Summary
Now, in 'Unstoppable', Bill applies his message of technological optimism to the serious challenge 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, Bill completely reframes the issue. He sees today's environmental crisis 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
