the show 😂. I really like how he kept the book so positive and hopeful as opposed to just focusing on the negatives of climate change.

"In parallel, we have to overcome the inanity of climate denial. The deniers have wrought havoc. They're standing outside looking right at the burning house and insisting that the yellow flames and dense smoke are not really coming from a fire. It's just the way the house looks this time of day..."
