Haiti Struck AGAIN, Today...

The 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti about a week ago and the 6.1 magnitude aftershock came this morning! These people are in major need of money for surgery. They need pain killers to numb the pain of bones being popped back into place or limbs amputated...yikes!

While earthquakes are not caused by climate change we can see how a country with so little resources is being seriously impacted. And, to me this connects because scientists agree that the world's poorest countries will be hardest hit - at least at first - by the impacts of our changing climate.

Copenhagen Accord = EPIC FAIL

That's a slightly exaggerated statement, but Copenhagen was definitely a huge disappointment

For those of you who were unable to attend (including myself) I found this quite entertaining, again everyone is poking jokes at our climate leaders. But I honestly can't blame them.

YACC Update

Hey guys,

Terrae here, checking in about my action team, the YACC!

So although I was not able to check-in last week about my first AT meeting, it went awesome! The students really liked the first day’s lesson. It involved some basic teachings of global warming along with two videos and a group activity. It was a huge success to start this action team on a good note.

Why's It So Cold?

Snow on Bluebonnets

From Liz, resident Intern in Houston, addressing a topic that has made its mark in TX:

“It’s so cold outside, obviously this global warming thing is a hoax”

“Yeah, dude, totally”

ACE Youth Advisory Board

By Daniela Lapidous - ACE Youth Advisory Board

Hey, there! We are the inaugural Youth Advisory Board - Alec Loorz, Adarsha Shivakumar, Shreya Indukuri, and Daniela Lapidous - and we are ready to be the direct connection between ACE and our generation.

Our mission statement goes like this: "The ACE Youth Advisory Board strives to use our experiences with climate action to add a youth perspective into ACE programs and inspire other youth to take initiative."

What's Your DOT?

It's 2010 - the dawn of a new decade (not to be confused with 2012!). Over here at ACE, we've made some green resolutions to kick off a decade of change and we wanna know: what's your green resolution of 2010?

To make a great green resolution, you don’t have to go live in a cave or wear only hemp clothing, you just gotta choose a DOT - a Do One Thing. A DOT is one thing you'll do to have a positive impact on our planet.

Here are a couple of DOTs to get your gears turning:

Pics for Thought

Hmmm yeah what if we do create a better world "for nothing"?!
