The Kid Should See This

Go Beyond Oil (Greenpeace UK Campaign)

We’ve watched this video quite a few times in the last few weeks… it’s surfaced as a kiddo-favorite. Not only is it a beautiful animation (by Toronto-based Smart Bubble Society, “a not-for-profit motion graphic studio that promotes social justice, self-education and critical awareness”), but the piece tells the story of our recent history with fossil fuels, and then names some cleaner solutions (wind and solar energy, for example) to the challenges that we face on the energy and climate change fronts. 

Want more solutions to reducing oil consumption? There are some here and here — many that kids can help with.
