Walking for climate change awareness

Greta Brown is a real public educator. She doesn't work for a public school or any other public institution. She's a Unitarian minister who has decided that climate change poses such a threat to us that she must go out and try to convert the masses to wake from our ignorant slumber. She blogs for adults and for children. That's not so different in the digital age.

Now she's walking really really far to explain to as many of us as possible what's at stake. The New York Times has an interesting story about her here. She faces no shortage of problems ranging from talking with fundamentalist religious people who deny climate change to people, out of sincere kindness, offer her single-use plastic bottles that are themselves a waste. It's a testament to the magnitude of the problems we face.
