Those raised in the ’90s will recognize Bill Nye as a staple of their childhood experience, using his TV platform to turn an entire generation on to science. Bill's new mission? Using his celebrity to debunk the deluge of phony skeptics and dishonest deniers seeking to make science facts such as climate change and evolution a matter of debate while stumping for the importance of science education. Peeling back the layers of his TV persona to reveal the genuine science guy beneath, Bill Nye: Science Guy is equal parts entertaining and incisive.
