While us grownups are still duking it out with one another over the validity of climate change, a troop of girl scouts decided to cut through the muck and educate their fellow Grade 6 students about global warming, the importance of acting now, and how to slow down its effects.

Using a mix of cartoons, DVD clips, and humor, Junior Girl Scout Troup 1092 from Eisenhower Intermediate School in Bridgewater, New Jersey, told the assembly that global warming was their problem.

The scouts are not unfamiliar with community-based projects. In 2000, when they were only Brownies, they created a wildlife garden and bird sanctuary on Beach Street near Bradley Gardens School.
