Alec Loorz, the 16-year-old California Wunderkind who founded “Kids vs Global Warming: Empowering Youth to Lead the Green Revolution“,  is now organizing an iMatter March —  aka “Million Kid March” — to take place on Mothers’ Day, May 8, 2011.

Watch Alec’x 12-minute TED address, “We Need a Revolution” —

Alec became a committed climate change activist at age 12 after watching Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth”. He has been busy organizing and delivering empowering speeches to youth ever since. At a recent Bioneers 2010 event Loorz announced the  iMatter March. He called it a “Million Kid March” for climate and energy action, calling on youth and supporters from all around the U.S.and beyond to organize and march on Mother’s Day. The purposes: raise awareness about the perils of climate change,  reflect on our relationship with the biosphere, and call for strong action on alternative energy sources.

“It’s our planet now,” says Alec. “We’re going to have to grow up and face the consequences of what the world does, or fails to do.”
