Amazing kids working for the environment.

Doing my part for Blog Action Day, I wanted to let you know about an amazing 14-year-old kid named Alec Lorze, who started his own website called Kids Vs. Global Warming. According to the homepage: "We are a group of kids that Educate other kids about the science of global warming and Empower them to take action. Through educational presentations, community activism projects, multi-media, and leadership training, we empower youth to use their voice, and remind kids that WE MATTER! and there really is something we can do about global warming."

Check out the website. Or, better yet, have your kids check it out. It's quite impressive, well-researched, lots of links to facts, and it appears that young Alec is now a sought-after speaker on the topic of global warming and youth environmental activism.

Please, this is total left wing propaganda!

It's a 14-year-old kid, lighten up. And I am soooooo not going to have a scientific argument with you on the validity of global warming. Take that to another blog!

I thought it was global cooling now?

Who can keep track? It sure seems cooler now, and this past summer was a bust!
