When I was young, I never found school interesting enough, so I read other books that I (actually) found interesting. The linear education model is broken.

In late 2006, I was an unassuming young sixth grader. At the time, everyone on the news was stressing over Al Gore’s documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.” You might know a little bit about it.
We did not often talk about this climate crisis in school. In fact, I do not believe that the climate crisis came up in any conversations. I had History, Math, English, Science, and Religion classes. In none of them did we talk about renewable energy or the climate crisis.
I said to myself, “What is this climate stuff everyone is talking about? Why would a guy make a documentary about it? If this is a problem, why is no one trying to solve it?”
Because none of my teachers engaged us in climate change discussion and it was not taught in schools, I did some research on my own.
This climate change stuff was a clear and straight forward problem.
