Date Mon, August 21 2017

“Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World” by Bill Nye

Date Wed, August 2 2017

While Bill focused on convincing the reader that evolution was real, Unstoppable seems less like a debate piece. Bill does take time to discuss and explain climate change (he compares the Earth to our physical homes, which require upkeep), but the assumption is that global warming is real.
