Connection and green-spiration in Oakland!

By Mia Szarvas, student at Analy High School, California, and ACE Field Correspondent

So often I feel alone as a teenager with a passion to make a real change, a huge change. I feel like I am the only one who really cares about the nebulous crises that are taking place in our world: floods, droughts, rising temperatures, water shortages, shifting habitat corridors…

But that day, at the ACE leadership training in Oakland, I saw a roomful of people my age, who care just as much as me, and who have just as much motivation as me to make a change.

Be heard

Ever feel like no one is listening? Like your family or people in your neighborhood don't take climate change (or youth) seriously?!

ACE can help you raise your voice. We've got a brand new project track called Raise Your Voice - and it's all about helping you raise your voice about climate change and solutions.

Ambessa, one of our all-star educators, was so inspired by this new track that he wrote a song about it...

Introducing Chicago's Youth Representative!

My name is DanaRae Marigmen, I attend Fenwick High School and I’m the new Youth Rep for ACE in Chicago.

As an ACE Youth Rep and the voice of all ACE high schools in the Chicago area, I will be a role model, aid and voice of encouragement to everyone who is willing to make a change – a change for the essential preservation of our environment and the betterment of our lives, both locally and globally.

I believe youth are the perfect candidates to be instruments to the public about climate change, and in turn, influence everyone around them.

The Baddest Scientist On the Planet - Hot DOT of the Week

This dude is baaaaad. I'm talking Samuel L Jackson in any action movie that he's ever been in kind of bad. Or maybe, a better comparison for Hansen would be a modern day Gandhi, without all the fasting...

Check out Dr. Hansen sharing his DOT - calling on young people to lower our emissions and raise our voices...


By Michael Mosko, ACE Intern + Field Correspondent

I used to get around by wearing down the soles of my kicks, sinking into passenger seats and enjoying the musty smell of public transit. I've evolved, though, to two beautiful tires gliding across concrete streets.

Here's why...

Riding into a Future Free of Coal and Oil in LA

On October 10, 2010 –’s international day of action – there were more than 7,000 events held around the world to lower our emissions and raise our voices.

In LA, Kristina, Ethan and myself joined action team leaders, activists, friends and neighbors to rally against coal and oil in Los Angeles. Speakers included, among others, LA City Council President Eric Garcetti, Ellen Page of Juno and Inception fame (check out her hot DOT here) and an outstanding young leader in the climate movement, Matt Dang of Environmental Charter High School.

Read the speech that moved the crowd to roar as Matt stepped off stage...
