This article first appeared in the St. Louis Beacon: August 27, 2008 - As Kermit the Frog said, it's not easy being green. But Bill Nye - the Science Guy - hopes to simplify the process in a new television show.
"It's so hard for us to understand, but every single thing you do affects everyone in the world," says Nye, who is also an author and inventor. "Traditionally environmentalists want you to do less. Don't drive as much. Wear dirty clothes. If you can, just don't even eat. Turns out this doesn't really appeal to people. What we have to do is find ways to do more with less and the show makes that point."
