Learn about Bill Nye’s mission to advocate for the importance of science, particularly in the context of climate change, in this video from SciTech Now. Nye discusses the documentary Bill Nye: Science Guy in which he opens up about who he is and describes his transition from quirky television host to advocate for science awareness among the general public. The background essay in the support materials elaborates on ice cores, a technique Nye learned about during his travels to Greenland. Scientists analyze ice cores to learn about humanity’s role in climate change.
