Inconvenient Truth for Kids

I wish Lil' F was ready for this presentation this Saturday at Town Hall. Unfortunately, he's not even out of the womb. However, if you're in Seattle and have kids ages 8 to 12, this looks to be a great educational opportunity:
The Earth is heating up; early signs of global warming are already being seen and action must be taken now to confront the coming crisis. To help children understand the science of climate change, Lisa Shimizu, of KEXP 90.3 FM and The Climate Project, presents a 40-minute slide show especially designed for children 8-12. This presentation served as the basis for Al Gore’s Academy Award-winning film, An Inconvenient Truth. Local 5th grade science teacher Laura Maier leads an interactive experience that graphically demonstrates the principles of climate change. Every family will receive a copy of The Low Carbon Diet, a how-to guide showing easy ways for families to reduce their carbon footprint.
I am looking forward to reading the World Changing book aloud to Lil' F as soon as he comes out... as well as Good Night Moon (which might be more apropos for getting him to sleep).

BTW - as mentioned above, we're still waiting for our little guy to be delivered, and we're in full nesting mode. So I'm still taking a break from Cracks, most likely until mid April.
