The evolution of Bill Nye, gloves-off science guy

The Science Guy has removed the kid gloves. Now he's got some tough talk for adults.

Bill Nye "The Science Guy" has removed the kid gloves. These days, the long-time child educator is talking evolution with adults -- and reprimanding those who tout creationism as a viable alternative. 

Nye joins guest host Wab Kinew to discuss his new book, Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation, and why he's shedding his nice guy image to talk tough on pressing issues. 

"I'm just trying to change the world here," he laughs.

Want to compare lessons? Watch Bill Nye explain evolution to kids in an archival episode of Bill Nye: The Science Guy, as well as the viral debate against creationist Ken Ham referenced in the interview.
