Generation Hot

Mark Hertsgaard, Author, Generation Hot
Scott Harmon, Sustainability Advisor to Boy Scouts of America
Alec Loorz, Founder, Kids-vs-Global-Warming.com

What are kids doing about their future in a world with a swelling population, receding glaciers and weird weather? There’s a move afoot to activate 100 million boy and girl scouts to develop skills for more sustainable living. Activists such as 16-year-old Loorz are calling on adults to use bolder action on greenhouse gases. Will baby boomers heed the call? We discuss the generational climate challenge.
