Gen Y Tackles Global Warming


If you ever wondered what happened to the anti-globalization and climate change protests of the late nineties and turn of the century, then look no further than “It’s Getting Hot in Here,” the dynamic grassroots blog of the newest generation of activists. The site was originally set up by protesters at the Montreal round of climate talks in 2005 and has since grown into the authentic voice of youth climate change activism. The multimedia blog is a refreshing reminder of the undimmed enthusiasm of campus life and an insight into how protesters have moved away from the relative radicalism and violence of a decade before to a more media-savvy, sustained approach to advocacy.
