Nickelodeon’s Kids and the Impact on Climate Change appearance

By | Uncategorized | One Comment

I had a fun time filming for Nickelodeon’s “Kids and the Impact on Climate Change” special. I met some amazing kids and learned some new things too. If you didn’t catch it on tv tonight, hopefully the highlights will be online. We filmed against a green screen surrounding us so it was really cool to see how they dropped in a background on the show. Earth Day is almost here but you don’t have to wait until 4/22 to make a difference. Pick up a piece of trash or recycle what you can. Every bit helps!

I’m so excited that the creator of the cartoon JUMP START, Robb Armstrong sent me his original illustration board of today’s episode!

Thank you Robb for sending this to me. It’s so cool!
