Hey Gen C Changemakers. This is Generation Carbon. The podcast where kids like you, help grownups like us, save the planet.

We know you have tough questions about climate change, and we believe you deserve the answers!

In this episode of Generation Carbon, we are learning about Birds! Does trash in our waterways affect the birds? And what about birds that migrate to cooler temperatures. Are they in trouble if it gets warm?

Holly Hummingbird arrives at her summer feeding ground on her yearly migration only to find that the trees that were her shelter last year have been cut down. Learn how you can help!

Our Science Sparks come from Alani, Ellie and Leo. Gen C Changemakers from Alexandria Virginia and Luton, Pennsylvania. We hear what’s going on firsthand from Edie, Holly Hummingbird & Spencer Sparrow. Learn more from B.J. Glick artist, bird enthusiast & educator and Gen C Super Scientific Story Reporters Emma and Erik, from Stockholm Sweden. Hanna, from Boulder Colorado, shares what she thinks life in 2050 may look like.

Gen C Changemakers. We’d love you to get involved. If you’d like to ask a question or submit your super scientific findings in a future episode, we need Gen C science-minded story reporters on the climate case! Have your grownups visit to sign up.
