Almost exactly one year after Bill Nye visited Beatrice, Nebraska to witness the total solar eclipse, Progressive Omaha is hosting a free screening of the film Bill Nye: Science Guy. Bill Nye is a man on a mission: to stop the spread of anti-scientific thinking across the world. The former star of the popular kids show “Bill Nye The Science Guy” is now the CEO of The Planetary Society, an organization founded by Bill’s mentor Carl Sagan, where he’s launching a solar propelled spacecraft into the cosmos and advocating for the importance of science, research, and discovery in public life. With intimate and exclusive access —as well as plenty of wonder and whimsy — this behind-the-scenes portrait of Nye follows him as he takes off his Science Guy lab coat and takes on those who deny climate change and a science-based world view. The film features Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ann Druyan, and many others

The climate is changing now! We should too. Citizens’ Climate Lobby is working towards legislation that would:
- Place a fee on fossil fuels at the source: well, mine or port of entry.
- Distribute the net revenues to U.S. households to offset higher energy costs.
- Include a border tariff adjustment to discourage businesses from relocating where they can emit more CO2. This will also encourage other nations to adopt equivalent carbon pricing.
Join in for a 1-hour informational conference call on Wednesdays at 7:00pm.
