15-year old the latest wall in denier's echo-chamber

Google the name “Kristen Byrnes” and you'll see a lot of buzz over her recent musings about Al Gore and James Hansen.

Headlines like “15-year-old outsmarts NASA's global warming alarmist,” and, “Teenager takes on Global Warming Scientist” are popping up all over the smogosphere. The attention seems somewhat confounding, given that this 15 year-olds work isn't uncovering any earth-shattering news or data, or anything that hasn't been bounced around the global warming denier myth chamber a thousand times already.

Check out her website here.

Thanks for thinking of us World Changing!

The World Changing head-honcho, Alex Steffen, has come out with his thoughts on “The Best Climate Change Websites.”

This might have something to do with the fact that I just uncovered evidence that Alex used to be the PR guy for ExxonMobil!

Not really.

Thanks for the nod Alex, the feeling is mutual.

In an age where celebrity antics replace issues like the war in Iraq as front page news, it can be challenging to engage audiences with 'real' global issues without losing them to Entertainment Tonight. Whether we like it or not, when celebrity speaks, we listen.

MTV's new public service announcement on Global Warming features respected artists like Pearl Jam, Rusted Root and Blackalicious who weigh in on the effects of global warming and the consequences of inaction.
