Undeniable : evolution and the science of creation by Bill Nye( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sparked by a controversial debate in February 2014, Bill Nye has set off on an energetic campaign to spread awareness of evolution and the powerful way it shapes our lives. In Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation, he explains why race does not really exist; evaluates the true promise and peril of genetically modified food; reveals how new species are born, in a dog kennel and in a London subway; takes a stroll through 4.5 billion years of time; and explores the new search for alien life, including aliens right here on Earth. With infectious enthusiasm, Bill Nye shows that evolution is much more than a rebuttal to creationism; it is an essential way to understand how nature works -- and to change the world. It might also help you get a date on a Saturday night
Unstoppable : harnessing science to change the world by Bill Nye( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than twenty years, Bill Nye "the Science Guy" 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, Bill applies his message of technological optimism to one of the most serious challenges 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, he completely reframes the issue of today's environmental crisis, and views it 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. We need not remain shackled to the inefficient technologies of the Industrial Revolution; we need not accept pollution and environmental ruin as the inevitable costs of a vibrant economy; above all, we need not leave our children a planet that is depleted and overheated. The urgent task here is not saving the Earth--it's saving the Earth for us, for humanity. We can do that, but the moment to begin is now.--
Everything all at once : how to unleash your inner nerd, tap into radical curiosity, and solve any problem by Bill Nye( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 1,178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everyone has an inner nerd just waiting to be awakened by the right passion. Bill Nye will help you find yours. Here Bill shows you how to develop critical thinking skills and create change, using his "everything all at once" approach that leaves no stone unturned. Whether addressing climate change, the future of our society as a whole, personal success, or stripping away the mystery of fire walking, there are certain strategies that get results: looking at the world with relentless curiosity, being driven by a desire for a better future, and being willing to take the actions needed to make change happen. He shares how he came to create this approach -- starting with his Boy Scout training (it turns out that a practical understanding of science and engineering is immensely helpful in a capsizing canoe) and moving through the lessons he learned as a full-time engineer at Boeing, a stand-up comedian, CEO of The Planetary Society, and, of course, as Bill Nye The Science Guy. This is the story of how Bill Nye became Bill Nye and how he became a champion of change and an advocate of science. It's how he became The Science Guy. Bill teaches us that we have the power to make real change. Join him in ... dare we say it ... changing the world
