Signs of a changing climate

Last Thursday a giant ice island broke off of the Petermann Glacier in Greenland.

Now, this "ice island" is ginormous -- scientists say it's 4 times the size of New York City, easily, and contains enough fresh water to keep the Hudson River flowing for two years...

Bike Technology is Delicious

At the 4th annual Youth Climate Action Network (Youth CAN) Summit at MIT, hosted by the climate superstars at the Boston Latin School, ACE Northeast ran into our local partner Bikes not Bombs.

And I want to pause for a second to show you some of Bikes Not Bombs' sweetest projects - from their Earn-a-Bike program where youth build their own bikes and learn all about bike mechanics, safety, and environmental issues (talk about a marketable skill!), to their international program that's shipped over 40,000 bikes to Central America, the Caribbean and Africa over the past 25 years.

Gulf oil disaster update: people, wildlife, how to help

BP says they are close to permanently sealing off the well 5,000 feet beneath the ocean that is leaking millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. But, "close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades" - so we'll wait for final confirmation before we take that one to the bank.

What we do want to do, though, is give you an update on where the wildlife and people in the Gulf are at, more than 100 days since the disaster began back in April...

Hot Friday night with Dave Matthews Band!

Last Friday, ACE was out in the 102* heat at National Stadium in Washington, DC with the Dave Matthews Band.

Message from ACE’s Founder

I am the founder, and Chairman of the Board of the Alliance for Climate Education (ACE). ACE’s mission is to educate high school students about the science behind climate change and inspire them to take action to curb its causes.

I am writing this blog post in response to a PRWatch.org Special Report, “Does BP Have an ACE Up Its Sleeve on Climate Education?” It is unfortunate to get distracted from our important work, but this report is based on falsehoods and inaccuracies and we must set the record straight. This letter will lay out the facts on the most egregious errors in this report.

Biobus Day 5: Clark Kent = Ethan Burke?

Now, Ethan isn't your normal ACE Educator. He's a superhero trapped in an educator's body.

Biobus Day 4: skatepark, solar concert, and the San Diego police

“360? Okay.”

A young skater who looked about 13 years old dropped into a 15 ft vert ramp from the 2006 X-Games. Teens and kids on skateboards, bikes, and scooters were shredding all over the 40,000 sq ft Krause Family skatepark in San Diego.

The ACE Biobus arrived on the scene to provide further entertainment. The Wiley One unpacked instruments and amplifiers for a solar-powered concert on the rooftop of Bluebird.
