Bill Nye is feeling down. He's visiting his therapist – Dr. Arnold Schwarzenegger – wondering why he just doesn't feel like himself lately. He's been trying to push past it, but he feels as if a horrible weight is on his shoulders, and life seems so empty, so meaningless. The therapist listens sympathetically, and diagnoses the cause: Bill is suffering from grief. Climate change grief.
Thus begins the most unorthodox hour ever devoted to the subject of climate change. With the encouragement of Dr. Schwarzenegger, Bill Nye will walk through the five stages of climate change grief – from denial to acceptance – and along the way, he'll explore what's gone wrong with our planet and how we can start to turn things around.
