Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World (Bill Nye) - St. Martin's Press - 2015 - 341 pages

Bill Nye (The Science Guy) has the ability to explain scientific concepts in a way that is easy to understand for the common person.  Although he has made a living as an entertainer, he is actually a very concerned citizen who practices the policies he recommends.  Everybody should read this book.  Mr. Nye explains in details the problems the world population is facing if actions are not taken to mitigate global climate change (global warming).  In addition, he offers reasonable solutions for environmental problems.  His main suggestion is that the world needs to recognize that there are real costs related to the use of carbon fuels.  His proposals for carbon taxes and dividends are necessary and workable.  In addition, he outlines numerous ways that the average homeowner can live a better and cleaner existence.  He is in favor of clean fuels (wind, sun, motion, etc.), space exploration and better battery technology.  Me too.  [JAM 1/15/2016]
