Description by OLDIES.com:
With more than 28 Emmys and a slew of other prestigious awards, Disney's resident way-cool scientist knows how to get kids fired up about science. Whether you're learning about earth science or engaging in a complex discussion about genetics, Bill Nye's enthusiasm for all things science is contagious. It's easy to see why some people hate storms. They're big, loud, and often accompanied by rain. But without storms to distribute heat, the tropical regions of the Earth would be too hot to inhabit - and the sub polar regions too cold.
Storms can be very impressive, whether they be summer electrical ones with thunder and lightning, or blizzards that close schools in winter. However, if there were no storms to distribute rain, parts of the Earth would be uninhabitable due to high heat. The standup scientist discusses the benefits of storms in BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY: STORMS in his usual entertaining fashion. He has a degree from Cornell to back up the science, and some actual experience doing standup comedy to support the crazy antics and silly humor of his award-winning show.
