Think Kids Don't Care about Global Warming? Think Again.

Alec Loorz is 15 years old, a Freshman at El Camino High School, a drummer for the band, State of Emergency. But there's another reason why he rocks...
He founded Kids vs Global Warming when he was 12 years old after watching Al Gore’s movie, “an inconvenient truth.” Alec felt compelled to tell other kids about the problems we are facing. He created a presentation made specifically for youth, full of videos, animation, easy-to-understand science, and compelling motivation for kids K-college ages. He gave over 30 global warming presentations before being invited by Al Gore to be formally trained with the Climate Project in October of 2008. He is now the youngest trained presenter with The Climate Project. You can read more about him here.
Check out his blog and see how this young guy is taking action...well done, Alec!
