Bill Nye: Revolutionizing Energy Storage 'Could Change the World'
Bill Nye is extremely prolific, especially when it comes to YouTube videos. Just in the last few months, he has torn apart a climate denier's argument, talked about his new stance on genetically modified foods (GMOs), encouraged people to get out and explore our great national parks and sat down with President Obama in the Everglades to talk about the climate denier club in Congress.

Under the guise of responding to consumer complaints that today's energy- and water-efficient dishwashers take too long, the Department of Energy has proposed creating a new class of dishwashers that wouldn't be subject to any water or energy efficiency standards at all. The move would not only undermine three decades of progress for consumers and the environment, it is based on serious distortions of fact regarding today's dishwashers.
