Girl Solves Global Warming is Today's BIG Thing - JUN 20, 2011 We tend to overthink complex solutions to seemingly complex issues. I'm not saying that global warming is real, nor do I think that the girl in this video does, but in 45 seconds she is able to clearly sum up the problem, and present a simple, elegant solution in terms that almost everyone can understand. I've been on the west coast for a dozen or so years, so the landmarks in the background are not ringing a bell, but it certainly looks like the dome at MIT behind her. If she isn't already a student, she should send in this video as an application and be accepted on the spot. We need more minds like this.
