High School student dreams up solution to Global Warming!

Climate Change Averted! Use more electricity by ACing the whole planet! Brilliant.

Sample comment:

I propose that, instead of wasting electricity on giant air conditioners, we balance the climate properly. We create a giant ice cube and drop it into the ocean to counteract global warming. If it gets worse, we’ll just make a bigger ice cube each season.

She’s thought about this before:

    Jarret Voytilla its disgusting how poorly educated some people are

    Stephanie ૐ Petra At first I was like, LOL 😀
    Then I realized she wasn't kidding and I was like O.O
    And then I thought about the future of the planet because of geniuses like her, and I was like :/

    Amanda Stephens Dislike. I think you've been unfair to her, showing her up like this, broadcasting her globally.

    elephantjournal.com Amanda, the video was posted by her father, and yes could be a bit cruel…but we've chosen just to respect the childlike innocence and humor in it. There's nothing in what I said, I hope, that bespeaks of mean-ness! It's okay, we're all silly! At least she's thinking about solutions! ~ W.

    That was my first thought: At least she's trying to think of solutions rather than not giving a shit…no matter how ridiculous it may be.

    What was your point in posting this? As a high school English Teacher, I was excited at the possibility that a teenager could have come up with something that her more "intelligent" elders had not yet thought of. Instead, I am disappointed at this video. More so, I am disappointed in the lack of discernment and sense of responsibility that you have in spreading it.

    Ditto for me…:(

  7. […] In fact, I still do. Amazing Spider-man, Uncanny X-men, The Dark Knight — from the first panel frame to the last double-page full bleed, I’ve been hooked. As a child, I spent hours in the comic book section of the mall, disappearing into worlds where super powered aliens in red and blue tights were the social norm. But at a certain age I was expected to view comic book archetypes as “silly” and unrealistic. If I showed any interest in cultivating my love of comic books, I ran the risk of being shunned by the majority of my social group (ah, high school). […]
