Bill Nye was always the absolute MASTER of explaining literally any and every scientific concept in ways that were easy to understand and absorb, and also incredibly entertaining — for kids...

When educating children about climate change, it’s important to make sure the information is age-appropriate, you use positive, empowering language and you remember to revisi...
