When we make stuff, stuff happens. Acclaimed "Science Guy" Bill Nye examines the everyday stuff of our lives and the far-reaching effects our actions have on the planet.  Teachers can utilize the keen delivery of Bill Nye to help students understand human interaction with the environment, the ways in which our own technology can help or hurt the environment, and actions we can implement to improve our use of resources.   

Bill Nye heads into the garage to explore the transportation choices we face every day. Examining our dependence on oil, friends stop by to share ways to reduce pollution and make our vehicles more environmentally friendly. In this program, riding a bike is proposed as the most efficient mode of transportation, while a look at fuel alternatives and electric cars reveals the pros and cons of each option.
